God, am I popular! I had 60 spams for online dating. Did the idiots really think I’d open any of them?
Today is the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. The march was led by Martin L. King, Jr. and over 250,000 people attended. On August 28, 1963, Dr. King stated: Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. I can truly say, this man had a very forgiving heart considering all the things that happened during the Klu Klux Klan era in the South. He was willing to forgive all those people who hated him because of his color.
Well, I must honestly say, this is hard for me to do. I’m sure that my life has not been as difficulty as Dr. King’s, but my heart is not as forgiving.
I drink a lot from the cup of bitterness. I really don’t want to drink from it, but it’s hard not to when I have such miserable people making my life a living hell every day. I guess I don’t have the forgiving spirit Dr. King had. I’m very flawed when it comes to forgiving. I wasn’t always this way, but I’ve learned bitterness from the evil that entered my life five years ago. In some ways, Dr. King was luckier than I. He had a lot of friends who stood by him, and I’m sure that made his life bearable. I, however, have no one I can turn to. No matter who I try to befriend, it turns out bad. The only thing I have left is hate and bitterness toward those who want to destroy me.
I wish Dr. King was still around, maybe we’d have someone who’d listen to us. Someone who’d stand up for us targets. There are no Dr. kings today. Just a lot of psychos who care only about becoming famous.
So, I don’t want to drink from the cup of bitterness, but it helps when I have nothing else.
I have a dream, too. That some day the targeting that is happening to us targets ends.
And I hope that Best Buy goes out of business soon. Best Buy doesn’t deserve to be in business with all the cheating it does to its customers.
