Poem Friday – What Ever You Do Don’t Let Texas Be Blue

I have not done a Poem Friday in some time but I needed something like what is going on in this Country to get me off my posteria and write, because I can. Its about ” Seeing something and saying something.”

 

The Great State Of Texas proudly blood Red

Economically wealthy and successful and the best is ahead

 

Proud of their President, their Flag and the American Flag to

Proud of their history, the heritage, there hospitality genuine and true

They love and show great respect for their vets and military men

For those who fought for USA they will always stand up and defend

I have always been so impressed when they take time to shake their hand and  personally comend

 

I know the wealth and beauty of this State is the envy of many 

The door should be open to those who share this pride not just any

 

Those from the States  and cities that are blue

Stay there, clean up their mess,  get your politicians to work as they should do

 

They appear to be unhappy, mean, and vicious it seems

It appears that they have lost their  spirit and their American Dreams

 

The blues cause unrest, bringing the ‘Reds’ down in their sights

This State is a great state with no need for anti establishment fights

 

It does not need the face covered Antifas, climate changers, destroying property into the nights

Freedom of speech as it should be  is a Texans right

 

Texas they have the right constitutionally to bear Arms

They need Guns to protect themselves, their land and their Farms

 

So Blues if you come to Texas to stay

You need to think about changing to red and live the Texan way

 

I am neither a Republican or Democrat in fact I  live in Australia that is true

I stay in Texas for the months that they allow and leave when due

But I have to say be careful  and “What ever you do don’t let Texas be Blue”

 

 

 

Go Vote for your President you need him and he needs you

Day 8 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Day 8 –  22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

It seems the video operator cut my head out of the picture, but thats ok you can see that its me. I guess the excitement of the Texans winning  the game against the Chicago team and a couple of bottles of ‘Prosecco’ his judgement was not very focused. Plus I did 24 pushups and not 22. 

The reason for 22 days and 22 pushups is the recognition and awareness of proven statistical evidence that there are at least 22 veterans commit suicide each day in the United States Of America and a growing number in Australia. There has been 274 suicides in Australia since 1999.

For most of us, we can not comprehend the trauma that they experience and how tolerant and supportive we must be for those who fight for our freedoms. It is not only tragic for our vets it is certainly heartbreaking for the families of these young men and women.
Today I nominate Tuff Adams nomad of SOLMC to take the challenge.

No pressure . If you can great, if not that’s ok too.
But once you accept, you start tomorrow. The rules are simple:
* Once you are nominated your 22 days starts the following day.
* Every day you record yourself doing 22 push ups, try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted push ups (from your knees) or you have to stop and take a break, that is fine but try and get them all done in one video.
* Every day the push-ups must be in a different location.
* Every day you just nominate a different person.
* And finally have fun with this!
This a great way to have fun and let these courageous Men and Women who put their life on the line and those suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) know that someone is thinking about them.
