Quote

“We must rapidly begin the shift from a “thing-oriented” society to a “person-oriented” society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.

Inspirational Poem

My Daily Creed

Let me be a little kinder
Let me be a little blinder
To the faults of those about me;
Let me praise a little more;
Let me be, when I am weary,
Just a little bit more cheery;
Let me serve a little better
Those that I am striving for.
Let me be a little braver
When temptation bids me waver;
Let me strive a little harder
To be all that I should be;
Let me be a little meeker
With the brother that is weaker;
Let me think more of my neighbor
And a little less of me.

Boy Reacts to News of Mothers Pregnancy

This video posted on Thursday August 28 now has more than seven million views and has received mixed reactions. To people like my self it is just an innocent video of an intelligent little boy’s reaction – as children often do – to the news that he is going to have a little brother or sister. Not surprisingly those whose mind cannot allow them to see past skin color has chosen not to see the video for what it is but instead have sought to launch a mean and racial attack on the mother. If only these people would realize that there is no joy to be found in hating others. God is a God of Love. Hate will get us no where.

Child Accidentally Kills Instructor

A nine year old girl accidentally shot and killed her shooting instructor at a shooting range in Arizona yesterday. Charles Vacca the thirty-nine years old instructor was teaching the girl how to fire a Uzi Sub-machine gun when she lost control of the weapon and shot him. Below is a brief video of the child and instructor before the tragedy happened.

The question that is utmost in my mind is why was this child allowed to handle such a powerful weapon. Why was there a need for her to learn to shoot it. It was a terrible decision with equally terrible consequences. I hope this serves as a lesson to all parents. Let children be children let them do children stuff. There are other forms of recreation besides shooting a gun.
