Right to Remain Silent #SecretSubjectSwap

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 8 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 

My “Secret Subject” is:
The proverbial good girl from next door who was a girl scouts leader and worked for the municipal administration. (INSERT NAME) was arrested by police last night. What happened?

It was submitted by: (Thank you, T!)

What?! You did not hear what happened to Marlee?! Well, let me fill you in... So, she heard that there was a huge crowd of people outside of the Immigration office, and they were protesting against the horrible treatment of the detained children. So, of course she went over there and joined in. She understands that this country was founded by immigrants, and that our ancestors, for most of us, were immigrants. She understands that the children and adults being detained are human beings, and deserve to be treated with respect and dignity. She understands that these people are fleeing from conditions, we have never experienced ourselves. She understand they are seeking safety and the opportunity to have a good life. She understands that they are desperate, need help, and don't know what else to do. She understands that the majority of them are wonderful people, who would help to make our country better. She understands compassion and empathy. She understands that this situation needs to be handled much better. She understand love and kindness and gratefulness and doing the right thing.

So, she was right there, side by side with other compassionate citizens, begging the people in charge to stop being cruel and unjust. She was demanding that the human beings in the detention center, be treated as human beings. She was begging for the children to be reunited with their parents. She was requesting that the government come up with a way to help the people come here legally. That we stop forgetting that we were founded by Immigrants, who did the same thing these people have done. They came here to have a better life, and to enjoy freedom and avoid persecution in their country of origin. She stood for what is right and good. 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! We have a busy weekend ahead. Tonight, we are attending the yearly showing of Polar Express, at a local church. We wear our jammies and cuddle up in blankets, while watching the movie. Then we enjoy cocoa and cookies, and visit Santa. I will try to remember to post our picture with Santa on my Facebook page. Then the weekend will be spent cleaning the house, finishing up decorating, and wrapping gifts. Chad will be volunteering at the Food Bank, Saturday night, and I think Gigi and I will cuddle up and watch some Christmas movies. 

Don't forget to check out the rest of this month's Secret Subject Swap posts!! I will meet you there, after I get home from dropping Gigi off at school. It is Ugly Sweater day today, and she looks adorable in her sweater. We also attended an Ugly Sweater volunteering night, at the Food Bank last night. I got her three Ugly sweaters. I ordered them online. Her unicorn one is just way too big. Her shark one is too big, but still wearable. Her sequin one fits well. I guess one out of three isn't too bad. I am tempted to buy her another unicorn one, that will actually fit her. I saw some at Walmart. We shall see. I will post pics for you guys to see!! Just keep an eye out on my Facebook page. So, for now, go read all of the Secret Subject Posts. For later, check my page for pictures!!

Have a fantastic weekend!!

  1. Sounds like you have a very busy weekend! I'm doing the exact opposite other than the jammies and Christmas movies. I'm not leaving my house at all this weekend. Hubby has to work all three days, we're expecting a snow storm, and I'm going to enjoy every second of it from inside the house! Happy Holidays! I hope Gigi gets everything she wants...and it doesn't break the bank haha!

  2. I am so proud of what Marlee did. I stand with her. Who are we if we can't treat human beings who are desperate to flee suffering with kindness and respect.

  3. If I ever get arrested it would probably be for similar, and I really don't think anyone would be suprised. haha
