Simple Realities in Life
It will take a while after those terrifying pulls and yanks to get you out of your Mommy’s tummy darkness into the light and first sounds of human voices, and it does not take long for you to adjust to the calming coos, soft kisses, whispers of love after the umbilical is removed from your tender skin, and you are all cleaned up… Dad and Mom are sighing and smiling happily.
Depending on your inherited ‘lottery number’, other abnormal disease and health factors, plus the cognitive ability you might surprisingly already possess, you will likely settle into the adoring laps of caring people who really and truly love you. That wholesome family environment along with an adequate IQ and desire will ultimately lead you to other rewards of life offerings.
The early months of your living you learn to get diapers changed, food, and attention by displaying an angry squealing. As long as the ‘formula’ is correct you will be well attended with liquid nourishment, soft foods, and a pacifier, with relatives and friends visiting to glorify you and make you smile and at times heartily laugh. The good caring parents will have studied the writing of pediatricians on how to begin teaching your baby with gentle techniques the good and the bad of behavior patterns, the many positive and negative signals that can alert them to patterns of incivility.
Talking and walking can come early in a child’s initial stages, and parents can begin early preparing for schools’ early grades.
Parents bring to their children wide ranges of traditions and values. In our diverse and lovely United States of America we are daily witnessing some bizarre, manipulative, and most troubling events… Marxist-type Anti-Democracy groups, riots, murders, random assaults, thievery, and gross government inefficiency and our southern border giving way to millions of illegal aliens – what Trump-sanity put together, Biden idiocy takes apart.
Perhaps the biggest falsehood of all is that we are a ‘Racist Nation’, promulgated by groups who prevaricate their reason for existence.
WE ARE NOT A RACIST NATION!
WE HAVE FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND LIBERTY AS OUR HALLMARKS! WE ARE A ‘MAJORITY RULE’ DEMOCRACY – AND SOME OF OUR MOST PATRIOTIC CONTRIBUTING CITIZENS CARRY DIFFERENT ETHNICITIES…
The NEA – National Education Association – is working overtime to include in our schools’ Syllabuses a course called ‘Radical Race Theory’, a course to teach our young people that ‘Whites’ are prejudiced against ‘Blacks’… actually, to teach each group to ‘hate’ the other.
Not only is the NEA the costliest union in the nation, it is the most inefficient. Tax payers are footing the bill, and this sham of a group has far-outlived any beginning usefulness they might have had.
The children are America’s future. As we give them our love and guidance for good civic living, teach them our values and good sense for living, let us also make them solidly mindful that we measure our friends on the ‘content of their character’, not the color of their skin.
We cannot solve all the issues in our society, the crime, the IQs, and the selfishness of some, but we do not teach hatred in our classrooms – there is plenty of hatred in our government and in the world.
Impossible, perhaps, but can we not all wish for a ‘Mandate for Peace’?
Of course, I’m gullible, but I can have my dreams of a world unencumbered with wasteful hatred and power struggles.
