Accessories By Alice – My New Adventure

I’ve decided to take on a new project; creating ‘Soleless Sandals’ in my spare time. It’s a little side adventure I’ve began dabbling in courtesy of my Sister Elizabeth. The idea came when she asked my Nana and I to create some of these Sandal things for her up-coming destination wedding in Jamaica. They’ve turned out to be pretty simple to create, and in creating these I get a few hours each day where I can truly focus on something and ignore the ugliness in the world around me. Plus, if in the future after I’ve finished a few different kinds I wonder if I’ll actually end up selling them to anyone or not. I guess I’ll have to wait and see.

Photographs were not taken by me, nor are they owned by me in any way. I found them using Google.com Any photos taken by me will be showcased on my Photography page.

Alison And Adam, Let Their Unfortunate Deaths Be An Eye Opener

‘Father of slain reporter vows to be ‘absolutely relentless’ in push for gun control’

The CP24 Report on the tragic and pointless murders of Alison Parker and Adam Ward is a prime example of why there need to be stricter Gun Control Laws in the United States. I myself am Canadian, so those who own guns here are few and far between compared to the U.S. So when I hear of a sensless shooting like this take place, it makes me wonder what the hell is going on in our society that causes these kinds of situations?

Regardless of the stresser that pushed the gunman over the edge, why are so many unstable people allowed to walk around freely baring arms? If I were to walk into an American Walmart, and see some person standing in line in front of me with a huge rifle, I’d assume we’re getting robbed. But that’s me, I’m not used to being around weapons openly in public without it being on the 5:00 news. It scares me knowing people have become so desensitized to things like openly bearing arms, sensless murders, gang attacks, bombings, and threats. Not saying I’m a pussy, because you bet your ass if Martial Law was called into effect I’d protect my own. But this is everyday life.

I hope Mr. Parker does follow through with finding a way to make Gun Laws more strict in the United States. I would hope those who have registered licenses, and those who would want to get one, would get a psychological evaluation done before being allowed to even apply to get said license. But, I guess money talks louder than the safety of our streets.
