Hey, Ever'body!

I'm a bit shy talking 'bout mySelf, I've been a DU member since the *years..had to come back with a new username..that's ok, tho', Life has changed & so have I!
Where to start? When I 1st signed up, my only 'child' had enlisted. I thought I'd lose my damn Mind..he was deployed to Iraq, & I didn't sleep for more than 20 minutes at a time, for about 5 yrs. NO one I 'knew' could relate, or wanted to discuss, the post-911-*-war. I was truly in hell. I developed major depression, panic attacks, agoraphobia..
I spent days & nights, watching C-span, emailing & calling dc, PRAYING, & I found DU.
I found Military Families Speak Out, and Veterans for PEACE. Thanks God. I was online when other Mamas were terrified & unable to sleep. We supported, comforted, enCouraged each other. And I never let on to my Son, HE needed to stay focused on his job.
A life-changer.. I found my way to Camp Casey, after being house-bound for years, I camped 2 wkends in 3 weeks, with Gold Star Families, MFSO, Vets for PEACE, young Vets. My God. The Healing that took place.
We were camping when Katrina hit. Healing came to a stop when watching the aftermath, screaming at the tv, "GET THOSE PEOPLE OUT OF THERE!" disbelief that in a great American city, death & destruction was rolling, corruption & incompetence in full display, and our Sons & Daughters were in Iraq, even those near the devastation, were prevented from coming to the rescue.
GeeWhizzz..didn't mean to go off on a tear..more to tell, another time.

I am one of the lucky and Blessed..mine came HOME, whole, healthy and strong. Thanks God! 💖
I just need Y'all to know, DU helped me back then, & in the years since, even when all I could do is read DU.. I'm thank FULL for the learning, laughter & Light here. Thanks, Y'all!

Thank you, Calimary!

Great link, post. I am actually a member since early days, with a new username, but I have admired Your posts thru the years! Truly appreciate Your kind 'welcome', tho!
& sorry I didn't reply sooner, rough few days in rl!😒

Ps. Thank you for this post!


We need this!💖

We SHALL overcome. .

Don't You doubt it. I know You're exhausted, weary, despondent, but keep the Faith. Take goood Care of YourSelf, resist when /where You can, but KNOW this weirdness is temporary.It appears overwhelming, that's an illusion. The Goood will out, Love & TRUTH will prevail. Believe it!💖
& don't give YourSelf a hard time for feeling helpless or hopeless .. just hold on, as You go through it.THAT will pass.
Goood is happening, even if we don't see it yet. YOU have some goood Karma coming, You created *blankets* of LOVE for others..& BLESSED the World! BELIEVE IT.

Where/how to get some? !

I NEED a bunch. I NEED 1 for my Home, & a bunch to leave/place in strategic spots. I ~NEED~ some!!

"Suspicious as f!#@"..

..SO describes my convictions (not feelings) after November 8. Thank you. Stay strong. 💜

Such a goood question!

But no, personally,
I spend a lot of time wondering how I can be sharing this Earth with 'people' who are so mean & hate-FULL, I just can't wrap my Mind around it!
I truly try, I just can't imagine how people come from such a selfish, ugly perspective. Makes me sad,& tired....
I see my "ministry" as being the best 'ME' I can be..
the best dang democrat-Christian-Pagan I can be.
When the ugliness seems unbearable, I remember we ALL are on our Path, with Lessons to learn...& Karma is a bit**!
Those mean & hate-FULL ones will likely experience fear, pain, grief, they have inflicted on others.
So let's treat others as we'd love to be treated. That doesn't mean I allow mySelf to be mistreated, abused, manipulated..& I won't accept it happening to other fellow Babies.
Thank you for your provocative question!💖

Thank YOU. ..

SO wish I was THERE. 💖

Thanks! SO much!

I consider mySelf lucky & BLESSED to get 5 channels, with 'rabbit ears'! sure do appreciate your help watching Rachel, that was goood stuff!
Fired UP, to share this info!
