I don't think people who know me would say that I am prone to rants. Overall I don't think they're particularly helpful and unless you are Rick Mercer, I think people just tune you out anyways. But I've felt one coming on for some time now that I just need to get off my chest. So I've laid a few ground rules for myself before I let loose. My rant needs to be:
R - Respectful (No names, no one attacked)
A - Accountable (I have thought thru what I say and I stand by it)
N – Not allow myself to go on and on and on. (Cause it's tempting!)
T – True (These are not observances based on rumours but on first hand lived experience)
So with that in mind, here goes...
I. AM. TIRED. Not physically tired. My heart is tired. I am TIRED of seeing so many young people who are without hope. I am TIRED of adults (usually well-meaning) who tip toe around major issues because they don't want to appear "preachy". Well...if you consider it "preachy" to share...
