“I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.” – Leonardo da Vinci
I wake up every morning and wonder what the day will bring forth. Will it be a quiet day or a day filled with horrors? A day of school shootings, or car-jackings, of bomb threats, mall shootings & knock downs or just overall disdain for human life. The images, embedded in every news story the media sees fit to throw in our faces. I had actually stopped watching the news over the last few days until all hell broke loose again.
And what can we do about it? Do we turn off the television, the radio, the internet? No matter where we turn, we are bombarded by these horrific acts, of wars waged on the innocents. I am losing my faith in mankind, in man kindness. I never thought I would see a day that people would have to fear going to a shopping mall or children walking into a school building.
Our country is in such a state of unrest and it’s up to us, we Americans, to take a stand and get back what is rightfully ours. We can not allow government to take over, we can not let the villains surround us and we can not, under any circumstance, give up!!!
Like the title says, Reflecting, on what’s around me and hoping for, no working on, making a better tomorrow. Will you join me?
