Words From a Long Time Ago…or Yesterday…

Randy’s finally at peace! At least I hope he is. Ashes to ashes….dust to dust! That’s what is said. In this case dust to water. As I scattered his ashes in the ocean he seemed to swirl around me like a whirlpool for a short time as if to say something. I don’t normally spout ominous meanings and maybe it was just something I wanted to see….but for my needs, my hopes, my grief, I need to think he was swirling around. Love ya Rand man. Rest in peace.

Love Dad

What America needs

Although we live in the greatest society in the world, still there is much that if not changed, can and will  move us backward and away from where most of us really hope and expect to go. To start the fix and to start to move forward it is important that we focus on the long term. To that end we need two things; one to accept health care as a right for every citizen and employ  a national health care system as has been done by every other developed nation. Of course we’ll do it better.  Secondly we need to immediately install term limits to stop the disastrous mechanism already in place by which the primary goal of an elected official is  to be re-elected.
