Lots in the news today about senseless violence and “what the hell is going on!” More to come on this in days ahead, but really, very simple… we’ve lost our moral compass – all of us. And I’m not talking about church, God, Christ and the rest. I’m talking about Main Street. I’m talking about community. I’m talking about family. Morals are taught at home, in the school, church and yes, Main Street. We gathered on Main Street to celebrate and teach community. We taught values, not as a “lesson” but just the way we lived. You want to get down to it… ship jobs overseas, build superstores, destroy mom and pop and YOU LOOSE COMMUNITY. That’s reality my friends. And when you loose community you loose ALL THAT GOES WITH IT. But don’t blame “corporations” and their bottom line, we enjoy the benefits of the erosion, in the price way pay for goods. But be warned, that’s not the only price we pay… the other are senseless killings by kids who are simply “bored.”
I pray to God in the next election we get someone to stand up and say, WAKE UP PEOPLE, You are the problem! We are the problem!
Send a billion to some remote country that can’t get it’s act together, and deprive our kids of INCREDIBLE SCHOOLS, state of the art sports, music, arts, technology… and you get kids who want nothing to do with the building. Make it a sanctuary with the best, freshest, food on the planet, the greenest lawn for sports, the most advanced tech lab you can find with every musical instrument under the sun and QUALIFIED, EXCITED, WELL PAID teachers… you won’t get bored kids. Is that so difficult to comprehend?
Be warned, this next election isn’t about liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican, it’s about finder a thinker who will tell us the truth about OURSELVES! THE SCARY, SCARY TRUTH about how we can either destroy us or take us into a new tomorrow. It’s not church. It’s not God, It’s not family, It’s not school… It’s Main Street – you and I, mom and pop, values from the rocking chair. I’d like to say you learn half of it sitting around the fireplace, but hey, they tell me in Los Angeles you can’t have a real fireplace anymore,,, enough said.
Not angry, just real. I blame me before all.
