Realizing I was born in what SEEMS like a
Distant Foreign Land & in another time we have now arrived at the
gates of what ?
Perhaps this is the "Threshold Of Our Dreams" or is
it really a "NIGHTMARE" straight out of a Edgar Allen Poe opium
dream...or maybe it's really ,"Dante's Inferno?
Well regardless of what
you call this BEAST..."Paradise Found" it is not,Paradise Lost it
From the moment we were conceived our Mothers, our
Fathers, our Family & yes even the majority of their Friends held
to the thoughts and Prayers that the World we would Inherit from them
would be a FAR greater, better, promising & loving one than the one
they were born into...
My own family tried to balance the Love
of God, the Belief in Prayer, in Education, in hard work &
Perseverance that if we had a TALENT we could be anything we
wanted.....If you wanted to become a painter, a sculptor,a writer, a
dancer, a musician, a farmer, a sailor,a merchant, a banker or a
minister all you had to do is believe....and be willing to sacrifice for
those goals or ambitions....
In those days SCHOOLS weren't being
ruled by FOOLS....they actually TRIED to teach us & give us the
TOOLS that we needed to succeed in life ....Wasn't perfect...but the
effort was honest.....Our Parents, our Teachers wanted us in many ways
to Fulfill many of their own DREAMS....Aspirations and yes that our
Prayers that our Tomorrows because if the FAITH we would Inherit from
them...that we could actually find our way home...
& father would go without to make sure we were properly fed,
clothed, educated, respected , respectful as well as kind & well
mannered....As to whether or not they were successful...I'll let you be
the judge.....But their Efforts were honest & true....They were
believers & they wanted us to be even Stronger Believers....They
wanted us to SOAR to heights they could only dream or fantasize about...
Well what the hell will be OUR LEGACY? Poverty, Narcissism,
Materialism, Socialism, Hopelessness, Fear , Doubts , Godlessness &
the Rise of Jealousy, Hatred & the DEATH of AMERICA, our Freedoms
& our Spirit....
As a nation & as a declining
society we should be ASHAMED of our efforts, our trials & our
lessons.....we failed mightily....and we failed miserably ....but most
in this now LAND of IDIOTS don't give a damn.....I wonder if they ever
did? I will let God be the judge & jury...
