MJ, "Hold My Hand"

Two years..



                                                                                           6/25/11





  
Twenty four months and still,
   It's hard to know what to say
   Time is of little and every consequence
  
    I still remember
    When they said you had gone

    Those concrete steps
     Were light in difference to our hearts
      Had to leave the TV on in the other room
      Too much..

      And it still is.

       But it helps to remember...

 Love over hate
Love over judgment
Love over difference
Love, over the wall of your fame
Love for and because of all you taught us

That's what makes those steps things to walk upon
Makes me sit here and write poetry once again

Makes me remember what to say..and how to say it.

I hope you're dancing again....








8*29*58-6*25*11


Forever missed...forever loved.

You're a real jerk, Glenn Beck!


What a CREEP Glenn Beck is! What does it say about him that he would launch such a mean spirited attack on a young woman who was doing something for a good (and not even political) cause? I may differ with Meghan politically, but I think she is 100% right here. So tired of how anything over a size 1 for a woman in this society gets labeled "fat" or a "baby bump". You tell him, Meghan! :

After Meghan McCain wore a revealing dress in a skin cancer PSA, Glenn Beck launched a vicious tirade about her body—suggesting she wear a burqa and saying the idea of her naked made him want to vomit. In an open letter to Beck, McCain asks if this is the legacy he wants to leave his daughters.

Sorry for three political entries in a row (though the last one was personal to me as well :)), but this isn't even *just* about politics for me. Like so many other women out there, I have dealt with my fair share of weight/body imagine issues over the years so I can relate on a very human level to how Meghan must've felt, reading this kind of hateful---not to mention sexist..and stupid, childish-- vitriol from Beck. But IMO at least, Meghan has nothing to be embarassed for--not only is she a stunningly beautiful young women who should be proud of her body, but she was doing something for a great , universally important cause. I'm sorry, but WTF has Beck ever done to help better society, besides spreading the very divisive, vitriolic rhetoric that is exactly the problem in our political dialogue and discourse? Yes I know I am biased, but my siding with and support of Meghan McCain in this matter--someone who is very different from me on many issues politically--should, hopefully at least, show that this isn't partisan for me. It's this very same garbage that's much of the reason why so many young women--and yes, young men too..and not even just the young probably either..--suffer from eating disorders and such. And as a father of young daughters himself, Beck oughta know better. Just shameful. I can't speak for him of course, but if I were John McCain and this were my daughter, no matter her age, I'd want to kick Beck's ass!! :) 

Good for Meghan for not only sticking up for herself, but for being a voice, in her own way, for so many other women out there and anyone else who has every been made to feel like less because they don't conform to a cookie cutter standard set by US Magazine.  I may disagree with her on a lot politically, but I really admire her and I hope she will continue to feel free to speak her mind and express herself as she sees fit, in spite of such meaness from people like Beck. But considering the fact that even FOX NEWS is parting ways with him, I think his 15 minutes of fame is clocking in at around 14:59..

Sorry to any Beck fans reading this--and feel free to disagree with me on here if you do. But this just gets under my skin! :)

More soon,

Tara

STILL pinching myself! :)


So Saturday was pretty much one of the most awesome days of my life so far! :D I have a lot to say about the event--Senator John Kerry's town hall at the iconic, historic Fanuiel Hall in Boston--but I'll let my pics do the talking first ;):










Kerry was in top form--he really does seem to be in his element at and in Faneuil Hall, a place that of course holds so much history, both in general and for Kerry politically..and probably personally.

There was very good attendance at this town hall too and lots of people put in to ask questions! Not everyone got called this time (including me, but that's okay..I got my question in last time, at the town hall he did in nearby Waltham, Mass...which is a whole separate post that I need to do sometime soon...I have some real catching up to do here on LJ! :) ). There was quite a range of questions as others who were there can attest to, I am sure. Some of the questions from certain groups felt more like filibuster speeches than questions, lol, but JK handled them with class..and of course with an exception grasp on the issues at hand! I liked how he turned the tables on this one guy--who accused him of having an "Imperialist mindset" when it comes to Afghanistan and other foreign affairs --asking him what HE would do in his and Pres. Obama's situation, what his ideas, solutions would be. He did this in a respectful way, of course...but it made a point and was very effective, imo.

There were so many great statements made by the Senator this go around...this townhall only further confirmed to me (though I needed no convincing  :)) how much of a NATURAL the Senator is in this, the town hall setting! It has been filmed and I cannot wait to see it again, in its entireity! I also like how he called the 2000 election "the one that the Supreme Court decided" (or something to that effect) and again condemned the awful recent SC decision regarding corporate campaign donations. He was so on point, on a wide variety of issues..though Afghanistan and the economy were, not surprisingly, top bill during this town hall.

I also--thanks to a series of very fortunate, perhaps coincidental events and a very nice staff lady who I made a point to thank profusely afterwards (still not sure exactly what happened..I guess she saw the question I had written down..)! -I got to speak with JK right after the town hall wrapped up...and to give him a little thank you card of sorts I had brought with me, on the off chance of getting to pass it along to him, though I wasn't expecting to actually get to give it to him directly! It was just a little something to thank him for his leadership and for the inspiration he has given me and all of us. I also mentioned the Kerry forum on the Democratic Underground.com--the forum that started it all for me really, in terms of being an active "Kerrycrat" and all around Dem in Mass-- in the letter.  That got me a hug..right after which this pic was taken:





I think I look awful in it, lol, but it's a terrific pic of the Senator...and such a special moment. I am still pinching myself!   As I've said before...he is just so warm, so sincere..so REAL. I can't stress that enough, how many people just do NOT get it! At least more media were there this time. Maybe now this will get the recognition it deserves!

I also got my copy of his and Teresa's book, "This Moment on Earth" signed, thanks to a fellow supporter I went with to the event (whose s/n escapes me and I don't know offhand if they are comfortable with real names but they know who they are..if you are ever on here and see this, thank you! ):





I just love that  Senator Kerry does so many events like this, even now, years out of another re-election campaign. He's the only Senator in this state, as far as I am concerned! :D And if indeed he chooses to run again in 2014, no matter where I am at that point, if at all possible, I will be back here to campaign for him! I believe in him THAT much. As I told him during our meeting (which happened not to have been our first...but was probably the most personal), he is and has been such an inspiration not only to myself, but to many others out there in MA, this country and even abroad (I know other "Kerrycrats" online from as far away as France! :)) And I meant it too, every word. I have been a proud Kerry supporter since the primaries in '03 but really got into following him and his career around the time of the '08 elections, shortly afterward. It's sad that many, even in our party, do not appreciate him in the way he IMO deserves. And though I continue to be indescribably proud to have Barack Obama for my President--and continue to support him with great enthusiasm (and would love to one day meet him as well!)--I still will always feel sad that Kerry didn't get the chance, that America missed the boat....though clearly, Kerry does not look back or is no longer doing so, if he ever did. He really seems in his element in the US Senate, as the Chairman of the Cmte he once so bravely, eloquently testified before back in '71. Talk about coming full circle! He's a hero to me..and always will be. I feel privelidged to now have him for a Senator but as I told him in the note I was fortunate enough to give to him personally on Saturday, he always was to me!

You can still see the excitement on my face in this pic, during the late lunch I had after the fact  :):  

 And ironically there's a bottle of Heinz right behind me! hehe :) BTW, Burnmyeyes75 recognizes something I am wearing in both pics, I am sure! ;) :) 

Much more soon..more about the other adventures I've had these past few months (In Mass, DC, San Francisco) and just in general. Though I love and have great fun with Facebook and Twitter, I've missed LJ and will try to update more often once things in my life settle down a bit more! :)

Too good NOT to post! :D



Eat that, Birthers, Fox News, and all who constantly degrade this President on a PERSONAL level, on a daily basis!! Who is "keeping us safe" NOW?? :p 


Don't get me wrong---I am not gleeful about the killing of bin Laden or ANY human being (I know it virtually had to be done, but there is a  big difference between acknowledging that and celebrating death..but that's a whole other post..). Others may be and I can't begrudge them for it--particularly if they were directly affected by the unspeakable tragedy that was/is 9/11. But what I celebrate is the leadership demonstrated by this President, who stepped up to the plate and did in just over 2 years what the last guy--who literally ran on this in 2004--could not do in 8. Yes, I'm getting political here, I'm aware...but honestly, how can this NOT be?  Not to say that it's ONLY political..at all. But I think we'd be remiss to miss the historical lesson that was presented for us last night and continues to play out as I write this..

To those on my list who disagree with this President/me politically...I am NOT attempting to shut down dissent or debate with this purely opinionated post..just expressing how I feel (which is so proud of my President and his leadership...and quite frankly, a sense of vindication after years upon years of being told by so many on the extreme far right that my party/those with like mind somehow do not care about national security or the safety of this nation, after 2004, which was, IMO, one of the DIRTIEST smear campaigns in American history, after what they did to statesman and PATRIOT, Senator John Kerry..I'm not talking about everyone who opposed him/us in that race, but of the extreme, fearmongering element *cough Rove and the Swiftboaters, etc *cough* This proves that Democrats can--and do--lead on these issues!

You don't have to agree with this President on anything else....but IMO at least, he should be given credit where it is due for bringing to at least some semblance of closure a decade's long, dark chapter in our nation's history. Even Bush sent out a statement acknowledging what Obama has accomplished with this. I think it's time many others on his side did the same. Just this once. Acknowledge that he is, legitimately, fair and squarely, President. This isn't something that SHOULD be partisan, IMO..though it is.

JMO. I'll shut up now. :) Other than to say that I wish the 3,000+ plus who lost their lives on 9/11/01 continued peace and the same to all families and loved ones, as well as those who lost their lives in the subsequent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and their loved ones and anyone and everyone else affected. May there one day be peace in the world..

Sorry to have left this LJ barren for so long---I've been admittedly caught up with FB and Twitter when it comes to social networking activities, but have missed LJ and plan to post more, much more, soon! :)

Tag--You're It! :)


You've been tagged, you have the honor of copying all these goofy questions, writing your own response, and tagging 25 other victims. You have to tag me so really you just need 24 more people. If I tagged you, it's because I want to know more about you - but not in a creepy stalker kind of way.

 

*Tara's Note*: This is originally from Facebook, so don't worry if you can't get 25 people. I mean if you can, great, lol, but just tag as many as you feel like. Just want to see everyone's answers! :) Also I filled this out on FB  yesterday, fwiw so most answers apply to where I was/what I was doing then.

Another, more detailed update coming soon. We so need to catch up! :)

Love,

Tara

Book I'm Currently Reading


                                What a Party!:  My Life Among Democrats:   Presidents,  Candidates, Donors,  Activists,  Alligators and other Wild Animals   by Terry McAullife (2007):







From Publishers Weekly

The ex–Democratic National Committee chair and political super– fund-raiser lives up to his nickname Mad Dog in this boisterous memoir. McAuliffe is rabidly aggressive toward Republicans (whom he describes as "willing to lie and cheat any way they could"), savaging them on talk shows and facing them down in bristling social encounters. He relentlessly pursues donors, happy to wrestle alligators and sing karaoke for checks ("for $500,000 I didn't mind humiliating myself"). He golfs, dances and plays cards with his political masters Hillary and Bill Clinton ("the Babe Ruth of American presidents"), forever preening over the role his advice and prodigious fund-raising played in their success. But on the exchange of money for access implicit in his activities, he is blustery but evasive. McAuliffe has incisive comments on the Democrats' shortcomings, especially their faintheartedness in fighting Republicans. Though he champions the Democrats as the party of the little guy—contrasting their jeans-and-barbecue shindigs with "swank, hoity-toity" GOP fund-raising events —that stance is undercut by all the name-dropping ("Ben Affleck joined Robin, Marsha, Dorothy and me for a quick tour of the skeet range") and elbow rubbing with grungily dressed billionaires. McAuliffe's inflated self-regard may give more ammunition to Republican opponents than his partisan vitriol does to Democratic allies. Photos. (Feb. 1)

From Booklist

McAuliffe, who has been involved with Democratic campaigns for the past 25 years as fund-raiser, advisor, and chairman of the Democratic National Committee during President Bush's first term, offers an energetic, behind-the-scenes look at politics. He began his career as a fund-raiser with the Carter campaign in 1980 when he became famous for wrestling an alligator. McAuliffe has gone on to raise more than $1 billion for Democrats. As an entrepreneur and millionaire, McAuliffe might be assumed to have more in common with the Republicans. But he traces his bona fides back to his childhood and his family's long-standing interest in Democratic politics. Despite his love for Democrats, he lambastes his party for failing to fight harder when the 2000 presidential election popular vote--and arguably the electoral votes as well--favored Al Gore; the Kerry campaign's reluctance to challenge Bush's qualifications as commander in chief when he allegedly had not completed his National Guard duty obligations; and a host of other sins. McAuliffe's exuberance and insider status combine to make this a fascinating look at political campaigns. Vanessa Bush

Sep. 17th, 2010

The 6th anniversary of one of the best days of my life thus far...

Just wanted to take a moment to remember that day, 9*17*04. And I thought the best way to do that would be to simply re-post my journal entry about it from that time. Oh man, the memories...:

Yesterday was seriously the BEST Michael experience I've had so far! :D It started off rather slow, but soon picked up and went BOOM from there--LOL! :p Let me tell you the story, segment by segment..;)

*********The Courthouse*********

I arrived with my friends (Gail, Dana, Marissa, and Portia) at around 5:30 am at the courthouse in Santa Maria. We wanted to come early in order to participate in the drawing for courtroom seats for the proceedings. The whole process was kinda messed up, though, because each fan could only take one ticket (last time, peeps were taking HANDFULLS, hahahha :D), thus slimming down the chances for success :/ Plus, they moved the hearing to a new and EVEN smaller room, taking the public seating count down from 60 to 30. I didn't end up getting in this time, but I wasn't too terribly bummed, as I've been so incredibly blessed to have been in before and plus, Dana and I managed to get a REALLY good spot on the fence! :D It was so hysterical, because when Michael and family first arrived, very few people noticed him, for he was kind of hidden behind the SUV door! Everyone waw all yelling "JANET!!", "JERMAINE!!", and "LATOYA!!!" and when I screamed "MICHAEL!!", everyone seemed to think I was nuts--LOL! But Michael took notice and....waved at me!!!!!! YAY!!!! :p He then pointed at this HUGE cardboard cut out this guy made of him that was almost literally identical to him on that day! It was so adorable!! :)

The wait for him to re-appear (at the hearing's break) seemed to take FOREVER, but once he came out again...OMG! It was incredible! Everyone thought his departure would go really fast and that they wouldn't see that much of him. WRONG. He showed himself to us and got right in front of his SUV!!! I was screaming my fuckin' head off!! LMAO He then got back in the SUV and kept on waving abd flashing peace signs at us. I waved the support book my friends and I made at him over the fence and he smiled and seemed to be pointing at it!!! (I think he remembered Dana and I--WHOO HOO!! :D) Dana noticed it too!!! :p Unfortunately, I was unable to actually hand it to him from there, but I was fortunate enough to meet Karen Faye right after the hearing. Folks, that lady is sooo sweet! :) I introduced myself, hugged her, and then told her about the project. She readily agreed to give it to Michael..she was soo sweet about it! :) I even got my picture taken with her. By the time I returned to Gail's car, I was breathless, but happy :) LOL

****************************************
********
NEVERLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:D
****************************************
***************************

After Michael and co. left the courthouse, so did we. As seems to be fan tradition, we went straight up to Neverland...to hang out, if nothing else;) And for awhile, it seemed as if there would indeed be nothing else, as this lady (acting as if she was part of Michael's staff, although I'm not sure if she was..) told us (in so many words) that Michael would not be opening the place up and that we "might as well go home". We chilled there for a little while longer, until we got thirsty and decided to go to McDonald's to get something to drink. On our way back, Gail got a call from a friend that Neverland WAS going to open and that we should go back ASAP. So we figured "Hey, why not?" and drove on back. After like 20 minutes or so, this guy from Michael's security team comes out with a stack of confidentiality agreements--we WERE going in after all!!! :D I was soo elated--I'd been dreaming of that moment for like three years now and now it was FINALLY happening!!! :p Let me tell you, folks..that place is GORGEOUS!!! It's every bit the fairy tale you've no-doubt heard it is...and then some. You can feel Michael's magic and love throughout the entire property. My favorite ride is the Spider (sooo spontaneous and FUN!! LOL) and the theatre is AMAZING. I'm saving my candy from there, hehehe :) Ahhh..I will NEVER forget the time spent there..:) I would especially like to thank Marissa for believing in my dream and once again, encouraging it to happen. You're the best, chica!! :)

****************************************
*****************************
The Epiphany
****************************************
**********************

After we left Neverland, us fans made quick way to the Epiphany--this Santa Barbara restaurant at which we were told Michael and his family would be having dinner and would be happy to have us there as a show of support. Truthfully, the event got off to a rather bumpy start. Fans were pushing and shoving their way to the windows (myself included! LOL..that's what excitement does to 'ya, I guess;)) and there was much confusion as to where to go and when. But it was ALL worth it to get to see him one more time...he looked SOO angelic! :) SUCH an aura around him..*sigh* When he came out and went to his SUV, I managed to be one of the few fans who were able to push through to go near the windows (there was such a crowd, LOL) Turns out I was on the wrong side and only managed to see him from the back...damn! LOL! But it was so cute, because he was all waving to the crowd and looked so hyper and excited :) I ran to the front in hopes that the windows would get pulled down or something, but the guards told us to pull away from the vehicle. I joined the crowd running after the SUV as it left, but we failed to catch up, LOL. Oh well..it was SUCH a blessing to see (and interact with!!) Michael like 4 times in ONE day and to visit NEVERLAND. What more could a fan ask for??:) I feel so blessed:)

Dana and I are spending the rest of today at the mall in San Diego chilling out and flying back home tommorow morning. I'm having the time of my life and cannot wait to do it all again sometime soon! :D

While I don't miss--one iota--Michael being on trial or under accusation, I do miss having him around, miss the good times and positive memories that myself and my friends made, in spite of it all. That part of it is what I wish we could do over (without the trial part of course).

I miss you, Michael.....thank you for the memories. I hope you're resting peacefully, sweet angel.
