Why I blog...

I use this blog as a kind of therapy. Sometimes I'm happy and want to share it, sometimes it's just a random thought and sometimes it's to deal with things in my past. After all a burden shared is a burden halved

How to boil a frog

I was told once that the way to boil a frog is not to put him directly into hot water as he will just jump right out. Instead put him in a tall pot of tepid water, where he feels comfortable and slowly, very slowly turn up the heat.

An so I think it has become with our society, these images on the news of bombings rapes and war have become the norm. Our children are growing up with these images and stories and eventually will become desensitized to it.
With all this violence and rape in the media and the hundreds of outraged citizens, you would think someone would have come up with a brilliant plan to eradicate it by now.

We all know something must be done about it, but no one knows how. The only thing we can do in the meantime is try and teach our kids respect, tolerance and self discipline.

When the rap stars are singing about bitches and hoes, our sons will respect women. When religious fanatics are telling them to fight anyone who opposes their belief, our sons will show tolerance.

And self discipline, this one is extremely important, when that hot chick comes onto him in the club and they go back to his place but just in the thick of things she changes her mind, he will show self discipline and respect her no. Even if he doesn't respect her or what she is wearing, the NO is to be respected.
