Thinking Out Loud

Sips of Stillness

***Trigger warning*** I’m talking about rape again.  I don’t get too detailed, but do practice self-care, if you need to.


That said …I have some thoughts on recent events.  I started a few different posts a few different times.  But like I said, it’s a hard subject and sometimes the words don’t come easily.

Here’s the background, as I understand it, on the case where a student athlete from Stanford was convicted of raping a woman and handed a 6 month jail sentence by the judge.  The first thing I read on this was, the victim’s letter to her rapist.  What an incredibly strong woman to express her thoughts and anger and hurt so openly – to the court and then to all of us.  After that, I read the convicted rapist’s father’s plea to the judge and more.  I’ve got comments.  Lots of them.

About Kenneth T.

My blog, My way Welcome to a little piece of my life. Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings. For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life. Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~ You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-) *** And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse. There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.
