As I close my eyes and drift away to a land where there is love, health, peace, and blessings. I wanted to take the time to think and reflect.
I decided to observe what took place during the Kavanaugh hearings, this was partly due to my skepticism surrounding the claims, and the timing of the accusations, as a political ploy to obstruct the Republican nominations. As I have said earlier, I remain neutral to the nomination, but these thoughts that I present, go beyond the nomination - to evoke thoughts about ploys, or smear campaigns.
The testimony revealed the stories of simple "he said, she said." There was no evidence or basis for the claims. Now let it be known, just because I have said this, it does not mean that a woman's claim to harassment of any kind should be ignored, or not worthy of discussion. But when cases and claims of the magnanimity are presented to the public as a civic duty, then there has to be some evidence. Testimony is integral to the case, but does not encompass a whole case.
We can relate these thoughts to any case. For example an application for a service, or a university, college, or job application. The desire to attend begins with a testimony, saying that you want to go there, or you what to apply, and so on. However the application is supported with documents, and individuals who can also support the application. In the same sense the Kavanaugh hearings were testimony, there was no evidence. They were emotionally charged, and heavy, appealing to ethos.
The thoughts shared could be related to anyone who has suffered, or knows what harassment feels like. But at the same time, Brett Kavanaugh denies the claims. The complexity, and politically charged case is why I urge women who have suffered from any form of abuse, harassment, or sexual harassment do not use this case as an example to promote women's issues. This case is not representative of you. It is party politics, obstructions, and schemes at play.
My thoughts to share with love & kindness! :)
