Though retired on medical disability for heart, asthma and epileptic seizures, raising a grandson with legal custody since he was 8 months old, find facing another day difficult, depression is there from the struggles of surviving, I'm still a fighter of causes and believe in what I do. Take a few minutes to read my blogs and you will see what I mean. There you will find links to all US Senators, Congresspeople, The White House and other information to voice your opinion. I have shared more with you as well, however, do realize I speak my mind as we all should do, passion with respect is necessary.
I have traveled to 48 of the 50 states, Europe, Mexico, USVI and BVI and would love to make my home in the Caribbean. The people there are beautiful, loving, caring people who have always made me feel welcomed. Barbados made me an Honorary Citizen I've been there so much! We live in a beautiful world, filled with interesting places and even more beautiful people. The world is filled with kind, loving, compassionate people - in Ireland I was home and recognized for my ancestory, the country is amazing, England - home again. America is my native land, born and raised here and she comes first. My religion and spiritual belief comes first. I'm trying my best to work with others to save this beautiful place - environment, politically, speaking out on issues and yes, signing petitions when appropriate.
Your heart is the beginning of beauty then it travels to the eyes to see all around you. A friend told me, "when we learn we are all one and truly care with no boundaries, then we will be a whole!" There's so much truth in that
Thanks to all who read and share and thank you my friends I have here - you are like family to me!
I respect and do not judge; I'm a member of Robert Kennedy Jr's friends list against Global Warming and support it fully. I call, write. email any member of Congress with regard to issues on "my list." The "pork" in the Federal Budget, actions against women, education, economy, stand for our military, not Mr. Bush and croonies, jobs, social security, healthcare is disgusting for lack of a better word - together we all must work harder! Are you not willing to stand and speak out - be heard, we have the First Amendment! If not, George and pals will change it like they have so much in our governmental system.. Actually take the time to read some of my blogs which provide government websites for contacting DC. For the Love of God and Country - what has happened to us? It's apparent the idiots and pals can get away with anything and will not be impeached!
My background is government, law enforcement and private industry - my Senator's and Congressmen know me on a first name basis. They know I'm striving to right the wrong Washington has done to America and the citizens by bringing it to the front and gaining attention for a cause. They've learned to listen, I will talk to the media when necessary! I was the first administrator for the state program on crime victim's sexual assault - I've seen the pain and damage from the hospital to courtrooms and seen the offender walk out the door a free person! I contact politican's/others in any state or branch of government about topics I have strong feelings on and hear back from some! The Judicial System of this country is in complete chaos and a failure at this time, so many causes and I will challenge them - one extreme I make no exception for is the Family Court System - with all the failures there, I sometimes wonder why we even have one.
If we don't stand up and speak out - who will! Acceptance is a Treasure; appreciation is a Gift returned.
I stand and am counted for what I believe in - do not back down from what I feel is right or wrong with this country - the Constitution [currently] guarantees citizens the right! Does anyone realize we are back to 1950 and an all male Supreme Court - are there no women in the legal field qualified? Did you bombard your Congressional Rep's with messages - I did! Never a doubt I'm of Irish ancestry if you see me! I am an intelligent, independent, compassionate lady, respectful of others. I do not judge, so don't think you are qualified to judge me. If you are, it's open for a great discussion. Love to smile, enjoy times and things around me - including daily reading. I am well traveled; love the islands and Europe; Australia is on my list to visit! Passport in handbag 24/7! A mix of Irish/Scot/English. Family is located near Salisbury/Stonehenge UK and in three counties in Ireland :-) Have family and friends there which makes travel fun! Past EAA member and love the Oshkosh Airshow, music, research, NFL, beach, mountains, "spur-of-the-moment" things. Spontaneous but with caution! Adventure is in my vocabulary. Put me in jeans and t-shirts or in a formal gown - I am comfortable in both and fit in any place. Places liven up a lot when I arrive. Truth, I once had a moment when I was inappropriate - I laughed at a funeral when it was silent - the story is quite funny regardless! I have one gran at home graduating in May. I have a Calico who doesn't know he's a cat! Now I am ready for whatever is due me in life - there are times for everything and it's not immediately. Acceptance is a treasure if done wisely; appreciation is a gift returned.
