ON THE FOURTH OF JULY!


Family! Fireworks! Food! Holiday! Time off! Dad’s birthday! Red, White, and Blue! These are the things I will be thinking about on the fourth of July. Every year my family gets together to make this a time to remember and I know we will do the same this year. We see family we have not seen since last year and catch up on old times. We also talk about the loved ones that we have lost along the way. Paying a special tribute to them for a moment is something that is a must at family events. A tradition I hope will travel down to our children, and with that being said. Last but not least I want to wish my dad a Happy Birthday on July 4th!!

I hope everyone has the time of their life on this day and be safe. We often do not worry about the dynamics of having fireworks in our mist. We have to think about the safety of our loved ones and the people around us. So please be careful when you are celebrating the fourth of July this year. You can have a good time and keep safety in mind!

Let's Save Our Earth!

There are so many things that we can do to save our planet. If we all ban together the earth will last a lot longer than it is expected to last. If you do not know of any ways to save the planet I am going to list a few of them in this blog. The first thing you can do is change out your lights to fluorescent lights. This helps with pollution reduction. You can turn off your computer to save 40 watt hours a day. You save $14 a year by doing this.You save 40 gallons of water by not rinsing your dishes before putting them in the rinse cycle first. The last thing I am going to tell you you can do is recycle. At my place of employment they are big on recycling. They have containers for plastic, paper, and bottles. I think everyone should try this. It will help out the planet in the long run. Do you know of any ideas to save the planet. Please respond with ways for our readers to save the planet.

BET AWARDS 2011


Like or dislike? I found it to be both fun and a blast to the past. I enjoyed seeing Chris Brown's performance. He is really a showman when it comes to his art. I feel like he really puts a lot of thought and detail into each step that he makes. I give his performance an A+! The host of the show, Kevin Hart came out with a little dance team and they were great. He was almost as short as they were. I thought the skit that Nick, Nellie, Bobby, and Kevin performed made for great humor.

I thought it was a great idea to bring back some of our hits from the early days. I love the Five Heartbeats! I just thought they would have done more. I understand that they are not really the group but I would have loved to see them come out from under the shadows and performed more. All in all it was a great show and I am looking forward to next year's performance.

Stars! Stars! Stars!

What are we normal people to do?! I find it so insulting to the public when stars commit the same crimes as other people and get off with a slap on the hand. I think anyone who commits a crime should be subject to the same punishment as regular people. I see stars stories where they have been caught drinking and driving numerous times but because they are who they are a slap on the wrist is given. There have been stars using drugs and given a sentence but later just do a couple of hours in jail and are let go. There have even been stories where young celebs are dating people that are legally adults but it is okay and cute. People this is wrong. What are we saying to todays youth?! I can not believe society has gotten this bad. The only way a celeb pays for what they do is if they commit murder and I pray to God they think before they take someones life. This is wrong. Please do not follow in the bad steps of some of these celebs. Drinking and driving is wrong. Committing any harm to anyone else is wrong. We need more positive celebrities in our mist. We need ones that fight against the wrongs that could hurt themselves or anyone else. Think about this before you follow in the steps of the next bad boy or girl! Shine with a positive life and you will have positive future!

You Are Beautiful!


Todays teenagers have so much to deal with on a daily basis. They have to deal with peer pressure from friends and some adults. This does not effect all teenagers but the ones that have this burden on them do not know how special they are. You should not have to feel bad because of the way you look or dress. You do not have to let others pressure you into doing something bad. In my opinion, teens often feel the urge to fit in and do not think about what could happen if they make a misstep in life. We are put on this earth with so many different opinions, ideas, and personalities. This earth would be so boring if each of us were the same. I think if you are making a positive impact on your life and others then strive to be the best you can be. If you have any questions about the decisions you should make please seek the advice of the supervising adult in your life. Remember that we are all beautiful in our own way!

Just Home

Can our troops really get the chance to come home in 2012? We have lost so many people to this war that it is just plain heartbreaking. We have lost family and friends. I look back to when this all began and it hits a deep place in my heart. I can say that I do remember where I was on September 11, 2001. I was just coming home, ironic right? I had to attend my grandmothers funeral in Washington D.C. We pulled out on the 10th and got home on the 11th. As I walked into my mothers living room she was watching television. She said the twin towers have been hit. I could not believe this. I was in total shock! I left so many friends and family in DC. I felt the need to get in touch with them. I have family that works for the government and that are in the military, so I was terrified. Thank God they were all okay. Now I sit here ten years later and we are still at war. I pray every day that our troops come home. I still have family fighting for the rights of all that deserve and need it. So to Obama I say if you can bring our troops home, Thank You!!
We love and miss them!
