My Two Cents on Newtown

First of all, I pray and mourn for the souls of those children that have been heinously taken in the acts that have taken place in this tragedy.  I can not imagine the things in the coming weeks, months and years that these people will go through and I’ll always have them in my thoughts.  

Okay, so everyone here will have an opinion and a thought, but this is mine and you are more than legally right to your own.  I’m a life-time NRA member and have been legally purchasing and firing firearms ever since I was legally able to do so.  The problem here is not gun control, it’s not the matter of taking guns out of the hands of the people that could and will do things like this.  This is just like drugs, if someone wants to do them or wants to kill they will certainly find a way to do so.  Chicago put in place a ban on hand gun crimes and in the years since that ban hand gun crimes have gone up by 40%.  This is proof that if someone wants it, they can get it.  Put someone; veterans, trained officials, off-duty officers, into the schools and have them legally allowed to carry and protect.  This will solve many political issues and stances on the problem of jobs as well.  This doesn’t need to be turned into something political or something about one group or another.  No, this needs to be a matter of being an American, one group of people united by a single bond.  Being and American has always meant something special to me and should to all of us in whatever way it may feel.  This doesn’t mean taking guns from law-abiding citizens or eliminating a certain kind of weapon because it won’t work.  Work on the protection of our citizens and work towards the ideal of a united America again.  

I’ll go back to laughing at jokes and being a less than serious individual, but this is my belief and feeling.  I’ll always and forever remember the tragedy in Newtown, CT.  May God bless you and your family this Christmas season.

Recent Rambles

I know it’s been awhile since my last post but my life has been a whirlwind these last little whiles.  I hope this finds you well and that you enjoy my rambling.  This is what goes on in my head.

I have experienced many things in my life and feeling truly connected to another is one of them.  I don’t mean this in such a way that I unconditionally loved someone or that my life was truly attached to one thing, but it was to one person for some time nonetheless.  I have experienced heart break and heart felt love from many people in my years and none truly greater than that of with my Father, the Lord.  Now, I’m not “the perfect Christian,” but none of us are nor will we ever be.  My time spent in prayer and in the scripture has made me come to realize many things.  One of the lessons I’ve learned is that unconditional love can only truly be experienced between God and I, or He and you.  Yes, you may love someone unconditionally and you may be happy for the entirety of your life with them, but no true love is greater than that between the Lord and I, or He and you.  I don’t mean to force religion on anyone and I greatly appreciate any or no religious views that you may have, but this love that I feel in His presence is something so joyous I can’t truly express it into words.  That being said, I have realized that I can’t be with someone that I don’t feel such a close connection to.  I want to feel so filled with someones love that, no matter what I do, it will always be there.  I make mistakes, we all do, but someone that truly loves another will look at you, shake their head, wrap you in their arms and be joyed at the fact the two of you are together.  I know in my heart that I will truly find this someday, that I’ll truly find the one person that makes my life so complete that a no matter where we are we will be content in each other.  It all leads back to a story I read of a man who sits at his wife’s grave, everyday mind you, and has a glass of tea.  He is so connected to this soul that even after her physical body has left he rejoices in her soul every day.  There would be no greater connection to another person than this.  Now, I may have already found this person or I may meet them today, who knows.  The only thing I really know is that when I leave this world with that special person in my heart, whether she has gone yet or not, I will always hold that love and special place in my old soul for the rest of the world to smile and rejoice in. 

I hope y’all have a blessed and happy Sunday. Thanks for listenin.
