The Beauty of Disparity

The beauty of being a US Citizen is that we honor the freedom of being different.  On Memorial Day, think about what makes you disparate, and share how it helped you over time.  I think that as a US Citizen we evolve into a different culture across timespans.

Disparity also occurs in family.  This is why a comparison is not warranted.   One may become disparate for many reasons that go far beyond genetics.

The beauty of being disparate is that we may honor it and learn from one another.  It does not make you less than anyone else.  It just means that we have different talents.

Tantrums vs Argumentative

As children, we begin with tantrums. If we let it go long enough it turns nto becoming argumentative. Sometimes we tend to blow things out of proportion. A tantrum can be handled appropriately to reduce the chances of turning into an argumentative individual with no control.

Some people are taught food resolves these things. What happens when obesity arises? There are other ways.

The challenge for everyone you blew up on today, do 10 reps. For example, for three times 30 reps of exercise. Then drink water.

This is America

This is America a mixture of cultures.

It is a shame that discrimination still exists.

It seems like people don’t remember why America was created and founded on principles of equality, life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness. We were trying to do away with all this madness yet it seems like people are being discriminated against.

There are so many instances that I do not want to blow it up. So what do we do. Be more conscious of what we say and how we say it.

Throw certain derogatory words in the trash. Uplift ourselves with our own metacognition sometimes. Learn when to turn off nonsense.

This is America. Land of freedom and opportunity. A place where we can all live in solidarity.
