Okay so tonight/today is going to be two posts. I think this will happen like this because I like to talk a lot and I am behind on so many topics!!
Okay so while I should be asleep I am up watching “She-Ra” on Hulu… at the end of this particular episode there is a PSA about bullying. This episode was from 1985. In the my mind I was like wow they had this same problem 20 years ago that we have today! But then I remember something my father always reminds me about. Everything that once was will come again.
So bullying was a huge thing once upon a time… calmed down for a while and now it is back to the forefront once again. Things are even worse this time around (In my opinion). So did we learn anything the first time around? No not really or else the problem wouldn’t be so bad. You wouldn’t have kids as young as 8 attempting suicide or actually doing it.
We have never actually learned anything from the past (and when I say we I mean America as a whole). Do you know the last time we refused refugees access to our country they were sent back to their own country and killed? WWII, we denied the Jewish into this country and they were sent back and killed by the Nazis…. pretty messed up right?
We are a country made up of immigrants, and refugees. Unless you are a full blooded Native American then you trace your roots back to somewhere else and not the United States.
So with that in mind isn’t it important to look at the things from our past and use them to make a better future? If you took a left down a street yesterday and there were nails in the road, wouldn’t you take a right instead of going down that same road today? I’m all about protecting ourselves and doing what is right for our country but what is right? We don’t want to put the people already here at risk but who says that if we let refugees in that they will be trouble? There is no way to prove that, but what can be proven is if we don’t then we have sentenced these people to a certain death.
Get more interested in the world around you. Stay on top of current events. These matters will and can affect you somewhere down the road.
I lived in Germany when the Berlin wall came down. There was also a lot anti-American talk going on which had gotten so bad that we had military police escorts to school. I know what it’s like to live in fear that someone will try and kill you just because there is a different between you and them. My parents although the told us to always have a watchful I but, we never stopped living. We still enjoyed living in a different country. We didn’t let fear stop us. So we can’t let fear stop us from helping others in need. Wouldn’t we want them to do the same for us? The United States is suppose to be a super power, so let us show the world what a super power is. I do agree with the Republicans when they say we should lead from the front and not the back.
Isn’t that way everyone wants to come to the United States anyway? We do have it going on!
Peace and Love,
