We should not have a border wall. The “migrants” who come to the United States from our southern border should be ushered in with open arms, and be given money, food, heath care, housing, jobs and more money. It doesn’t matter where they come from or their past. We should do this because they are… Continue reading Thanksgiving
Equity of outcome should never be the ultimate goal. Paige (our 4.5 year old) is learning about working to save up to buy things she wants. She asks how she can earn some more coins for her piggy bank. I tell her she can go pick up the sticks in the yard to earn more… Continue reading Equity and equality are not equal
What can I say that hasn’t already been said? There really aren’t any good words that can express how I feel every year when September 11th rolls around. I wanted to write something anyway. I was 24 years old, and working as a travel surgical technologist on September 11th, 2001. I would take 3 month… Continue reading 20 years later
The war of language continues. I wrote a somewhat ranty blog discussing the many problems I see with coercing one to take an experimental drug. In this blog, I quoted the definition of the word vaccine, as written by the CDC. I wrote this on August 14th, and pulled the definition with a link to… Continue reading Lowering standards and changing the rules

Here is a tiny sampling on one narrow topic of why I, an educated person with a bachelor’s degree in nursing, and over 20 years in healthcare, don’t buy into the rhetoric. Me:… Continue reading Is this about antibodies or compliance?
I have become more vocal, it is true. Some people have gone away because they were in my life for a season, or even the wrong reasons. By not hiding who I am or what I think, I have watched some amazing and genuine people come into my circle. I am learning so many things.… Continue reading Standing for what is right – for our children
There are so many heated discussions lately about public schools. I have hesitated on sharing my thoughts on the matter because I am the type of person who wants to avoid hurting anyone’s feelings. I know many people who work for schools. That attitude does not fix things for my children though, and I can’t… Continue reading Public Schools are BROKEN.
I was thinking about the word “wisdom” a few days ago and decided to look up some scriptures that discuss the topic. Lately, it seems wisdom is something that is absent from much of society. My search took me to Ecclesiastes, chapter 8. I wanted to go through a few verses that stood out to… Continue reading Wisdom is better than folly
I see people casually saying that they are ready for civil war. That they even want it. They want someone to just say the word, and it will be, “Go time!” I have not made the sacrifice to serve in a war. I am not a veteran, but I have spoken to them. I am… Continue reading Are we already at war?
It has been a year since I first heard stories about the new virus coming to get us all. The panic spread quickly, people gripped by fear. Fear, I now know, is a powerful tool. It is easy to scare people, but very difficult to unscare them. No good news The few voices that came… Continue reading Waiting for answers about Covid and the new vaccines. Keep it voluntary.
