About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

Why so many mass shootings in the U.S.A?).13 Possible Answers..(Add More, Please)

1. Guns are very available in the U.S.A.
2. Mental Health programs are not as available as guns.
3. In order to buy a gun, it takes little time
4. In order to sign up for a free mental health program it takes many days..or more?
5. 330,000,000 people in the U.S.A.
6. Lots and lots of guns in the U.S.A. (yes, I think used guns are available to buy)
7. Takes some concern about a persons behavior to get that person to sign up for mental health program
8. Takes little concern about anything to buy a gun (depends on regulations of the state) But it is in the
Constitution that you can be "armed"
9. Guns are relatively cheap.
10 Mental Health Programs are very expensive compared to the cost of a gun. (depending on program)...
.......Yes, some are provided by states, but those take time to sign up for and get, unless an..."emergency"
11 While buying a gun is "easy and quick, and the product is acquired right away, the product from "Mental Health Programs"
is not easy or quick to attain, and often the product from such a program is ....NOT ATTAINED....and more searching
is needed to attain the "product" and a lot more time is needed to to gain some " mental health" than buying a gun.
12. Buying a gun is simple and easy to do....Signing up for and receiving a..Mental Health Program, and getting results..
.....IS NOT EASY TO DO!!!
13. No Federal Program in place to deal with this....yes, funding is available.. but only in the military are there programs to deal
.... with this...(that I know of...& I could be wrong, of course)

Those are 13 reasons...I am sure members of DU can come up with more...(Yes, please add more)

Please, Please, Please, ...Do Not Use Abbreviations or Terms Most of Us.. DO NOT KNOW...

...i saw an abbreviation for .."VCU"....I don't know..so I had to look it up...(Virginia Commonwealth University)

Often there are terms and abbreviations we have to look up, and sometimes we ignore them and don't
understand the post...This happens often and it slows us down. I don't know what to say, but it happens
so often...(and I guess I do it too???)... that this upsets me. Yes, I am upset very easily, but that is me,
and I know that I am not the only one.. How do I know?...This has been posted before a few times, and my guess is, that it will be posted again.. Thank You for reading this.

Full Biden speech...starts at 4min 59 seconds.

Video - Celine Dion .."I'm Alive" -3:29...One of my favorites--Very Positive and Uplifting!!

About Joe, in the future, I believe he will be one of our "GREATEST PRESIDENTS"

...Why predict that?...Joe's has incredible experience as a legislature provider, V.P., negotiator, government worker...etc....In addition, what Joe has been through personally, gives him experience that few leaders have been through. These qualifications as well as Joe's personal..."empathy" for people makes him qualified as few other people have ever been. (the exact opposite of Donald Trump)

This one has 2 billion views...from Frozen..."Let it go"-4 minutes. 3secs.

When we are struggling with difficult problems, here is an idea to keep us going.

.......Just one sentence:..............."If it were easy, it would be easy"..................................

Often we are fooled into believing that this is an ..."easy".. problem to deal with.
............ Lots of reasons for that:

..1 Some are the advertisements that we see.
..2 The gossip that we hear in the media,
..3.Word of mouth from some who have not dealt with the same problem in the same way that we are

..........and so on, and on, and on, and on....and on...and on...and on....

For some of us, the first time swimming is very difficult, and some find it easy...
For some of us, the first time taking a long hike in the forest is difficult, and some find it relaxing
....and invigorating!!
For some of us, when we take a long road trip in a car, it is difficult. Some may find such a trip: fun!!

The list is endless. Especially if it is the first time dealing with something. But sometimes the over all
problem is in itself ...not easy.....Lets take that first one..in a lake with warm water and lots of room...
to swim...Maybe the idea of being in the lake itself is hard for lots of reasons. And learning to swim
is.............NOT EASY ........................................

....Exact same for taking a long hike in the forest...It may look easy, but it isn't..no matter what kind of
"great walking condition you're in, and shoes you may have"

...I guess the solution is.... being very kind to ourselves, and also finding out information about
what problem we are trying to solve.


We can find that information in a library or even on a computer hooked up to the internet.

..Just remember this.....If the problem were easy to solve, ..IT WOULD BE EASY!!!!
...also a side note: It took me many years to figure this out (a whole lifetime)... I thought I knew a lot,
and I was totally wrong (I knew very little about very little)............oh well,

....And as we move on in life, we find out that we know very little....And some people ..............
.....................never figure that out at all...................................................

..................................Thank You For Reading This.......................................
