Restoring Freedom(A Poem on Saving America)

“Restoring Freedom”

 

It’s a new year in the “Free World”

Majestic clouds roll by

with a cool breeze off the water

I sit and ponder why

 

A world that looks so peaceful

could end up such a mess

we blink for just a moment

Enough I can not stress

 

Just what I think we’re headed for

Might never been the same

It’s much too late to worry now

Of fault and who’s to blame

 

It’s time for us to take a stand

Indeed we must make haste

For the price we paid for freedom

Is far too great to waste

 

Instead let’s look for answers

And leaders who are just

To help redeem our principles

Restore our nation, our trust

 

For all this pointing fingers

The lies, deceit and hate

And choosing to ignore the task

Could easily seal our fate

 

It’s time to bring together

Once great is now forlorn

With pride, hope and love

In the image she was born

 

So on this of all election years

I beg you, please reflect

And choose your part, no goal too small

Return our dignity and respect

 

I don’t believe we’ve lost her yet

Yet we must stop keeping score

Instead seek wisdom from our past

To learn there’s so much more

 

Bless all those who gave us strength

From generations past

To show their dreams were not in vain

And truly meant to last

 

I beg of you all to do your part to maintain our freedoms in this country.  I fear if we ever lose them, we may never see them again in our lifetime..

Simple to be Healthy (With Just a Bit of Homework)

2 Comments

 

It seems every time I start telling my friends about how I’ve changed my lifestyle and am now eating “organic/healthy”, all I ever hear back is “Oh, rabbit food!” It’s so sad how in this day & age so many American’s  and citizens worldwide alike, still don’t have  a clue about how simple it is to change your lifestyle which in turn could change and possibly save your life.

Folks, it’s all about getting back to basics. It’s about eating the food the way our ancestor’s did for hundreds of years, back in a time when there was virtually no disease compared to today’s world. The only disease back then came mostly from dissentary and lack of sewer and proper waste disposal and was rarely anything remotely close to the out of control statistics of today’s healthcare nightmare. Cancer was virtually unheard of as well as type II diabetes along with many of the other recently named diseases for which never existed just 100 short years ago.

The great thing about eating healthy “real food” (organically grown, non-Genetically Modified, non-chemically sprayed, sourced from animals or plants that have been fed nutritious plants from nutrient rich soil and raised in a humane way) is that it’s so easy and it tastes so good. Thanks to the recent rise in today’s consumer conscience regarding a healthier lifestyle including  better food & more exercise, it is now easier and more convenient to find companies who are popping up in every community from coast to coast, more retail shelf space and more farmers markets that are even showing up indoors in the northern climate in the winter time.

After quite a bit of research over the past several years and a major lifestyle change, I’ve found several great sources of true, wholesome and natural foods with everything from online buying clubs to healthy protein shake and beverages peddlers, including the more recent “green-fed” concept which is a step up from the more often heard term “grass-fed” which takes it a step beyond the typical organic.

It seems even the beer and wine section has been ramping up the organic and natural offerings as well and all this produce and spirits can be found in the typical average grocery store and no longer requires the searching out of a specialty store.

More recently in the news  stores like “Wholefoods” and “Trader Joe’s” (once known for their exclusivity of the healthy fare) have been making the news because it seems they’ve been a bit dishonest on how they are labeling their products regarding GMO’s (Genetically Modified foods). It seems the naturalist consumer is not too happy to find they have been consuming unhealthy products these vendors have been sneaking into their house brands along with the commercialization and recent buyouts of “mom and pop” health food storefronts, from what has become known as the corrupt “big food” industry. It seems after these buyouts, these devious big food companies have been sneaking ingredients into the products while disguising the dead food, dyes, chemicals and additives under new and clever names. I guess that just means we have to do our homework and stick together to spread the word.

Meanwhile you can check out some of these new and popular healthy offers online with a simple google search. I’ve also taken the liberty of listing a few of my favorites here to get you started. Good luck and check back with me soon, hopefully with reports of success once you’ve found out it’s really not that hard to find healthy, tasty products right at your fingertips,  often without ever having to leave the comfort of your own home.
