I am not American… But you probably already know that since I’m pretty sure I’ve started several posts with that same sentence. Anyway we don’t celebrate thanksgiving but it seems to me we shouldn’t need a holiday to say thanks and be grateful for what we have.
I am grateful for my wonderful family and friends, the wonderful horses that have come into my life over the years, my dog, the beautiful state I call home and the experiences I have had this year both good and bad.
I am extremely thankful for my blog and my wonderful readers, I wish you all a wonderful thanksgiving weekend and hope you spend it with good friends an family! 🍁🦃❤️🐴
Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers! Hope your all enjoying your thanksgiving weekend, I’m currently counting down the hours until the Gilmore girls a year in the life airs on Netflix inside with the AC on as it is finally starting to feel like winter is over in that it’s gone from cold to unbearably hot.
There now all my Gilmore girls fangirling is totally horse relevant. (Is fangirling one word or two?)
Anyway I’ve started a summer job at a riding school so I’ve been super busy. I still can’t believe I get paid to take trail rides and lead ponies around!
I have to say I am missing my main boy Patty, that’s the only downside to my new job which is 3 hours away.
This may be controversial and I don’t want to upset anyone who doesn’t agree with my assessment regarding this issue but I found myself feeling quite strongly about this issue and wanted write this mostly for me to get my feelings out.
Let me start by saying I’m not American, however we are an ally of the USA and their influence is such that the results of this election will have far reaching consequences world wide.
I wasn’t really following the election, but in the back of my mind I didn’t really think Trump would win, how could he? I admit to being ignorant on what political platform each candidate was running on and what they had promised but it seemed inconceivable to me that someone who said such horrible things about people of particular races, religion and sexes was fit to lead.
When I heard he will be president I was sad to be honest, sad for the future. Then I realised that while he does have considerable power now he has no power over me and the people like me. I honestly believe that there will always be people that will fight for what’s right.
I will never discriminate against someone who is of a different race or religion. I will never judge a religion based on the actions of a few. I believe that everyone regardless of race, religion, sex or country of origin should be treated with respect an kindness. I say no to hate, racism, sexism and religious descrimination.
I will not let the racist, sexist and outdated views of one dictate me. #spreadpositivityloveandrespect
