Welcome to Take One of March’s Secret Subject Swaps. This week, 15 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts. Sit back, grab a cup, and check them all out. See you there:
My subject is “What would you like to see changed by the time you are a grandparent? ”. It was submitted by http://www.tinystepsmommy.com. Here goes:
I could try to make this funny and say something silly, but this is a subject that I feel would be best handled with honesty, as there are a few things I'd like to see changed, not really by the time I'm grandparent, but NOW. These are changes that I feel are vital to this country, to the people in it, and just to humanity in general.
I'd like to see all people that love each other be able to get married. I think it's silly that two, consenting adults that love each other can't marry because they might be the same gender. When did gender become the determining factor over spending your life with someone? I was always taught that you married for love. Not once was gender even mentioned. Why do WE, the people, or the government get to tell people who they can love or marry?
I'd like to see tolerance for ALL religions or lack there of. It makes me sad to see believers bash non-believers and vice versa. Religion is a choice that we are all free to make for ourselves. People shouldn't be bashed because they picked one belief or none belief over the other. In my opinion, there is NO right or wrong religion or belief. If you are at peace with yourself and the way you live your life, then that's all that matters.
I'd like to see less bullying and more acceptance of those that are different than we are. It makes me sad that people, not just kids, but adults alike, can sit there and belittle someone or make them feel worthless because of how they look or if there is a deformity, or if they are just a little different. WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT! If we weren't, this place would be boring as ever. Our differences are one thing that makes this world go 'round. As parents, we need to teach our kids that people are different and there is nothing wrong with that. But a lot of parents don't....because THEY are bullying as well. KNOCK IT OFF!
This would would be a much better place if people would just be nice. It's really THAT easy. Just be nice. Remember the golden rule....treat others the way you want to be treated. If more people remember that, it would make a world of difference.
But one thing to remember....by the time I'm a grandparent.....these changes start with us...here at home. Raise a nicer generation and we might just be able to reach the stars!
