I haven’t written much on this blog for quite a while. Actually, it been over six months since my last post. It is so easy for me, and probably many others to have high and lofty expectations that I would hammer out a blog post bi-weekly or weekly at the very least, but it seems like in every ambitious pursuit I have in life, it slowly wanes over time and peters out.
I would love to say that I have been spending my time wisely, but this would be a lie. Like most others, for the past few months, I have been gripped with mortal fear. Fear of the great plague that has engulfed the world. In the beginning, I was so affected by the news and general hysteria that I could barely get out of bed. My head felt like it weighed fifty pounds, my limbs felt as if there were sandbags tied to them. the mind foggy, and the body tired. I just wanted to sleep through this nightmare.
In the past, nations that have found themselves in peril have routinely found some solace in the strong minded leadership that governs them. What we have currently governing us are parasites of no moral or ethical forbearance whatsoever. Corrupt, narcissistic, greedy, sociopathic and inept cowards with no redeemable qualities.
As a child, I grew up under the direct supervision and control of a narcissist. This reminds me of how I felt as a child. The lack of boundaries, loss of security. Not knowing how the parent will behave from one moment to the next. This is how the potus operates, and he wouldn’t have it any other way. To have to deal with not one but two disasters is too much to bare.
As for the chaos caused by the movement, black lives matter, I don’t see it as a detriment to our country. Actually, it might be the best thing that has happened to this country since the pandemic arrived. People don’t realize change has arrived until it smacks them straight upside the head. America has slowly become more of a mixed bag, racially. By 2045 caucasians will be the minority. Also, people of all colors, including whites who are not part of the 1%, have many common needs, wants, aspirations. These include safe neighborhoods, clean drinking water, better pay, universal healthcare. The pandemic and the BLM movement has for the most part brought people of all races, together. It has strengthened the bond of neighbors and communities. The pandemic has had this affect on communities and social groups all over the nation, too.
I think, in the end, after all this blows over. When there is a vaccine readily available, and when the social strife recedes into the history books, we will look at this period of time in America, as a time of vast social change and rebirth of what being an American really means. This is what is needed right now in American, to right the wrongs, and expel the fat cats from Washington. VIVA REVOLUTION!
I have been feeling a need to write more lately. I’m not sure what I will be writing about next, but I think expressing myself through writing can only be healthy in these anxious, strange times.
