I see too many instances of people getting upset, their feelings are hurt, and all they want to do is get an ounce of revenge, either physically or verbally. It only helps them to feel better knowing that the person or thing that hurt them is equally, if not more, hurt or offended.
Wouldn't it be a better world if we took that pain, that anger, that vengefulness, and used it for good? You know that feeling you get when you genuinely help someone, with no expectation of reward or compensat
What if you were left completely alone and no one cared for you? What if the walls around you were you best friends? What if this happened because you pushed so many people away with your actions, your behavior, your words?

I have nothing against the Black Lives Matter movement. Nor do I have anything against Blue Lives Matter. But when I get called out for suggesting that ALL lives matter because it "belittles" these causes, that's when I get upset.

The traditional decorations are going out on the curb, the UHauls are converging on the city, and the Storrowings have begun in earnest. As a bonus for this year, the T is a disaster and occasionally bursts info flames, if it's running at all. Welcome, students!

Well, I survived the ultrasound. It was incredibly uncomfortable and invasive, but I lived. Thank you so much once again to everyone who responded to my initial post. You guys helped me so much so that I even had a normal bp when the nurse checked it!
Guess I forgot to tell y'all I fell and dislocated my ankle last week. Had the ankle put back into place but also have something called a tri-mallealar (sp) fracture. 3 places! Surgery next Thursday for the lovely hardware needed to put it all back together. Did I mention that Oxy is like shooting a bb at a hurricane for pain?
