Stop Teaching Hate

When we stop teaching hate and start fostering the love that we are born with we will start to see a decline in they types of events that happened in Boston today.  My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who has been effected in this tragedy. We need to foster understanding of one another, take time to show people we care and stop teaching hate to our youths. I do not subscribe to any belief that anyone is better than anyone else, because of sex, religion, skin color, sexual orientation or any other reason. Some people are taught very early on that some group of people are wrong for some character trait, they take this information from their parents and run with it and some take it to extreme levels which is why I believe these events keep taking place. People go through tough times and they look for someone to blame and usually it is who they are taught to blame from their parents or society. The truth is a lot of the suffering they are going through in the first place maybe could have been helped from spending time with some of the people they have been shown to hate. With all the stuff in the news these days I still believe that most people are good people, what makes me believe this, you ask? I talk to people and get to know them regardless of how they look, dress or how much money they have.

If we all took the time to understand one another maybe we could have a few more hugs and a lot less bombs.

Success

Success, many people succeed in different areas of their live some excel at jobs, some at family, sports, spiritually and many other ways(spelling and punctuation is not something I succeed at sorry).  We all succeed at something everyone has strong points and weak points but the thing to remember most is NOBODY SUCCEEDS IN A VACCUUM.  Everyone somewhere along the way has been helped by someone in which way does not matter but be assured wherever you are whatever situation you are currently in somebody, probably lots of people have helped you.

If you think this does not apply to you, you my friend owe many people a thank you.  Sometimes when people are so driven to succeed in something they don’t stop to notice who is helping them along the way.  I’m sure I have been guilty of this on one, two probably a thousand occasions and I’m sure at one time or another I will be again but these days its important for me to tell people thank you and let them know I appreciate what they have done for me.  Sometimes they don’t even know it so its good to let them know.  Being thankful for the help you receive should have the outcome of you helping others to complete the circle as well.  Yes everyone has the ability to help someone in some way.

I have learned many things from many people my sister Trisha showed me not to care what anyone thinks and to do what’s in your heart.  My brother and father showed me that hard work pays off.  My sister Kristy showed me what being kind to someone is like.  My twin sister showed me what it’s like to have a first best friend.  My mother showed me to love yourself even if nobody else does.  My step mother showed me to be responsible.  My girlfriend showed me that two people can be themselves in a relationship and love each other for it.  My best friend Ted showed me that two friends can never be inappropriate when they are having fun.  This list could go on and on forever and I’m sure I would still leave people out so If I did thank you and if you want more description of what you mean in my life call me cause a lot of super important people did not make the list cause I don’t want to bore everyone more than I already have.

Thanks to everyone that has helped me in my life especially you.
