It’s a Great Day to be Alive

In spite of the battles all around me, it is, indeed, a great day to be alive!

I think often of my dad, who passed away this past September. At the end, the world brought him down and broke his heart. He served our country in VietNam, and paid the ultimate price for his country….an early death due to the effects of Agent Orange. He was a quiet man….a deeply caring man….The pandemic cracked his spirit, and it went downhill from there. He was my biggest fan, and stood with me as I escaped an abusive marriage and fought court battles with the ex. He instilled in me, a love of human rights and compassion.

As bleak and hateful as the world seems to be, we are alive. We go on to face another day. We gather with the tribe, and plan our battles as we once again, clear the way for freedom and equal rights to be experienced for the next generation!

It is a great day to be alive!
