Confusion

Not sure why I used this heading but I’m sure I was trying to move an article from Facebook and had no luck with it. Why are these things so tricky for me to do? For the younger generation it’s probably easy but for me, who once worked with regular typewriters and simple adding machines — whatever that is out there now is totally different and it requires lots of time to learn.

I’m not complaining, just stating a fact and my friend just told me yesterday that it is probably the first time in our lifetime that it’s the younger people who are helping us instead of the reverse. What do you think about that?

Today everyone uses a computer and no one has to bother with memorizing anything. If they need an answer, all they have to do is go on the web–

While all this is amazing, what happens with that is that once you zero in on something that you wanted to know, the information highway takes you on another route and there you are, in another area where you had no idea you wandered into. All I can say that it’s all fascinating and then you realize that you have spent hours on this one topic and more engrossed with what you learned then getting back to writing, which you should be doing in the first place.

Being Chinese

Deviated Septum — how many of you have ever heard of this? This particular operation is frightening and my Grandson just had this procedure done–

I have heard many frightening stories about this delicate nasal surgery that I just pray that his doctor did it right. Just one slip of the knife and he would have to do it again.

Being Chinese

Why should I be surprised at how people behave? All you have to do is look at what is happening politically — You can turn Television on and see all the nasty fighting within the two parties. Whatever the issues are, families fight over who to believe and who they think is right or wrong and then try to convince others to think the same way. This is absurd! How can Americans think for one minute that there can be peace among nations with different culture and beliefs when families who love each other can’t even get along?

Being Chinese

I just read on Facebook that some teenagers beat a Chinese man to death with a baseball bat — why is this still happening? It reminds me of the Vincent Chin killing in Detroit decades ago. Why is there so much hatred out there? I know that we are not born with it, that’s for sure! Seems as we advance further in technology and lifestyles it just gets worse. No one wants to respect others, learn to get along and I believe this should be taught at home but parents are not doing their jobs. Instead they continue to have kids and forget about teaching them family values and what’s right and what’s wrong?

human trafficking

With so many people coming through the border so freely and easily, it makes one wonder why this is happening now? I remember a time when someone had to wait and come in legally and that meant being patient, waiting your turn and filling in all necessary papers. And that was when someone got married – yes, even after marriage I believe there is even a long waiting period before immigration lets you in. Now all you have to do is be a child, can come into America and later your mother can join you. That’s another thing I can’t understand. How can you let your child travel without you? Being a mother and grandmother, there is no way I would send my precious children to another country by themselves. I don’t care what the conditions are, either we go with them or they need to stay.

So you believe you did the right thing by protecting your child and sending him off to America with the hopes of being free? In the meantime who is watching your child, protecting them from predators who are just waiting in the sidelines for something like this? How can you trust any strangers out there?
