Orlando Shooting

My heart is broken for the families and friends of the 50 plus victims in the Orlando, Florida shooting, which took place at 2 am est today. 53 others are wounded, some with life threatening injuries. My thoughts and prayers are with them all.

At 6 pm est tonight the Governor Rick Scott called for a moment of silence to remember those tragically killed today, as well as those fighting for their lives from their injuries and those who were not critically injured too.

He asked us to pray for the family and friends of the over 100 people injured and killed by the “American” gunman. Also we should pray for the gunman’s family and friends, as they too have lost a family member today.

Please also pray for the Orlando community, Florida and the LGBT community, all who were affected deeply by this tragic and senseless shooting.

I have friends and possibly family members who are gay, lesbian and transgender and respect their decisions to be happy and enjoy their lifestyle, in a peaceful environment.

 

How do we come together as a community, a state, a world, a society to stop these mass shootings from happening again and again?

How do we get our elected officials, the police, FBI, Home Land Security and others responsible for protecting us, to do THEIR JOB?

FBI agents knew about 911, Boston Bombing and other terrorist attacks before they happened, however nothing was done to prevent it.

This coward was an America born and raised child to Afghanistan parents, yet he took American lives.  The FBI had him in their radar, his employer said he talked about ISIS and his disapproval of LGBT community, yet nothing was done about it.

WAKE UP AMERICA, we are at war in our own homeland!!

Prayers to all involved by this horrific event!

Respect Others

Why Do People Not Respect Other People’s Belongings?

A pounding on the door jolted us from our Sunday  morning activities. A police officer informed us, our properties were burglarized last night and they have arrested the criminals. He also informed us the crime was caught on video tape.

I call my husband and another family member, who lives in the house on our property and inform them of the incident. We look around our yards, in our garage, barn and out buildings to see what was stolen.

My brother’s motor bike was taken, I notify my brother and then tell the officers.

The officers have found the motor bike, along with the two teens/young adults thieves.

Saturday morning my friend’s husband Drew went to pick up his work trailer, filled with his tools and supplies for their flooring company (about $5,000 in value), to find the loaded trailer was stolen from a local storage facility.

Totally Floored if found call Kelly (813-391-4745)  Last seen in Lithia, Florida

Why do people think it is ok to steal or destroy other people’s property?

I was raised to not touch without permission any item which did not belong to me. I was taught to respect other people’s property. I was taught stealing is wrong!

The teens who robbed us, were admitted drug users.

What has this world come to? Do we need 10 foot tall fences to secure our property, 24/7 armed guards, attack dogs?

Yes we have DVR Security cameras installed around the property, sadly a power outage caused the porch lights and cameras to malfunction.

Maybe it was a blessing, other wise we might be in jail right now, for defending our land and our belongings.

How do we stop these needless crime from happening to good people?

5 Problems with Social Media

Day 1 of 30 day Writing Challenge

In today’s society social media rules the world. Humans have lost the ability to communicate face to face with one another without texting, using Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or other social media outlet.

Another issue with social media is it can and does destroy lives. Sadly people of all ages, especially teens post all their “dirty laundry”, along with photos of themselves committing crimes, under age drinking, doing drugs, stealing cars, dressed inappropriately and more.  People of all ages forget that social media posts last forever, even after they are deleted an imprint is still in cyber space.

Today many businesses, schools, clubs etc. use social media as a way to determine if you a good candidate for the job, school or club. Many people have lost good jobs or have been in trouble at school due to a social media post.

Teens and adults meet strangers on social media everyday. Some reveal private information about themselves, trusting the person across the screen. Unfortunately not all social media users are nice, some are murderers, predators or drug dealers etc. Social media has lead to abductions, drug bust and even people being killed by someone they met online.

Some people use social media as a sounding board and cause drama to everyone reading the posts. Others become addicted to online sites, while they neglect their family members, as they spend hour after hour online.

One of the biggest issues with social media is you are exposed to the world.

My advice to anyone using social media is be cautious!
