WHAT CAN SAVE OUR WORLD?
The age old dictum of sages is battling
With what shapes our fate and destiny
The primeval forces are intensely baffling
For they defy any clear definition of unity.
Is inheritance fundamental to our fate,
And do chance or accident determine it?
Good and evil are beyond time and date
What can give ballast to Man and his wit?
These riddling questions are indefinite
They hang precariously rich in awe
With tantalizing sensitivity that can ignite
A seductive rapture with a hideous caw.
Do memories in the genes play a role in the context?
Is forgetfulness becoming a deadly disease?
Are there other excuses, or issues more complex
That will bring disorder, disunity and more dis-ease?
Man conveniently forgets he is loved or who has been kind
He selfom cares nor remember the sacrifice of the other
How can he be transformed in body, soul, spirit and mind?
What then can save the world and bind one to another?
Begin with a little appreciation, always smile and be grateful
Count your blessings and your friends, despite all your misgivings
For it is in our nature to remember those who have been thankful
My Friend, what can save the world is wholesome THANKSGIVING.

Resmen kapıda kaldım. Arkamdan kilitlenmiş. Bakıştık -ne kadar bilmiyorum-kapıyla , desenleriyle hava yağmurlu serin serim esen rüzgar. Tamamen savunmasız evet telefon bile yanımda yok!
O an dedim ki kaldığım bir kapı var , en azından açılacağını bildiğim bir kapı.
Ya olamasaydı ...
if we were villains is extremely gay but not gay enough at the same time and I don't know what to make out of it
Quick Thought – Tuesday, May 18, 2021
Read Psalm 100 Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. Psalm 100:4-5 Reflect After Moses led the children of Israel out of Egypt, God knew that they needed a way to continually worship Him wherever they went. He gave them a template for a…

One trope that super annoys me in a lot of tv shows (mostly) and movies (not as often) of the past idk decade or so is when some white character experiences an Accidentally Racist Moment and assumes the Latine* cast representative is Mexican, and is rudely corrected that “I’m not Mexican, I’m [insert any other LatAm ethnicity]” and the white person has to backtrack
I’m not mad bc of the correction or representation of other Latin American ethnicities. I think it’s really great and important to highlight different cultures from the whole Latin American region, there’s a HUGE range of diversity in culture and language and food and customs that most definitely need to be represented and explored in American media.
My problem is this happens to almost every nice, fun, personable, well rounded character. Which leaves the only Mexican representation to be cartel, coyotes, and undocumented migrants/domestic workers. Again, these stories can be super important to tell and represent (if done correctly which honestly I have seen very very few times, at least in more Hollywood/studio productions)
Also often the character correcting the white people are offended at the idea of being Mexican. It’s implying “how rude of you to just assume I’m Mexican, you racist!” Bruh if they’re racist against Mexicans they’re racist against you too, you just caught them off guard
Idk in general I just want this post to be calling for better Latine rep and especially Mexican rep. And like, Latines of all colors, we got light skinned folks and black folks. We have the range darling, it’s time we showed off
* Latine (LAH-teen-ey) is being used here rather than Latinx or Latin@ for:
1. Gender neutral language that also includes non-binary Latin American folks
2. Speakability for Spanish speakers; “Latinx” (or so I recall) was meant to be a figurative placeholder in writing until a better option was found (we found it!) and while in English it’s fairly easy to adapt to “Latinx” in speech, it does not work well for Spanish speakers, and has no way of translating into other gendered vocabulary or work as a usable word in speech. “X” as a letter is pronounced differently in Spanish, and simply just cannot lingually exist well at the end of a word to
I do love the discussions we have in Bible Study, God. I love the exchange of ideas, the exploring of possibilities, the wrestling with meanings. And I love the supportive community those studiers have created.
And I love it when the work that one group has done is received by another, accepted, and affirmed.
And I love it when I have a sense of direction for moving forward. I love it when I have an authorized map to work with as we move into yet another transition of what it means to be church (because the context in which we are church is changing yet again). The path on the ground may not be clear, but the map gives me a sense of direction.
I got to participate in Bible Study today. And the work on a task force at church was approved by the Cabinet. And now Brenda and I have a map to work with. Thank you for each of these gift, God. Amen.
