Tired of bullies, Lying and trying to dominate others. Why can't we converse, respect and reverse The trend that justifies hatred and devisiveness? Tell me why you believe what you believe? Releave me of this pain and help us gain clarity. Derisiveness is what I feel when all around unexamined actions and reactions dominate the landscape, political distractions and manipulations play out in the media and some just steer us away from the reality of production of factions that are unwitting and unwilling to read and research, figure things out. Use your own minds, contribute to finding out what is true and helps you, is what I say, but what do I know? Very little. I know my own life, my own story, my glory is surviving so far. I'm a woman with my own mind. I'll way up what I believe, I'll assess for myself. I'll be the one to decide my own values, thinking critically. Love and tolerance is fair but be accountable or lose my trust. Give me evidence, reason and transparency if you must win me over. I'm not to be swayed by the hysteria of the day, I want facts, honesty and integrity not lies and hypocrisy. Be free but let me be me.
