Today is a happy day. I figured out how to connect the dvd player and tv all on my own! Go me! I am so tickled with myself! I am smarter than the electronics! So I go to post about my achievement on facebook, in a self-depreciating kind of way, when I start scrolling, I see them. Those posts that drive me bonkers! You all know the ones I am talking. The ones you normally scroll through, and turn a blind eye to. The save this dog, and save these cats if you do not go to the pound and rescue them. The abortion ones that try to persuade you to one side or the other's cause. Today I wanted to read about people's lives, what is going on with my friends, share my major electronic accomplishment, and bam! There is this dog dominating my FB feed. Lennox. Who the fric is Lennox? Why do I care? I mean come on, my husband's sister's new husband is deployed, and I see a thousand posts about a dog I don't know? Come on, In my book soldiers come first, and I do not see anything regarding them dominating my feed everyday. It's just like religion, I do not want to be visually persuaded to join your side of the argument, or your cause. My beliefs are my beliefs, and I do NOT feel the need to persuade the world to jump on board with me, or jump on over to the side that is persuading! I have no need or desire to see an abortion post with a baby or more graphic post trying to persuade me to see things their way, whether I already do or not. It bothers me greatly. I do not want to start my morning with almost dead martyr dogs and dead babies! So in my personal protest of all things I would rather not see on Facebook, I am posting the kind of thing I would like to see more of! Sacrifice. For you, for me, for their country, and at a great personal cost. Thank you to the families supporting these brave soldiers! Thank you gentleman of the 8th ESB currently in Afghanistan. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice!
