So the 1000 year flood officially hits Middle TN and all we see on CNN.com is a smiling face of a failed terrorist? Their photo of the flooding showed …fields???? You have got to be kidding! To get a small slice of what happened in Nashville and the surrounding areas, check out
Having lived in 3 different parts of Middle TN, I would have never expected to see some of these areas under water. The only thing this site is missing is photos of the desperate people that need help. .. the ones that didn’t have flood insurance. Maybe pictures like that will start making it real to the rest of the country.
Our media outlets have been nothing short of disappointing. Over the last couple of years they have turned into something I do not recognize and something I think America should never represent! I hope that someday we will start to have real journalism again. In the meantime, I will continue to get my news from real people that aren’t solely motivated by money or political pull.
Here is a Facebook status that I reposted and I encourage all of you to as well: “hopes all non-Nashvillians will consider texting 90999 to REDCROSS to donate $10 to Nashville flood relief. These are our neighbors and friends, not someone on an island far away. Haiti got $21 million in a week, because they got the international news coverage -- we've got nothing but one another, and we're really hurting right now. Please repost!"

This blog is a collection of thoughts, articles and perspectives I have at any one time. While I am pretty consistent in my beliefs, life changes and evolves along with experiences. You may feel a connection with me through my writing yet I never want any of my readers to misunderstand that the connection you feel is with a perspective I have shared and not me as a person. I am continually humbled that I am able to connect with my readers, and I hope to continue to be able to for many years to come, but it doesn't make us connected in any way beyond this. If you connect with what I write and know me as an acquaintance, this in no way reflects that I have any knowledge of you, your situation in life or that I am writing with you in mind. It is merely that I have shared a human experience that most likely very many others have had has well. This also goes for anything I post on my Twitter account, Facebook Page and Facebook personal page. I wanted to make this disclaimer as clear as possible so you know that any misunderstanding you choose to have is not my responsibility.
