Breaking the Cycle

Children aren’t born

with prejudice and hate,

but when raised with it

they tend to emulate.

Then prejudice once more

gets passed on down.

Until tolerance and education

start turning it around.

The Sea within (click on picture for song), enjoy!

In my dreams

I’m drawn to the Sea

Crashing waves

mist in the breeze

The taste of  salt

as it dries on my skin

Hair in my face

tossed by the wind

In times of sorrow

it beckons me

Cause the Sea is the place

  where my soul feels free

Firing our Heroes…Speak out USA!

our service men and women 2

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has just unveiled a plan to shrink the US Army to its smallest size since before we entered WWII..  You have to wonder, does Mr. Hagel realize we still have troops fighting in the Middle East?  Perhaps government should consider bringing them home before they start cutting their jobs and livelihood.  Our service men and women sacrifice everything for our country, but because government spending is out of whack, this is one of the 1st places they start cutting.  Perhaps it’s time to readdress the financial benefits and perks of those running the government, and how about Government contracts, now there is an riduculous area of wasted fund that should be brought out to the public.  Look, there are so many other areas of wasteful spending to cut from before cutting the jobs and security of our counties heroes and protectors.  You can read Secretary Hagel’s proposal at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-26326969   Our Troops 2
