So I saw this picture (yes, I know it was a joke) that said adult diapers are called depends because how people feel about adults in diapers depends on the will on my father’s FB page. I raged a bit. I honestly couldn’t care less about a will.
We have one life to live here on this planet. Regardless of what you believe happens after you die, you have here and now to give to the world and those that you love. When our days here are done the money and the things will not matter, not one bit. I do not come from money. I have precious few things from my family that is gone. And I would happily give those things back to have one more day. If I could sit in the garage one more day with my grandfather, if I could play one more game of Scrabble with my grandmother, if I could sit and learn more about knitting from her, or build something with my grandfather…I’d give away far more than I ever got after they died. When my mother dies, it won’t be her things I will want. My son lives very far away and I miss him terribly, and it’s not because he’s not here to wash dishes and take out the trash. But we build relationships instead of wealth.
Maybe you can have both, but that’s not my experience. You can either chase money and material wealth or you can invest in people. If you sacrifice your time with the people you love to get more, you teach them that it’s the stuff that matters. If you put people above stuff you teach them that people are what matters.
My father? I won’t even be allowed to attend his funeral. I may not even know if he’s sick, hurt, or dies. That’s just how it is. And swear on all that is good and pure in this world, after all of the stuff that is, if he leaves me stuff in his will I will give it away. After being denied the chance to be his daughter if he throws some meaningless trinkets at me in death…
My mother? She will work and give until she literally can’t anymore. It’s who she is. She gives to me, my children, family members, and strangers. When she needs me, I will drop everything, everything except my kids because they will probably be there too, to take care of her. She won’t need a retirement fund because I will be there to take care of her. I am her daughter, she is my mother, not just biologically. She is worth more to me than all the money in the world.
How people feel about you doesn’t depend on a will, it depends on how you treat them.
Ok, that mighta got away from me a bit, but I feel better.
I had to click the
Darren Hunt of Utah
The murder of young Black Men by police continues.
oh for fucks SAKE
Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…
He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.
and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…
Exactly! This is evil.
Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen
Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.
This dude was cosplaying.
He was dressed up in a costume.
Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?
Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back
Jesus Christ, American law enforcement. Get your fucking shit together.
