Go Big At Home

Standard

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day.

Start anew

We have elected a new president

We are getting rid of all sorts of systematic racism

We are taking precautions against sickness.

Something has to get better

Choose now what you want to improve

This is a necessity not just a news years resolution

It is like the changes we made because of the Civil War and World War II

We emancipated slaves

Woman were now workers

The depression had us budgeting our money differently.

We are repeating history

Stoping racism

Woman and minorities in major business and political roles

Budgeting because of Covid

We didn’t do it well enough the first time so we are doing it again.

I don’t know about you but this is a spring cleaning where no corner is left to make dust bunnies.

We are not going big OR go home.

We are going big AT home.

Be the better person you dreamed and do it now

Then you won’t have to eat those complaints inside you stressing you out.

Happy Thanksgiving

Standard

It is time

For turkey

Cranberries and gravy

Mashed potatoes

Stuffing

Green beans

Brussel sprouts

With carrots and squash

Yams or sweet potatoes

Maybe even both

Rolls and biscuits

Also offered

But don’t forget

The spinach salad

Dressed vinaigrette

There are others

But to me those

Are the staples

However

Even the pies

Following

None of that

Would ever seem filling

If we didn’t honor

What the day

Was truly about

Saying Thank You

Or thanks

for all our blessings

Especially family

And friends

With you

Or zoomed in

Breathing easily

Yesterday

Today

And Tomorrow

-Jennie Nawrocki

Keep Going

Standard

You should be thankful

You made it this far

In one of the craziest years

There ever was

No we are not

Counting our chickens

Before they are hatched

We are looking down

At the mountain

We have already climbed

And looking forward to

the finish

Keep going

Stay focused

Most of all

Survive

-Jennie Nawrocki

Starting Now

Standard

A new beginning

Deserves a new attitude

I don’t know

If I prepared for that

But certainly

I shouldn’t look at

The world

With such worry

For I know

You want the same

As me

How to live on this world

Without devastation

What should we do

To get there

I’m listening

For every vote counted

Every voice is heard

We have such a short time

To change

Covid

Climate emergencies

Social Security

Inter country relations

Based somewhat on

Immigration

Commerce

Race and religious tremendous similarities

Economy

Social media influences

Standards of living

Power vs control

Animal safety

Let’s make this world

Our home

First things first

Is that your enemy because you

Feel threatened?

Or were hurt?

Knowing why

Determines the path

To the solution

For enemies impede goals

Find a way to turn

Contentious relationships civil

Whereas amicable relationships

Build community

There is no time to waste

Bring ideas

Bring openness

Bring it now

-Jennie Nawrocki

VOTE

Standard

4 years ado I wrote a letter to Donald Trump and posted here on Penaugural.

I said I wouldn’t vote for Trump if he didn’t improve America. Trump didn’t.

So I didn’t vote for Trump when I sent in my absentee ballot.

Trump could have done a better job as President.
