I have shared that during my childhood I became withdrawn with my family, not sharing feelings, interest, dislikes, all the questions, experiences of life lived. So I learned and created my own form of communication. I am not saying that I have come full circle but I have been presented with situations to improve my voice. I still struggle here and there but It is nice to know that I’m not the only struggling communicator! Communication has its place depending on its setting, dealing with family, relationships, friendships, children,businesses or business relations. It is as if we were all writers and every ten years, or before, we write our story, communicating what we have processed(changed, eliminated, added, learned) we write about new adventures or becoming more sedentary. Life is fleeting and things can change in seconds, minutes, hours, weeks, months or years. Every individual has his or her own story, internal beauty, and when words are spoken or written on a page, they are meant to be understood, or shared. If the message is not clear, then get clarification, every story has its own identity and individual importance. People want to be heard, they want their thoughts, convictions to translate what is in their heart and mind.
Watched the House of Saddam on HBO George H.W. Bush use to be head director of the CIA from 1976-1977, was President of The United States from 1989-1993. Many People in power had vested interest in Iraqs oil and Saddam Hussein was a smart cat, he knew the greed he was up against,and the US CIA infiltration scandal in his country, so he was not backing down, he was going to defend his countries resources and his people’s Iraq.
- Donald Rumsfeld, shook Saddam Hussein’s Hand in 1983
- Gulf War, 1990-1991
These companies have coincidental ties, just read how the wars create and make money for CEOs, Investors, politicians. Martha Stewart was sent to jail for ]insider trading what about Big Companies, Investors, politicians with the wagers and trading on congressional knowledge on the war.
Valentines Day, Do you think that these days are calendered, singled out as reminders for the globe to love one another? Through our journey in life we always need reminders to check ourselves, (introspection) if we are loving , respecting the people and the world around us. For Valentines, I wonder how much , chocolate , jewelry, flowers are bought on this day or days leading up to Valentines Day. I hope everyone feels loved today and everyday, and if you have no one, always remember, you still have yourself!
I think people forget the who,what, when,where and why, and how in five W’s and one H (how)are usually present or provided. Maybe not every time but in the transferring of information from one entity to the other, you should always walk away clear of the message. (whether via person, negotiations,instructions,stories, articles) Why do people become so self righteous in thinking that they, themselves have great communication skills? Self examination people, check yourself, and if your message is not clear, make it clear!
This is not being sexist, it is a fact,(we are grilled about the differences between men and women) that men are notoriously known for being short and to the point, but yet they always complain about the women in their lives about how they complain or are always nagging (bitching). I can not tell you how many women are up to there eyeballs with creative word choices to get resolution. Well the challenge is on men, if you see through all the words and repetitiveness, shouldn’t you step up to the plate and problem solve the communication gap or dilemma? It astounds me how men do not tune in to repetitiveness, (things repeat themselves for a reason), because the issues have not been effectively communicated and resolved. I am a woman whose time is important and my words, opinions, thoughts, carry weight just like my counterpart ( my fellow gentlemen) I have learned through mistakes growing up that I want to be crystal clear about the messages I relay to whatever business, person, loved one, that I come in contact with.
So men and women, give me your honest input!
After I was born in Spain my dad, mother and I did a tour in Japan. What does that say for my mom, a native Spanish woman traveling and living in Japan. Too bad that I was little, I would have loved to have had that experience. I did grade (k-2) in Spain then (3-5) in Sigonella, Sicily. We lived in a town called Nicolosi , (Google map/earth) it was maybe an hour from Mount Etna. The Villa we lived in was gated, it was two story but we resided on the top floor it had a huge stair case that led to the top layer of the upper house, it had a huge upstairs balcony,the bottom house was not occupied. The bottom floor (yard) was tiled mainly, the back of the house had a maze walkway with a well, some fruit trees, it was just fun and dreamy. I use to roller skate on it. I remember the pasta and pizza, I loved the pasta, pizza and the natural sparkling water.
Then my family and I moved to Pensacola, Florida. The US is very wide and spread open, in Europe roads are smaller, walking was very common in Europe, however in the States you need a vehicle 80% of the time to go places. I vaguely remember this time period, but I have moments, like when we were in New Orleans and I had grits for the first time. I remember the American television being different from Spain, more channels and lots of funny shows. There seem to be some awareness of the differences in geography, America is very spread out wide roads, a lot of places are driving distance.
I have mixed feelings about The United States Military. I would love to hear other peoples views on the military. My father was a service man, my brother in-law is an active Military Navy Service man. I Love and appreciate that we have men and women who defend the US, and most of the time, keep the peace around the world, but it always seems that the military is located in places of interest. There are many Embargoes that we have in place with certain countries. However, the Military is one of our biggest polluters of the world!
What about the EPA in all of this? Besides the polluting, I wholeheartedly believe our service men and women are duped by their own government, well we all are, not really knowing the real reason they are at war, or the assignments they are on. I remember when a service man addressed the former Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld about their trucks not being fully armored and faulty.
Walter Reed was a hot topic not up to Building code, not providing treatment to our recently wounded or our Veterans of past wars.
I sure hope the conditions at Walter Reed have improved. What kind of collection of people (government) do that to their own! I say let all our Government personnel suit up and go fight our wars!

China has a block , a fire wall called the (Golden Shield Project) to the world wide web. Do we want our Civil Liberties, taken away from us,? Each year something is taken away from us, however, I want to keep my internet, Thank You! I will continue to share and bring to light the threats to all human freedom!
Julian Assange, was also referred to as the “founder of Wikileaks” . It’s interest is in exposing oppressive regimes in Asia, the former Soviet , Africa and the Middle East, but they expect to be of assistance to people of all regions who wish to reveal unethical behavior in their governments and corporations.
