      Good morning, everyone!! I've been finally able to sleep a bit longer in the morning - getting up  now around 5 instead of 3 or 4 AM. I've had my first cup of coffee - I take a cup for my wife and I into the bedroom at 6 each morning and we do Wordle and Quordle together. On to reading the local paper next.   Did some work outside cleaning up for spring yesterday and took our one of our mowers in for service. I am so ready for Spring!   Quiet day today, I think.   And, @Willow, that is excellent advice. We all get caught up in the negativity sometimes. Life is way too short not to find some joy in every day.

      I've played golf for many years...not especially well and have used more than my share of profanities. My wife decided to take up the sport more seriously several years ago and we play in a 9 hole summer league but on different teams. We've spent some time on a simulator at the course where our league plays until it warms up a bit. I also enjoy watching PGA and LPGA (especially) tournaments...but won't have anything to do with LIV.   I knew PXG gave military/first responder discounts - looked at them when I got new clubs a few years ago - but didn't know they had a PRIDE line of clothing. I'll check that out!!

      Good morning    I got the early shift today.  Just starting my coffee then I need to go.   could be good advice.   hugs   Willow

      Hi, and welcome to the forum!!! Lots of great information here....and filled with wonderfully supportive people!! As someone just beginning this journey, too, I look forward to hearing about your experiences.

      The shooter is said to have been under active treatment for an unspecified psych issue.  But we don't know what, or for how long, or whether they were on meds, or not taking them, or whether they were cooperating in their treatment, etc.  In other words, we don't know squat.  So I'm not going to guess.  What we do know is that the parents didn't want this person to have guns, but they snuck them into the house, snuck them out to commit the shooting, and Tennessee has no laws prohibiting gun purchases by persons under mental health care, or to be confiscated at the request of family.  So there were failures at many levels, and six people who paid for those failures with their lives.  So very sad and tragic.   Carolyn Marie

      We do not have enough well supported mental health professionals for the job needed.  We are up against the stigma that has been given to mental health problems, some from the current protocols of treatment.  I can say for myself that Mental Health issues were not accepted as realities and certainly not something that people as intelligent and, lower upper class as my family presented itself to be could tolerate.  As a result, visits for mental health reasons were not supported or even believed by my family.  With the lack of support and acceptance even I could not accept myself for needing Mental Health assistance and thus could not benefit from it.  The denial culture, and it is a culture greatly infects the most needful segments of our society.  It is the self denial of the politicians who fund the treatment and local medical services in general that is a big roadblock.  It is circular and self damning but we need to improve on it.

      I'd have preferred less focus on the man with the funny mustache from the 1930's, but she was also limited to 2 minutes and had to go for shock value.  2 minutes is barely enough time to read  3/4 of a page single spaced text in a timely manner....she crammed a lot into her time.  Hopefully her points will be remembered.

      I would add that health professionals need to stop treating symptoms and start treating PEOPLE.  A person is not their illness.  In some variations of the oath a doctor takes upon graduating school, that concept is present.    A friend of mine ended up in the hospital last year for a mental health crisis.  The system seems mostly oriented toward substance abuse or institutionalizing somebody (with out without consent.)  It doesn't seem to do much to address somebody who is in immediate crisis, but for whom enduring the crisis is preferable to the options professionals are willing to provide.  There's a big gap.  Just my opinion, but I think that's how some of these shooters get ignored until it is too late.    Loneliness is a huge problem in the USA.  Its just my impression, but I think we're one of the most lonely nations on earth.  Lots of people living by themselves, with limited or totally non-existent circles of family and friends.  Humans are social creatures, and for some folks loneliness can turn into paranoia, anti-social behavior, or even violence.  I don't have any idea of how our society can solve that problem, although I could make a wish list of possible methods.

      I enjoy cooking....or rather, helping my partners cook.  Not that good at it yet.  I enjoy taking care of kids - those in our family and also in our community.  I love how accepting they are of anybody willing to talk to them and show them interesting things.  I enjoy working in the garden, since I get to bring in the literal fruits of my labor and see how it nourishes my family.  Basically, a simple life is a good life for me.

      One more government joy.  And don't forget, there's a lot of "therapy" and "counseling" out there that is basically just Conversion Therapy Lite.  I was subjected to some of that.  There's plenty of legal ways for those in power to mess with a person's mind.

      When I listened to the news this morning (the opening 18 minutes on ABC's Good Morning America) the shooter was referred to as trans.  From the videos, I gathered the shooter may have been non-binary, but it was just my gut feeling by how she was dressed and the way she carried herself.  Ultimately, though, this isn't about gender or gender care.  The fundamental root cause of mass shootings is society's blind eye to mental health.  Mass shootings tend to be a symptom of the root cause, which I believe is our inability to deal with the overwhelming mental health crisis we are facing in this country.  We have to stop treating symptoms and instead, target the actual disease.  Until we do that, these mass shootings won't go away.

      That's pretty cool Hannah.  I'll check out his line PRIDE clothing.  Speaking of golf, I just booked my first tee time of the year.  Hoping to get in a bunch of rounds this year.

      GLAAD publishes a media guide that is distributed to reputable media sources. This gives the media outlet information on that sort of thing.  This is a link to that guide.  https://www.glaad.org/reference   The problem is that a number of the media outlets such as the Fox and similar outlets toss it in their trash cans or outright mock the guide.     Probably this was because Australia / New Zealand medical societies do not use the same manual as is done in the U.S. and Canada, where the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health) is updated and re-published every few years, and this medical publication is where the Psychiatric and Psychological Associations collaborate and define Behavioral Health issues, and it was DSM5 where Trans was no longer considered a mental illness but was listed because the help of medical personnel is needed to alleviate the Dysphoria symptoms since the DSM is used by insurance companies to provide coverage for treatment.  Other countries in Europe and Australia and New Zealand use the WPATH Standards Of Care which was just re-published as SOC8 where the same definitions as DSM were published formally which may explain the doctor in the Southern Regions of the world was behind.

      Just watched this evening and found it very uplifting. Mae is fantastic, playful and in their words "pathologically earnest"; and they speak out for the genuineness and dignity of trans lives.    Rolling Stone interview with Mae which includes trailer of their show: https://www.rollingstone.com/tv-movies/tv-movie-features/mae-martin-called-out-dave-chappelle-netflix-sap-stand-up-comedy-special-1234704683/
