That Thing Which Screams A Whisper: Drug Addiction in America (Article) - 3/23/2007 3:40:27 PM|
This is an excellent article, Jeanne. I hope you're approaching newspapers, mags, and various organizations both online and off.
As I mentioned to you a while back ... you have so much to offer ... to bring, to explain, to speak of and from. Again, very powerful and educational. Jerelyn

Carefree, uncaring, careless...feelings we don't need to embrace forever.

To be cherished with love and commitment and dedication is akin to holiness, itself. To be betrayed by one who pledged their love and life to you is the worst kind of deceit and injury imaginable.
Jeanne, have your dear friend and sister, Adrea Michelle, visit my den and read my article Love and my poems Kiss and A Lovely Rose. In all her hurt, perhaps she will understand that there are men of quality in this life.
Judge the measure of respect and love and tenderness a man shows to his mother. If he falls short by this scale, nothing else matters. Move on.
I feel the pain of dear Andrea and of you, Jeanne, for you would never have been moved to write such a heartfelt poem unless you, too, suffer.
Bless you both,

Is it apathy that keeps us from being an involved, active citizen?
Is it apathy that lets us ignore our loved ones in lonely homes for the elderly?
Yes, Jeanne, apathy is an evil-doer. We sit unfeeling, unmoved and uncaring while the needs of others cry out to us: Our children, who want only to be loved and valued. Our ignored husband or wife, who wants only to be recognized and appreciated. Our children's teachers,
who want only for us to not ignore them but to join them in their effort to educate our children, to help prepare them for the challenges of life ahead.
The first rule of philosophy: "A thing cannot be and not be."
Either we do it or we don't. But to be apathetic is such a waste.
Many of us need to get off our butts and give apathy the boot!
Thank you for raising the ugly head of apathy, Kate. Now all we have to do is live the life that God gave us. "Later" is a word we should consider banning.
Okay. I'll think about it. We can talk about that later.

An interesting viewpoint, and a comparison of how the comparison of two ideologies can be without concern for feeling....
nice work on this poetic expression of this thought...

Your verses stand as a respectful and powerful tribute to your friend and sister, Jeanne. Thank you for sharing it. Love and peace to you,

I am not sure that I would say that "ennui" (which in French means "boredom") is equal to apathy; and yet, I think I can "see" what you're getting at. Certainly you provoked my thinking with your verses, Jeanne. Thank you. Welcome to AD. Love and peace to you,

Happens round the other way too, but it is a sad state of affairs when peeps bust up their marriage vows..."Till Divorce do us part"..
Conveys the throw away society
