Where do I begin?
People have been saying that I should start a blog of some sort. I didn’t know where to begin. I know that I typically have a different perspective than most people, but I can’t help it. I used to try to avoid it, having been picked on and ostracized, but now I embrace it. Truthfully, I’ve been dragging my feet with regards to starting this page for that reason, who wants to hear my opinion or perspective? I mean, I’m intelligent and all and believe in myself, but that doesn’t mean everyone wants my perspective. Please, this is not a plea for sympathy, so resist the temptation-if any-to coddle me or type flattering words. I have a wife who is very supportive and also very realistic who keeps me grounded when I get too lofty and up when I get too down.
I’ve seen some things in the past year. There have been killings. Protests. Protests of killings. Killings in protest. And it’s sickening. So, I decided to put my fear/false humility behind and seek to start conversations on these issues. I am not a master of any one thing nor am I always right; however, I would like to give my perspective on somethings that have bothered me, maybe they have bothered you as well, and maybe we can start a conversation. Would you like to join me in doing that?
