a new day
a new week to make
your voice be heard
to dance in the streets
to sit it out.
I have listened, laughed, cried,
been downright outraged
“I am continually amazed at the buoyancy of the human spirit”.
Many many many
have asked since the writing of these blogs
for a voice to go with my thoughts.
Many have asked others here
“what does her voice sound like?”
I have finally been drug up the mountain to the world
answered your questions!
I sure hope you enjoy what is to become a daily
DrSherry Keeping It Real!
The number of “clicks” to view it
will probably determine how long I will do this,
or shall I say the number
many have asked
now the ask need be no more.
Hope you enjoy
what is the first of many
thoughts and musings
“Keeping it Real”
you tube style!
and save it to your favs’.
From the Towers we see The Trump
and the t.v. realities that just seem so short of reality in so many ways.
We can opt for
The Amazing Race
and wonder just how in the world those people do all of that!
we can find something not so real
We see people that I can hardly recognize
yet they are doing their best to win
The Donald’s challenges
for charity or organizations they believe in if the Celebrity Apprentice is watched,
are astounded at some of the things they do on that show or say.
I rather like to be entertained when watching the t.v.
Humanity at its best
in the worst of times
witnessed over the news
with all that has been devastated in our country
with the Tornadoes and now sift through rubble.
People are finding their way to those that need them, those that need hands, arms, and bodies.
we are reminded that we are all connected
by the many who are responding
in all the ways they are able
at a time of crisis.
I cannot imagine the pain, the devastation
of sifting or walking through what moments before was my home, my life, my treasures
now exposed for the world to see
wonder how …
The prayers and the prayer bowl are full
prayers are going UP
We have witnessed horror
in the news, on the air,
on the sides of buses
in those who exercise their rights of
We’ve also seen an outcry
those who have said,
“enough is more than enough”.
We are seeing the efforts of many ordinary citizens; men and women, teenagers
and demanding that
one man be taken off the air
for his crude, insensitive and reprehensible
We’re seeing sponsors, and those who advertise on the Rush show
now “backing out”
taking emails and phone calls seriously.
Those like Proflowers, and a few others
will see that supporting your
local business and mom/pop operations
will in fact boost the economy
the service will probably be better as well.
The heat is on
where those folks live.
It lives in their pockets
many are now saying
the wonderment of the day,
is spirits of gypsies and thieves
those who embrace this as a time
ACT not react
not to sit.
Anyone who values women;
has a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister,
is now realizing that
women are powerful, they vote, they will not tolerate any longer being treated in ways that are less than what they deserve.
we deserve all the rights and privledges
choices that men make and enjoy
“We The People”
And the people are talking.
Yesterday’s blog has a list and so many comments from readers.
It also has a wealth of resources of ways and numbers that YOU can get involved with
to add your message
to those that are being spoken.
I encourage you to speak
so that theives
will not steal your spirit
the really grand news of this weekend
Godson Kamryn and his team
in Radford VA
played some wicked basketball
with him averaging 13 points a game,
after 3 games of the AAU
2nd place in the championships!
Way to go Lakers in Radford,
Seems the effects of 3 games in a row
on those who are 10 years old
takes a smile
even when they are
crowned as winners!

Kamryn and his best pal JW bottom left.
Oh those are some tired lookin champs!
So here we are
in the beginning of a new week,
a time of newness all around.
From devastation will be re-building,
from strangers will become friends of a lifetime.
From ignorance will grow empowerment
From this moment
have the choice
sit it out.
I hope you dance.
To those in Sundays prayer bowl,
YOU were being held up.. and always are.
Walk in Beauty
keepin it real
or to purchase
I appreciate each of you.
