Being a parent is amazing and amazingly hard at the same time. Things that I have never had to experience, I have to walk thru a pool of water and fight the current and slowly move to try and explain to my children. Reaffirming to them that there are good in people. Still, when you watch the news and it almost unravels what you are trying to instill in your kids… its hard. But you keep going. You have to. There is no alternative. Part of teaching your kids are values. Of course the little things like how to shave, and how to use a hammer to strike a nail the correct way. Those are the easy things… the real issues are universal hate that some exercise. You find yourself saying that there are a lot of people who are just angry at how the world is being run. They are acting out because they want to be heard. They aren’t wrong. But some of their actions are. All I ask is that if those of you who decide to behave like this… do it peacefully. Still get your point that you are trying to make across but do in so that my kids don’t have to turn on tv and see the battery, the brutality. I know this post won’t reach you because I am just one father on a simple blog but please get along. Please don’t let the media fuel your hate.

You know I read something on a Facebook post a while ago and it really made sense to me.

Even if the outcome isn’t what you want it to be, Wishing that the president will fail is like people wishing that the pilot would crash, on a plane we are all passengers on.

Please take care of each other. Thank you.
