laid by the past

that had the future

Rich gifts wax poor when givers prove unkind.
William Shakespeare

Just because an animal is large,
it doesn’t mean he doesn’t want kindness;
however big Tigger seems to be,
remember that he wants as much kindness as Roo.
A A Milne

What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other.
Blessed is the influence of one true, loving human soul on another.
George Eliot

“Mom,

can I eat the candy

that was thrown into my Halloween  bag

Image result for halloween bags
from the

Orange Man

and his friends

who lives in that White House?”

X

 

 

“OH NO, SWEETIE! 

THAT man and his “friends” are NOT our friends.

THAT man NEVER hands out candy

to those

who do NOT look OR  do NOT think like him!

ALL TRICKS! NO TREATS!

What you were given

is

FAKE candy!

Sweetie, the man in the white house

hands out

the truth

of

toxic waste

made of vitriol mixed with

hate, lies and fear

that will ravage

your precious body,

your innocent imaginative mind of light
and

your generation’s future.

X

SPIT IT OUT now

BEFORE you get

sick!

X

We cannot bring you to the hospital, sweetie,
because
it will be then documented
as a ‘pre-existing’ condition!
We cannot afford to lose the ACA
which is humane and
ALWAYS
covers
‘pre-existing’ conditions!”

Let music swell the breeze,

And ring from all the trees sweet freedom’s song;

Let mortal tongues awake;

Let all that breathe partake;

Let rocks their silence break, the sound prolong.
