How To Be Mature

How to be mature

I’m afraid I have reached the point in my life where writing a post on how to be mature is necessary.

I’ve seen the signs. The creative muses have cried out to me.

No, they’ve said, don’t write one more joke until you’ve spread this message of maturity. The world needs your help, Rebekah.

So here I am.

Replying To Comments On: “Calling Him Caitlyn”

Replying to comments on Calling Him Caitlyn by Rebekah Koontz

On June 5th, I wrote Calling Him Caitlyn.

I knew I was going against the general consensus. That is what prompted me to write it. My dad has described it as me saying the Emperor isn’t wearing any clothes.

But I want to talk about the comments that were posted in reply.

Memorial Day — Not A Normal Post

Memorial Day-- Not a normal post

I’m not going to write a normal post today.

I can’t.

It’s Memorial Day. A day that should be spent with your families, not reading blog posts online.

Memorial Day, for Americans, is a special day, dedicated to those who have given their lives, serving this country. It’s a day to be revered and respected.

Have a moment of silence for those who have passed. Take the time to walk up to veterans and soldiers and thank them for their services.

I learned a lot about the military, being a Sea Cadet. And this is important.

We’re lucky to have the freedom we have. We should be grateful and respectful.

Thank you to those who give of their lives, serving and protecting this country. Thank you for the sacrifices you make every day.

If you’ve lost a loved one, I want to thank you, too. Honestly. I have the highest regard for you. You were a┬ápart of someone’s life who was special, committed, and a fighter.

Thank you, all.

And please, for the rest of us, even though this will be a day spent with families and barbecue (which is all great!), please don’t forget the real reason of Memorial Day.

Remember, respect, and be thankful.
