Random Things about Ohio

Depending on what direction you live in state of Ohio – is how you decide whether you consider yourself southern, mid-western, western, or eastern. or just pure northern Yankee. Also depending on what direction of the state you live in – decides how much snow is normal for winter, if you live closer to lake erie or the rivers, you get more. We believe Bigfoot exists, and have stories of sightings dating back to before the 1800s, in the Canton/Akron area. Weather has a 50% chance of being accurate every time its predicted and has a 25% additional chance of doing neither opposite thing and just doing something else entirely. we also have local lore about werewolves in the country side myths and don’t get me started on the things you can find in cornfields and such at night. Don’t drive alone at a night and do not follow the lights into the fields.

What does it mean to be an Ally?

In this context, it means to side with or support.

To my fellow folks, you’re not an Ally if you’re not making an effort to either side with or support them. If you can’t understand that you’re missing the point by advocating, by using your voice to drown out your own guilt or inappropriate actions, or, even worse, at the cost of their own. Then you need to stop, re evaluate yourself, and ask why you are considered an Ally.

If they aren’t the ones calling you one, if you have to remind yourself to act like an ally, you’re not there yet. It’s important to be an Ally. Not just play at it.
