It has been AGES since I wrote anything on my blog. I apologise for dropping off the grid and resurfacing once again like nothing even happened.
Life just happens sometimes. You all know how that goes. I have been somewhat busy with doing my own thing: working at my part-time job; trying to better establish my massage business and get more clients; as well as helping and following the whims of my one remaining parent. After a while it gets a bit overwhelming. I needed some much needed time away to gather my thoughts. Then the last few days I was thinking about possible making a post but at the same time I did not know what to write about.
These days I am commenting a lot on Facebook articles and posts and so I was writing a not so nice comment to someone when suddenly without warning I got inspired. I was responding to their comment on a historical post about undiscovered letters slaves wrote to their slave owners way back when. The commenter under that post was basically being defensive and talked about how Africans sold their own to Europeans to be made as slaves and while I was responding to him this quote came to mind.
“Just because you get handed a loaded gun does not mean you HAVE to shoot it.”
It is the equivalent of “Just because you can does not mean you should”. Essentially meaning just because the slave owners were in some cases being given slaves does not mean they HAD to take them and make them slaves. They did what they did because they wanted to.
Anyway, I added this at the end of my comment and decided to make it into a quote because it sounded like a really good analogy that anyone would be able to comprehend, don’t you think? What do you think about my quote? Do you agree with it or do you think it needs some work? Let me know.
