What Will Really Make America Great Again

The acts that have to happen behind the slogan

What Will Really Make America Great Again

Its over folks. Donald Trump is now the elected president of the United States of America. Sure, President Obama will still hold office until January 1, 2017 but shortly there after we will be referring to Trump as Mr. President.

This election was one for the text books without a doubt. It was full of hate, scandals, mud slinging and name calling. I personally loved the "Nasty Woman" comment at the last presidential debate, and if Hillary Clinton is a 'nasty woman" you might as well call me one too.

But this isn't about who I voted for, or who you voted for for that matter. This is about the slogan "Make America Great Again" and what it really means and what it's really going to take to do that.

That slogan has done a lot of speaking for itself over the last year and a half of this presidential race. A lot of people gave it its own meaning.

Let's round up everyone who isn't white and send them back to some country they didn't come from or immigrated from in the first place in order to seek a better life here in America.

Let's dismantle Planned Parenthood and call every woman seeking an abortion a murderer.

Let's put a label on what love is and tell Sally and Sarah their love for one another goes against what God has said and condemn them from getting married and having a family.

None of this is what's going to make America great again. Not. One. Bit.

What we should focus on is making America kind again. Making it caring, loving, open.

America wasn't ever meant to be some hateful land hardened by the closed minds of those who inhabit it.

I love being an American. I love being free. I salute those who sacrifice their own safety in order to make sure I can lay my head down at night and sleep peacefully.

I salute my brother who I haven't seen in a year because he has been overseas making sure we are all safe at home.

But what I don't love about America is this intolerance we've been unable to let go of over the decades.

If you want America to be great again, say hello to the woman wearing a hijab.

Be kind to your neighbor who speaks broken English.

Go to the soup kitchen once a month and feed the hungry.

Help the dad buy his son's soccer gear by shopping small business.

Do these things because this is what will open your hearts and help make this once great nation great again.

Congratulate the newlyweds whether they be heterosexual, homosexual, pansexual, whatever "sexual" they want to be.

Do not fear the black man walking down the street just because of the color of his skin.

Do not fear the man wearing a turban on a plane.

Do not disrespect those who wear a Kipa and attend a Synagogue.

Stand up for those who you see being bullied or harassed, because doing nothing makes you just as guilty.

You see no one man is going to make American great again. It is up to us, the people, the foundation of this nation to open our hearts and our minds. That is the key.

And to Mr. Trump, I hope you prove me wrong with your presidency. I hope you do good, I hope you produce good. And I'm wishing you well.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
