Be Kind. Don’t Share that Post.

Please. For the sake of those you love and care about who get triggered by violence, do not share videos of brutal violence and death.

Tyler Perry’s “Work Ethic”

I typically do not write about very many socially current events, just because of the nature of social media and sometimes people cannot have a healthy discussion about something without slander, name-calling and mud-slinging and I truly do not have the time of patience for all that, lol.
