Women, Abortion, Rape and the Republican Platform
The Republican Platform 2012:
Last week, the Republican party added language to
platform calling for a constitutional amendment,
banning abortion with NO mention of making
exceptions for victims of rape or incest, or to save the
life of the mother.
RAPE & INCEST:
A violent act of abuse both physically and emotionally
that alters a woman's life permanently.
THE FACE OF RAPE & INCEST:
It leaves an indelible mark on a woman's life
STOP OPPRESSING WOMEN!
I don't believe the Government has the right to tell
women what they should do to their bodies!
We don't tell men what to do with theirs.
My message to the Republican party:
STAY OUT OF MY UTERUS!
Where's My Freedom Dear Republican's??

Rest In Peace
Suicide: A permanent solution to a temporary problem...
This goes to show that the human mind can trick you into believing that your world is
empty and worthless. The power is in silencing the chatter in our heads and focus on
the love that lives deep inside of us all ~

Davy Jones - The Passing of an Era
Hey, hey we’re the Monkey’s
Boy do I remember those silly boys
flailing around on the beach and making me laugh as a young girl. My heart
would pitter-patter each time Davy Jones sang a song staring at me through our television
consul. I was convinced he was singing to me and me alone. When he made an
appearance on The Brady Bunch I was swooning along with Marcia Brady as he
spoke with his adorable accent, full lips and those dreamy eyes. I was in love. What little girl didn’t have a crush on
Davy? He was cute, funny, sexy, had the voice of an angel and most importantly,
he was sweet and kind. Okay, so I have a secret to share; during my heartthrob
crush on Davy I had a poster of him on my wall and every night before I lay
myself down to a slumber I would drag my desk chair over to the wall, stand up
on it and kiss my Davy goodnight. Then I would soundly fall into my sloom and
dream about his songs, smile, hair and twinkly eyes that would stare right
through our television and straight into my heart. That was an era when falling
in love was easy and didn’t require you to loose your self confidence, pride or
give yourself up in hopes to secure a relationship that inevitably would never
work out. Back then love was truly a fairytale
and life was innocent and free of any responsibility and heartache, and the
childhood baggage that arrives later in life was simply building dust balls underneath
my bed. It was a time when I didn’t much care for how my hair looked or the
fact that I wore cat framed glasses and my boyish figure was just that…boyish. All
that was insignificant back then. Polar opposite of how I feel today; worried
about my hair, the wrinkles on my face, my shape and size, on and on my head
spins. Yet, when I was little all I could focus on was the joy that was brought
into my life by the sounds of the Monkeys music. An era that has sadly long
passed. How did it become so complicated?
Jones has stirred up so many fond memories not just of my first crush, but of the
wonderment that filled me everyday as a child. Those dreams vanished as I grew
into adulthood and were replaced with cold facts of the many responsibilities
that I have come to bear as a grownup. The innocence has been replaced with
worry over finances, broken hearts, fear of just not making it in life and
finally the realization that my innocence had been forever lost. Where did the love
sick little girl go? The innocent one who found joy in the poster hanging on
her wall and watching with her eyes peeled to the television just to catch a
glimpse of her true love. As the announcement came that my childhood sweetheart
passed away at the young age of 66 I was transformed back in time and for a few
hours I was able to recapture my innocence and laughter at the thought of Davy
and his silly antics, bright smile and movie star hair. After all these years
he was still able to make my heart sing with joy, innocence and remind me of
the beautiful feelings an honest crush can offer. His death made me realize
this is what I should be feeling in
my love life as a grown up 49 year old woman; maintaining my innocence and
allowing the wonderment to develop in my heart and life. Oh Davy, after all the years we’ve shared together
you are still able to bring out the best in me. How I will miss you. And in
your honor, I will not allow myself to fall short in my future love life. I
thank you for your willingness to selflessly give to me the sparkle of hope you
still offer even in your death. I will miss you my sweet love and I thank you
for the romance you gave me by reminding me that I need more of it even at my
You also prompted
me to remember that life is moving closer to the finish line and therefore I
have no time to waste in any area of my life. In honor of you Davy, I promise
to fall deeply and passionately in love with a man who will reflect the same
back to me. I promise to keep discovering the innocence that still lives inside
of me thanks to your constant reminder. You will live on in all our hearts along
with your charm, silly nature, sweet temperament and magnificent talent. This
young girl will never forget you. Good-bye my sweet love….

Training update ~
This week I ran everyday again. On Saturday I
cycled with my Team In Training buddies over 35 miles! I climbed a hill that I
thought was intimidating, but I kicked it's butt, I tipped over on my bike
because I couldn't unclip one of my shoes, (my ass is going to be black and
blue) I then wiped my humiliation off and with great valor I gracefully pooped
out at least four times climbing to the top of Jack London State park in
made it to the top.

What a difference a day makes ~
What a difference a day makes…
In one day Rosa Parks changed the way the world looked at human rights by ‘sitting’ for what she believed in…
In one day Jeanette Ranking of Montana was the first woman elected to the House of Representatives and she cast her vote against the declaration of war in 1917…
In one day Susan B. Anthony and Cady Stanton became friends. Their friendship turned the women’s movement into the most powerful organization which paved the way for women to have the right to vote…
What will you do today?
