Give Us This Day
But, something went wrong and we as a race of humans have never been able to get back on track... or so it seems that way to me.
Today, we wrestle relentlessly with simple things. Simple things like the pleasantries used in saying hello or goodmorning. Heck we can't even find a way to just look another person in the eye and crack a fake smile.
Look, I'm not perfect and I too have violated some of the aforementioned from time to time, but we must bring an end to these atrocities or there will be a payment demanded at our end, and if that should happen, hopefully it won't be like writing a check we can't cash.
Still puzzled? Here are some additional pieces to the puzzle.
Well, just a couple of days ago, a professional baseball team in my neck of the woods got into a total bench clearing brawl, over pretty much nothing. These "professionals" who we adore and pay handsomely, literally erased every single parent's speech to their kids about getting along, fair play and having respect for each other. Some may say who cares... but I say, remember there were thousands of kids in attendance at that game; television and via the all powerful internet, watching and absorbing it all. This discounted behavior will become more than a fairy tale, it will be recreated and played out line by line, by one of our sweet and innocent little ones on the soccer, baseball, fields at parks and playgrounds worldwide. Seeing is Believing!
I also remember when people would stop their busy day and come together for justice and everything that represented what was right. They could actually sit down at the table and hold a discussion about unpopular issues and then somehow miraculously agree to disagree and even shake hands before departing.
Wow, talk about setting and being an example of maturity and wisdom.
So... what went wrong with those of whom, we the people elected? Those who swore to represent you and I in our cities, towns, states and congress? Now, they publicly argue almost to the point of violence and lie, cheat and scheme their way back into re-election. Or, did they just, NOT get that particular memo?
Just a few years ago, on the eve of one of America's greatest tragedies (9-11), we're faced with dealing worldwide with one single, little known man in Florida, who has decided to burn the Quran in front of the world to make his point. This situation has and still effects everyone from the "Whitehouse, to your house". This could possibly have brought an end to all the hard work and dedication we all have invested to make this world a better place live.
Maybe these things tend to reopen the spiritual portals of our concerns about why, what and how man's existence will impact on this world's demise. Perhaps this is just another one of those daily reminders or wakeup calls, as we like to call them.
Listen..., lets not ponder on just the what, how, when or if... it will happen. Let's focus perhaps on change.
Although, some are saying it will happen this year or later.
But please remember and consider this... This world came to an end, for everyone who died today.
Be and make the very best of each and everyday you have and live each and everyday you have, as though it will your last......
