POWER

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 9:39 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the foggy, sultry and always quaint island of Nantucket!  Great as always to be with you, hey David Muir of ABC News, quit using my line!, nine a.m. on a lazy Saturday morning, the sixth day of September, 2014.  Having already been up since five, it seems my day is already half over.  But sometimes that is what it takes to get those images of wildlife here on this little sand bar created 11,500 years ago by the Last Great Ice Age, so please remember to come on down, we will leave a LIGHT on for ya!

“Power is no blessing in itself, unless it is used to help the innocent… Jonathan Swift

This past Wednesday evening, around ten p.m. eastern, on that radical, marxist, ‘fornicators’ kind of hippy, tree huggin’ nonesense show… I saw something good for a change!  Pray thee knoweth of what station I speak of hence forth!  Pray tell again laddy what station but MSNBC! Where real journalist anchors like Rachel Maddow and Chris Hayes, Reverand Al Sharpton and Alex Wagner tell us all of them pesky FACTS–YEP!  You Betcha!   They always be ‘esplenin all kinds of bad stuff happening right here in the good ‘ole US of A, yammering on and on… Saying stuff like ” plutocrats buying elections” and “plutocrats keeping the poor man down, always be pullin’ the wool over the gullible masses collective eyes, eyes that never SEA the light of the TRUTH…  Yes, telling that TRUTH about what is really going on in our environment, our political landscape, our social policies, indeed the deterioration of our very democracy itself.  Usually, especially in light of the recent string of police brutality cases being brought forth in the U.S., cities from sea to shining sea, chickens coming home to roost if you will,the stories are quite depressing I must admit.  However, I was pleased to witness a good story for a change, that I thought I might share on this foggy Saturday morning, a little break from the FOX cartoons if you will.  It is the story of two men–who just happened to be Seattle police officers–and what their KINDNESS did for two little girls in that fair ‘Emerald City’…

On “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” (MSNBC–weeknights, save Friday, at 10 p.m. eastern) this past Wednesday evening, officers Ryan Gallagher and Jeremy Wade of the Seattle Police Department founded what is know today as “beds for kids” (to donate Google Seattle Police Foundation–“beds for kids”, thank you), a foundation dedicated to helping Seattle’s poorest of the poor buy beds for children sleeping on the floor with dirty blankets and little hope.  It seems these two good souls stumbled upon two little ones one night on a routine call, who were doing what I just described.  Having children of their own these guys could not turn a blind eye to the OBVIOUS NEED therein, thus beginning what will hopefully be a successful campaign to begin helping our most vulnerable right here at home.

Stop worrying so much about future threats when we have crisis-es that need our direct moral attention/action, lest we stop calling ourselves “the greatest nation on earth”.  What’s that?  Does that hurt the political ego of a tea party puppet?  TOUGH! Because talk is cheap, and it is the ACTION that counts “at the end of the day.” (if HBO’s “Real Time”, with Bill Maher had a new rule for September it should be this, “…every time a reporter, pundit, politician or lay person utters the aforementioned catch phrase at the end of their very boring summation of this or that, they have to put a buck in a jar, like the swear jar, and ‘at the end of the day’, a year from now, it will be full and go to pay for some new roads and bridges that are beginning to fall down, at least by the ‘end of the day’”).

So kudos to those two brave cops for actually showing what real POWER IS.  When you act with mercy and kindness, giving to those who need it the most, you are truly doing what a God would do.  Whatever that may mean to you.  Have a great week end folks!  PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
