I can't sleep. So much on my mind. I saw this a few months back when I was working out (when I was still making an effort) and I have to say it came to mind now because I feel like it shows what we need to be striving towards...unity and equality and just an overall concern for the life of others. 45 is iniating divisive rhetoric, prompting nuclear responses, ignoring Puerto Rico and then when he bothers to acknowledge them he throws paper towels at hurricane victims like it is a game and then compares tragedies as a means of diminishing the need in Puerto Rico. Mass shootings in vegas while our government does nothing in terms of regulating. Let me be fair they are not doing enough. Then the U.S. is voting against removing homosexuality as crime worthy of the death penalty...meaning the U.S. decided that their UN vote should support the death of people for their sexuality! What world is this? This is not a game. This is real life. Real Human Life.
I have to be love rules out.
Tomorrow morning at 7:45 Ben and Jenny head out for four days of backpacking and camping in the Wallowas.
And Paul and I head to Eugene for my gallbladder surgery.
Hence the difference in our expressions.

Las Vegas is my home and I am beyond devastated. My thoughts and prayers with all those affected by this senseless act of terror. #Prayersforvegas#Prayersforusall
For me, today marks 44 years of life on this planet, housed in this temple. I'm grateful, blessed & loved.
I'm most grateful to now understand that this journey I'm on, although mine, is NOT all about me. Never has been.
I'm finally awakened to my amazingness, my worthiness, my strengths & sensuality in all its fullness. I no longer dim my light to make others comfortable. I don't apologize for the fires that have shaped & molded me.
I embrace my weaknesses, my ignorances, my brilliance.
I'm STILL here & I understand it to be a priveledge. I'm a servant, not only to the Most High but to my brethren, known & unfamiliar.
My wish on this day is for more awareness and more action & compassion to accompany it. We are all connected. #prayersforusall
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!! #TeamAquarius

Bowlegged Lou/Full Force>I thank my brother Paul Anthony for getting me involved in such a great initiative with former New York Jets football player Walter Briggs and the Hands & Hearts That Care Initiative.884 422-3574 Www.handsandheartsthatcare.com. I be that CAREGIVER so it's so natural for me to want to be a part. We should all be that too. Let's look in on our loved ones & take nothing for granted. Lets check on our loved ones while they are on earth....Just Because. Let's be there for each other as family & friend. Let's don't wait for a situation or an occasion to check on any loved ones with our thoughtfulness & care. With just the same amount of fervor & diligence it takes to be on & in your cellphone,textin,being on computer & social media while putting priority in YO business....you can take out 5 minutes to make a loved one that you aint been checkin for a minute...YO business too. You truly don't always know what somebody could be going through as well without the communication. Don't wait for anybody to reach out to you, you just reach out to them. Some of us walk around with smiles just to hide the frowns. We must always remember our loved ones in Heaven as well! Carry them in our hearts. #Memories#PrayersForUsAll#IBeThatCaregiver#DontTakeItForGranted#Family

If you really wanna see how blessed you are, take a second and look around and I'm sure you'll see someone doing a lot worse than you! This past week alone is evidence of that! My heart has been heavy since Harvey touched down and I had a strong desire to help in any way that I could. I thank God for allowing me to be able to help in my own little way!! It makes me feel really good when I can be a blessing to others! I'm praying for Houston, for Texas as a whole and every one affected by this tragedy. The way I see it, we all have been or will be affected in some way! I love you all and I know trouble don't last always!!! #praying4houstongalveston#prayersforusall#prayingforthosethathavelostfamily#givingisgreat&Godissogood
