Having children tends to change everything. However, I have never been one of those "soccer moms." When my son was younger, my boss tried to get me to sign up for "Bring Your Child to Work Day." I respectfully declined and tried to understand why they wanted to punish me. Once again, refer back to the chart.
My son likes to dress in black and he wears that hoodie 365 days a year. It smells like an old fajita wrapped around an old foot. We live in Louisiana. It is so hot here, I heard a fire hydrant whistling for a dog one day last week. I'm not sure, but I also think that I saw the sun looking for some shade. It's not even summer yet.
He attends two different Bible studies a week and makes excellent grades.
Something recently happened, though, that completely threw me for a loop.
Also, last month, Lucy Lawless was arrested for protesting against oil drilling in the Arctic. Her charge was upgraded to burglary even though nothing was stolen.
Lucy stands up for what she believes in. She is a hero to me.
Yes, there is one thing...
But, whatever you do, don't throw flour on Kim Kardashian or try to save the Arctic. You will be quickly arrested on the spot.
TO MY READERS: Years ago I got into an argument with a man who was beating his dog at a local gas station. Within 24 hours he shot and killed his wife. He shot her five times, until the gun had nothing left to give. There is always a better solution and I regret stepping forward with angry words. I was trying to save the dog, but the bigger picture was something else. Looking back, I was a catapult in the situation. The wheels were set into motion. People need kindness, not anger. I saved the dog, but a human being died. I have to live with myself and trust me that is not a good feeling. Am I a bad person? No, I was trying to be a hero. I was just trying the wrong way.
Just to let you know, I don't have a problem with the 911 call. The second he placed his foot on the ground with a gun in his hand is the problem. That set the wheels in motion. If you want to be a hero, but you need a gun in your hand to be one, it's not a good idea. If you have to scream at someone you don't know and chase them, it's also not a good idea.
There is a saying that "kindness kills." Trust me, it doesn't.
