Patriotism


Patriotism is defined as the quality of being patriotic, vigorous support of one’s country.

Patriotism has become a popular topic recently or at least in the American culture, it is. A lot of the older generations are used to people standing with one arm across the chest and having head wear off during the Pledge of Allegiance and/or National Anthem. 

But in recent times, people have been sitting out, kneeling, burning the national flag, making unpatriotic remarks, and so on and so forth. 

But, some questions remains..

  1. What makes someone against/for something in their country?
  2. What might make someone not like/like the country they are currently in?
  3. What is the backstory behind all these patriotic/unpatriotic things?
  4. What constitutes as patriotic/unpatriotic in one’s country?

Thoughts of Las Vegas Massacre 2017


US History

May all those who lost their lives may rest in peace
May the proper actions take place afterwards

~10PM, Sunday, October 1st, 2017, Route 91 Harvest Festival, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

SourcesABCNews,CNN, Washington Post,

What seemed like the typical festival going on in the Las Vegas strip and everyone having a good time and enjoying a concert until one moment: non-stop bullets was shooting into the Route 91 Harvest Site from the 29th Floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel from the corning block. During this festival, there were hundreds of attendees. There are at least 59 people killed and 527 injured, currently confirmed and could possibly rise.

The suspect is a 64-year-old, white, Mequite, Nevada resident Stephen Paddock who stayed at the Mandalay Bay Hotel during the time of the event that had brought the numerous (23) firearms (pistols, handguns, and rifles) and an ingredient used in explosives (room and car) mostly found in his room. At this point in time, the motive is unclear. They also found 3 cameras, 2 in the hallways outside his room, and 1 looking through the door. After this happening, he had taken his own life. It is believed that he acted alone.

According to CNN, Paddocks brain was autopsied and there was “no abnormalities.”

Las Vegas Shooting Gofundme

Thoughts

I think this a saddening and horrific moment in American history and will ever remain to be a part of the dark histories that will always be remembered. We will not forget this event like past similar events. I know in American culture, people like their weaponry and right to bear arms but will this or future events like this change the way things will change in the distant future? Will it change to where other countries are doing?

I wonder the backstory and why this person decide to do this act? Did something go wrong or did he have some sort of mental breakdown?

Questions

  1. How could this ever happen?
  2. How could this guy get so many weaponry into a hotel?
  3. What kind of security or security policies does this hotel have?
  4. What is the motives?
  5. What is the shooters background?
  6. Was this an act of terrorism?
    1. Terrorism is defined as any act that can cause terror amongst a group of people in an certain area.
  7. Was there more than one shooter?
  8. Will this affect the way we have the right to bear arms?
  9. Will the right to bear arms change or be more restrictive?
  10. How will history or culture change for the better?

A Look into the Unknown


There are many things in this world that cannot be explained or yet explored. Yet, the sciences and math probabilities are able to explain some of the things going on but not all. Could it explain what is in the deepest depths of the ocean, what about the strange space, earth, and human anomalies, why we can't explain cold cases or missing person cases that are never reopened, what happens when something or someone goes through a black hole in space (hypothetically speaking), and etc? There's so many questions left to be answered.

It's an exploration race of knowledge beyond our capabilities which we are slowly learning more about and who knows what point of time it will take us to get there. It seems like there are a lot of dark subjects that haven't been shown the light of day and dedication to be worked into so we know the Earth and Space more and what we are capable of. It seems like there maybe a lot of curious minded people who are wondering about what the future holds and the mysteries and tales of the past, present and future.

What will the future hold? Will we discover what lies in the parts unknown and the tales of our own planet?

Love all, nothing less


Some of you remember one of the blogs posted not too long ago explaining why we're only human and all lives matter. This is similar and if listened to we can all live in a better society. We can all live to dream that this will come true. So, beyond this paragraph you can decide if you want to read further.

When looking at multiple news outlets, there are those standing up for equality for rights and fair treatment. There are still a lot of maltreatments and corruption going on out there in the world. But, how far is enough or too much? Well, that's a million dollar question, we may never actually know.

We should spread care, love and kindness to all. We should not hate, corrupt, and evil from the world. We're all human, there's no sub-humans. Yes, we're all different colors, have different religions, culture, sexual orientations, political ideas, and etc but that doesn't make us (humans) any less than one another. History happened so we would not hope to be repeated in future history.

Would there ever be a time when there is going to be a time of peace and no violence?

I ask you for simple thing.
Will you love the people around you? Will you help stop the stigmas and violence going on in the world? Can you help the world become equal for all those who reside in the world?

Remember to love one another and be kind to your neighbor.

NO means NO


     When you tell someone no it should mean no. You can tell anybody no or turn down any situation. No should mean no not yes. Yes should mean yes not no. Why can't people comprehend that?

 

     It does not mean that the person has that some sort of unspoken permission in doing something that is not needed or against the other person's will.

 

     For example, if a man is trying to get lucky and is not taking no for answer. So, he picks a random girl that may be willing to give some time to give to the desperate guy but she decides things are not exactly normal about this guy and a lot of red flags are up and waving around. She tells him no numerous times and he isn't taking no for an answer. She leaves the location and he follows her and decides that she "deserves it" and rapes her. He says she "deserves it" because of her outfit. She didn't "deserve it" because she clearly told him no and her outfit was not skimpy and was covering the majority of her skin, she wasn't acting desperate as he was, and was not being flirty or that interested in the people hitting on her. Was she a victim in this case? Yes, she was, she never asked for this to happen for her. The guy got away after he was finished with his task.


This is probably a bad example but was trying to make a point

 

     This also can go along with so many other situations as well. If a person doesn't feel comfortable with a situation or being around a person or group of people. It is OK to say NO. Just follow your intuition and instinct or that gut feeling. You are the one who is in control of your own life. Things will fall into place and you will find your true self and figure out who your true friends are.

 

Remember to love one another and treat others the way you want to be treated.

 

Remember if you don't feel comfortable with a person or situation. Do what feels right and say no or leave.

Unnecessary Censorships vs Culture Norms & Media


Seems like in every culture there are ways that we are influenced like censorships or censoring.

In each culture, we are brought up in a certain way and uniquely different. For example, some are brought up in a fast-paced environment, religious stand point, minimalistic, independently, group efforts, and etc.

For example, nudity. Nudity is an al naturale part of life and we deal with it on an everyday part of life. But when it comes to the tv or some media news outlets, the intimate areas of the body maybe blurred out depending on where you are at in the world. But, why be censored out when it’s an al naturale part of the human race? So, would it be an unnecessary censorship across all cultures?

Another example is foul language. Foul language maybe a part of the everyday talk for some. But why censor all foul language especially when it comes to media? Is it really that offensive? Maybe for some I suppose….

The last example I have would be the subject of the deceased. For example if the deceased have died in some horrific instance and the media would most likely not show the pictures/videos, and/or blacken or fuzz out the worst parts of the photo or video. But death is a natural thing. But, things maybe to upsetting to see, the loved ones of the deceased may not want the information leaked and want the person to be remembered in a better manner, and/or the “culture norms” of that country. Yea, not all deaths are horrific but some can be more on the peaceful side.

So, what else would you include in the unnecessary censorship?

Not Just One Life Matters But All Lives Matter

                             From Dailymail.co.uk @AngélicaDass                       http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3074282/Angelica-Dass-attempts-photograph-shade-human-skin-world-hopes-creating-discussion-platform-identity.html

We are all human, living all on one planet, and living together to hopefully make the world a better place or at least we try to.

 

 Throughout history, there are rough and ugly patches that were recorded and will be  remembered for future references. But, we seem to question why these events happened. There maybe significant clues to why some events happened or started while others may never be known and some were just a part of one’s culture. Some examples of some rough and ugly patches of history would be segregation/separation, slavery, maltreatment practices, unsafe working conditions, concentration camps, stigmatization, and so much more.

 

In recent years, people are wanting to spread awareness that black/white/lgbtq+/religion/…….. (list goes on and on) lives matter in peaceful to unpeaceful manner (depending on circumstances on that point in time and person).

 

But, it’s not just about one specific life matters. We get that you and others have concerns about where you belong and want to share it with the world and hopefully to make a change or spark of something. It may spark others to join in.

 

Is it a part of a revolution or fad? How far are you willing to go? Has it started to become too extreme, is it just started to stir the pot, or still on the low end of the spectrum? 

 

What about all lives matter? We all matter in this world. We all want a fair world with equality. No hate just love, no worries be happy, and we do what we can.

 

Aside from the negatives throughout history, there are positives. We have figured out what to fix or not to do in future history. We have revolutionized the medical field so we could save more lives and to have a longer lifespan, create technology that doesn’t use nonrenewable resources, start of buckling down on security measures so citizens could live in a safe society, working on trade routes and other countries relations, and the list continues.

 

We as humans, we just want the best for us. But, how far are you willing to go to change the mindset of those who are wanting to stuck with traditional ways? Although traditions can be a good thing, it shows what we were brought up on. But times are changing and the human population is growing. We have to accommodate everyone of Earths citizens. We shall not leave one struggle and be left behind.

 

There is a topic of stigmas. Yea, there stigmas attached to every single topic. Stigmas can hold us back. Stigmas could affect people in being able get employment, education, travel, help of any kind, food and water, and etc. So stop stigmatizing all together, it is not helping anyone.

 

If we are not willing to help our neighbors, why bother in what we’re trying to do. There are a lot of corruption. Corruption are those who may be those of the greedy and toxic people. Those people think mostly of themselves. We don’t need them to fight for us and to think they actually “know” what is good for us.

 

We need those who are willing to help us that are pure and actually wanting to help to be there for citizens. We should be there for our fellow neighbors. We shall leave no one behind or struggle. ALLLIVESMATTER, not just one. We ARE ALL THE SAME. We all may have different skin tones and genders. and/or be a part of different religions/other groups/labels but we are the same; HUMAN. Being a part of these different things does NOT separate us, make us a sub-human of each other or other classification. We are all the same level of species, no need of arguing about it. We should be proud we are human. We should live in pride and celebrate how far we have accomplished so far and live to our full happiness and no worries.

 

Remember to BE KIND and LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

 

I’m Only Human by Rag’n’bone Man (2017)

 

[Intro]
I’m only human
I’m only, I’m only
I’m only human, human
[Verse 1]
Maybe I’m foolish, maybe I’m blind
Thinking I can see through this and see what’s behind
Got no way to prove it, so maybe I’m lying
[Refrain]
But I’m only human after all
I’m only human after all
Don’t put your blame on me
Don’t put your blame on me
[Verse 2]
Take a look in the mirror and what do you see?
Do you see it clearer, or are you deceived
In what you believe?
[Refrain]
‘Cause I’m only human after all
You’re only human after all
Don’t put the blame on me
Don’t put your blame on me
[Chorus]
Some people got the real problems
Some people out of luck
Some people think I can solve them
Lord heavens above
I’m only human after all
I’m only human after all
Don’t put the blame on me
Don’t put the blame on me
[Verse 3]
Don’t ask my opinion, don’t ask me to lie
Then beg for forgiveness for making you cry
Making you cry
[Refrain]
‘Cause I’m only human after all
I’m only human after all
Don’t put your blame on me
Don’t put the blame on me
[Chorus]
Some people got the real problems
Some people out of luck
Some people think I can solve them
Lord heavens above
I’m only human after all
I’m only human after all
Don’t put the blame on me
Don’t put the blame on me
I’m only human; I make mistakes
I’m only human, that’s all it takes
To put the blame on me
Don’t put the blame on me
[Bridge]
I’m no prophet or Messiah
You should go looking somewhere higher
[Chorus]
I’m only human after all
I’m only human after all
Don’t put the blame on me
Don’t put the blame on me
I’m only human, I do what I can
I’m just a man, I do what I can
Don’t put the blame on me
Don’t put your blame on me
