After 4 hours writing a rant, it’s in the draft folder. Why? It’s not finished and it will, in all probability, never be finished because I can’t possibly put into 1000 words the magnitude of my appall.
In a nutshell, let me be clear:
Life is not fair.
The only thing a delusional sense of safety and importance will get you is a one-way ticket into a morgue, a hospital…
…or into slavery.
Yes, you read that right. There is more human trafficking going on in the world today “than ever before in history.”

And the modern slave trader doesn’t care what race, religion or rainbow of colors you come from.
STOP mulling over past wrongs and help the present victims of human trafficking HERE AND NOW.
We are NOT Irish-American or French-American or African-American or Asian-American or Martian-American or anything other than legal US residents who call ourselves Americans. There will always be prejudice whether it’s against white, black, brown, beige, yellow, purple or green people.
If everyone were a homogenous race, color and creed, people would judge each other by the length of their noses.
Look at history and see for yourself if there has ever been a time with as much tolerance for diversity as there is today!
You’ll find that the answer is no.
There are more programs available to help people with disabilities, people of color, and people in general than have previously existed.
FIND someone who is worse off than you are, HELP at least 1 person in your life, and come to terms with the fact that people are judgmental.
