Children are in touch with nature. Responsibility can avert our attention from nature, as adults.

Kids…words/my personal opinions

younger generations
are
ANXIOUS
edgy
STRESSED
and all the other words
they are told/taught to use
in order to define
THEMSELVES
and their feelings
if our kids
who are now adults
used those words
when they were young
people wouldn’t
know what they were
talking about
there weren’t any words
to describe what they were feeling
so they just kept going
the world is a
STRESSFUL
place
but what lies ahead
for future generations
if everyone is too
ANXIOUS
to
DO ANYTHING
so far
no one seems to be able
to pass gun control
or stop any kind of violence
BLM seems stalled
women are going backward
and have been deemed
PROPERTY OF THE STATE
the environment is a nightmare
our government
is a violent
and dangerous
JOKE
and no one seems
to be able to do anything
about that either
feeling
FRUSTRATED
ENRAGED
PISSED OFF
THREATENED
and
ANXIOUS
are normal
feelings
that are
being blown out of
proportion
making them seem
as if they shouldn’t
exist
or as if they are
ABNORMAL
when they are in fact
they are absolutely
NORMAL
those feelings
are our brains way of
telling us something is
WRONG
so instead of complaining
about how they feel
people
might want to take action
or come up with some
new idea
on how to bring about change
and never forget
that greedy people are
interested in making money
by turning normal feelings
into abnormal feelings
so they can sell books
medication
and services
I remember when doctors
tried turning menopause
into a
DISEASE
women were all over them
I also remember
a very SHORT LIVED
push
with ads telling people
to drug their children
so they wouldn’t be
ANXIOUS
on their first day in
KINDERGARDEN
that did not
sit well with anyone
so suddenly
it was no longer a problem
and we never heard about
the DRUGS again
living in the real world
is HOW we all learn to
LIVE IN THE REAL WORLD
and the truth is
a lot of our problems
are given to us
by those in power
not only to make money
but to increase the amount
of control
they have over us
anxious and depressed people
are unlikely to fight back
they can be easily controlled
I don’t think we should
encourage
the use of the word
ANXIOUS
since four year-olds
are now saying it
the world is a mess
but it’s where we live
so we need kids
that will be able to
deal with what’s happen
deal with the incredible
nightmare
WE
have made
and are leaving
TO THEM
we need strong young people
those who won’t be
easily overtaken
by those who want to
rule over them
we need fighters
warriors
not weak people
yes things suck
but so what
we need our kids to be
valiant
strong
and brilliant
we need everyone
to be
BRAVE*
in the face
of what’s
happening
or all is lost

*This is not about bullying, or mass shootings.  It’s about everyday life, and the small things that a lot of kids no longer seem to be able to handle.  They are constantly tended, watched over and given words to use by adults.  I think this is a dangerous thing to do.  Putting words into their mouths, defining THEIR feelings for them, is making some kids weak and depressed.  It’s making them afraid.  It’s making them “anxious.”  If adults have to put words into the mouths of children, they should use powerful words, words of strength and kindness, of overcoming problems and difficulties.  Then perhaps kids will no longer be anxious, they’ll be able to change the world.

Teachers of young children are complaining that helicopter parents are making their lives miserable.  Children take no responsibility for their actions and parents are alway making demands that are unreasonable.  It’s difficult to teach any longer, at least according to what some teachers are saying.

A lot of kids don’t have a life of their own.  Their parents have taken over.  It’s very sad and I’m not sure when, if ever, those kids will be able to think for themselves.

Dead babies starving to death…brought to you by the republicans…

The PBS news…(with a bit added from other PBS or BBC AMERICA newscasts)

I watched the news tonight.  Saw the 11 year old girl tell how she covered herself with the blood of her dead friend, who was laying on the floor next to her.  Her friend, who had been murdered by the shooter in her school.  She did it, because she thought the shooter would come back and murder her.  Heard her say that the shooter looked at her teacher and said, “Goodnight,” then shot her in the head.  Her teacher was next to her as well.

Saw the distraught parents of dead children, begging politicians to ban assault rifles and magazines.  Saw them begging, that there be restrictions on guns.  Saw their pleas, fall on deaf ears.  The politicians listened because they had to be there.  It won’t change anything.

The republicans will not allow anything to change.  One of them said that respectable gun owners shouldn’t be punished for what someone else did.  Dead kids, or should I say slaughtered kids, don’t count, or mean anything to them.  Why don’t people understand that?  Why do people believe, even for a second, that anything will be done THIS TIME?

The bills the democrats propose will be shot down in the Senate.  We already know that.  Watered down and useless things will be all that comes of this, AGAIN.  They won’t even vote to raise the age one can buy a gun from 18 to 21.

One person interviewed, said they need to show the bodies of the dead kids in order to SHOCK the public into DEMANDING that something be done.

Another person said they should see the body of the headless nine year old boy, his body blown to bits, and maybe THEN, people would realize what those weapons do to the bodies of children.  Maybe THEN people would DEMAND that the republicans DO SOMETHING, AND STOP PROTECTING THE GUN LOBBIES. (Some of the parents had to have DNA tests to find out which child was theirs.)

I seriously doubt that the republicans, even if they walked over the bodies of all the children in all the mass murders, would vote differently.  Money, greed, power, their jobs, and their loyalty to their party, seem to be all that matters to the them.  One remark to support ANYTHING but their own greedy agenda, and that republican will be out of work.

America is failing its children in every way possible.
