HATE AND GREED
We are the majority and I'm not talking race, gender or religion.
"We" being those persons who " hold these truths to be self evident that all are created equal".
So why does the minority appear to be in charge at home and around the globe? A minority made up of hatred and greed? Those who are zealous in their belief they call religion or non-religion but actually is nothing but selfishness.
I grew up in small towns, trusting my neighbors, living without fear and believing that good would triumph over evil. Differences of opinions were just that and we could still pass on the street and smile at each other. Now this actual majority cannot pass on the street without fear of raising a topic of disagreement.
My children and grandchildren are growing up in a world where the minority are portrayed by the media as the ones in charge and those of us filled with hope and love for each other and our country and respect for those around the world, are cheated out of our beliefs by politics that divide
In the words of the recently departed Rodney King, "Why can't we all just get along". And the answer is "Because the greedy politicians who want their golden ticket retirement packages won't let us and neither will the journalists who need their greatly exaggerated breaking stories."
Now my friends, on this closing note, I shall be away for about a week. Might get a question of the week ready for Monday, but forgive me if I don't. Meanwhile, have fun dissecting my above diatribe. Bye-bye:)
