From my vantage point, people are going about gun control all wrong. I do understand both sides of the issue but there some things that haven't been taken into consideration. I will elaborate in a future post.

Perceptions about place and people can be correct and they can be wrong. When misplaced and incorrect perceptions become reality this is where problems come.

For decades many folks believed that Africa was wild and untamed with savages. Nothing is further from the truth. There are cosmopolitan cities, art, and people who love and care for their country. Much racial strife has been caused by misconceptions of a particular ethnic group. All groups have experienced some form of discrimination. Misperceptions can have disasterous effects.  

As a trans person I see the same misconceptions. I'm amazed that even in LGB community the misconceptions about trans people boggles the mind. I can educate folks about trans topics, it's also up to them to educate themselves. It's also up to people to drop their pride and be open to the fact that maybe their belief system is wrong. Not easy but necessary if wrong perceptions are to change.

Right now I'm creating a commentary about the gun control debate after what happened at Parkland last week. I believe that some points are not being addressed on both sides. I have a different take on this.  

I'm also will addressing the dismantling of our rights and protections (especially TGLBQI protections) as citizens.

A Christian reveals true humility by showing the gentleness of Christ, by being always ready to help others, by speaking kind words and performing unselfish acts, which elevate and ennoble the most sacred message that has come to our world.

There is the need for all of us to become more politically involved. Whether it be community, local, state or nationally, we really need to make our voices heard to those in power.

Perseverance will be needed if the concerns we have are to be solved. The pressure needs to be kept on those in power who do not represent their constituents.I have seen too many politicians and leaders sell out their constituents for money and power. I need to remind them that they will not always be in power.


I was recently nominated to be on the advisory council of my senior center. SAGE (Services Advocacy for G(LBT) Elders is a place where many seniors come to see friends, dine, and participate in the numerous programs available. I will be in the meal committee suggesting ideas from the community on improving meal selection. Maybe I can convince them to serve chocolate cake every once in a while.
