A story came out of the States recently, and I’d like to take a few moments and talk about it.
First of all, Rest in Peace Jamel Dunn.
Second of all, if you have not heard, there were 5 teenagers who were hanging out by a pond, when they saw 31 year old Jamel Dunn walking up to the fenced off pond. They watched as this 31 year old disabled man, walk right into the pond. And then they decided to start videotaping. They were seen mocking and laughing at Jamel as he was seen drowning. Then, they heard a scream from the background, laugh and say “he just died”
Jamel was pleading for help, all the while these guys were laughing and having a great ole time.
I can’t even begin with this. I read an article today about how the teenagers didn’t have a “legal duty” to help this man. And what is astounding to me is that, that is even a point of contention. If they had no intention on helping the man, they should have just left. How heartless do you have to be to watch someone die and laugh and joke about it at the same time? I hope the Judge presiding over the case makes an example out of these teenagers. They chose to act like adults and should be send to adult jail. Where in my opinion, they should just stay.
So we currently have a shared yard. I’m not a huge fan but we got what we got.
So one of my neighbours has decided that our yard is a perfect yard for their dog to be tied up in.
And I’m not ok with that. They don’t even watch the dog, so it goes to the bathroom where ever it wants to. And because they don’t pay attention the dog craps, where my daughter plays.
How are people so inconsiderate. It’s a shared yard!! Where kids play!?!?
I wish people thought about these things.
Even though school is out, I still need to keep up my regular routine.
Sundays end up being house cleaning day mainly because garbage/recycling are due out tomorrow morning.
It’s also nicer to wake up to, nice clean house. We spend a lot of time here, I don’t see why it can’t be clean too.
How did everyone else spend their Sundays?
I will start off by saying, I am all for people starting over, or having to leave their home country due to horrible issues. I’m sorry if I offend anyone.
Recently, I saw an article about how a politician in Poland had said something along the lines of “We didn’t invite refugees, we have a right to say no”.
Now before you lose it, I’ll explain that perspective. There are many things going on in each individual country. Poverty, homelessness, addiction, uneven income/cost of living, war, famine, you name it.
The idea is to first focus on the problems that are currently going on in the “home” country, and then open arms to refugees. We as a society, can’t handle people upon people because there are so many issues that are currently happening. It’s super unfortunate, I know.
But why do we want people coming here, just to experience bullshit situations? Why do we want people coming here and then not being able to survive? We can’t help other people if we ourselves are unhealthy and toxic.
And I think if most of these issues were solved or on the decline, we would be more better equipped to welcome refugees in, so they can experience the good things of your culture.
Literally, I just want to restate the title, holy crap guys, the fricking morning I had…. was full with anxiety, and feelings of scared, worried,irritation the works.
I’m a lot better now, but my anxiety made my morning so much worse than it had to be. My chest hurt, I was nauseous right from 7 this morning to like 1130. I had to attend a legal thing that I had never been part of before. So I was terrified because I had no idea what to do, what to say, where to go.
Terrified that the other party would tear me to shreads, which thankfully he didn’t. He turned about to be a nice and understanding guy.
It did work out in the end, and I am satisfied with the outcome. I am stronger from that, but this anxiety is really intense.
The debate has cross my mind often. And for a while I wanted to stay in the city because everything is here. I loved most of my life here so of course I’m going to want to stay.
But recently I’ve taken some trips to some small towns, and I’m reminded why I like them more.
You see, I’m super compassionate and kind. And living in a city will not allow that. The more people,the more amentities, the more “busy” everything gets. There’s a certain hustle and bustle of a city.
But in small towns everything is slower, people are nicer, and more patient. That’s where I belong, where everything is calmer and relaxed. City’s are cool and all but in order for me to live a full life I gotta get out of this city.
