“Peace has to be created, in order to be maintained. It will never be achieved by passivity and quietism.”

 

12 years ago today our country was attacked.  I do not know a single American who cannot tell you where they were or what they were doing when it happened.  Many lives were lost that day, and many more in the war on an ideal that was to come of it.  We will never forget, and all those lost will always be in our hearts.

Please read that first paragraph a few times to grasp what I am about to say – Be wounded, be angry, mourn our loved ones, feel the appropriate level of discomfort by the boundaries that they breached… and move forward.  I am not saying forget.  No.  When history is forgotten it is doomed to repeat itself.  Remember, but step onward.

So much hate is spewed out today, every year.  There’s always hate, and inevitably, its best friend ignorance.

I understand the rage and the want to defend our home.  The problem is, so many people fail to understand something:  A race did not attack us.  It wasn’t a culture, or a religion attacking us.  It was a terrorist group.  Be angry at them, hate them, but do not scream your intolerance at a race or religion as a whole.

There are so many Muslims here in America just wanting to live a peaceful life.  Far too often, these people are met with hate or intolerance.

Those who are the hateful and intolerant will tell you that they are not racist, they’re just cautious.  Unfortunately, that’s just completely untrue, and that is, indeed, blatant racism.

We as a country will never be able to fully move forward when these people are around preaching their hate.  They spew it out every year on this day (and some all year round).  You’ll hear about it on the news, or they’ll tell you themselves over social media.  They’ll protest their mosques, their faith, their culture, anything.

I know this isn’t a new ideal, and that I am not the only one who feels this way.  I know most of you reading this blog feel precisely the same way I do.  With that, please help.

There are so many people today preaching hate.  Help me preach love.  Nothing will ever change when those with good in their hearts sit idly by.

Help the world understand that a turban doesn’t equal a terrorist, and as always, remember those that we lost.

Enraged (Mature)

Disclaimer: Filled with rage.  Easily offended?  Don’t bloody read.

For the second time, the Republicans of Colorado have passed a motion to go to the Senate to ban abortion in Colorado, included in cases of rape and incest.

<rant> How fucking dare you tell me what I can or cannot do with my body?  How dare you bring your religion (of which you obviously don’t remotely understand) in to my life, in to my politics!  You give those rapists a permanent grasp over those girls!? You stand outside with your fucking picket signs against women getting birth control?  You refuse to educate your poor children?   I assure you, when you stand before your maker he will not only mock you, but send your worthless, bigot ass down to the deepest circle of hell where you can play with those rapists who you’re giving continual control over those girls!  </end rant>

Now for facts.  Why?  Because learning is fun!  Agree with me?  Find the list of the people who voted in favor of this blatant raping of our rights and fucking beat them in the face with a book.

Fact 1.) This entire belief that a fertilized egg is a person, while not new, has spent the majority of its time in history being rather unpopular .  It was around for a while between the 2nd and 4th century, then St. Augustine came forward and brought the concept that a human soul cannot live in an unformed body.  Then several (and by several I mean 12) centuries later, some Monk, and Pope Pius the IX decided that was inaccurate.  Despite that many cultures had some form of abortion or other available to their people.  The exception to that was Rome, which while a great empire, had other great ideas like pinning humans against large animals for sport.  It can’t survive without being in the womb?  It’s a parasite.  A parasite that has the potential to grow in to something wonderful, but still not a person with a soul yet.  A parasite.  The end.

Fact 2.) “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. ”  I pray to the gods that this requires no explanation.  If it does, please stop reading my blog and go read a book.

Fact 3.)  I am child of parents that did not want me.  While I am thankful to be alive now, I was not the first 18 years of my life.  That is an extremely personal thing to share, but I needed a good enough reason for people not to come out with the “YOU DON’T KNOW!!”  I do know.  I spent the first 18 years of my life being abused physically, mentally, and sexually.  Why?  Because Mommy didn’t want me and Step Daddy thought his new daughter had a nice rack.  I wish that on no one.  And in the argument of pleased to be alive, in MY RELIGION and to Christians with half a bloody brain, we believe that if a soul is meant to be on this earth it will.  If the gods (including the Christian one) believe that a soul is meant to be here, then it will.

I am free.  It is my body, my right.  You take your nonsense and shove it up your ass.

There are many additional facts going against this, but honestly, it took a lot of restraint not making this entire thing one giant rage post.   For other fun facts please see http://www.huffingtonpost.com/soraya-chemaly/womens-reproductive-rights_b_1345214.html
