Hatred in America

Things like this make me sick, literally sick. I cannot stand people who behave in this manner. How could you possibly scream these types of things at children?! How could you hate someone you’ve never met based on things you’ve heard from others? I don’t understand it. I don’t think that I ever will. These “Tea Party”ers (the crazy ones like in the video, not all of them) piss me off, especially the woman. Really, you’re going to be like Yaayy my son kills people like you? You’re going to rejoice in the death of innocent people? You should be ashamed. You feel that those people you are so viciously protesting against are murderers, when I can tell you 99% of them wouldn’t hurt a fly. You must be insane. And at least she admits that. She is crazy, and the people who are shouting with her are crazy. Don’t use this country as a crutch for your hatred, that’s not what America is about whatsoever. Our basic rights say that everyone is created equally, and that we have the ┬áright to freedom of religion. But to them, it’s only for those that they choose. Those people were not hurting anyone, ANYONE, they were trying to help people, but people who seek to strike them down are only pulling our country farther back into the past. I hope beyond hope that eventually things like this are rare, but for now all I can do is stand up for others who are condemned pointlessly and hope that maybe I get through to at least a few people.

Sit and Wonder

A British nurse in 2006.

I am sitting here, finishing up my studying for my Anatomy Lab midterm and I wonder how I will feel about my future job once I actually begin it. I have no idea if I am able to handle the stresses of being a nurse. I don’t know how I will cope. I believe that I can cope, I think that I can work through my problems and feelings. I view it all as a challenge, something for me to conquer, something that I want to do in order to be happy and have a good life. But what is a good life? I want to be a mother eventually too and I would love to be a stay at home mom but right now I don’t see that happening, ever, and that makes me kind of sad. I worry I won’t enjoy my job, but then, why does it matter? If I don’t like it, I could just get another degree or get some type of desk job in Health Care with the degree I’m going to get. If being a nurse doesn’t work out, I’ve realized that’s okay. It doesn’t make me a failure, it just makes me different. It just means that nursing is not the job for me, but there’s a million other types of jobs out there. If it doesn’t work out, I’m confident I will find something I love. I think, though, that I will love nursing, I know it will be difficult, but it’ll be just as rewarding as it is difficult.
