Vote.

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.

Tumblr

I hope everyone's holidays went well!  I've kind of all-out abandoned my livejournal for tumblr.  To be honest, so many bad things happened to me this past year that I don't have anything I really feel like talking about.  Tumblr, on the other hand, lets me share my happy, warm and snuggly interests with others.  So please feel free to join me at:

Censorship of the Internet in the US!!!!

On 11/16, Congress holds hearings on the first American Internet censorship system.


This bill can pass. If it does the Internet and free speech will never be the same.


Join all of us on the 16th to stop this bill.



Website Blocking

The government can order service providers to block websites for infringing links posted by any users.


Risk of Jail for Ordinary Users

It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a
copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if
you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on
Facebook.


Chaos for the Internet

Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new
legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn't
be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.



Please Visit  http://americancensorship.org/  to find out more and how you can help stop this from happening.

Please copy and reblog!

Somewhere over the Rainbow

I know my Mom is in a better place.  I can feel it.  But I still miss her so, so much.  I wish I could be with her but I know I can't. 




Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow.
Why then, oh why can't I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can't I?


I love you, Mommy.

I miss you, Mommy.

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.

Butterfly Wings

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.

Dad

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.
