" Remember: Upon the conduct of each depends the fate of all"
Alexander the Great

I have been crying all day about the injustices of the world mostly in my country
the USA. I can not fathom why a president would send the army after protesters.
I don't understand the hatred and the division.

I can't understand what it is like to live with injustice , inequality and hatred day
in and out. I can't imagine how scary life really is for them.

I have my words , I can try to help in some small way. If i had money I would
give to the united way or to a church group to help but I don't I just have my words.

Let me be clear that when i say blacklivesmatter I mean Africans , Asians , Puerto
Ricans , Indians anyone non white. We are one race the human race and I love
you all the same . This has really made me so sad . Blacklivesmatter I see you
I want to help . I love you .

Keep looking for Hugs, Happiness and Healthy Living

    I also want to stop the HATE, but that includes ALL hate even that against those in government. We need to bring love and kindness towards ALL. emoticon

    There is so much turmoil in the world today and the anger can
    be misplaced. Innocent people suffer. We saw it in our largest
    city in South Dakota and will see more in the days to come.
    All lives matter. Stay safe and pray for peace.

    Well my oldest daughter lives just outside San Francisco---and two nights ago the protestors (rioters) literally destroyed the quaint little town of Walnut Creek. I visited there before---it was clean and adorable with such darling little shops----it is now demolished; one woman got shot (in the arm) ... and couple nights before two officers were shot and killed. I say PLEASE DO bring in all the forces you can find----why is it ok for them in their rage destroy small businesses and more----those owners of those businesses sweated blood, sweat, and tears for THIS? to have their businesses looted, burned?? .... We have driven around our town---to find businesses barricaded so the rioters could not destroy them----Including when we went to Target Sunday to find it also barricaded so rioters could not smash in doors--windows or burn it!! .......... My daughter also spent several days crying off and on---at the site of their next door town being destroyed----and when her husband went a block away to a Starbucks, suddenly a van of guys got out of a van and circled him............He was able to quickly call his brother---who is a cop......and in seconds they were surrounded by police; funny how they ran like scared rats and drove off!!! SO sick of waking up to this every day and seeing the same old crap! .......... There is NO excuse to destroy the property of others, which ruins their lives---and some never had any insurance to start over----also no guarantees they would not return to destroy more. I cry too----but I do not call it injustice. I hope many go to prison!!!.........the other thing I am disgusted and fed up with is EVERYONE blaming Trump for anything from A to Z----I wonder how the critics would do in his shoes-----24/7 criticism and the critics wants peace and love? ... Pretty hypocritical if you ask me.

    I feel with you Joanne.
    Our country is so troubled - such grief -
    And today we learn that there is a "a peaceful protest" being planed in our very rural small town for Thursday.
    The planning supposedly is being led by 15 and 16 year olds ! My hear breaks and I have pleaded per facebook for their parents o talk to them and keep them home. I am seeing such fearful stuff of outside interests paying and pushing these riots - can this happen in our valley. Praying !!!

    Keep praying and talking peace in the ways that you are able to do.

    The current climate of our country is indeed unsettling I have taken a break from watching or reading the news, My heart is aching too, I'm part Native American and the injustices the government has done to us is appalling. As you said, ALL lives matter. It would be nice to see some peaceful, proactive measures coming out of the White House right now but that isn't happening, God help us all.😢

    Sweetie, you are loved, too, and for sure, THAT is the ingredient that is in short supply right now . . . . love . . . . and kindness.

    I know, my heart is broken, too for all that's going on. We can all be a good example of kindness, respect, love.

    Thank you, Joanne for your heart...please know that you are loved and respected emoticon
