Vampire Maman is pissed off.
My son belonged to a Facebook group that included people from all over the world. He thought it was cool…until now. He was recently attacked for being an American. It was ugly and sad. It was simply for the fact that he spoke his mind about tolerance and understanding. Holy crap, can you imagine what the assholes would have said to him if they’d known he was a vampire?
Tolerance and Understanding are difficult words for many people, in many cultures, to understand. It is even difficult for some people who live here (in the US).
It upset him greatly but I told him he was the better person for it.
I told him that MOST people aren’t like that, which after living for this long I’ve discovered it TRUE. Most people are GOOD. Really. I mean it.
Vampires, werewolves and others who are “different” have to hide who we are in order to survive.
In many places in the world regular humans are also excluded, beaten, jailed, killed and disrespected for their political and religious beliefs. Far too many are treated like livestock no more than property because they were born female. They are driven out of their homes because their DNA or “ethnic” group isn’t correct.
When I was younger I was very judgmental of everyone and everything. As I’ve grown older I’ve learned that we can’t judge others.
I’m saddened when I hear stories from all over the world of people blindly hating each other. What the fuck is that all about? What the Hell is wrong with people?
Oh right, I guess I just forgot that people are stupid.
So, in light of that, we vampires continue to live in the dark, yet at the same time we live in the light because we’re not THEM. We’re not the blind haters.
That is all for my political agenda for today.
We’ll get back to normal vampire, werewolf, and paranormal stuff and maybe even throw in some more ghost stories, book reviews and poetry. And humor. Let’s get some humor in here too.
