Donald Trump has been in office 1 year, 96 days, 21 hours and 42 minutes as I write this sentence. My heart and my sense of country is heavy with sadness and doubt.
I’ve been interested in politics since my senior year of high school. I had a teacher than really impressed upon me the importance of knowing your rights as a citizen of the USA. I have never felt as proud of my status as an American until I entered her classroom. She changed my world. I will forever be grateful to her opening my eyes to the world around me. Thank you Ms. Snively! Continue reading “Hope, Faith, Country”

So, for #WaldoWednesday I decided that it might be nice to introduce this man to you. I’ve posted his quotes for a while now but who is this man?
Born Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882) he was known professionally in his time as Waldo Emerson.
I don’t want to bore you with paragraphs of his life so I think I’ll just list some interesting facts. If you enjoy them then let them lead you to learning more about him.
- RWE was a prominent leader in the Transcendentalist movement of the 19th
- He gave more than 1500 public lectures in his lifetime.
- A mentor and close friend was American philosopher and fellow transcendentalist, Henry David Thoreau.
- The death of his first wife, Ellen Tucker, marked the end of Emerson’s belief in organized religion and the start of his Transcendentalist beliefs.
- At age 14, he was the youngest student in his Harvard class.
- Ahead of his time, Emerson was a supporter of the suffrage and abolitionists movement.
- Emerson suffered memory loss at the end of his life.
- He was raised by women.
I find that last fact to be the most important. Because he was raised by women he grew up believing and seeing that women were strong, intelligent people. He worked as a schoolmaster at the school for women that his brother founded. He cared not that society was not yet up to date with his understanding of the equality of women.
I was recommended this book by my book whore sister from another mother. She kept telling me “JUST READ IT DAMMIT” and finally after dragging my feet, reading other books for indie authors and in general just procrastinating……I read it!
The first few chapters don’t tie in well together but hey the author needed to create the background for the story so I get it. I was able to figure it out by chapter 3, how the story was working. Despite the rocky start I was hooked from page one. You don’t often see a love story start with physical abuse or the mention of it. At least I’ve never read a story like that myself.
