I was angry at Obama. I thought he hadn't done enough to get the health care my mom needed when she had a cancer relapse. If she had health care when she was laid off, they may have caught it early enough and she might still be here.
Then I found out that Obama's own mother died of cancer too. Too early. I realized that he must have done everything he could to get health care to those who need it. When I checked the facts, republicans had been in the way at every step.
On Friday, I voted for Obama a second time. If I can, you can too.
The right wing is extreme to the point of insanity, and voting for them (or staying home and not voting) would lead our country back into the past. The future is in each and every individual voting American's hands.
Please vote, and please vote for Obama.
My Mom passed away on June 12th. She went peacefully, on the day of our Lord, and on the day of Pentecost, taken straight to Heaven. I know she's in a better place, full of beauty and love, and all her suffering is over...but I miss her so much. I'm devastated and feel so alone in the world.
Like a butterfly emerges
And unfolds its graceful wings,
A child grows and develops
With the love a mother brings.
I'm thankful for the times
When you encouraged me to try,
For God gave me my wings,
But, Mom, you taught me how to fly.
I love you, Mommy.
My Mom's getting worse. I don't know how much time she has left.
I need a hug.
Osama bin Laden's dead. Don't call it justice. It's revenge...sweet, sweet revenge.
A couple weeks ago, my father passed away. He had a heart attack and they couldn't save him. My Mom's doctor told me a few days afterward that the average survival time for people with cancer like hers is around 2 years. Sounds a lot like I'm making it up, doesn't it? It's too horrible for all of this to really be happening, right? I truly wish so.
Goodbye Daddy. I love you.
