Tonight I finally watched the famous documentary "BULLY". It was fantastic in all the wrong ways. It made me so emotional. A lot of it was filmed here where my parents live in Sioux City IA. My goodness did it make me cry. It makes me want to be back in schools just to protect the kids who get bullied. I was so angry at the principle from East Middle. I dont know how she can even be in charge of a school. And for school officials to look passed the reality of what's happening in todays schools sickens me. Kids are not just being kids, there are somethings that adults need to intervene in and to use the excuse boys will be boys makes me want to punch them in the face. Kids should feel safe at school not terrified. I can't even been to express how angry I am. How can children be so cruel. Makes me want to homeschool. Not that I trust the public school system anyways, the way people are these days. That's another subject all together (just to make it clear I had both private and public school experiences so I know both worlds). The child from here, his name is Alex; asked his mother "if they are not my friends (the ppl who were bullying him) than who is?" Just that simple question broke my heart. To see someone so desperate for a friend that they are overlooking the harshness of others just to say they are friends. I truly believe that if one person will reach out to these kids, one child their age, we could prevent many suicides. People tend to forget that words hurt so much more than physical abuse. How can we overlook something so serious just because there are not marks or anything physical going on. I don't know about you but throughout my life the things that have stuck with me were not the bruises and the scrapes but the words that were said to hurt me. I really wish people would wake up and spend more time with their kids. Teach them how to treat people. Schools need to address the problem and stop ignoring it. Not by taking things away but by punishing those who think its ok to bully. They will learn it's not tolerated and maybe just maybe there will be a change.
I found an amazing website called MAKE BEATS NOT BEAT DOWNS.
I urge people to support them. Buy their shirts and let people know where you stand.

Oh Me Oh My

Life, its been quite the journey. As much as I've wanted to get back at this again, I have also been avoiding it. There has just been so much that has happened from my time in North Carolina until now. This is somewhat of a recap I suppose. I left NC with a lot of unwanted baggage. I say this in the most metaphorical way possible.
As most of you all know. I was married to a marine and we lived out in Camp Lejeune. It was a pretty awesome stay as far as the friends and opportunities I had.  Unfortunately it was short lived due to my ex-husband not being a very nice person and to some of the PTSD he suffered from that went untreated. Basically the relationship was toxic and abusive. So much so that I lost a lot of who I was in always being on the defensive and sticking up for myself. I'm not saying that is was all his fault. Just as in any relationship, both parties are responsible for nurturing or poisoning. So here I am almost 5 years later living my life and loving it.

Love this! written by Tanya Amidei

Public Declaration; I NO longer believe in falling/being in love: As I was walking to work this morning I was convicted and reproved for ignorantly believing that I could "fall in love". Love is NOT something you fall into; this pulsing truth wouldn't silence. Now, you can imagine how I felt as the conviction in my heart arose; slightly defensive because certainly I've been defining love properly, right? So, I decided that it was my responsibility to pierce into the Word of my Father, and search to see if this concept of "falling in love" or "being in love" is something that I should indeed attach my life to. Now, it was to my surprise that this concept of emotional intoxication that motivates the lips to part and the tongue to say "I'm in love" is NOWHERE to be found! In fact, as I dug into research I found that this concept; the one I've been guilty of co-signing my name to, is nothing more than lust. Lust is built on what the …
