  1. I think there are so many people that feel the same way as you do. But then again, as you said, just look at all those “reality shows” out there, people watch them. I don’t know who they are, but the fact that they have been airing for so many years, says it all.
    I could go on for hours about the state of this world, I did blog for years about it, but I gave up and hoped that maybe just living a lifestyle and maybe making a difference locally or within our family would have an impact. I was just getting too depressed. At one time I had hope, lately, not so much. We have become desensitized to inhumane acts. Wag the dog?

    • People seem to have forgotten what is important and what isn’t.
      Behavior and attitudes once unacceptable are considered the norm
      now – the desensitization you speak of fueled by the religion
      of Meism.
      I too could go on for hours but it is important to live life as
      though we mean it – to embrace what is good, to smell the roses
      along the way for the gift such things are and to contest those
      that are not.
      Lifestyles can and are an example – whether a negative or positive
      one they are the measure of a man or woman based on the one they chose
      and have the ability to produce a butterfly effect.
      That is why I say to others to be well in body and spirit, to stay
      strong, and when called upon to do so keep punchin’.
      We cannot change the past, but each day we find ourselves in will
      become the past and contribute to the future of the next day – that’s
      worth thinking about.

      • “We cannot change the past, but each day we find ourselves in will become the past and contribute to the future of the next day – that’s worth thinking about.”

        I love that. One small act kindness can have a ripple effect. Who knows where that one tiny gesture might lead?

      • Something I think that is commonly understood but often
        overlooked.
        In most instances it takes significantly less effort to
        do the right thing than the wrong thing, but even if it
        doesn’t the results are what’s important, and as you
        say we can’t always know what a single tiny gesture
        will lead to.
        I’ve heard it said that it is better to err on the
        side of caution, the same can said of doing the right
        thing.
