#MondayMood: For Oscar Alberto Martínez Ramírez and His Daughter, Valeria

To be civilized does not mean having studied at university, or having read many books, or possessing great wisdom: we all know that certain individuals with these characteristics were capable of committing acts of absolutely perfect barbarity. To be civilized means to be capable of fully recognizing the humanity of others, even though they have different faces and customs to ours; to know how to put oneself in their place and look at ourselves as if from outside. No one is definitively barbarian or civilized and each one of us is responsible for our actions. But we, who today receive this great honour, have the responsibility to take a step forward towards a little more civilization. Tzvetan Todorov

Politics: Just Got My Hard Copy of #TheMuellerReport

I just got my hard copy of #TheMuellerReport.

Mueller’s report describes a President who goes
out of his way to prevent law enforcement from
investigating an enemy attack on the people of the
United States.

One can literally open the book to any page and find
a crime.

A page from #TheMullerReport that describes Donald Trump's attempts to obstruct the investigation into Russia's attack on the United States
A page opened at random in the hard copy of #TheMuellerReport

Don’t let Trump’s GOP gaslight you.

Read the #TheMullerReport and draw your own conclusions.

Buy the hard copy on Amazon.

Download the #MuellerReport from me or the Department of Justice

Or listen to #TheMuellerReport on YouTube.

Thank you to everyone who has sent an email
of support.

It’s nice to know you care.

Comments are closed on this post because I’m still on
a semi-break, things are still difficult, but they’re
improving.

I’m using the downtime time to continue repairs on my
blog.

#Stonewall50: The Heart of the Question

“We are confronted primarily with a moral issue. It is as old as the scriptures and is as clear as the American Constitution. The heart of the question is whether all Americans are to be afforded equal rights and equal opportunities.”

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 1963 from quora.com
