Retired. Spent 20 plus years teaching lost all my retirement to my ex. Left teaching to work as a social worker for a few years. Working part time with autistic children. #CHANGE Published my first novel on Amazon - Reestablishing a Friendship: A Ghost Story. Now working on publishing poems. Then, a non fiction work on Taoist thought
I've been an English teacher; counselor; lots of life experiences; various other jobs and even Navy time. Three grown kids - all great and educated. I believe math and rules. I even believe I can argue language is in its lowest form binary. I read; I write; I like hiking, but haven't done many this summer. Currently spending a lot if time in the area.

Is it time to abolish the second amendment in the US constitution
Beowulfsfriend comments on Jun 16, 2020:
Before the 2nd amendment falls, the 1st will falter or go, along with the 22nd. Once they are gone a fascist regime with a militarized police force can remove the 2nd.

Maybe some of the poetry in Psalms, but all the genocide and such like murder and rape and incest and unbelievable stories just don't do it for me. Having taught literature, some of the psalms from the King James version do sound nice with that sweet language, but that is all I can agree upon.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Jun 3, 2020:
Many religions build much of their doctrine on forgiveness. Most if those are hypocrites who bring out forgiveness only when it suits them. Having worked in counseling, I recognize the difficulties in finding and then in expressing forgiveness. I am not sure I could do so in certain cases. I understand it can, sometimes, help the bereaved move on; but that remains a tough journey, and sometimes an impossible one. After the killing of some Amish girls in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania, aside from the killer's widow, only the Amish showed up. It is one of their staunchest tenants. I later spoke with an uncle of one of the dead girls. He did not attend; he said he could not find it in his heart to forgive and did not want to respond like a robotic follower of his faith and be a hypocrite.

Beowulfsfriend comments on Jun 2, 2020:
I don't like yes and no polls as they leave so much more worth saying, and, especially, DOING. Better to use the funds to build a more fair and equitable society. More jobs and better jobs and better education, along with less incarceration of those for miner crimes, etc. The other aspect is simple. Who all should be given reparations? Should all people descended from slaves, and shouldn't a number of nations be held responsible as well? How about the Indigenous peoples throughout the world - Europe has a lot to pay up for along with the current rulers. Then, what about taking it farther back. Should my family (on my father's side) pay the Irish for invading during the 1169 Norman-Anglo invasion, or should I collect from the British after my family assimilated prior to leaving during thev19th century? Just some thoughts. I favor a HUGE infusion of money and opportunity into the lower classes and a HUGE redistribution of wealth.

Cops do need to be held to a higher standard, just like other professions like doctors and therapists and teachers. As a teacher, I was expected to act a certain way. I would have anyway; and, I witnessed three cases of sexual abuses where I worked. I reported one - got yelled at, but the guy was fired, later arrested.
