Welcome to Episode 2 of the Street Sage, I hope you are having as much fun as we are.
Each one of our episodes will be brought to you by silly words we put into a bucket. We call these words on paper “tokens”, we will draw two tokens every episode, just for funzies, the words will be what the episode is brought to you by. Makes sense, right?

Era it was OK to be fat: It’s the Renaissance era more so than the Elizabethan era that fluffy (aka fat women) were desired. I’m not an encyclopedia, do your research.

I am not super into Holidays. But it was Thanksgiving yesterday, so I thought I would give a little thanks to the people who raised me. Thanks Ma and Pa! I am one of the lucky ones, I have sweet, supportive parents, I am not blind to the privilege that gives me in life.
Parents aren’t perfect, they do the best they can with what they are given. Do I believe that some people should never pro create? Yes, yes I do. But let’s try to not hold that against everyone. I think we learn as much from our parents failures as we do from what they’ve done right by us. Think about it, you have a lazy parent you could either be lazy too OR you could work your ass off to never be that lazy. Maybe your parents had a bad break up and you lived in a broken home. You may make sure you have the perfect relationship before you get married OR you might never marry because of it OR if you do end up in a relationship that doesn’t work out, maybe you handle the split better than your parents did.
There are a million factors that make us who we are, let’s not begrudge the ones who raised us because they are not perfect, neither are we. I understand as much as anyone that this point could be argued with me and I may even argue with myself, however, once we are adults we’re in control of us. Kids are the ones who have it rough, they can’t help themselves nor have any control over how they are being raised. Yes, this can have a negative effect on how a youth grows up. Once you are old enough to work and care for yourself you make the choices about what type of person you want to be.If you had shitty parents, make better choices than they did, be a better person. If you had everything handed to you (which I am considering a flaw), then make sure you remember to not be an asshole to the people who have to work their asses of to get what they have. Everyone struggles with the limitations set on them by their parents and I would like to remind you that you do not have to live your life within those boundaries. Reach for the stars homie, reach for those bright shiny stars and be the best of yourself. Regardless of your worthless parents.
People die every day and in every kind of way. People get murdered, raped, robbed. They get beat up, fired and harassed. It’s tragic and scary when children get shot up at school and when some children go missing.
BUT DON’T FORGET…
People live every day and in every kind of way. People fall in love, make love and give to others. They stand up for what they believe in and succeed against all odds. Children go to school to learn and play with their friends.
That even though there are terrors in the world, there is also much more good to counter. People are so use to living in fear that they forget all the good. People are generally good. Play with your neighbors, build a community, don’t be afraid of the unknown person. We as a collective of human beings need to remember that we are the majority and that the 1% would crumble if we all realized what that power means.
