Shame On Facebook

I can’t believe my ears. A group on Facebook that bashes parents kids. Can you believe it? People get on there and make fun of disabled kids, pre-mature babies, fat kids, or ugly kids.

facebook

In the first place babies are beautiful, not ugly. Disabled children are helpless and can’t fend for themselves.

What is wrong with Facebook? Why would they allow such terrible pages to be allowed? Are there no guidelines? Are adults so ignorant, yes I am using the word ignorant when a person thinks it is alright to say such terrible things, and from what the report says, respondents were answering with laughter, thinking this is funny.

This is a hard, cold and sometimes cruel world we live in today. It is hard to make friends, it is hard for young people to fit in. At that age kids need to know they are loved. What kind of adults will these children turn out to be?

All I can say is I am thankful I don’t know anyone personally who acts in this rude and crude way. They definitely would not be a friend or even casual acquaintance of mine.

Facebook, shame on you. I don’t have the link, I wanted nothing to do with it and wasn’t going to waste my time finding it.

Well I am done and it has taken my mind off of today’s problems. Thanks for reading friends.

anniversary-1x

Today WordPress let me know that I have been with their company for one year. I didn’t actually make my first post until March 6th I believe, I was scared.

In one year I have made more friends than I ever dreamed I could. I have read wonderful and funny and sad stories. I have spoken to a few of my friends over the phone. I have sent and received gifts from bloggers.

One of the biggest days I will forever remember is the days before my brother’s birthday. I sent out an open invitation for you to send him a birthday card or well wishes. You did more than I even thought. Cards, and gifts, phone calls and even writing messages on the Facebook page I made him. I still have that page by the way and his birthday will be coming up in May so I will probably ask for your help once again.

He and I are only one year and a couple of weeks different in ages. His birthday is May 3 and mine is April 21.

I have been so blessed by all of you. I don’t know how I made it before coming to blogging world. It has helped me heal, see things in a different light. I have had helpful advice. Instead of googling something first off, I usually come here for advice first. You have laughed with me and cried and listened to my whining. You have lifted me from sorrow and helped me to cling to my faith.

In this one year I have these stats.

77,888 views

I know that you already know that I have over 1000 likes now.

24,035 comments

My best day of views was 651

I am now on Twitter; tweetme1954

Facebook ;https://www.facebook.com/terry.shepherd1

All these wonderful places to share my stories at is awesome!

Well I better get off of here and think about supper. Thank-you all for sticking with me through my thick and thins……….

Blog of The Year Award!


Ivonne honored me with this wonderful award!

http://ivonnemontijo.wordpress.com

Ivonne is a wonderful woman with a heart of gold! Here is who she is, but make sure to go check out her blog for yourself!!!

Who am I? Hmnn….that is a question that I am always asking myself and that is always evolving and changing.

I have been a professional actress since the age of 17.

I have been clowning around and doing children’s entertainment since the age of 19, my “day job” so to speak.

I am currently getting receieved my M.A. degree in religious studies from CSULB in May 2011.

I decided that at the age of 50 I would start learning how to play the piano and guitar.

My passions are sex-religion-chocolate-the arts- travel and my dog Missy.  And now we will add music to that list.  Actually music should have always been there as I am a dancer and a dancer must have music.

This blog is where you will find pieces of my soul, my heart, my mind and hopefully my humor……

Blog of the Year Award


I can not do what I have done in the past in following the rules for this award, but nor can I pretend not to be excited, for receiving this award from Bird.

Bird was the first one to read my blog this past March when I began to write. She was the first reader, the first comment, she gave me my first award, and although she is going through some drama, she always remains a follower to me yet today.

Why don’t you go over to her page and get to know her. You won’t regret it. You can find her at,http://birdmartin.wordpress.com/2012/11/26/blog-of-the-year-2012/#comment-10474

Bird, I want to take this moment to thank you for giving me confidence, to help me stand strong, and to remind me to lean on no one but God when days are filled with sadness. I love ya Bird!!!!!!
