What a powerful message.
I first saw it on Pinterest,
the image showed it spray painted on a shed,
and it made me involuntarily gasp.
It gives one a moment of reflection.
I am a truthful person, but I do not always speak my mind.
I am usually non confrontational,
unless you mess with my family,
then the momma bear in me comes out.
Unless I am asked straight out for my opinion, I usually
keep quiet. I get it from my parents, if you asked my mom or dad for their
opinion on something they would share it with you, but they did
not try to impose it on you.
I am of the thought that if something will upset someone
and not bring a positive change than my words will have
created more harm than good.
I will tell you that there is toilet paper hanging from your shoe,
or that you have spinach in your teeth.
Or even share with you the things I am learning about the
safety of our food, if you are questioning me about
being a vegan.
I will not tell you how to raise your children or
how you should live your life, or even what you should stand for.
I reserved all of that for my own kids,
they know where I stand on all of the important things in life.
How strongly I feel about the unfairness of discrimination, or inequality,
our children's education and their safety, the preservation of our planet,
the food we put in our mouths and who is governing the ingredients allowed in said food.
These make great dinner conversations I assure you!
These are the things that I could get on a soapbox about.
I am not getting on a soapbox here, I promise,
I really didn't even plan on this being what this post was about.
I was just going to show you the new bracelet that I made
with a collaged soldered pendant and some beading.
but that message is hard to ignore.
and the girls face is pleading with me not to ignore the message.
Thank you Land of Nod Studios for the beautiful altered image!
The fact of the matter is that when I do get worked up about something...
my voice shakes.
Thanks for stopping by,
stay tuned for the regularly scheduled pretty post...
