Today’s Questions to the Readers are….
How important is your birth family to you?
My birth family is very important to me. I’m very family oriented. I’m very close to both sides of my family. I try to stay in touch with everyone even one of the three cousins on my mom’s side of the family that she doesn’t really want me to have any relationship with because of all the stuff that happened years ago when my maternal grandmother passed away and my maternal uncle felt like he was the one who should pay for his mom’s funeral and not the husband of one of my maternal aunts. He felt like the son was more important than the son in law and he actually tore up the check and ended up paying for it himself. In November of 2016, my mom went to India to help get everything ready for my wedding of Christmas Eve. Ironically her brother was on the same flight from London to Hyderabad but they acted like strangers and didn’t even talk to each other. Everyone says that I have a lot of qualities that my maternal grandmother had because we both wanted everyone to be happy together. I’m sure all my cousins have heard the stories that when my mom and her ten siblings were growing up they never fought well I would like to ask them then why do you guys ignore each other now.
What gets too much attention in the news?
There is one thing that I’m tired of watching on the news and it is I really can’t stand hearing about another school shooting or any other shooting anywhere else. I just don’t understand why the government isn’t doing anything about gun laws. How many more people have to die or lose someone they love because of a shooter? Sometimes you could have missed being at the scene of a shooting just by a couple of minutes. On the night of October 1, 2017 my younger sister was on vacation with her best friend in Las Vegas, Nevada. They attended a show at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and then went to dinner at a restaurant. When they were on there way back to their hotel they saw a lot of police cars. Just today there was another shooting at a mall. That hits close to home especially for me because I work at an outlet mall.
If you could change 3 things about your country, what would you change?
Why couldn’t we just for once have a woman for president? Every country in the world has had a female leader. Even India has had a woman Prime Minister.
Why can’t women and men get equal wages?It’s the 21st Century right now it’s not the 17th Century when men ruled everything and Women had barely any rights.
Why can’t more people actually live by the Golden Rule. Everyone is taught in school that we should follow the Golden Rule of Treat others how you want to be treated.
What fact amazes you every time you think of it?
The fact that Hillary Rodham Clinton lost the election when she definitely had more experience. The fact that our president still hasn’t shown his tax returns when every president before him has showed their tax returns.
