Traditions

There comes a time when a tradition no longer serves the purpose for which it was started.  This thought came to me as I sat at my mother's house.  She is cooking chitterlings.  My son and I are not big on meat and she has high blood pressure.  Really, Mom!!! I think. 

There comes a time to break a cycle of useless behaviors.  The chitterlings are best left in the hog, IMHO.  My plans for the holidays are to sit and to sit .  I shall move when my body demands food but otherwise, I shall do nothing. 

After the holidays, I shall move to a new phase of life.  I plan to be more active than I have been in 2013. I lost some traditions in 2013 when my elders died.  The good of their ways I shall keep but the things that are no longer viable I shall allow to be buried with them. 

It is time we evolve as a species.  May 2014 be the year we leave behind those Traditions that no longer serve us.

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.
