Learning to swim

12 11 2016

My father taught me to swim.  He tossed me into the deep end of my Aunt’s pool and walked away.  I was fine.  Getting out of that pool was frightening and exhausting, but once I had done it, the knowledge that I could never left me.  I have never been afraid of water and love swimming and feel that everyone should know how wonderful it is to move through the water and enjoy it as I do.

My father taught my brother to swim.  He tossed my brother in and walked away.  My brother wasn’t boyant like me … He didn’t float to the top like I did.  He sunk to the bottom like a rock.

After a few horrible moments of silence my father looked back to see him drowning instead and jumped in to fish him out.  He yelled at him for not trying to swim and tossed him in again.  I remember him tossing us in a lot.  He had the expectation that we would learn to swim and we did.    It took my brother longer to find his love of water but we both found it.





I am sick over the fact that our political system has encouraged such hate!

YOU DO REALIZE that the before Election crap is all a SHOW right??? The whole process has been to sling as much mud as possible. It’s OK to make the other party out to be the devil and spread as many lies as you please because the only thing that is really important is WHO WINS! These people were friends and respected each other till the day they ran against each other. Hillary said “We need more people like Donald Trump running for office, they can’t be bought!

She is probably mad as hell right now, and she should be. She worked her ass off to get to the place she is in Politics so that she would be fit to be President, and he does nothing but step forward and say … Hey I want to do that, and took the election!

It’s like you spending 8 years in College and 25 years of experience in a company to work your way to the TOP only to see the job given to some big wigs nephew who never even worked the mailroom before now. “THEY” have gone back to respecting each other and behaving like decent human beings. Now that they have pumped your adrenaline up to maximum level, I am sure they point at how UNCIVILIZED and IGNORANT YOU are!

You were USED! You are angry and have a right to be but stop and look at who and why you should be angry and what the next logical move should be instead of rioting like a lawless Mob in the streets.

YOU HAVE BEEN PLAYED BY THE POLITICAL SYSTEM WE HAVE…CHANGE IT! Hit back by getting involved in the party’s you believe mostly align with your belief systems and start demanding them be run in ways that honor the kind of Country we could be proud of belonging to. I am not so proud of the one we have now.
