When Years Pass By

Looking back, wondering and thinking, even to consider what might have been, is interesting, but; it is wise not to fret, but to be of thanks for those whom one has loved has found a wonderful life, far and beyond the dreams once held of being with them. When Years Pass on By. 

This is an amazing thing to come into peaceful understanding, as some never find such, due to holding anguish over things which cannot be changed, cannot be re-arranged and cannot be repeated as if to do over.   It means, one has learned of love as being something amazingly wonderful which cannot be contained, only beheld within the heart.

How wonderful it is to have found and held the beauty of the moments shared, while knowing it was of a wonder only God brought into being, to give unto each what God had put within each, to give and share unto and with each other for the time of such a paring. Yet all the while, preparing them even then, for a lifetime with wonderful knowings of loves realism. When Years Pass on By.

Such a wonderful gift and treasure God made possible to be;  of which one can hold fast unto as a learning, a knowing and a gift of love experiences shared. 

It’s almost like the seasons, they come, bringing often more than we know, but what it brings, gives and bestow for us to behold…. last a lifetime. Not unlike the bountiful things brought and given within the seasons, which come, and too, come to pass..leaving a lifetime of Gods gifts a part of what makes us into whom we are.

The Sun is always shining !!!!!   we may not think or know so at times when the clouds are grey, we may not connect that it shines even by way of the reflections of the moon, this too is how love is; once it has entered within what is the make up of us.

How might I speak that you hear, is too, how might you listen that you hear, and how might grace of understanding bless you, that you know.   Love is everlasting!!!!!!

Even, When Years Pass on By…..



Building a Life

We work on it from the moment of our birth, unknown of the labors to be work, we engage to learn, to move our body parts, express our thoughts and on to and through the many things we interact within our passing moments of building a life.

We gain the ability to focus, learn the works it takes to gain clarity, as well as learn within ourselves to have a soul that embraces the compassion’s of charity.  When and as we learn the real meaning of charity, which is “giving with care to extend that care unto others”,  we become one who is building a life which encompasses the continual learning of grace.

It’s not an ease work to endeavor building a life – we have dreams, desires, fantasies and then there is the mix or what is “reality”.   Sometimes we find triumph and sometimes we find further challenges, we learn the meaning of what it is to persevere, and things begin to develop.  Often times, we can see our dreams have come to pass, through the “review”,  we too; find it is never of the perfection we imagined, but it is of the reality which came to be.

All together, if we hold firm to the truths of loves labors and life’s works,  we can then come to appreciate the presence of Gods truths giving us more than we often have taken the time to acknowledge.  Therefore, it is unto us to Keep God First,  that our steps in building a life, is of and for; as well unto the graces of Gods Glory.

Each moment that passes is of what goes into building our life, each moment we look forward unto with positive aims and graceful consideration, is too, our pursuits in building a life.

Understanding these things in their simplest realism helps us know our every moment is precious.  In Building a Life. 

Be ever thankful unto God for such a blessing of opportunity to do so. 

How Much … Do We Understand Love

It is such a powerful composition of “everything”.   Some of us have experienced love in many ways over the course of our living, family love, friends, lovers, artistry love and the endless perspectives of which love is experienced and expressed.

What we may take pleasure, pride and value to know is, “Every experience of Love’s Expanse” enriches us and becomes a part of whom we are and whom we will continue to become.

Discount none of whom you have loved and shared love for the good things it gave into your being, but equally so, the challenging things help us learn temperament, cautions, tolerances and many other things, including so much about ourselves as too, of loves meanings in our lives.  

Often we have to step through the emotional whirlwind when these loves end their term of interaction.  When we trudge through, as time and its passing come; we too, come to understand so much more about ourselves and others. We strengthen our principles and if we can avoid the anguish spectrum and not hold resentment and bitterness, then we can embrace the joys and pleasures of what we have gained through the experiences.

Love is always the teacher and the preacher within our soul, when we hold fast to appreciate and come to re-appreciate its wondrous gifts.

We, many of us had the “young loves”, they have great impact in our lives – We learn so much about ourselves and we come to learn so much about others; and the experiences of and through their impacts and their emotions as well as many things not even of consciences awareness continue to improve us, as the essence of the one(s) we loved reside within us for the term of our living – overall – making us better in being whom we’ve become.

God gives us these experiences at various times in our living, both in long term and short term spans, some may find itself connected and remain connected in active interactive loving for the span of their collective lives.  Treasure each as being “Beautiful”, as love and its experiences is a great gift Gods glory has blessed us to have and experience.


The Power of Learning

In our early years we learn the meanings of “words”, these words are later combined to make subject material.  What a wonderful evolution to have the ability to write down our thoughts, our remembrances, our ideas, our fantasies and record our history, among the many many usages of the written words, and too, spoken words.

Today, so much is lost in the sound bits, the short blast of 140 character communication scripts, and other elements which come along with ‘how” technology is sometimes used.

There are wonderful usages for and of technology, of which has been of great benefit, and some has brought a variety of abusive uses which become detriments. Be of care to interpret words, their contextual meanings and their usage and placement within what is communicated.

Learning to embrace the artistry of words and thus learning to indulge the fantastic function of reading, as well too, listening and most certainly gaining the understanding of perspective to embrace comprehension.  These things of such basics has propelled mankind to do, create and improve many things, while opening the mind to explore the once unaware angles and trajectories of thought and inquiry. We become to be better individuals. 

We can speak or read a words and it can inspire many thoughts in many directions, though when we read with concept of perspective intent, we can follow the flow of what is being communicated, to grasp the aim to understand what is communicated.

Everyday there is so much more to learn, it includes new things, old things and past things and helps us think about future things, as well as it can be a joy “relearning” things we thought we know, by the grasp of seeing it presented in a different perspective with a different angle of trajectory.

Let not an inflamed emotion rob one of what is available to be learned, let not the frozen like mindset deny one the ability to grow and expand in conscience awareness, for learning is always an ongoing process.  It’s like the wonders of refinement, what is refined makes often times what is better than what was unrefined, therefore expanding capability and improving functional application is yours to embrace.

When we – as the adults of the society_ become to value among things we consider top priority, then we are open to learn, thus we too, are motivated to help our offspring’s to embrace the value of learning.

Learn new words, learn to speak and utilize new words, and work on ones voice and diction, that one may speak words clearly.  This will help with the usage of “context”, therefore expanding our understanding, usage and ability to comprehend the usage of words. Thus so, expanding out ability to be and become improved in our effective aims of communication.

Learning is living and within living there is always the opportunity, for experiences in Learning.

Look in the eyes of your children”.. you may be awakened

This is not a laugh a minute, patronizing writing, so if you are looking for a ‘feel good”  happy as a lark reading, this is not it… This is about concerns within what is our society and community of people, and the betterment for the children who make up what will be the future.  If you have no concern for those things, then this is not something you want to spend your time to reflect upon, or explore …

Look in the eyes of your children”.. you may be awakened

If each parent look in the eyes of their children, they may learn many things.

Let’s start with schools,  if you look in the eyes of your children, you may learn why they don’t perform as people did years ago, in academic endeavors.

One their schools have cut out all the programs that help build cultural and developmental pride.
They no longer have a band, they don’t have a choir, they don’t have 4H clubs, Girl Scouts and Boy Scout programs are gone, they don’t put on plays, and have no idea of what a drama class is, they don’t teach civic’s anymore, there is no sports teams at the elementary schools, there are not sports team at 75% of the junior high schools, there is no cheer leading programs, no tennis programs, no golf programs..  All this has been stripped away, all to try and turn them into accountants and bookkeepers, who result to have developed no social concept of self value, they have been robbed of cultural grooming programs, Arts and Crafts does not exist in many schools. and basic Home Economic  is not only void, it forgot to teach about basic financial management.
Instead of a society that is progressing , We’ve regressed so far, and all we can think to do is blame it on the kids.

All these programs taught social values, each of them taught team working, and how to function in a society with other human beings,  they taught the value of community, as well as gave kids something to belong to, of which they could take pride.  When these programs were removed, Gang increased, delinquency increased, and kids created their own networks.  Because of our failure and disregard to sustain and maintain these programs in our educational facilities.

Many educators became so elite minded, they forgot about these rudimentary things, all they could see was to groom corporate spokes, that could ride title for the sake of a dollar and status. but the humanity factor was tossed under the bus.

We cut programs because we say they cost too much, but it cost of 4 times as much for delinquency, and every other social malfunction which results because we have so little regard for positive and interactive social grooming programs.

Even churches across the city, with these elaborate facilities, that remains locked 5-6 days a week, all so the Pastor can claim how big of a building their church houses, but they have not functional social programs, that truly remain an open flow for children to utilize.  Church after church, became no more than ‘Real Estate Gambits”,  of buy and sell, and then move out on the outskirts and build new ones, but no one can fill those which already exist.   We never developed such a concept of ‘associate Ministry, because every pastor wants his own kingdom, rather rather than to think in terms, of Gods Kingdom, which is based on Unity, not denominational divides.  Even people today, talk more about the pastor than about the God the pastor should be directing them to honor.

Young people will gravitate to church, but they are not going to rush to “Fire and Brimstone methodology of teaching”, unfortunately some church are simply not willing to change to attract these young people.   young people want to learn what is good, what is right and what is positive, they don’t want to be beat over the head, but simply taught the lesson of wisdom, to put to functional use in their lives.

In Schools for the past 25 years kids have been telling educators, that the method of teaching is not only dis-interesting, but it become a bore in a world where technology has exposed them to many levels of functional application.  Kids have demonstrated by their quick grasp of technology, how advanced their ability is to learn, and they have show, they excel by interactive learning. Not just sitting with a book and listening to a lecture, that has no time to discuss anything, because of a scoring mandate. Which moves the lesson plan along to satisfy legislators, while it leaves the children behind, in unlearned situations.

Teachers can’t teach because they are mandated to push “rote memorization”, when Americans learn by interactive involvement, they want to know, the who, what when, where and certainly the “why’s”.. But today educations does not deal with it. The only response the Student gets is, being told, “We will get to it later”, but later never comes.

Young kids at many of the inner city schools do not even get free time recreation breaks, they are controlled as if they are in a boot camp and many are not even in the 4th or 5th grade.  they are herded to the cafeteria, and then whisked back to the classroom, and people wonder why they suffer from Attention deficit, and have un manageable energy, which is then exercised as class room disruptions.

No schools in higher income neighborhoods function this way, because the parents won’t allow it, and the students will make sure their parents know their human dignity liberty is stripped away, and they are being processed liked robots.  But this is done in the less financial and poor economic neighborhood schools as a scripted program and process.  The kids are considered to be trouble students, and then eyes of the adults convey that to them, and they respond in kind.

Look into the eyes of the children, and much can be seen.  when kids have programs they can join, such as sports, band, drama, dance, choir, 4h. Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, Science programs, debate teams, swim teams, soccer, tennis, golf, and some of the sports that are only found at high income community schools.  Yet, we wonder why, kids rebel so much, when they are made to feel inferior by the things which has been taken from them.  they are made inferior by the opportunity programs, that is no longer a part of the school system.   Yet, we wonder why they are obese, and have no physical involvement in anything.

We are the Problem, as being the Adults of this society.   We allowed the status of material things, the status of job and title, and the claim that money makes us more than we are as social human beings.  We’ve become so obsessed into these things, we have diminished even the function of family engagement.

We’ve allowed greed of every sort to invade the industry of this nation, to the point, that we ourselves have become indentured servants to a system, that gouge us and strip away product quality and services.  Not because the company can’t make a profit, but because the executive ranks, want to make a kings ransom, or sell away the company and collect a bounty, while stripping and ripping and leaving American citizens unemployed.  We sit idle and watch executive compensations, imply that we are worthless as workers, when the executives pay themselves 100’s of time more than the average work, and then take away the basic benefits of the employees.

Even the simplicity of Lunch breaks are not taken, and people made to work an extra hour, for lunch, and this has cut away time for parents to be home with their children, or to go to their children after school functions, or to see to it their kids get to and from practices or participate in programs at their schools.

The more we swallow these things, in silence, the more poor society becomes in both the household economics, poor in social values, and there is almost no such things as community unity. its simply a group of houses in a common area, where people play status measurement against and upon each other, about who’s got a new car, and what kind of clothes they wear, and how fresh is the paint on their home.

We created this madness, the children did not create it, it is the Adults.  We think today, the only thing that matters, to is buy the kid the latest fashion costume, or gadget, and claim that we are the best parent, because of who’s kid has the most gadgets, and who’s kid is so elite they don’t even have to take out the trash or cut the lawn, or rake the leaves, or even to clean their own room.

Yet, we wonder what happen to society… Well, what happen is the Adults lost concern for the things which build a better citizenry.    some Areas do not even have a movie house, for kids to frequent, but they have enough nail shops and hair salons, or Circle K markets, and they are surrounded by enough Wal marts.    there is no such thing as a small craft shop, or a repair shop of any kind that a kid can get an after school job.  there is no more community business, that contribute to community center little league teams.   But here we are with a state motto as being “Sportsman Paradise’  – we should be purely ashame as to what we have allowed to erode.

We now have a society of obese adults, because status and looking what some call professional, in designer attire, has made people unaware of the need for physical activity.  the delusion is so deep, that people fix their hair, or slap on a wig, and paint their nails and buy a designer label, and forget that their body mass is expanding astronomically.

Unfortunately today, we have women in mass volume who have lost the appreciation of their natural selves, and wigs dominate the landscape, if one is in a situation where a wig is used for a various problems of some sort, that is not much of something to address. but when people simply choose a wig over, taking time to groom their hair, then that tells much of a story.

The kids in turn replicate this process, and we see excessive  obesity among the young people, it is so high, that it is a national security risk to the whole of the nation.

Today, we see parents go to schools, physically looking any kind of way, it never dawns on those parents  who do so craziness, to consider how  they invoke an embarrassing situation upon their kids.   it shows,  that when the parents has not the dignity of mindset to properly groom and prepare themselves to address the school their child attends, then what else do they ignore to consider as it relates to their child and themselves for that matter.
Sadly as a nation of people, we elect politicians, and they go to the State Capital as if they are a Guru, in turn, ignore the voice of the people, and go so far as to pass legislation that impact how to destroy education programs.  They should deal strictly with assuring that funding is provided to the school districts, not try and mandate how educations should be engaged on a district level. Nor telling districts what programs they must cut, and taking money away from cultural and social grooming programs within schools.

Most of the Politicians kids go to private school, yet, they are in the capital dictating public school programs, when they have no respect for it, otherwise if they did their kids would be attending public schools.
Voters need to be mindful of these things when they cast votes, until we rid this menace from the Political process.  You did not send them to the capital to dictate how schools education is conducted, you sent them there to assure that funding is allocated to support schools systems, not to sit and monitor the grades of students and play jockey games with the funding, because they want scores, for their political benefit. at the expense of children, and providing them a full rounded educational experience.

Politicians won’t address banking rip offs and the collusive rips and strip interest rate games banks play, but they want to get involved in how your child is afforded an full service educational experience.

If Politicians, understand what matters, they would have put a cap and freeze on home interest rates, in the namesake of children, schools and community, because when they allow banks to create a climate of foreclosure, it directly takes away from taxes that support schools.  and give that money to greedy bankers, by kicking people out of homes with exaggerated interest rates.

Society must learn how to connect the dots, and they will know quickly, how to fix the problems that face this society.

We can pay billions to fight wars we can’t win, but we can’t spend billions to improve our educational system, yet we wonder why we’ve fallen below 26th in the world as it relates to educations, and we’ve fallen off the charts in industrial stability.

Look in the eyes of your children”.. you may be awakened

They’ve been made to see a hopeless future – by our own folly.

This nation no longer respect the common worker, unless they are given a title of some sort, and this translates to bad situations for the children of today and their vision of being respected in the days of tomorrow.

Public Schools – Make it the Childrens Choice

It has to become the choice of the children to make the Public Schools be the best. Come prepared to learn, be proactive to support the campus programs, groups and organizations.
It too needs the parents to push for returns of historical programs, with improved focus within and upon these programs. Examples: Arts and Crafts Training Programs, Computer Tech, Debate Teams, Band and Other Musical Culture Building Programs.

This is among the most critical periods in their young lives –
The Environment Should Be Like A Magnet, Which Draws Kids To Want To Be There.

Each school is equipped with Auditoriums and many have facilities which can function as Craft and Vocation Training, and Teach “Real Life Economic” of the Working Class Individual. This can be expanded to teach higher level of what is Investment Learning, and how markets works. But first and foremost, teach them how “Real Life Working Class Economic Function”.

We need to begin to teach “Anti Bullying” but first to do so, we have to constructively replace bullying with a sense of Willingness to Be of Assistance. When young people develop their value system of self, and the high point is compassionate understanding, they are less inclined to even consider the concept of bullying.

quoting myself

Start Earlier talking about “Family Dynamics”, the roles, the responsibilities and the duties of what is a family member as it relates to solid principles. Communication, Respect, Consideration, Compassion, the meaning of Social Welfare as it relates to family function and interactions. Teach the responsibility involved in being a youth, what it cost to a family to invest and raise a child.

IF we continue to omit these things, and come with the same old concept of “these are things people should learn at home”; then we continue to promote failure within the scope of these dynamics.

Today, many people come from broken homes and they learn very well how and what is a broken home. As people -we create and re-create what we know and what is within our environment. Many of the parents of these broken homes do not have advanced communication skills, they don’t often have the peace of mind and environment to teach compassion, respect and considerations, as the parent is often caught in the struggle of putting food on the table and keeping a roof over their heads and many parents are struggling with wanting or building a mate relations in their own lives as well. (These are reality truths). We can’t omit to regard and acknowledge these things.

These are truth which exist. We can go backwards a bit to learn how to move forward, because many of these things we have over time omitted to consider, and disregarded to teach, and wrongly assumed these things were taught only in the home; what we have found these are the same things which contribute to the decaying society, because they are NOT always taught in the home.

When Schools focus on Teaching Ethics to the young and give young people some basic understanding of how Philisophy works to function in society. They provide the child with something they can build upon over the years as they progress in their schooling as well as within their general living process. Let’s stop assuming everyone gets this at home, because we know its not true. If we know its not true, then let’s change, and build it within our schools educational programming and function.

If we grasp the True Value Points of This, We contribute to building a better society over-all.

Affluentsociety does not have the same dynamics of such challenges in the ways many poor and working poor families and their children face, nor does the kids who attend private schools who are a part of families who are unbroken and not challenged by economics. They have a different mentality about their lives and their environment.

If we don’t recognize these discernment factors, then we miss the mark in what we need to address.
These are all young people, we need to broaden their horizons about the culture, the realism of life and the variable factors that impact communities. These will be the young people who will inherit the current day communities. If we teach them well, they too grow and understand how to build better community.

There is a serious break down in communication, there is also the disparity in how public school system function relative to individual schools. The field is not level, nor are the provisions matched. This is a big undertaking, due to the decades these differences have been allowed to become unsync’d and out of alignment.

We too have to engage in utilizing the various means of teaching, with understanding of how people learn. Then we can work on things like “common core”, but at some point that has to be some commonest in the core of how people learn. We don’t know enough to do it right yet. If we did there would not be the challenges to common core and there would be a smoother method to transition students to learn with some commonest to the core of what and how they learn.
( I certainly don’t have the answer) But there is an answer. As a thought, I’d say do it progressively, by this as the student progresses from one grade to the next, add in some factors. But to change the whole programming at once, seems to have met many challenges.

Reading and Reading Comprehension is a very big matter. A matter of which more time may well be focused in how to understand written text. Then, phase two, is how to understand verbal nuances.
This may be a big help in the current generations, who are very temperamental, and get inflamed quickly by the various nuisances within conversation. This too, is to include teaching a broader context of “Spelling”, so that kids learn the various usages of words.

It has to become the choice of the children to make the Public Schools be the best.

When we look at the broader spectrum of America, it is and will remain being the Public Schools that will provide the bulk of education to the broader population.

It’s time to focus on Making Public SchoolsTo “Be The Best”.

Get back to teaching the old way, which includes classroom interactivity within the learning process.

Remember, As American people, the Who, What, When, Where and How are very important, the kids will always inquire about the “WHY as well as “WHY NOT”. (allow time within the lesson planning to engage the students).

Let’s not belittle or mislabel them because they are being as Americans are. “Inquisitive”, “Thinking Outside the Box”, and “looking for reason and meaning”, to go into what they are ingesting.

Value of “YOUR” Vote

If nothing else in this nation is important, people should grasp the importance of the vote.

We have things done and people placed in position who make decisions which impact our daily lives, and still people are unaware of these dramatics which have been devastation’s of many sorts and still people are blind and unaware to the point they still do not vote.

IF people had any idea of what we could change, what we could impact and how we could turn American Around and become and make it to be a winning nation for All American people. They would learn the value of the Vote and how to choose whom they cast their votes for. It should be for the principles and goals of the candidate, not the image and commercial madness.

Low voter turn out, thankfully still performed to install a Democratic Governor who is for all the people.
But we have a long ways to go, because if we don’t clean up and clean out the state congress, we are going to find gridlocks that further devastate us.

People should pay attention to any and all upcoming state and local politics.

We have to become responsible and put people in office who have the new day reality politicians mentality of inclusiveness in these important offices, This means choosing those who do not aspire to the old historical bias, bigotry, racism, class-ism and other elements that divided and devastated us as a people, a system and society.

Think in terms of Your Vote’s True Value
