I have a blog post due.
These pages at Roses of Prose have taken on a political bent of late. Which is fine. How wonderful to live in a country where political dissent is the norm.
All well and good, if used wisely. If not, well, let me explain…
Yesterday I figuratively lost my favorite cousin and a cherished niece. Both are teachers, one still working, one retired. Another well-loved family member happens to be an administrator in a district where contract negotiations are going on, have been going on for quite some time. Believe me, it isn’t pretty. There are accusations and counter accusations flying around, many are half truths at best, quite a few others are down right lies. Most of it, unfortunately, playing out on FaceBook. The hurt feelings and despair are heartbreaking.
So, my fellow Roses, continue to champion your causes, protest as you will. Just remember there are others who might not totally agree with you or have the same agenda. Others who have their own ideas, desires and feelings too.
As my husband and I were contemplating the future, he suggested this. With open minds and willing hearts, just imagine what we can all accomplish.
My days to blog here are the 11th and 23rd. For more about me and my stories, please visit my website.
