With all the crap that's been going on here in the U.S. and around the world- politically... I'm taking a break from worrying about it.
It's not as if I plan to disregard what appears to be happening on a regular basis, in the way of change. I'll still be vigilant and continue working at being better prepared for the worse, yet hoping at the same time for better.
Fear is an easy thing for me to overcome, but anger is a bit more challenging; especially over events brought upon us by some of the worse, malevolent scumbags in existence.
I've always had a protective nature about me, which grew from out of life's observations and experiences. Many of you can probably relate.
Having been born into an early life of poverty and raised on the streets of New York City, fighting to protect oneself or to protect another from harm seemed to come naturally for me.
In my mind... it was a duty... an obligation to protect my loved ones- especially.
I was the third oldest of seven children in the household, of which I was the only boy, until the age of fourteen when my mother had her last child. Then, I not only had six woman to look out for, but a baby brother too...😎
Back in the 1950's and early 60's, fathers usually told their sons that we had a responsibility to protect the women of the house; and we did. That may sound chauvinistic by today's standards, but I don't really care about political correctness.
Anyway... I know I'm probably just rambling at this point, but that's sometimes a good way to vent. It's better than ranting; or is that the same thing?
I guess it all depends upon how one looks at it.
As I was saying... HAVE NO FEAR, my friends. Stay strong in whatever way you need, for whatever may come down the pike. Your family depends upon you to be there for them in times of need.
Here's wishing you all peace, happiness and prosperity.
