Let's Listen To Carl Sagan Again...!
Maybe now more than ever, it would be a good time to heed the message put out by Carl Sagan before he died!
So much crazy stuff is going on in the world that hopefully some part of this message gets through to someone!
For the first time in a really long time, I have to admit that I am getting very concerned about things! More than concerned, I would say jumpy is a better choice of words. Food shortages are becoming a very big problem, gasoline prices are almost to the point of being ridiculous, prices of medicines and health care are beyond the reach of many families, and the job market is in the toilet no matter what the "manufactured numbers" show!
There is more hate and fear and distrust of our fellow men than I can ever remember! We have to start finding some way to do something positive about our situation...at least, that's the way I feel!
At my age, the last thing I want to see happen is for our country to get involved in another war. I don't want to see anymore of our troops left in a foreign land. I don't want to see any more politicians getting rich by creating situations where the rich get richer, while the average working folks struggle to make ends meet!
In short, I would like to spend my waning years in peace! Peace for my country, peace for my friends and family, and peace for those in the rest of the world that truly want it!
Coffee on the patio this morning! A little "snakebite" medicine is there on the side in case you want to brace your coffee a bit!
