Does that mean racism is dead? Not at all. This is just a symbol of a period of history. It has been used to spread hate and race wars but it still is just a symbol. What this means is one more thing is removed from view so we can look like we are doing the right thing. It was fine yesterday but today it is offensive.
Many years ago they banned smoking on planes. People who didn’t smoke were happy to remove the rights of a few to please the many. Well that is until they get to your issue. Believe me we will get to your issue eventually. Seat belts, helmets, what you eat and what you can say. Sounds impossible? Try letting your kids walk 3 blocks without supervision and see if someone calls you a bad parent.
I can understand people want to eliminate guns and take money from rich people and give it to poor people. Simply because the idea sounds good does not mean it is a good idea. Making laws that bad people can’t have guns means they will ignore the laws. If one good person had been sitting in that church in Charleston at least one less person would have died. If you vote for people who say we need more gun laws then you need to demand they be honest. At least make them admit they want all guns out of good peoples hands so you have to depend on the government for protection. That is the only reasonable explanation an intelligent person can arrive at today. At least demand honesty.
Stop worrying about Ebola and start walking. If you really want to cut your chances of dying then stay out of cars. It amazes me the things we worry about because the media has decided they want to focus on it. You really want to increase your happiness stop watching main steam media.
Love this shot of a hawk taking out a drone.
We are all going to die. Stop trying to speed that up by worrying about Ebola or terrorist. Just live your life and be happy. No one ever prevented death by worry.
I didn’t post anything yesterday but then again if you had checked you would know that already.
I know your mom told you that everyone loves you and that you are the cutest person in the world. Your dad probably told you that your singing was better than Celine and Mariah put together. Maybe you were the one the other kids called too slow or too fat. What if you were too short or not smart enough?
The point is you are not very good and will not get acknowledged by the “important” people. There is a closed group of people in the world that control everything. Yes I am a member so I am allowed to tell you all the details. We have regular meetings where we look at photos to decide who sits with the cool kids or gets the best jobs. We pick the ones that get to be beautiful actresses and big time singing stars. Of course we picked Michael Jordan and Tim Duncan to dominate the NBA. We put Kate Upton on the cover of Sports Illustrated. The Koch brothers are rich because we decided they were worthy.
I am sorry this makes all the things you believed were possible in life seem incredibly unfair but that is how the world works. If you really want to achieve anything in life you have to earn our approval. If we don’t give you that stamp of approval then you will forever be locked in a state of mediocre living.
Now assuming you have read this far and your head is not exploding you no doubt understand this is completely not true. There is no audition. There is no approval process where you get a card that says you now belong and have made it in life.
Sometimes you will be picked, applauded, cheered, accepted and maybe even loved for an accomplishment. You may be yelled at, hated, stalked and even rejected for something you do in life. The question is what do you do with this information. You have to decide if you want the world’s approval which is temporary and based on works or you want the one that has already been given before you even took a breath.
I am not trying to get preachy on this subject but I believe it applies to business, leadership, family, high school, middle school and probably even in retirement homes. You need to accept that God approved of you before you did anything so clearly it is not something you can earn. Stop trying to get picked or earn some sort of approval and accept that you are meant for great things even when you fail daily.
You don’t measure up to the world’s standard but that’s okay you were never meant to be here very long. To not believe you are approved is unbiblical. Just read Jeremiah and you see a story of God’s approval completely overwhelming the world’s.
