A sad day indeed

Warren and I ended up going to the Dem-NPL party at the Ramada last night. It was great to mingle a bit and see a few faces I didn't expect. I had some fun with my friends, and some great free food. We ended up not staying long, as Warren was tired and with school the next day, keeping him out late was not a good idea. If I didn't have to work the next day, I would have liked to stay. It would have been nice to have somebody to cry with.

I consider myself a good loyal American, but sometimes I look at my country and just wonder what the hell is wrong with people. This is what my Uncle I never met died for, this is what my Cousin is in the Air Force to protect:the right to force one groups religion on everybody, the right to treat a group of human beings like second class citizens, the right to reserve good health care for only those who have the money to pay for it, the right to send our jobs overseas, and then take away the welfare benifits of those who suddenly find themselves unemployed because their employer can get somebody in a third world country to do the same job for a tenth of the salary and he doesn't have to pay benifits, the right to die in a foreign land, leaving your family with out you, for a cause that most of the world does not support, and which will only make things worse not better, the right to thumb our nose at the rest of the plaent because we are Americans and we are better than everyone else?, the right for my son to someday in 7 years be forced in to military service no matter if he wants to or not, and possibly die in some foreign land, and don't think it couldn't possibly last that long, this is what thousands have struggled and died for? So we can have our rights taken away, and our website choices and books scrutinized? So innocent hard working citizen can be viewed as threats when they have done nothing? So our freedoms can be taken away under the guise of it being for our own protection? This is what we rebeled against Great Britian for?

I still have faith that eventually Americans will wake up and see the light, but I fear many will die and suffer before it is so, too many lives wasted, too many people forced to hide in the closet, not allowed the same basic human rights because of one groups fear and ignorance hidden behind religoius rhetoric.

I want to have faith, and I will again, but right now it is very hard..

In every neighborhood there is at least one house that all the neighbors gossip about. This is a diary from the woman who lives in that house. I am a single mother in her mid thirties. I live in North Dakota with my son, Warren.

I tend to be a bit of a slob, and am the opposite of a girly-girl. I am geek girl, who loves Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Buffy, Angel, action movies, science fiction, action adventure, Dr. Who, and so on and so on.

I love to write and while I don't post much fiction online anymore I would love to be a writer someday. I am also overweight, bipolar and suffer from allergy induced asthma.
