I know that it has been a while since I talked to you, I know that you may be mad at me for neglecting you, and I truly am sorry for ignoring you for so long. I want to let you know that even though I did not communicate with you, I did not forget about you. During this time I thought about you numerous times, every time I saw some thing or some one fascinating and every time I had an interesting thought. I continued to make mental notes to tell you things, but some how it never happened. I want to update you now on some things that went on while I was not connecting with you, these are the times that I thought about you.
I finally stood up and voted in the presidential election for the first time in my life. It was a liberating and proud experience and I wanted to share it with you.
This country elected a Black President! I was overwhelmed with emotions and was ecstatic to be a part of something big and spectacular. I knew that this election and this year will go in history books that children will study in years to come. I wished that the people of a hundred years ago could see where their country and where their people are now, they would be proud. I wished that the people who fought so long and so hard for equal rights could see how things look today, they would be proud.
During Christmas our program received hundreds of brand new donated toys from caring citizens to be given to the less fortunate children whom we work with. I thought that this was amazing and very heart warming to see during the time that this country is going through a recession. I wanted to tell you about it.
One day I was killing time walking around and going into stores and I stumbled upon the oddest place. It was a big room filled with chairs facing small screens. There were teenage kids sitting on each chair with headphones on and controls in hand. The room only held the sound of clicking and every one was staring into the screen not talking or communicating in any form with one another. I was going to come home and tell you all about what technology has done to us and our kids and how I can see our machine ruled and no human contact future.
This was a quick overview of what I would have written about more extensively if I was keeping up with you. There were other topics that I wanted to share with you as well such as the bail outs, the economy, having kids and new discoveries I have had about myself, but it did not happen and I have moved on now. I do not know why I neglected you for so long, but I am returning now and ready to pour it all out once again. So get ready because I am back with more passion, more fire and more curse words baby!
