Starting Again.

I’m changing the focus of my blog. I will continue my writing, but I want to start using this platform to express my views on things happening in the world today. I know we have people expressing their opinions on our country every day, but I believe we all need to start making our voices known. Our country needs a change.
We can only make our country better by an open dialogue about the problems we face. We need to understand and respect all segments of our society if our country is going to come together again. This past Sunday, our minister asked what impact are we having on civilization. The question settled a debate I was having with myself about making this change.
Several weeks ago I read a post on the Facebook page of an acquaintance that saddened me. I fell back on my usual way of expressing myself, writing. I wrote a page about what that post made me feel. Of course, I felt better after getting my thoughts out, but I wanted to do more than just feel better. I wanted to do something with what I’d written. I wanted to know if anyone else agreed with my opinion; I wanted to see if it could help people with different leanings understand the ones that agreed with me.
I don’t want to argue with anyone, belittle anyone, or say anyone else is wrong. I want everyone to speak out. We have all been silent too long.
