Day 353 – Choose To Live A Life That Matters

Why do we have to destroy each other instead of love each other? Why does it take a natural disaster to bring people together? Why can’t we realize that life is a gift, and there is more than enough to go around?  Why do people have to lie, cheat and steal to get ahead? Why is money the root of all evil that makes people go crazy?

It seems to me that we have a purpose on this planet, but when we don’t find it, we find the worst in ourselves, and share this poison medicine with others.  I think as people we are born with a good heart, but somewhere along the way we get lost, and lose our confidence in ourselves and our world. Why must we resort to savage beasts in order to survive?

If we can only band together, form an unbroken bond of love, help each other, we will get through the rough times and be better prepared for the joy of life to come. I don’t understand why people step on each other to get ahead. Why do people do things that are knowingly wrong?

I may seem a little naive, but I still believe in people. I believe we have goodness that is being bottled deep inside our soul. But we don’t let it out, and make our lives miserable as well as the people around us. This serves no purpose whatsoever.

In our current economy, jobs are being lost, homes foreclosed, and banks are holding on to the bailout money, with greed, as they watch people lose the American dream of home ownership. Are the politicians to blame? the government? Did they lie to us when they promised a better change for America? Our country is going down into the political toilet, and our children and grand-children will feel the full brunt of this turmoil. What future are we creating?

This is not the America that I signed up for. It’s time to take America back. Stand up and make a difference. Let your voice be heard. With all the energy you have, stand up and say”I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore”. But do this in a passive, non violent way. For violence will only makes things worse.

I realize I have more questions than answers but in time these questions will be answered.

For now, let us open up our hearts and minds as there is a great world out there. A beautiful world! Let us live in peace, love, and harmony among each other so we reach this promised land. There is so much hate and anger in this world!

Let’s change these feelings to love and gratitude and see what happens next.

Choose to live a life that matters!
