Can we Bring Back the Good old days?

As I child I lived in a small community where people looked out for each other. Crime was almost non-existent. Neighbors helping neighbors. A neighbor cooking and giving dinner to another neighbor over the fence was a common occurrence. Most people farmed and they shared with each other. There was no need for anyone to go hungry.

You had a few who would try to reap people’s crops before they did, but it was never on a large scale. Teeth and tongue would meet at times but generally people got along. Every child had an Uncle and Aunt who wasn’t even blood relative. Adults protected children and children respected adults. Gone are those days. Is it too much to ask for a return of those good old days?

Don’t let Others Decide What’s Best for You

Stand up and take control

We live in a world where some people design the rules and others simply fall in line. Society put a lot of pressure on women and trying to live up to society’s norm can lead to unhappiness for a lot of women. An unmarried woman may find herself being asked, “When are you going to get married? When she finally does people start asking, “When are you going to have a baby? Because after all that’s what a woman is supposed to do.

If the marriage fail to produce a child, people are quick to point finger at the woman. “Oh she can’t have children or “Oh, she is barren. This is putting it mildly for women have been called mules for failing to produce children. In some cases it is not even her fault but rather the man, who is unable to impregnate her. However she gets the blame. I say to women, don’t be pressured by society’s’ norm. Live the life that makes you happy. Do what is best for you.

What Stories do You Love?

I am a lover of books. It does not matter the genre as long as the story is interesting I will read it. I read almost every book in the ‘Nancy Drew’, and ‘Hardy Boys’, series. I have read books by Agatha Christie, Louis L’Amour westerns, Harold Robbins, Mills and Boon books, Harlequin book, books by Mickey Spillane and by many other authors.

Whether it is romance, detective, mystery, historical novels, or espionage stories ( I used to love those)it didn’t matter. Once I started reading I didn’t want to put the book down until I knew how the story ended. I spent many nights up later reading because I couldn’t wait until the next day to read the ending.

Sadly I don’t read as much as I used to but I know I have to make the time to. What stories do you love.

Are all Men Created Equal?

In the beginning, I believe it was God’s intention for mankind to be equal. In fact creation began with only two people. If we believe this logic, it means every person on earth is in some way related. Sadly in today’s society not everyone believes in a world of equality. In fact the need for some to feel more important than others has created a world of inequality, injustice, discrimination, and hate which has being passed down from one generation to another.

The thought process which drives this behavior and the manner in which people treat one another is almost like a mental disease for which a cure is difficult. Sometimes it seems the most we can do is say thank God for the people who can see past color. They help to make the world a better place.
