You get involved in your daily life, meetings here, shopping there, this and that..... Life happens. And then your world comes crashing down. The phone rings and everything you hold dear seems about to evaporate. This call happened to me, when my Dad fell, and ended up in the hospital awaiting emergency surgery. Helpless and hundreds of miles and an sea away, you are left sitting by the phone awaiting the doctor's or your family call. Minutes seem like days, days, like months, the wait is heart wrenching.
During the time you are waiting and envisioning the worst you come to realize the small things no longer matter. What matters are those you love and cherish. Maybe we aren't so petty after all, but just need that kick in the pants to remind us! At this time, Dad has had hip replacement and the prognosis is good. With God's will we will enjoy together life and love for a long time coming. Every now and then we each need a good kick in the pants!
Freedom Of Speech
- Come'ya Conservative
- People can wrap themselves inside the Constitution, spew anything they choose to say, stick their tongue out in your face and declare you can't do anything about what they said. They have Freedom of Speech. Right? Yes! However, Freedom of Speech, comes married to the responsibility for ones own actions. If you say it, write it or draw it, be ready to defend it. Cower in silence, you abdicate your freedom and allow the bullies and censurers to win.
