Tell me what you want to hear
Something that will light those ears
Sick of all the insincere
I'm gonna give all my secrets away
This time, don't need another perfect lie
Don't care if critics ever jump in line
I'm gonna give all my secrets away
I felt like uploading at 1 am oh well 💁
I see a lot of tribute posts for this actress on young feminist pages so I'm here to address a few issues:
Rowan Blanchard has made quite a name for herself among her generation for being a bit outspoken about very controversial topics such as feminism, racism, gun violence and abortion. Many young girls view her as a role model and "ahead of her time" but I'm here to set that record straight and put into perspective how out of touch with reality this child is.
Rowan Blanchard is a 15 year old actress. In the last two years she has become a well known spokesperson for planned parenthood and was a diehard supporter of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign (despite the fact that she, along with the majority of her followers, was not old enough to vote.) When "championing" for the abortion biz she makes it a point to state that planned parenthood helps those living below the poverty line and minorities, two things that Rowan herself has and will never understand. She was born to wealthy, white family in an upscale neighborhood in Las Angeles. Her acting career began at age 5 and her net worth alone is over 3 mil, not to mention the fact that 2 of her siblings are also in the acting business and her parents continue to grow their own bank accounts daily. See Rowan and the people of her world have never needed to rely on regular healthcare clinics and she is therefore very ignorant to what is supplied to women through pp and what is supplied by other clinics.
I don't know about you, but I'm pretty sick of Hollywood elitists shoving their ignorant opinions on the faces of young, naive children and being praised for it.
I find young people getting involved in these issues refreshing and encouraging but only if they're willing to actually learn before speaking.
#NEWSFLASH the #purpose of #secrets is to keep #classified#personal#information out of the #publicdomain . Intentionally, I live my life out in the open because hiding parts of your life and lying about what you do can be a #fulltime stressful job. If you got that much going on you need to keep from other people, you need to make #adjustments in your personal life. And yes, I have secrets that are going to my #grave or the #crematorium with me. People that say they have no secrets are either #lying or #boring , maybe both. Nobody needs to know all your #private#business . If you need #therapy , get some. Like #priests , they are #legally bound to maintain your with two exceptions. They believe you will harm yourself or someone else. Part of being #adult is having information and experiences about ourselves no one else needs to know. I hope that helps somebody. You have a right to keep your secrets secret.
Return to the Secret Garden by Holly Webb is a magical story. Webb has placed the sequel in 1939 which is effective as it presents a believable way to bring children back to Misselthwaite Hall with the same sense of abandonment, a search for family and a need to belong. It is also effective as the whole concept of being taken away from the city and deposited in the middle of the countryside in a big rambling old house is very appealing to children.
I thought the way Webb weaves her story in and amongst Hodgson Burnett’s story was really clever and interesting. She captures the same tension and suspense of the howling wind, the crying at night, the discovery of a secret place and the connections it has with the family’s past. The references and cross overs were sensitive and totally in keeping with the original. Emmie’s character is well constructed with her emotions being well represented. The reader follows her journey from being lonely, frustrated and angry to healing others around her and finally becoming part of something very special.
I received this book from Sourcebooks Jabberwocky via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
