This is My Blog

I write exactly how I like to write. You can mock me, you can tempt me, you can try to persuade me differently. It won’t matter. This is my blog.

I am going to tell my stories, share my poems, and share with the world my perspective. I wrote my Dreams, and now I am working on a bit more than just those. I am working right now. This is my site. I am doing my work, like some do the Lord’s work, and that is merely so.

Did you know that I have a lot to say? I bet you think it doesn’t matter.

Guess what? It does. Everything we say matters. Everything we do, matters. We’ve already deducted it down to our gestures, but our actions do often speak louder than words. I learn this everyday, because I am imperfect. I am flawed, broken, beat-up, broke, and maybe even on my last lung. But that won’t stop me. I was once a cavalryman, and although not their best, I served.

Now begins my tales. Now begins my stories. Now begins my beginnings. Now begins my adverbs and passages and posts that share with the world, my personal views on current events, news and even celebrity gossip. There’s nothing I won’t cover, because what I cover is my perspective. Note: I might seem like I am rambling at times, but bare with me.

I love life. What do I love about life? The Arts. I love entertainment. As an American, I often venture into my mind and drift away aloft by the ideas and concepts that Directors dream up. I am always so fascinated by their stories.

The Arts. They captivate me. They move me. They drive me. I feel them, and they influence me everyday. I’m a bit of an artist myself, and I like to liken myself to “The Greatest Poet Alive”. Perhaps for gaffes, if anyone notices I want them to take it rather seriously. I also bid thee to read thy book, Mecella’s Dreams.

I am a poet, and I love to write. But more so, I love to make sense of things. I have done so on my own regard, but along the way I have, as my poetry depicts, become enveloped in sin. Man sins, and Women must win. They always win, for we always sin, yes we men, into another day. Why do I so heavily objectify men as to be the cause of major worry and concerns?

War.

But beyond that, I will talk more. Not now. I merely have my own perspective about what is going on. For if I didn’t, I would think that it were the other way around, and it can’t be, right?

Right?

Maybe my thoughts will come off as cynical, maybe they will appear against your faith. Maybe you simply will not agree.

That’s fine. I encourage debate. I welcome debate.

Until then:

It Is Time To End Gun Violence In The USA

The United States of America has a problem, and the problem is gun violence. Decades of senseless gun deaths now plague The United States, and almost no one has done anything about in. In Congress, representatives try to hold logical and sensible debates and discussions about the topic, but to no avail. They fall short, because they fail to capitalize on what the second amendment, our right to bear arms, truly means.

The Second Amendment is now a constitutional law with too many interpretations. The amendment reads, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed”. Within the fine-print of the law, it clearly states that those, and only those in support of the amendment, may carry and utilize a firearm. Though this law was written over a century ago, in today’s world it has been manipulated in its interpretation to further boast arms and weapons sales. Today, across the United States, any American now has the legal right to walk into a store and purchase how many firearms and ammunition they so please. To maintain their status to do so, they have to be registered within their state, and not do anything illegal enough for them to lose their rights to arm themselves. While some states make registration hard (with tough background checks and other procedures), some states make it easy enough to walk into a store without being registered, and registering right there on the spot.

So while purchasing weapons in every American’s now inherited right, is it actually legal? Clearly, the states and municipalities ultimately enforce the laws, but the second amendment clearly states that weapon bearers are for the military, and any supporting militia. Supporting militias include security guards, police officers, troopers, and of course, the National Guard. That being said, why is it so easy for Americans to purchase firearms? It is because it is a great business for the United States.

Recent statistics show that the number of gun deaths has increased over a 5 year period.

In 2017 it is reported that 39,773 died as the result of gun violence. The pattern did not change for the year 2018, and very notables persons have died this year to gun violence. One of those people were Nipsey Hussle, a Los Angeles based hip-hop artist who died of an apparent homicide March 31st, 2019 as the result of gun violence. Another person was shot and killed that same day. The son of one of Philadelphia’s high ranking police officers found out that Sunday that his child was killed as a result of gun violence.

So when, and where will this senseless violence end? Will the people’s representative begin to enforce the second amendment as it should be, or will they continue to allow every countryman and woman bear weapons to their heart’s content? Our culture now embraces gun violence, in music, television and radio. It is all around us, and businesses make billions from it every year. The Military Industrial Complex also makes billions every year off of weapons sales. It is rich within our society, and enforcing the second amendment as it should be, limiting firearms to only the military and supported militias, is the only way to end this senseless gun violence.

I am afraid there may be no other way, and it must happen. So many lives have been taken, and so many more will go because of senseless gun violence.
