The Seemingly Separate Aspects Of Our Lives Tell One Story—Ideology, Metaphor, Advocacy & Biography

Because all things are connected, here is four-in-one post that involves ideology, metaphor, advocacy and biography.  Seemingly separate aspects of existence and of our lives are in fact all part of the same story. These connections are found in simple day-to-day observations about the world around us and are found in how we live our lives each day. The things we need to be creative and hopeful are all around us. With effort, these things are accessible to all of us.

Ideology —Because day-to-day acts and viewpoints require context.

We need government to protect citizens from hate crime attacks such as the recent one in New York City where a gay man was mauled by a gang of young people. We need government  to investigate these crimes when they take place and to punish the wrongdoers.

Metaphor—Because it is the shadow that sells the substance.

Like the ships in the Houston Ship Channel, we have the ability to stay the course even in polluted waters.

Advocacy—Because everyone is able to do their best to make a difference.

In this time of big money in politics, Linda Chavez-Thompson brings a real working person’s perspective to the race for Lt. Governor of Texas.  Please consider Ms. Chavez-Thompson in 2010.

Biography—Because understanding ourselves help us connect with the world.

I was born in 1967 in Worcester, Massachusetts. My parents met while working as reporters for the Worcester Telegram & Gazette.
