Here we go again. I have seen comments on blogs of whether or when U.S. troops should assist the Ukraine. Of course it starts with military advisers, and the humanitarian motive.
I will make this short and sweet, explanation should not be necessary. No, hell no. We have no business getting our military involved between the Ukraine and Russia.
End of story.
This is what you could expect from Hillary (God forbid) the President. Censorship of the American people.
When conversation picks up from a blog I initiated, I feel a wonderful sense of accomplishment, especially with comments from followers. Dialogue on issues begin and are hashed out . Disagreements are expected, understanding and respect are built from sharing thoughts and ideas from faces we never see and have never met.
I recently had a blogger friend ask if I knew how she and her husband could go about adopting a young teenage child, possibly an immigrant/ok I’ll say it refugee. Another follower read the blog and responded with contact information of an agency/organization that may be of assistance. Wow….how great is that. Blogging can serve a wonderful purpose, when good people get involved; but you knew that. Even if nothing becomes of it….the fact people are willing to share to help another, is a sign there is still hope for us as a nation. We still care.
Our voices are being heard, sometimes we have to shout to see the evidence of that; but stay patient you are a force.
I believe our tweets and blogs may be the greatest factor of raising awareness. We can not count on the national or even world media to accurately inform us. I am also not so naive to believe everything from a tweet or blog. But usually where there is a lot of smoke, there is a fire. Keep digging to find the truth.
We are beginning to see a bit more news coverage from the major networks on the Southern border immigration issue here in the U.S. I believe action from our government and president is in part due to the public outcry. A lot of that comes from right here on what we write and share with our followers. They also know we vote!
This morning our local St. Louis news gave immigration a stunning 2 minutes, with video. Not a big deal you say? That’s up by about one-and-a-half minutes. Will be interesting to see what the national TV will release. Hopefully I haven’t missed already.
My point is we can make a difference. I know the stance on illegal immigration is mixed even split, but if we remain active our government will, sooner or later respond. It may not go the way you or I want it in the end, but stay vocal…..this is our country. We are the voice of awareness.
