Day 47 2/26/2012

My weekend has been full. This weekend I had plans to do nothing but rest. However, I found myself more active than ever. I attempted to do a good deed on Saturday costing myself several hours of rest. Lack of rest lately has thrown my body cycle off by more than a week. I am stressing. I have started the B Complex. I am not getting as much water into my system as I need. My vision is not normal because of the dehydration but I am unable to increase my intake of water without cramps. My entire body is swollen. This week starting small with upper body work. I must do something to release the pressure from the swelling. All of the health issues aside, I am happy. Today church was very funny. We had Catholicism explained to us in satire. The unfortunate part was my son did not get the satire and was frighten. Back story: My son has been attending New Age\New Thought since my preganancy. I had to explain to my son the satire of the presentation. He was very frighten of the number of sins one had to remember in Catholicism

The Pure Driven Snow in Mississippi

Not another gun violence blog post

It is simple in my view, we have a problem.  We must ask why are assault weapons, weapons that spray when fired, required in civilian life.  I am not against gun ownership. I do question those who are arming themselves with weapons more suited for battle than stopping home invasion.  Are these people expecting the American government to attack them? Why?

As details emerge from this latest mass shooting, it becomes more clear, we have a problem that is not solved by more guns.

Work to do

I am typing a few quick thoughts today.  This thought is about White people being real.  When I returned to Mississippi in 2002, I had planned to only be here two years.  I didn't wish my kids to be in the oppressiveness of Mississippi too long.   I like other young Black people left this state before the ink was dry decades earlier.  When I returned in 2002, I was to learn of a silent change in the state, White folks waking-up. 

They are sadly still not the majority in 2017 but they are growing daily.  Trump has helped many White people face the mirror no longer able to deny the truth.  They are now facing the results of hate without the filter of Confederate glasses.  Mississippi is a wreck and holding on to a divisive symbol of hate, our flag.  Centuries of hate in the state has left the state destitute to the point even White people are leaving in large numbers.   Those now leaving are exporting hate to other states that have done well economically by ending policy of hate.
