Give love on Christmas day

This is the words that I keep on hearing lately.  A simple sentence but very meaningful to us if we are to dig what this sentence is all about and how does it affect us.  I was walking on the sidewalk two weeks and saw people busy buying gifts for their loved ones, eating outside with their loved ones, and enjoying the day at the park.  This is how they show loves to their loved ones.  I am touch by the thoughts that these people are giving time to spend time with their families and loved ones.  But, what touches me the most are those less fortunate ones on the street, asking foods and money.  Seeing them, makes me realized how blessed I am Lord.  Thank you for the blessing and for giving me, my family.

To me, those less fortunate ones are the ones who need more love and caring.  Their life is so hard and difficult, and they could have a chance, I am pretty sure they would want to change their life to make it better.  Give their family and child a decent life.  But life is so difficult for them.  Each of us has the different life story, I pray that one day their life would get better.  If I have the chance and wealth, I would probably share with them what I have.  These less fortunate once are the ones who need more love this Christmas day.

If you happened to read this post, How would you give love on Christmas day?

What Criminal Statistics Can And Can’t Tell You

Criminal justice researchers are just one of many people who have an interest in crime statistics. A West LA crime report doesn’t just document the hard work of law enforcement officials, but the many agencies and individuals who have an interest in what is causing the crime reports to read the way they do. Statistics themselves aren’t just numbers. They reveal a trend of human behavior that many hope has a solution.

Violent crime is of particular interest to researchers, advocates, and law enforcement officials, as well as the legislators who make the laws themselves. When someone reads a crime report, what they’re getting is raw data that reveals a trend of human behavior. Violent crime affects the lives of many millions of people in each state. If the numbers can be deciphered and trends recognized, it’s possible to change those things that are causing the violent crime to take place.

These reports are used to allocate resources so that crime trends can be stopped before they become an epidemic. If someone notices a spike in shootings, they don’t just take that data at its word and assume that this is the way it should be. They attempt to discover WHY there is a spike in violent shootings and then question how law enforcement and legislators can work together to reduce the number of shootings in a given area. If poverty, for example, is thought to be a trend or it’s seen that people who live in poverty commit more shootings, then legislators might work to allocate more resources to those neighborhoods where there is a spike in shooting. They may send advocates and social workers to help the people there have more resources so that they don’t feel so threatened on a daily basis. More law enforcement personnel may get involved in areas like this and try to directly intervene so that fewer shootings happen.

These are the ways that crime reports are used. Ultimately, the purpose of a crime report is to tell legislators, advocates, social workers, and individuals the trend of crime in the area so that they can make the necessary changes to these environments and ultimately reduce the number of crimes committed. There is always more work to do in this area, as crime is pervasive in many different areas where reports are frequently printed out.

Imposing a law in mental issue

I was listening to a local radio station this morning and their topic is all about teenager of who commits suicide after the heartbreak.  I wonder why they easily took their own life with the simple problem.  Yes, breaking up with someone we love dearly is so painful, but we must know that there are things that are not meant to be.  If we are in a relationship, we must know that this is just permanent.  Some things might happen along the way, and it is best to end it for the good of both parties.  In the situation like this, we must learn to accept the things that are not meant for us.  We may get depressed but if we learn to share and open it to the family, we will move on fast and go on with life.  Family intervention does help a lot especially to young ones who suffered heartaches at a young age.  And of course, prayer is the best medicine.

This issue is very alarming, that is why the city mayor is imposing a law on a mental issue.  This law will surely help to save the life of young ones who lost hope after the heartbreaks.  They need proper counseling for them to really understand this kind of issue and what is going on.  That they have better future ahead of them.  They need to realize that there is always the rainbow after the rain, and there is light at the end of the dark tunnel.  Life is so beautiful to end it.  Failure, heartaches, and sorrows are like spices of life.  They come and go to make us stronger, wiser and better person.  We just must continue moving and think of the family and the future.  And do not forget to pray and talk to God.   Hopefully, this mental health law will be passed.

Second chance of love

One of the heartbreaking experience of a woman is when the man they choose to love and think that will always be there for her through thick and thin will leave her without any words.  They are like, go with the wind as they say.  Although they have reasons for leaving the girl, it is not good to leave just like that.  No matter how hurtful it is, every girl deserves an explanation.  And for sure will accept and respect your decision.  Because you cannot force a man to love you back when he is fallen for somebody else, or just being the coward to face the current situation.

I am saying this because of my friend.  The guy she chooses to love just disappeared after she told him that she is expecting.  I must say he is afraid to face the responsibility of their actions.  He opted to leave than to be with my friend.  She was devastated but should accept it and continue moving on because she is going to be a mother.  It is the very difficult situation, but with the help of her family she has moved on and stood up from falling.

However, the guy came back after five (5) years and is asking for a second chance of love.  Will she accept him?  I do not know what to answer to her when she asked me of my opinion.  It is her life and it is her happiness.  Everyone deserves a second chance but depends on the situation.  It is really up to her if she will give him a second chance or not.  I do hope that my friend will decide correctly to avoid being hurt again.

If I were to ask you, what should my friend do?

How To Get A Car Loan If Your Credit Is Bad

Everyone needs a car but sometimes it can be difficult if your credit is bad or non-existent. Fortunately, there are options for people whose credit may not be the best. Here is how to go about getting a car loan when you have bad credit.

1. The first thing to do is to order your credit report. This will give you a good idea as to where your credit stands. The lower your credit score, the higher the interest will be on any loan you will eventually receive.

2. If you have a checking or savings account, ask your bank first before approaching other lenders. An actual bank or credit union will give you may favorable terms than other lenders will.

3. If the bank turns you down, ask your insurance company. Some insurance companies offer their customers financing options when purchasing new or used vehicles.

4. If neither of these options work, it is time to shop for loans from companies who cater to people with very poor credit. Be honest with yourself and know that you will be paying a much higher interest rate than you would if you have good or great credit. One key thing to remember is to not accept the first loan that is offered. It is best to shop around to see what the best deal that can be had is.

5. Once a loan provider is found, they will want to know the size of the down payment that can be made is. The size of the down payment may also affect the interest rate of the loan, but not always.

6. One thing that can be done to secure more favorable car loans for people with bad credit is to have a close relative co-sign the loan for you. What this does is ensure that the other person, the co-signer, will pay back the loan if the first signer, you, defaults on the loan.

By following these easy steps, you will be on your way to getting a car loan and driving away with your very own vehicle.
