I see you

Hi. I see you. 👀 You. Walking down the street, looking like you have it all. Coifed hair. Nice shoes. Perfect makeup. Good job. Good relationship. Nice car. Pretty house. 2.5 kids, dog, picket fence. Glazed over eyes, just going through the motions. Numb. Numbing yourself with Facebook, instagram, candy crush. I see you. YouContinue reading “I see you”

Stop with your tantrums

I am still trying to process what happened in Parkland, FL this week. I cannot comprehend how a man would even get the thought of taking a weapon and gunning down a school.
