Lately I have been thinking about the turn of the 20th century...
Even though there were rough times, bootlegging, mobs, the Depression, it just doesn't seem to me with what I have read in history books that times back then were as dysfunctional as they are today.
Everyone is so mean...so judgmental...
Kids bully, get aggressive, mean spirited, and bold...isn't being a kid....a teenager hard enough?
Adults...get road rage, shoot someone who ticks them off, feels entitlement...what kind of examples are they?
Politicians...forgot that they "work for the people" not the other way around. They want to take GOD out of everything. They have forgotten the Constitution and what our forefathers stood for.
I hate to watch the news anymore...there are murders, home invasions, mistreatment of animals/children...oh don't get me started there.
Ok...get me started...
I get sick...sick to my stomach when I see photos of abused animals. They can't defend themselves. My heart cries out and I love my pups all the more. Is that possible that people are that cruel?
Animals are loyal...gentle souls...great companions.
Kids are innocent, funny, awesome. Listen to them and hear what they say and look at everything from a child's perspective. It is amazing how they interpret things.
Kids and animals should be able to walk down the road (together) without fear. Adults should be able to handle disputes in a friendly fashion.
Our children should say the Pledge of Allegiance, be able to pray openly, play Red Rover Come Over, Tag...all those fun childhood games, but no one is there to teach them. They need to be innocent children for as long as possible.
Life should be like Mayberry.
Sometimes progress isn't really progress.
This week our church has 70 hours of prayer, I went today...I prayed for this country, I prayed for our politicians, I prayed for our military, I prayed for my family, I prayed for some specific things and I also prayed for our new preacher, our youth minister and our children's minister for they are guiding our children...the future adults of tomorrow.
Whether you agree with me or not doesn't matter, these are my feelings, this is my blog and living here in this great country of America, let's me have freedom of speech. For this I am grateful.
