Let’s suppose for the moment that we, here on earth, are the only life in the universe. The question then remains are we the first to form or the remains of what once was?
In either case we are a poor example of what life there is currently. Wars, atrocities, serious injustices all because someone has chosen to live or believe different than ourselves.
If we are the beginning then we are off to a very bad start. Surely this isn’t the best we can offer the universe in the early stages of life? Dare we go out into the universe with all that we currently have to bring with us? We are not ready!
If we are the last of life here in the universe then we are a sad testament to what once was and I often wonder how bad it was if we are the example, the remains of what once was? Maybe we were shunned and banished form something far greater? Are we to go out in such a sad state, a dim light fading in the darkness? Surely we could’ve done better?
Regardless of which way this is going, surely we can do better? Let us put in one major effort to start or end this better! Stop for a moment and forget your divides, your prejudices, your short sighted assumptions of that which you don’t know, and see the world as it is for what it is and ask of ourselves “How can I do better?”.
Am I ready to go out there?
Life! How do you want it to begin? How do you want it to end?

True revolution does not require weapons of war or destruction, but a change in precepts to seek out justice in the unjust and to bring about that which is right from all that is wrong. To bring about true ideals that balance lives of those who live in said nation with values of fairness, justice and wisdom.
True revolution begins in ones heart as the soul wearies of unjust acts by those in power and seeks to correct the destructive course of the nation of which they reside to bring about true peace and prosperity.
True revolution comes when one chooses to rise up and say NO MORE, that this has gone on long enough! When one desires hope for humanity in an inhumane world so inasmuch that one will stand even when at their weakest to bring strength to others just as weak and guidance to those lost of heart and hope.
True revolution begins with the spoken word or the written lines of ideals, hopes, and dreams of those who wish to bring about change, true change.
True revolution begins when we elect true leaders that support the ideals of fairness, justice, hope and the dreams of the nation of which they are to serve.
I now stand and draw the line that now is the time to start this revolution to change the direction of which we are headed. Election day is coming, stand your ground, bridge the gap, and stop letting those in power cross the line.
True revolution begins when we finally decide we want change and work as one nation to do just that. No more racial, political nor religious divides!
We are one or we are none!

“Q: …We wanted to see if you had the ability to expand your mind and your horizons. And for one brief moment, you did.
PICARD: When I realized the paradox.
Q: For that one fraction of a second, you were open to options you had never considered. That is the exploration that awaits you. Not mapping stars and studying nebulae, but charting the unknowable possibilities of existence.”

I small snippet of my favorite episode of STTNG. It has always been an inspiration. It, in my eyes, is about how the present and future can be affect by the past and you must deal with the destructiveness of the past to save your future. It showed how everything, past, present and future is connected.
For most of my life I was always there for someone else and many times I lost myself because of this. I never got to see who or what I was or explore my life to its potential. I was the sacrifice for someone else’s agenda or goal. My life was taken from me, now I’m taking it back!
This means removing and dealing with things that had or have a negative impact on my life. Removing people from my life that were unhealthy and bad influences. To finally set myself free and heal.
This has been my journey, dealing with destructive issues of my past to save my present and future. To experience that one brief moment of realization of all the possibilities of my life. To see what my life can really be and to experience and explore so much more of life. To open my mind to options I never even considered. To live!
That is the exploration, the journey, that awaits me!
Seventeen days into 2017 and am hit with sudden and unexpected changes in my life. Just found out today that the park I live in is going on the market to be sold. Not sure at this time what will happen, but for now I plan to stay until I find the need to move. Some of my life has changed in the past few weeks, some good, some bad, but in the end I do like I do when I work security, I just roll with whatever is happening and take it a moment at a time.
If I had the money or the financing I would buy this place in a heartbeat.
2015 saw a major change in my life as I began counseling and went through a breakup, 2016 saw me rise up and 2017 is challenging me to stay afloat and that I will. I refuse to sink this time, I’ve fought too hard to get to this point. I few bad days, a few bad changes, does not mean a bad year.
I will stand my ground!
Am I not enough?
Must I truly match and stand by your religion, politics, color, race, or other life preferences? Must I stand perfectly inline with you to matter, to be enough?
Is it not enough that I serve to better myself and my fellow man, to step out and make difference? Doesn’t’ the mere act of kindness, compassion an love count regardless of who I am?
Is not the world big enough for all of us to exist in our own way, to give in our own way and to be happy as we are, to be as one world improving upon it?
When is enough hatred, bigotry, bullying, and discriminating? When will we finally have enough of separation and loss, pain and hurt, rejection and stupidity?
Why isn’t it enough? Why am I not enough? What is enough? I ask you this!
Am I not enough? If you feel that I am not, then you are not enough and I’ve had enough of you!
