#MM Live At The Garden

I am thrilled to be this week's spotlight dancer and to take you to the concert we attended Saturday night. Sorry I can't share the delicious picnic basket, but I'll give you a taste of the music we heard. 

Monday Music Moves Me is into male rock 'n roll or country stars this week, so I'm featuring the bands we just heard.

First up, we enjoyed The Plain White Ts. They were a special treat that didn't even get their name printed on the ticket. Quite an under appreciated band who had a fabulous stage presence.

Next up came Daughtry, who we really couldn't see because two rude women blocked our view and refused to sit down throughout the entire performance, even though five different people contacted event staff. When I asked nicely, the beotch said, "I can do what I want." Selfish, but I believe karma will get her back.

Before the Goo Goo Dolls took stage, event staff had a long chat with the women––who stayed seated throughout most of the performance. Of course, it didn't matter to us because we moved seats along with four other frustrated people. 

As the spotlight dancer, I get to pick the theme in two weeks. I've chosen a great one for me here in Memphis and anyone else from a musical place. If it's tough for you, feel free to reach a little outside your borders as I present two requests: Tell us where you are from, and post your hometown bands, artists, or songs.

Weekend Writing Warriors / #8sunday / 07/13/14

A weekly festival of writers sharing excerpts from their work.  
Many different genres; something for everybody. 

     Here is a passage from my unpublished young adult manuscript called BEING BENITO CARLEFFA. 
Ben was recently told that his mother had died.


I clenched Mom’s pin in my pocket––twisted, turned, and squeezed it tight enough to tear it in two, until the point jabbed my pinky. “No!” Yanking my hand out of my jeans, I sucked my stinging finger and gave it a rapid shake. Next, my hands covered my face and then worked their way to the top of my head where I clutched my hair in a firm grip. My heart pounded in my ears as I rocked forward and back continuously. “You’re lying.” I grit my teeth and squeezed my eyes shut to keep my tears inside. “Dammit!” I punched the door. “Why won’t you tell me the truth?”

I Support Israel!

On June 10th, three Israeli teenagers were abducted and murdered by Palestinians from the West Bank. Hamas called the murderers heroes and held celebrations where Palestinians danced and passed out candy. The news never reported these celebrations because everything reported must slam Israel in the
eyes of the world; however, you did hear reports of how an Israeli murdered an innocent Palestinian boy in revenge of the killings. Did the news tell you that Israel immediately condemned this murder, and Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to hold the murderer accountable? Or, did they report how Israeli police have arrested a suspect in the Palestinian boy's murder who will be punished if found guilty. This is quite a different reaction to the murders. In fact, this disgusting cartoon was posted on "The Palestinian Movements/Fatah's" central page depicting the murdered Israeli boys as rats caught in a fishing line with a caption translated to, "A Master Stroke." 

Sparked by these controversies, Israel is now involved in what looks like the start of a full blown war with Hamas. Today's New York Times headline reads, "Gaza Deaths Spike in Third Day of Israel Air Assaults." The article goes on to discuss Palestinian deaths while over 100 rockets have been shot into Israel. Try over 400 rockets

When these rockets bomb Israeli areas filled with civilians, sirens sound for Israelis to take cover in bomb shelters. Furthermore, five 55 million dollar iron dome missile defense systems knocks many rockets out of the sky before they can do damage. This is why Israeli deaths have been absent, knock on wood.

On the Palestinian side, missiles are targeted at the rocket launchers that threaten Israelis and at the Hamas leaders. Before such attacks begin, Israel has dropped leaflets, phoned civilians in the area, and launched radio reports warning people to leave the area before the attack. Rather than leave as told, people are used as human shields to win the media war. "Look at all of the innocent children the Israelis have killed." Some of the photos have been found to not even be real, but rather deaths from as far back as 2009 or from a war between Syria and Iraq. Are Israelis really killing innocent people, or are they being killed by Hamas terrorists who put them in harms way? The news media is quick to blame everything on Israel as does a good part of the world. But let me ask, if missiles rained down on your country, would she defend herself? IF so, you need to support Israel. 

You may donate to help Israel if you desire.

You may even donate pizza to the IDF soldiers in Israel.
