I started this blog because of my depression of the recent election in the USA. Not because the person I voted for lost because at 66, 1/2 of the people in my life have lost as president, but of the darkness of the person that won and how Americans would join the hate bigotry and fear. Now those things have become normalized.
A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.”
— Benjamin Franklin
What has depressed me most is the ignorance of good people of Christian faith. Friends and family that believe false news stories and conspriracy stuff. Belive global warming is false, ignorant of our history, and let fear override common sense. They ignore what scientist say and common people around the world can see, how all countries know that man has contributed to global warming. History can show us today what ignorance and fear and hatred of other religion, race has caused.

Good people can not sit quietly and not condemn the hate fear and ignorance. If you sit quietly you are just as quilty!
I will close to day with beauty of everyday people and our planet.
