I know this is not how I usually write so I hope you will forgive me. I am however getting really concerned about what’s going on these days.
I find that here in the US, people either can’t get enough of what’s going on in the upcoming elections or they can’t get enough of all the negative things that are happening to people like Britney Spears.
I’ve been listening to all the senators who want us to make them president, judging, putting down and criticizing each other, saying almost anything to make the other look bad in some way.
I listen to all the pathetic sad plights of the young people in the movie industry, losing custody of their kids, using drugs or as one well known movie actor said in people magazine when asked if he was going to marry the mother of his child, “It’s a love child.” Give me a break! Doesn’t anyone think of the damage this does to our young people, especially children!
Most of the movies and stuff on TV today is full of violence and often times I’m amazed when I see the plots played out. Then we wonder why there’s so much violence around us. Not that I’m saying TV or movies are solely to blame but it certainly doesn’t help.
What kind of example do these type of people set for the rest of the population? How are kids supposed to know that drugs are not OK, that having a child outside of marriage is not the greatest way for a child to grow up, that judging impairs people’s integrity and that it’s important to have gratitude in life as well as humility and that even when running a race, you can do it with dignity.
I have six grandchildren under 7 years old. I’d give a lot to see them grow up to a different kind of world.
I’d love to hear what other people think about this so if you’ve got anything to say, positive or negative, please drop me a line. In the meantime, have a wonderful, bright and peaceful week.
‘Til next time
