5 Actions That The World Needs To See Come From The Church.

The older you get the more you began to question the things that happen in your life. As a Christian you are taught as a child that the world is a beautiful place full of God’s love and Creations and as long as you stay away from that big bad devil you will be blessed for eternity.  However, the older you get the more you see pain and acts of selfishness all around you. Now they tell you that sometimes people are hurting on the inside which makes them do wrong to the people around them and that if you show them love they will get better. But you soon realize that is not really working either and that there are many suffering in the world that had nothing to do with their own actions.  At this point they just tell you it is God’s Plan and that you should not try to understand the plan of a God.  At first this makes sense, how could I just one human in this world truly understand a plan of someone who created it.  Yet, as you grow older and watch people’s choices and how others react you began to wonder if they are doing God’s will as a Christian. The lord knew that setting more rules for every situation was not needed.  The lord gave the commandment to love one another unconditionally and that alone would help Christians follow a way of life that is good. Their is no greater message in Bible, the only job God gave us was to love one another.  Yet, I do not believe that this is what many Christian feel is their duty anymore or just don’t know how? These are 5 ways the church should do to show that we truly mean that we will love one another.

1. Adoption

The church is meant to be a place of worship and fellowship.   There is nothing more depressing than a child without a home.  Children who do not have the option to live with their parents should not live the rest of their lives in government programs. The people that take care of them are not meant to love them and they know this. Growing without feeling like someone loves you and will protect you is not how children are meant to live. The church would be a perfect place to express unconditionally love so that they can do the same when they grow older. ” He defended the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing.” Deuteronomy 10:18

2. Service

Something that people seem to forget is that the U.S. is not as rich as it may pretend. There are many in our nation that need food. This could be fixed by the church.  Within a mile radius of my home are about 5 different churches and I live in a small town. If every church is America gave out food there wouldn’t be a soul in our nation going without food. Whether that means t is brought to them like the meal on wheels program or the people come and pick it up. Also people need clothing, Americas throw away clothes everyday just because the brand is no longer popular or because they don’t want to wear the same dress twice.  Such wastefulness is silly, especially if there is someone outside without shoes or socks in the middle of winter. Just think about the fact that someone lost their foot to frostbite when it could had been prevented with something that is in everyone homes. One thing you can count on is that there will always be someone that is hungry and giving them food would spread more love. So if someone tell you “And if a man hunger, Let him eat at home” 1 Corinthians 11:34 Also remind them that the bible said “Whoever has two shirts should share with the person who doesn’t have any. Whoever has food should share it too.” Luke 3:11

3. Education

Unfortunately, the church has been a blocker for education in the pass and sometimes in this day and age. With education comes power.  If you give people the knowledge to live and support themselves they will be able to have their pride again and help themselves instead of depending on others. Now not everyone can be the idea type of teacher but that is actually better. People need real life skills that will support them like learning how to balance a budget, or how to properly prepare meals. Maybe there is a craft that you have master, you could teach this to the younger generations so that they have a skill when a applying for jobs. Learning about the Lord is important but that does not mean the church is limited to just teaching the lord’s word.  All that means is that you are showing them the proper way to live so that they can follow the commandments. If you teach a man that stealing is wrong knowing they have no source to food or shelter any other way you have defeated the purpose because you did not give that man the tools he needed to obey the law.” For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.” Proverbs 2:6.

4. Health

“Be not among drunkards or among gluttonous eaters of meat, for the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty, and slumber will clothe them with rags. Proverbs 23:20-21. This nation is known for its over need in everything. More, More, More is the American way but is it the Christian way. No, it is not taking what you need in moderation is not just a sign of humbleness but in health. Each year the population is getting bigger and not in a good way.  Over eating has guided many to their graves because of the pleasure of eating everything they wanted when they wanted. The lord gave us the task of watching the worlds animals and what we have done is disguising. The need for meat is so great that we do not farm in natural ways because it would not be productive enough. Then there are all the sugar we eat everyday. The result is the people of this nation are sick on the inside causing outrageous hospital bills that no one can afford. Our preachers need to take a stand and encourage people to eat right.  This is what harsh love means. Not when people describe other peoples choice in partners as disgraceful. Over eating is a sin in the bible so how come preacher hardly advocate for their followers to eat health. The church needs to stand strong and encourage a healthy lifestyle on all fronts.   “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

5. Love, Peace, and Happiness.

In a world full of hate their should always be a place you can go to find peace, the church. We know that their are many that are not accepted in this world for no fault of their own.  If you look at people you don’t recognizes as outsiders to your church, you are the problem.  No one has any right to claim a church because it is a place meant for healing. If you walk into a church and only see one race there is something wrong with that church.  Churches that only have one race in it does not happen on accident.  That happen because of the people in it. If you can not accept the idea of loving people outside your own race then you yourself are deeply sick and need to fix yourself. The church is suppose to stand against oppression like Dr. Martin Luther King did to show that you do truly believe that everyone deserves love.  “Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.” Isaiah 1:17 There is no way around it, the lord gave us the mission to spread his words of love. This world could really use that so when will the church finally open its doors and spread love?

5 Ways America Society Is Making You Mentally ill

If you have ever watched the hunger games one detail that is often overlooked are the people who were provided with everything.  Their lives were so simple that watching children kill each other was seen as entertainment.  Having all the resources you could need or wanted sounds like paradise, but when humans have no goals in life we begin to lose something important, passion.  Society takes up new activities when survival is no longer a struggle and try to find something to feel passionate about.  For example fashion or some type of extreme sports to fill their lives with excitement or purpose. We are filling our time with useless wants and desires.  These are 5 mentally illnesses that are growing because of our society.

1. Anorexia

Anorexia is when your body weigh is extremely low to the point that you could die from starving.  There are more than 200,000 cases reported a year in the U.S. if you look at the studies from the National Eating Disorder Association. Now you should consider that as time passes more people were able to afford going to the hospital which may cause a jump is statistics. Still the numbers are increasing especially the gap between men in women for this disorder.  Anorexia is most commonly found in preteens to young women. Due to social norms, women attempting to become underweight is seen as an accomplishment.  When girls are told skinny is better they continue to lose weight no matter what the cost to their bodies.  Sadly, this is one of the most encourage mental illnesses to have in America just watch America’s Top Model and they will show you how being underweight is required to be beautiful.

2. Bulimia

This is another mental illness that is more common among women.  This is one of the steps or symptoms people with anorexia have.  Mental illness can grow because of what type of society you live in.  It is  not by accident that Bulimia is more common with women. Society has told them that starving yourself to look good is a choice.  That way of thinking should never be an option and yet to this day we still encourage women to make themselves smaller to please others.  This illnesses takes the biggest damage with those peoples teeth because of all the acids they are releasing daily from their mouth.

3. Hoarders

When I first heard of the idea of what a hoarder was I did not believe it.  The idea that people would willing fill their homes with trash just seem like such a bad idea that no one would do that on purpose. However, after watching a few episodes of hoarders I started to understand that this was about much more than having too much trash or being lazy. This lifestyle is a form of expressing grief.  The people on those shows lost something special that could never be replaced so instead of looking to people for support they began to hold dearly to anything they own whether or no it had value. This is their way of controlling something in there life.  In America, we encourage people to keep buying even when they don’t need it because we are a capital run society and this type of greed is overcoming our abilities to find comfort in people instead of object.

4. Anxiety

From the day we are born we are taught to judge. Anxiety is the product of someone feeling they are out of place or don’t belong.  Anxiety is much more of an external problem because we are judging every person we lay eyes on.  Some people have to deal with this more than others due to their gender, sexual partners, race, or birth defects.  We as a society are causing so much pain, yet we pretend it is not connected.  All we can do is teach people coping skills to handle the pressure instead of stopping the people and habits that are causing anxiety.

5. Obesity

Now in the U.S. alone there are over 3 million cases being reported a year dealing with obesity.  Many tend to believe that this is a sign of wealth but that is not true.  The poorer you are the less likely your are to have fresh produce daily.  High calorie foods are cheap which causes many to buy more of it.  Now many like to look at being overweight as the main problem that can only be solved with working out but that is just more propaganda to cover up the real issue.  You can be the right weight and still have high blood pressure.  It is not about the weight, the main problem is how you maintain that weight. Eating 500 calories in fruits verses candy does make a difference on the inside and it is causing more health problem for people who thought they were fine.  The BMI scales does not prove that you are healthy.  True obesity is just another mental health problem.  Just like the hoarders people become addicted to food to fill the space of another problem.

Fighting Against Society

The moral of this story is that our society is making us empty inside.  I am not saying that these mental illnesses would all go away if we had a better society, however I do believe that the increasing numbers of cases are growing because of our society.  It is not random that worm suffer from anorexia when people constantly praise being underweight as a form of beauty.  We are making people mentally ill and if we continue this path the only people who will profit are the hospitals. Sometimes less is more.

The Transition from school to Prison


Our public schools are falling into a dangerous situation that can only lead to our education system turning into a prison. The transition is slow but noticeable if you look at how the system is operated. Sadly, the increase deaths from school shootings are encouraging this process. I can show you just how this is happen and it is going to make you reconsider more security in schools.

What is a teacher’s true responsibility?

One of the most rewarding careers emotionally you can do is become a teacher. Teachers are the most influential people in many children’s lives. Eight hours a day five times a week, children are in the care of teachers. The amount of school shootings every year rises. This is a painful truth that America does not know how to respond to. These are some of the first statements that are always asked.

  1. Why didn’t someone speak up about their behavior?
  2. Do we need more gun control?
  3. Do we need more guns?
  4. Was he mentality ill?
  5. Someone should had seen the signs, where were the teachers.

People wonder if the teachers are not paying enough attention to see these signs. What they don’t seem to understand is the daily pressures involved when dealing with their students. The definition of a teacher is one that teaches or one whose occupation is to instruct. However, America has seemed to forgotten this fact. The sole purpose of a teacher is to education their students to the best of their capability in the time given to them. But now they expect this already low-budget career to pick up the stack of other occupations. So what are a teachers true responsibilities?


Should I die for you?

This topic comes up often when a school shooting has happen. Should teachers be expected to risk their lives. Many times you will see stories about the teacher who took the bullets hoping to give their students a chance or the janitor who runs to tell everybody to get out when they knew they wouldn’t survive. What it means to be a teacher is changing. This year alone there has been over 10 school related shootings.

The death of a child is hard to watch and no one would want to bear witness to such an event. Every year the amount of school shooting rises. So who do they look to in order to handle the situation, The Teacher! That is simply just an unfair burden to place on people who are already supposed to risk their lives. Many of the situation involve a former student. People actually think that a teacher someone who is expected to guide children into the future should be prepare to kill one when needed. Emotionally, this is a terrible idea and it is no good financial either. America’s educational system has always had to deal with cuts including teachers’ pay.

There is no money left over to make such a proposal happen. If one of the teachers makes a mistake and accidently harms a children the district will pay thousands of dollars for endangerment of a child. There are good teachers, but there are a lot of bad ones as well. There is no way to guarantee that teach won’t lose it and do something awful themselves.

So what was my point in all of this, teachers are not angels. We cannot expect to solve all of these problems by making it there job. That is just adding another piece of tape to an overworked machine. We should not pressure teachers to own guns when they already have given up so much. Teachers with guns is just one step closer to a prison facility.

The Parent

Depending on the area many parents spend their time working just to give child what they need. Then there are the children that come from broken homes making schools the only place they can be notice. When children come to school they are expected to sit and focus for seven hours against their will. Now when I say against their will what I am referring to is the fact that most children are up before the sunrise to get ready for school. Then others are forced to wear specific clothing to make everyone look the same. Then the student study every subject each day and repeat. The system of America’s school are set up in a way that makes it feel like there is no sense of freedom. During this time the teachers are expected to monitor the students and make them behave. The school system is a form of structure but when the home front in a battleground the students come to class with crazy attitude because that was the only thing they were shown. This is one of the roles teachers are expected to take, the parent.

Guidance Counselors

Now the role counselor has been one of the biggest things expected from teachers. Counselor help many get over past or current pain and decision. Another old problem the schools have ignore are bullies. Now in every teen movie the bully is some future looking low life that are good at homework AKA nerds. Or there is the popular guy that is full of his self that goes home to any abusive father. Somehow with an average class of 20 to more student. Teachers need to intervene in every situation that turns south. But that is just not how reality works. The bullies or the ones on the receiving end are not the other ones suffering. Most of the students are confused on who they are and struggle to be themselves. Also the need to show the student how they should behave has somehow shifted to the teacher. That alone is a full-time job. Children are full of pure emotions that are expressed in many different ways. As seen in the rises of suicides and school shooting the children need guidance that is not currently being given. This is the next role expected to come from teacher.

Job Coach

Once a student is 18 they are expected to either continue their education or find a job. Learning how to support yourselves is one of the most value lesson of life. Many students do not understand what they want to do? It is not an easy choice to make even adult struggle with understand what they should do. Now I do believe that there should be teachers just for planning out future possibilities, yet currently we are lacking in such programs. Every teacher will tell you that student often as why learning this or that would be productive. Student are concern about how useful they are in the actual world and not just in the classrooms. Teachers have limits on how they can present the material given to them yet this is something most expected teacher to be able to answer.

Will we allow Americas school to become prison?

The more you look into how the school system has change the more it becomes apparent. The teachers are being encourage to take up arms, the student are forced to wear a required outfit, once you are they you cannot leave at any time unless certain circumstances have occurred, and if you do not show up you can be prosecuted by law. Letting teachers have guns will only be the start to changing what school is supposed to be and we should not let that happen.

10 Problems with the U.S. Educational System


According to The Center for Public Education, most high school require between 175 and 180 days of school and/or between 900 and 1,000 hours of instructional time per year. So that means in four years you would spend about 700 to 720 days totaling to an average of 3,800 hours in high school before you graduate. In more populated state the amount of hours increase to an average of a little over a thousand per year.  We spend almost 4,000 hours in high school so what exactly are we doing with all this time to prepare student for the future.



Do you think we should have homework in high school? At first, the idea of having students not doing homework sound like something a lazy scholar would say but is homework effective or necessary. Like I stated earlier students already are required at the very least 3,800 hours before graduating. To put that into prospective if you worked that much a year at minimum wage you would be at around 8,500 dollars per year.  As an adult just think about all the thing you could accomplish if 8 hours of 5 of your days were dedicated to learning, you could learn several skills for most job training.  So like I said earlier taking up more of a student’s time will not make them smarter if the time is not used properly.

2. Reading & Writing Levels


In 2015, 37% of twelfth-grade students performed at or above the Proficient achievement level in reading. There is one thing high school should teach you before you graduate, and that is how to reading and write.  Most people would agree that if you cannot read and write to a certain level you should not be able to graduate.  However that is not the case most students are nowhere near what they should be in their reading.  I have seen this myself in my own high school where people walked across the stage but I know they would struggle to finish a one page essay.  Knowing all the rules of grammar by heart is unnecessary but you should be able to communicate you thoughts in your writing as well.

3. Presenting Lies as History


There are many issues our educational system faces. One of these issues is the way we presents the information to them.  For example, one of the biggest lies we were taught in school was about Christopher Columbus.  We have proclaimed for generations that he discovered the Americas but then are given information that contradicts that theory.  There were already people living there? You cannot discover something that is already being used.  Everyone knows this yet we are still presenting a false image of how the nation was found.  The scope of history taught in school is also way too limited.  There are many events that have taken place that should be cover in classes but are not.  Teaching about the same events in history over and over does not help anyone.

4. The No Child Left Behind Act


The No Child Left behind Act was created during the Bush administration in hopes to boost our educational system. In theory, the idea behind making the legislation sounded like a good plan but it was a failure.  Instead of trying to educate the students more we actually did the exact opposite.  Students that could do work up to standards were ignored and students that did not have the level of education they needed were pushed through.  Also teachers were required to teach students how to be better test takers.  I remember having whole days dedicated to knowing how to take test better so you could play the odds of doing well even if you did not know the answer.  So instead of trying to make students more educated the government decided we just need to appear to be doing better which actually hindered the students learning experiences.  Knowing how to take a test will never be a job skill and should not be a focus in any school system.

5. Learning a Second Language


Why are we not adapting to the rest of the world? In basically every major nation the students learn to speak more than one language.  These classes often start during middle school or sooner.  Yet in America it is only required to take 2 years in high school.  Because of this, it is very unlikely that any of the students will retain any of the language they may had learn.  Only knowing how to speak one language closes us off from the rest of the world along with many great opportunities because we cannot communicate ourselves unless someone translate for us or only speak to people who know English. The system of having a second language taught in high school only is out of date.  There was a point in time when America and Britain was the lead so everyone learned to speak English in other nations but that is no longer the case.  The world is globalizing and if we can only communicate in one way we will continue to fall back because most people do not want to work with people that cannot talk to them because it is frustrating. Even our government recognized this in 2003 which led to developing the National Virtual Translation Center (NVTC) to endorse language learning and recruiting translators to serve military and national security needs.  The year 2003 was over a decade ago yet we have not made much progress since then.

6. The Types of People That are Hired


There are a lot of people that should not be teachers. Teacher are not only presenting the youth with knowledge, but their personal views as well.  This can affect how a class is run causing certain students to be judge more than others.  The personality type of a person should be a great factor in whether they should teach or not.  I know I am sick and tired of seeing cases of students being physically or sexually harass by their teachers.  This needs to stop.  Sadly though until teachers are paid the way they should be this is very unlikely to happen.  If you are not willing to pay people way they deserve then the result will be what is happening right now, you will hire people that should not be hired because you cannot afford the good ones.

7. Life Skills    


 High School does not prepare you for life, but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t. We have a perfect opportunity to teach children when they grow up how to provide for themselves yet we do not use it?  There are things people need to know how to do that no one is teaching how to do for example:

1. Taxes?                                                2. How to get a Drivers’ License?

3.When you should start applying for college?

4.When you should start applying for scholarships?       5. How to vote?

 8. Job Training


Another thing schools seem to ignore is the fact that not everyone should go to college straight out of high school. There is nothing wrong with not going to college.  First of all it is expensive and many fail there first semester because they did not have the skill level they should had received in high school to be prepared for college.  Instead they need to start considering advocating job training in high school so students can prepare for a route that will not involve going for thousands of dollars in loans.  Having a skills can led to other chances in the future for college once you know what you want.  There is nothing wrong with taking your time to get a college degree instead of going right out of high school when most people cannot even decide what their major should be.

9. School Dress Code


We should not be telling children how to dress themselves in public high school. If you cannot trust a high school student to dress themselves properly then we have hit rock bottom.  Yes, some people like to expose themselves more than others but in the end they are underage and the only real problem with that is the people looking at them in a sexual way.  Also, the market for school clothes is almost a scam.  Most school outfits are not made of comfortable material which a student is expected to wear for hours 5 times a week.  These clothes are not cheap, they waste parent’s money when they could just dress themselves like normal instead of having to buy clothes just for school each year.

10. Bathroom Breaks


It is childish to have people who are over the age of 15 to ask for bathroom breaks. Most students are 18 when they graduate meaning they are old enough to smoke, join the army, drive, and take out loans.  Forcing people who are trying to become adults to ask for bathroom breaks just does not make sense.

These are 10 problems I have with the current educational system for the U.S.

Revolutionaries for Education

Suli Breaks
Today I want to talk about spoken word, my recent favorite has become Suli Break. I first heard of this spoken word videos a few months ago and it was an amazing experience. His video “Why I hate School but Love Education” was inspiring to me.
He stands firm in his words and engages all ages with the way he speaks. I could relate to his speech as a current college senior trying to understand what was my end goal for schooling, has it me prepared for the world? I know that many college students are lost. Everyone keeps telling us, stay in school get good grades because it will help your future but is that really the case? I wonder this all the time but my mind has been program to just keep going because that is what you’re suppose to do. If you feel that way too you will love this video because Suli Breaks covers this from head to toe.
Education in our society has grown into a mess of marketing propaganda and control environments. There is so much to learn about this world and yet we become confined textbook and test. Our education system needs a widespread renovation to actually create critical thinking and not the same topics that will not apply to most people’s future. Our education should be for the cultivating of the people not a money maker for the few.

Suli Breaks
If you have not seen any of this his work I suggest you watch right now. He is not afraid to hit hard issues of our current day society. His gives words of encouragement and I believe the whole word should have a chance to hear him speak.Education

Were the Loans for College worth it?

Going off to college is an amazing experience that can mature and grow your personality. You meet new people and get away from your parents giving you the chance to become more independent.  At least that is what most guidance consolers will tell you but is it really worth it?  According to College Data in 2016–2017 the average expense for a public school a year is $24,610 and if you decide you want to go to a private school it basically doubles to $49,320.  This is the amount of money they accept is reasonable for an average 18-year-old just graduating high school to pay off.

So now the question is how do I pay for it?  The first thing that people will encourage is that you try for scholarship money or loans.  Anyone who has ever applied for a scholarship knows that is a gamble.  Unless you are talented at a sports or have amazing grades with a winning essay it is unlikely you will have enough money to pay without loans.  Unfortunately, in our culture we take loans way too lightly.  The amount of debt the U.S. will allow some one under the age of 21 to sign up for is almost criminal.  Let’s just compare things you cannot do before the age of 21.

  1. You cannot legally drink alcohol
  2. You cannot rent a car
  3. You cannot go into a casino
  4. You cannot go to a 21 & up club
  5. Getting your 21 Driver License
  6. Marriage

All of the activities listed above have been accepted by the courts that you are too young to decide on your own to do before you are 21. Yet, going thousands of dollars into debt is not seen as too big of a decision for an 18-year-old to make.  There is a reason the ones above are listed; it is because these are life choices that have major consequences when made thoughtlessly.  Now, I’m not saying that taking out loans for college should be illegal but at some point there should be a limit.

Why do I believe there should be a limit?

I am currently a college student in my senior year. Now I am one of the lucky few to have money to pay for school because of scholarship money from several donators and scholarships for grades, sports, and great organizations like the NAACP.  Not only that but I have parents who never doubt my ability and will support me as much as the can.  As my father would say “Just doing enough for my family is not enough.”  I take my college education very seriously because I know if I fail I will disappoint everyone who believed in me and make the young girls that are in my area believe that graduating college is just a dream.  I believed everyone would view their education like I did coming into college knowing how much work I put into being able to afford this chance.  I learn very quickly that some people do not see the value in what they are doing.

Are you going for the experience or the education?      

I can confidently say that I have encounter several students along the way that sadly never had a chance to make it. Not all the student that get into college actually have the educational level they would need in order to pass the classes.  Now you may think that I am exaggerating but it is true.  They may had been able to do enough to get in but academically they were not ready.  The school can only help you so much with tutoring and maybe you do get a good enough grades to pass but any form of scholarships the school may have gave you is gone because you could do only the bare minimal leaving you to foot the bill the next semester.    Then there are the unwilling students.  These students are the ones who are not ready maturely so the do whatever, whenever they want.  These are the students that you know have the same classes as you but you never actually see them in class.  They are not concerned about student loans or the fact that someone is paying for them, either way they are wasting their money to have fun.  College should be an enjoyable experience however that should not be the reason you go but we have gotten so use to the idea in our society that there are even site for the best party schools and etc.

This is why I believe that there should be a limit to how much a student can take out when applying for loans. Most adults with student loans will tell you that they didn’t understand what they were doing at the time and how much it would affect their future.  College can be a great tool to further your education but that is only if you are ready to receive it.  Do not fall into the trap of student loans.

The Battle Of The Sickest: I might do (____) but at least I’m not fat?

My Sickness Is Better than Yours

Americans idea of health is so out of wacky that we celebrate peoples sickness. People are perfectly comfortable telling someone who’s overweight to work on their bodies but are silence when someone weight 90 pounds enters the room. What is worst eating to the fullest or starving yourself to death. The answer is neither yet we shame those who have more weight than average and celebrate those who bones are visible from the lack of fat.

The BMI Is A Lie

So you are within the BMI scales for your weight so you must be healthy right? Sadly that is not how that works, all that means is that you are at the right weight for your body but that doesn’t what is in it is any good. If all you feed into your body is deep fried or candy you body is not getting the proper nurturance. Number one example, drinkers.

Drink Until You Drop

Now when everyone is at a party having fun and challenging each other to see who can drink the most you know what you don’t heard, people talking about their health. Just think about it, if someone overweight posted a picture of them celebrating with five burgers in their hands there is an endless line of people prepare to talk about how that is so unhealthy and disguise to do to your body. However, if there is a photo of someone about to have 5 drinks at once posting that they don’t know where they are going to wake up tomorrow everyone tells them to have a good time and go wild. Both actions are terrible decisions, yet most would agree that the over dose of alcohol can be more harmful to themselves and others.  When that person finishes eating all other those burgers they are hurting themselves but that is a long term situation.  After the other person drinks all that alcohol all it would take is for them to get in the car and they could kill themselves and others. Yet, you know which person is judge more harshly about there habits, the one who ate the burgers.


Due to research most people are accepting just how dangerous smoking really is. Unlike the 70’s you can not smoke in hospital, public spaces, and inside most institutions. Smoking is harmful to more than just the person lighting the cigar.  Thousand of people have died due to second-hand smoke. Can you image wanted to smoke so badly that you would be willing to risk the lives around you for your own pleasure. Now not all smokers are careless because they do understand that this habit is harming them. That odor gets into the car, house and any other type of property that is used by that person. This is another unhealthy habit that people never judge as harshly as eating too much.


Sex is apart of life but is also dangerous. Now when I say sex can be dangerous your first thought is to think about diseases. Yes, STDs can destroy your life but there is also an emotion aspect to it. You know who I am referring to the ones who post vague messages of love and say it is for that special lady. Playing with peoples emotions is much more serious than we pretend. There are many people who just want sex for sex this post does not deal with you.  This is for the men and women who know the person their with wants to have a life with them but know they just want sex and will say what they think you want to hear. This causes a world of distrust and the worst case scenario is someone gets pregnant and now there is a child that does not have a home because they weren’t ready for them. Sex is a dangerous game that is doing harm whether people want to accept it.

We All Have Struggles

The next time you feel like you need to talk to someone and shame them about their health you should make sure these groups are at the top of your list.  Everyday people take their fun at over weight people because of their choice of weight and hide behind the idea that they just want them to be health so they don’t look like the bad person.  Either way, the activities listed are serious health choices people make everyday. Maybe you should start remind them that they are taking years away from their lives as well. Everyone has their own battle.


5 Plants That Will Make Your Life Better

One of the biggest concerns when working in closed areas is the air.  However, the solution for that has been right in front of our faces all this time, plants.  Plant are so good at cleaning the air that NASA has done several studies to understand just how well a plant can do. If NASA was willing to do the research you should probably take the advise and use these natural filters that can also make your home look better.

1. Lavender

This plant can reduce stress & anxiety. I’m sure you have seen lavender oil and candles in stores, this product is know to help balance your mood. If you brew the leafs and mix with hot water you will have a at home remedy for sleep complications.

2. Aloe Vera

This is another plant that is a common substance in lotions, oils, and all other type of skin products.  You can use this in any hair type from 1a to 4c and it will naturally moisture your hair.  Its also a great face treatment with a good smell.

3. Peace Lily

In studies from NASA it has been proven that this plant can clean the air of pollutions that cause several skin irritations.  It is an easy plant to grow making it a perfect house hold plant the doubles as a filter. However, this plant is not as useful for cat & dogs so if you are a pet lover I would suggests you not pick this one.

4. Bamboo Palm

This was another tested plant to find natural ways to clean the air.  This plant does not need much sun so it is a good choice for homes or the offices.  If you want cleaner air in your homes plants like this can help.

5. Mother-in-Law’s Tongue

Now most people will refer to this as the Snake Plant but for obvious reason I felt that its other name should be known. This is probably the most productive at turn CO2 into oxygen. It would be idea for areas of the home that may be damp like a basement getting rid of all of those harmful toxins for you.

So if you want less Formaldehyde, Benzene, and Trichloroethylene in your home this is the way to do it.

5 Groups That Should Be at the Frontlines for Adoption

How should you view adoption?

One thing you must understand about adoption is that it is not a pet store.  You do not have the right to express why yoyo thought a certain child would be better than others.  Now I do understand that you have the legal right to pick the child you think is the strongest, smartest, or prettiest however as a human you have the responsibility to make all the children feel like they had an equal chance. Also there is nothing wrong with wanting to have a child that looks like you that is only natural but should not make the other feel like they are worth less because you didn’t want them.

1. Pro life or Anti-Choice Groups

Now there are many reason why certain people choose to have abortions.  Sadly, one of those reasons are because they truly believe they won’t have the chance to have a family. As a person who has watched several debates on abortion the number one thing you always hear is that there are plenty of parents waiting to adopt or that they are taking away their chance to have a family. As of 2016 according to the Children’s Bureau there were 117,794 children waiting to be adopted.  Saying that some one will adopt that child when there is no way to guarantee this will happen is almost evil. Could you picture  going to any of these children and telling them there are families waiting to adopt but for some reason you just got left behind.  If people truly want to help prevent abortions then you must firth make sure the children here now get a chance to have a family.

2. Churches

Now there are a few churches that take in orphans but that is the problem, why is it only a few? There is not a single Christian pastor alive that will deny that the bible tell us to love each other equally.  If what they say is true then almost every church in America should be a home for these lost children.  Go to your local church and ask them why you do not offer such services.  Churches are suppose to show the way when their are children believing they are alone in this world. Just think about that the next time you see a mega- pastor.

3. ChristiansCCC

Yes, this does deserve a separate category. Why, because one is about an organization and this will focus on the individual. Again, you will not find a Christian that will flat out deny that they are suppose to love everyone.  Obviously humans are not perfect, we make mistakes everyday but if this person proclaims to be Christian and they are in their adult years and by this I mean 30 and up they should ne the frontlines when it comes to adoptions.  There are over millions of Christians in the U.S. About three-quarters of Americas identity as Christian which means there is more than enough to adopt every child in America.

4. Same Sex Adoption

Sadly, there are people who believe that a child is better off not having a family than to be with a couple of the same sex. I did not learn about this until recently and I still find it hard to believe that their are people out there purposely stopping a child from getting a home. If you are a same sex couple you probably know already what states are trying to prevent the paperwork of adoption even though it is legal in all 50 states. America government is not doing what is best for the children and that needs to stop.

5. Everybody else with a Good Heart

There are just some people that can not be parents. There are parents right now that shouldn’t be parents. That is the whole reason why we have his system. We must do better, children are suffering and are almost twice as likely to have a mental disorder from living in these government institutions.

No one in this world wants to be lonely especially a child.    esdDoCE9_400x400

5 Ways Tiny Homes Can Provide Freedom

1. Price

The number one reason people look into tiny homes is because of the price.  Owning a tiny home will cost much less than buying a regular sized home.  At first people tend to be afraid of this idea because of what others will think but overall these homes are not as tiny as you think.  America has become accustom to the bigger the home the better life you are living America dream.  However, more house does not equal to happiness as many work day & night just to afford these major mortgages. Tiny homes can give you financial freedom. Everyday people are saving between 30,000 to 50,000 just to put a down payment on a house but now you can buy the whole house at once for the same price. This is a very appealing thought to those who do not want to spend their lives paying for a house.

2. Development Projects

Apartments are mainly the product of a lack of space & money meeting demand. Now you may think if it is the same amount of space why not just get an apartment ? Well because there is one major difference, rent. You can never own your apartment no matter how much you pay.  Even for low-income families once they have paid enough into the home they will own a home no matter how small that is a accomplishment of its own. If some one pays about $700 a month on rent and does this for 6 years, that would equal up to about $50,000 which would had been enough to buy a reasonable priced tiny home.  This would mean that this person will no longer pay rent.  This could help millions save instead of paying until you no longer want to live there.

3. Leaving Junk Behind

America is one of the most wasteful places on earth. People are collecting items more than they ever had before because they have room to store them.  If you have seen an episode of hoarders then you can see that having more items can become a disease that could destroy the home and those peoples way of life. Having too many items can be a way of coping with a bigger problem.  People who do not have control of their lives tend to hold deeply to their possessions because they believe they can at least control their stuff even if it is trash. Our wastefulness is literally hurting the planet by filling plastic into the seas and disrupting acres of trees to make more factories to build more junk.  Tiny living encourages people to have less and use their homes to live and not a place to just store items that had no use to beginning with.

4. Transportation

For people who love to travel this is the best option of living. Unlike apartments you are paying for something you can use later. If you have an apartment and decide to leave for 3 months, you are still paying for that space that was not being used.  Not only would a tiny house be the more affordable option but certain types can be moved. It is common for tiny homes to be transportable meaning if you find some place you would like to stay, all you would need is to find land.  Image being able to move everything you have all at once. Also if you choose to sell the home you can market your house to anyone since it does not have to stay in that area.

5. Jobs

People tend to pick where they live due to the distance of their work.  As I mention earlier tiny homes make it easy to move meaning people will have more freedom in their job search.  This would be amazing for those who like having options but need security.  Tiny homes can completely change the way people will search for opportunities.

These are just a few ways Tiny homes can help free you financial giving you more time to do what you want now instead of waiting till your old so you can pay for that oversized house that caused more harm than good. If you are still not convince just think of it like this. At McDonalds you can get that super sized fries or you could get a small, which one is truly better for you overall?


10 Types of Warriors in the Black Panther


  1. Nakia: The fighter with a good heart            MOTHERLAND_EW_Spread.40.fin.JPG                                                                      This is one is a favorite for many, Nakia. She is the person that showed her loyalty could never be challenge for doing what is right. She believed in staying true to the throne but she refused to let that type of thinking cloud her judgement in doing what is right. She is also shown to care about the outside world which was also against the teachings of Wakanda. She is also shown to be the strongest of her clan when the challenges were taking place but that doesn’t make her any less feminine being a warrior. Her heart was always in the right place.
  2. Killmonger: The aggressor with a strong will.                                                                 This is one of the best antagonist I’ve seen in the marvel movies. This was a man that had dealt with much suffering in his life. He was left to defend and fight alone never depending on anyone. This made him strong but equally as cold hearted. You untitledtruly see how cold his heart is when he shoots his own partner who earlier could be seen as his lover. He was the person who wanted to do all the right things but in all the wrong ways. Some of us want to do the right thing but it just won’t work the way we hope. Some of us are always in trouble even when we don’t mean it.
  3. M’Baku: The strong but perceptive.                                                    Reactions-MBaku-Black-Panther-Movie                               Now this guy is pretty unique to the storyline. He is presented as strong and unwilling to back down, however we are shown that he is actually a light-hearted guy who likes to have fun and will let reason change his decision. He did not appear to like T’Challa unlike most other clans. If he does not want to listen to your foolishness he will shut you down.  M’Baku a tough guy with a very big heart and the audience is loving it.
  4. Okoye: The loyal and independent.                                                                                                                            Now this is a woman who will always stand her ground. Once she has decided on something she will not move even when her feelings are going in another direction. Her will power is a force greater than many soldiers. However, we can see that her commitment can cloud her judgement. Yet, in the end she will do what is best for her nation.
  5. W’Kabi: The hardhead.                                                                                                         Now this guy personally was not a favorite due to his position. He seems to have a good heart but his heart is easily changed when overcome with revenge. He is the most average of all the main characters. His people follow his lead with confidence showing great leadership. In the end, he will do what is best for his people yet can be swayed into the wrong path by charismatic people.
  6. Shuri: The cute and intelligent.                                                                                             27573792_248417955698309_7909158069148319744_nShe takes knowledge is power to a whole new level. She is not one for tradition and has no interest in it. She likes to keep things light-hearted but also understands when it is time to fight. She is not afraid to show others her work because she is not interested in glory. It’s nice to see someone so full of grace, brains, and love.
  7. Ramonda: The Prideful but Loving.                                                                                   Now many of you may wonder how the queen is a warrior. If you know the comics tumblr_ot07fvkY5h1uxae82o1_500then you know storm had relations with one of the black panthers. It is possible that the Queen may be a mutant. When they were on the run she was shown to have snow colored hair. It may be just a style choice or she could be storm. She deals with grief well with just losing her husband and her son. We also see that she does not scold her daughter for not wanting to take part in traditions which is a major role, being the princess. She lets her children be who they are instead of restricting them to certain roles being royalty. The king keeping secret from her just proves how much she cares which is why he kept it to himself. She is the one who acts proper to be a role model for others while not being afraid to take action herself.
  8. N’Jobu: The wise but irrational.                                                                                                 untitled-2.pngI would have loved to see more of the character however there was enough to understand how he felt. He wanted to make a change but was impatient. He did not understand what strength he had. Have you ever wanted to change something so bad that you were willing to do anything to make it happen? After seeing so many wrongs done to the people by society, he became like them and wanted to do things like his enemies would which affected what type of man he was. His choice caused the death of his own people. But his heart was in the right place. This is the person you know is smart but seems to make a lot of bad decision socially.
  9. Zuri: The Dependable.                                                                                                           This is probably one of the only people who do not have six pack in the movie. His heart is full of confidence and would not change his ways. He was the type to watch & listen. He also would give his life if it meant he could save another. This is the guy you could tell your secrets to and know they would be safe.
  10. T’Challa: The king.                                                                                                                  This is a man with a lot on his shoulders. He likes to make sure that his circle is always protected but does still worry about others. His point of view is set on a one way path but like M’Baku will change his ways due to the people around him. He is a good man that still needs guidance which he gets from the ones that he loves. He knows how to surround himself with good people which is a talent many do not have.black_panther_still_14I do not own any of these images.
