There are many little way to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all. – Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

I believe that Jacqueline Kennedy was a very loving mother, no I don’t know her but from what I’ve read and heard I believe that she wanted what was best for her children. Reading is something that is essential, but the love of reading is even better. That isn’t something that can be necessarily taught but it is something that can be encouraged when a child is young. I’ve always loved reading books and still do and now I write but I still read plenty. I believe that in order to be a good writer you need to read a lot.

Once you can express yourself. you can tell the world what you want from it. All the changes in the world for good or evil, were first brought about by words. – Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Through my writing I have learned to express what I want from the world. I tell you every single day and in many ways the different things that I wish for in life and for our world. I wish for equality, I wish for kindness, I wish for peace, I wish the things that need to but haven’t changed such as old outdated laws, stricter laws for domestic violence, sexual assault, animal abuse, law and order needs to be revamped, many things need to be redone because it’s not working the way that it is. It hasn’t been working for quite some time. There needs to be an end to racism, sexism, freedom to believe or not to believe if you don’t want. We are supposed to be living in the United States, the land of the free and home of the brave? I think that needs to be seriously looked at and rethought. Freedom and bravery.

I think the biggest achievement is that, after going through a rather difficult time, I consider myself comparatively sane. – Jacqueline Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis 1929-1994

I can relate to this quote from Jacqueline that her biggest achievement was considering herself relatively sane. I look at so much of the bullshit that I have went through from being sexually assaulted at 11 years old, to getting sexually assaulted again at 25, to having multiple domestic violence situations in two relationships one which added narcissistic abuse and animal cruelty or abuse and feeling like I have had the wind taken out of my sails completely and utterly. To deplete me of all that I knew and was and to rise once again and persevere. In many ways I think that this time around I’m supposed to write which is why I started writing every day. I want to be able to have someone read what I wrote and not make the same mistakes that I made. To see the signs. To get out before it’s too late. To believe in yourself and believe in possibilities. To have hope. To survive.
