Teenagers and Halloween

Halloween is quickly approaching and if you are like me and my children, looking forward to it! With my daughter being 13, a teenager, some may say "Isn't she too old to trick or treat?" I say no. Not just because she is Autistic and loves Halloween, but because she can! So I ask you, when you get that knock on the door and open it to find a Grim Reaper with pimples, a squeaky voice and a five o'clock shadow, give the kid some candy for several reasons.

You do not know everyone's story. You don't know that the 15 year old Princess Leia is actually homeless and her father is in jail, and she is just trying to have some fun. You don't know that the 17 year old Superman is taking his little sister around because Mom is working and Dad is drunk and doesn't care. You don't know that the 13 year old witch is Autistic and may look 13, but mentally is 6 and is having the time of her life.

I ask you, what would you rather see? A teenage boy taking his little sister trick or treating, or robbing the local liquer store? Perhaps the 16 year old girl standing on a street corner selling her body so she and her family can eat that night? Or both of them killed in a car crash because they were drinking at a party? I don't think so.

In closing, I say that on Halloween night when those teenagers knock on your door, give'em a high five and a Snickers bar and keep your judgement to yourself.

A country in mourning





Today, the United States says goodbye to an American Hero Sen. John McCain. He was a warrior for his fellow warriors. He supported and loved the Armed Forces, doing whatever he could to not only honor those who did not come home, but also those who did. The Senator would often visit the Vietnam War Memorial on his way to the Senate privately.  He did this to honor his Brothers-in-Arms who didn't come home, not taking away their memory by making it about him.

We often forget that those who served in Vietnam did things, sometimes horrible things, to survive. Because of these actions, these men and women were looked down upon by those at home. This is why the younger generations should, when we see these men and women should walk up to them and shake their hands and welcome them home. Simply because it may be the only time they hear it. Shake their hand, welcome them home, thank them for what they have done and buy them a Pepsi.

We who do not serve sometimes forget that those who do, are asked to do some things that we do not understand or think of. We do not know the pressures these soldiers are asked to do or have to do in order to survive. They are doing what they have to do to see the ones they love again. As those who love them, we should understand. We may not want to understand, but we should, or at the very least accept their actions.

You may disrespect the war (conflict) but don't disrespect those who serve/served.

The Passing of a Legend



We here at Angels of the Force Ministries are saddened by the passing of the music legend Miss Aretha Franklin. Miss Franklin got her start just a few miles from A.F.M HQ in Detroit Michigan singing in her father's church.

Our hearts, thoughts and prayers are with the Franklin family during their mourning. We hope that knowing she is no longer in pain or suffering eases their pain and brings comfort to their hearts.

Farewell Miss Franklin, we hope you felt and feel the love that is had for you.

Reminder to all

As I have just sent my children to school, I remind everyone who reads this to be mindful of our young ones who are off to school this month or week. Not only for those returning to school but those attending for the first time. Be mindful as you drive to work or even drive them to school, be mindful of the little ones walking or riding their bikes, let them arrive at school safely as you want your children to.

Also I remind parent, do not just fill your child's belly with breakfast in the morning, but fill their hearts as well. Give them a hug before you drop them off or board the bus or leave for school.  Knowing that they are loved each and every day will give them the emotional strength they will need to make it through the day, let alone life. Knowing that Mom and Dad are there for them no matter what will give your children a strong emotional foundation and make them better people in the long run.

I tell my own children, "I may not like you at times, but I will ALWAYS love you!" And I don't think I am wrong in saying this. Every parent, I'm almost positive, has those days when they just want to tape their kids to the wall and leave them. Their is nothing wrong with not liking your child at times, I'd be willing to say there will be days when the feeling is mutual, but ALWAYS love them! Love them no matter what they say or do or who they are.

It always breaks my heart when I hear that children come to their parents and say possibly the hardest thing to say, "Mom, Dad...I'm Gay." then the parents disown them. Your child has come to you and opened themselves up and shown who they really are. Does it change them as a person? NO Does it change their status as your child? NO They are still your child, they are still the person you raised and loved, it just means they love who they love. How does that effect us as parents? It doesn't, so we should accept that fact. We should be happy that they have LOVE in their lives, and that is all that matters!

Again, love your children every day and remind them of that!

The Force is repaying.

Greetings my friends,

I haven't had the best of luck through out my life with women, as a matter of fact I was voted by my high school class "Most Likely Never to Marry." Needless to say that kinda hurt. Up to the age of 25 I was convinced I was going to die alone.  Then along came my wife, Katrina. We have been married 22 years this past July with two lovely little girls. Even though I love my wife madly, I always knew I had more love to give than just for her or my family period. Explaining this to her and her feeling the same at one time we began our search for a Third. A Third being another young lady to join us in our marriage, creating a Triad. Yes, we are Poly. So, fast forward 20 + years we find the perfect young lady for us, she is kind, sweet and loving with very little drama attached. She also has a 3 year old Son, he fills the gap of me wanting a Son and my wife wanting another child. Plus the girls treat him like a little brother.

Well, going into this we knew she was Poly as well and had other boyfriends and a girlfriend. I recently had a chance to chat with her girlfriend. She too is very kind, sweet, understand and fun loving. Now, she has been told about us thru Lynn (our Third) and is very interested in meeting us. She also has expressed and interest in dating us as well.  Now, here I sit a short fat guy who has had TERRIBLE luck with women through out his life with not one, not two, but THREE women!

Needless to say I'm a bit overwhelmed! I've never had this much attention from women in my life! I've always been the Brother or Friend Zone Guy, which to a point is great, but it does get tiring after a while! I expressed these feelings and thoughts to them the other night, because I was feeling overwhelmed and down on myself. Then Lynn said to me, "Well don't you think that we are the Universe/Force's way of paying you back?" Meaning, the Universe/Force gave me my wife as an apology, now as an extra way of saying sorry the Universe/Force is giving me these other two women.

I never thought of it that way, but I believe that just what might be happening! I've had such horrible luck over the years with women and I've put so much good Karma into the Universe/Force through my beliefs and attitude that this might just be the way I has been chosen to repay me. Grant it this does secure my position as Alpha Nerd, but also as a good person. I am not going to second guess myself about this anymore and wish to say "Thank You" to the Universe/Force. So, in closing as say to you my friend, it is never too late for you to get repaid. As always, May the Force be with you my friends.

A long time my friends

Greetings my friends! It has been a long time since we last spoke. Well somethings have happened in that time. We've been homeless, we've found a home and put up with buttheads. All the while the Force has been with me and my family! I promise I will be online more. I look forward to it, as always may the Gods and Goddesses protect and keep you and may the Force be with you.

Please help this gathering place of peace.

For almost 25 years, there has been a place in Columbus, OH called Star Base Columbus where people of like minds can come and talk in the same tongue without judgment.  This small specialty shop has been a place where science fiction fans of all types can come and find others who enjoy the same.

It has been struggling for a while, but still keeping its head above water. Well that time is drawing near for the head to sink. Angels of the Force is PROUD to be the Chaplain's Office for Star Base Columbus and will do what we can to help. So, we are asking all people's of the world who read this or love science fiction as much as us to click the link and help. With this being said, may the Force be with you all!
