I did this 🙂 and it didnt even hurt one bit!!!

I truly believe the best weapon we have in any battle is the least used…The Brain.

“it is easy to control the ignorant for they do not investigate the validity of that which they follow”…amy somday

To the man who calls me friend but only speaks to me about the “woes of the health care reform crap” because I work at a hospital and should understand it and be able to defend it:

Before you verbally attack over things that have been spoonfed to you by whatever media you are listening to… I challenge you to use your college educated brain, the one you wave like a banner of pride and remind me i do not have, and go to healthcare.gov and open the pdf and start reading the act. Mind you, it may take awhile since it is 2409 pages long.

When you are done please feel free to come back at me and tell me that this was a “magic wand” waved by the President in order to detract the people from “viewing the real facts of this nation”.
It is a sad time our nation has reached when “we the people” think we are too busy to fully investigate what we are fighting for or against, when we buy in to what every one else tells us is true because we believe we have “like minds and values.”

Joy, Pain and Wanting more than you are allowed to have…

I had the absolute pleasure of spending time with my best friend. The laughter, the conversations, the goofiness along with the seriousness was wonderful!

When I think of my time with him i think of lifting a handful of sand, bringing it to my face and looking at the beautiful crystal clear grains reflecting anything they are around mixed in with clouded or black grains that seem to have more substance. As I hold the beauty in my palm the grains slip between my fingers, a slight wind will blow it away; sunlight will fade to black, reflecting nothing.

You can no more enjoy time with someone if you beg it to stand still than you can the beauty of sand taken from the element it was made to inhabit.

My time with him is always too brief, always jam packed with things to do and places to go together, memories to make. But yesterday we took time to do something we had yet to do together…we stopped, we sat together, we listened to the waves roll in. We stopped before the Lord, enjoying His creation, the two of us, best friends holding hands.

I have always had a few tears while he was here, sensing distress over his leaving, for i do so adore and relish him in my life. However, I had a meltdown in his arms last night, and even though it seemed like I was angry that he had to leave, it was not anger but my stupid heart fearing abandonment. I know how he feels, i do not doubt that at all, his hand slipping into mine as we walk through the mall, his opening each door i walk though, his wanting need to make me happy, all of that shows me how he feels. What i fear is that it will be another 10 months without the most tender and gentle person i have encountered in my entire life.

As i sobbed he held me so tight until i quieted, then as i began to breathe again he ran his fingers through my hair to soothe me the floodgates opened….again.

Why do i have to be so stupidly emotional?

Dear God…. this is hard, y’know?? Yeah I know You do but sometimes i have to ask.

Freedom of speech doesn’t mean what you say is acceptable

Freedom of speech does not give you the inalienable right to name call. Name calling is a form of bullying. Shame on you Ann Coulter. I don’t give a rip of your station in life, how much time you have spent in front of the camera or how much money you make, you are without a doubt among the people who seem to have recently lost their mind when they either put their fingers on the keyboard or opened their mouth in front of others.
I don’t know about the rest of y’all, but my Mama taught me respect, love, dignity and acceptance.
Thank God for my Mama, and also for giving me a conscience!

Thank you John Franklin Stephens for speaking up and defending who you are. Much Much Love

The following is a guest post in the form of an open letter from Special Olympics athlete and global messenger John Franklin Stephens to Ann Coulter after this tweet during last night’s Presidential debate.

Dear Ann Coulter,

Come on Ms. Coulter, you aren’t dumb and you aren’t shallow.  So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult?

I’m a 30 year old man with Down syndrome who has struggled with the public’s perception that an intellectual disability means that I am dumb and shallow.  I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly than the rest of you.  In fact it has taken me all day to figure out how to respond to your use of the R-word last night.

I thought first of asking whether you meant to describe the President as someone who was bullied as a child…
