Getting deep for just a moment


So I don't often use this blog to take a stand or give my opinion on what is happening in our world.  I choose to keep this (for the most part) a friendly look into out lives as a family.  I don't often talk about my faith or beliefs because I feel that if you truly know me then you truly know what I believe.  But here is what I would like you to know, that I do believe people want change, and I hope that they do get the change that they are looking for.  I do believe I need to support our current president whether I voted for him or not, whether I agree with him or not.  I must support him because he now stands for me.  I would like there to be no mistake, that I have ALWAYS been proud to be an American yesterday, the day before, today and always.  This is the land I am bound to.  It is the country that gave my Great Grandparents from Italy a chance, it is the country that gave the other half of my family from Ireland a chance.  It is the country where I am allowed to tell you right here how I feel, and to believe in the God that I believe in without judgement or to be told that I am wrong.  I am so proud of my friend who flies fighter helicopters in Iraq and I am so proud of my friend's son who died in Afghanistan fighting for and the country he believes in and adores.  I am proud of my Dad and Grandfather who served in the military.  I can't imagine how hard it is for any serviceman to think that just now people are saying they are proud.  I realize that much of this won't sit well with you my family and friends, but I have listened to you quietly and without judgement and I just ask that you do the same for me.

Coming from someone who is always putting random thoughts on her blog,I like it when you get deep! I also know it's hard to say stuff that is important to you then have people leave comments! So good job I'm proud of you and good thought provoking words!

I really appreciate and respect you honestly sharing your thoughts about a subject that can be difficult to talk about.
No complaints here.

I got your back Sun! Super psyched on the President's new policy on transparency in the White House. Super proud of our Vets...from your family and mine. Super lucky to have friends like you and Worth!

We all benefit from your words, you are a very peaceful person and that is a refreshing thing, because when you feel passionate about something you will be heard and people listen because they respect you.
I am proud to be an American too.
What little cuties.
I'm glad Will can be around your wisdom.
