We have made many advances in today’s world. We have come a long way from
the days of horse and buggies thus we now live in one of the most
advanced civilizations the world has ever known.
Today , we have higher buildings and wider roads, but shorter temperaments
and narrower points of view. We spend more , but enjoy it less.
We have bigger houses, but smaller families, more free time, but we spend
less of it with the people who are most valuable to us.
We reached the Moon and came back, but we find it troublesome to cross our
own street and meet our neighbors. We have conquered the outer space,
but not our inner space.
These are the times of finer houses, but broken homes. Even with all the
advances mankind has made, we have forgotten what is important. In our
rush to improve our standard of living , materially, we have forgotten
the spiritual side of our lives.
We now are beginning to see some serious problems developing because
we, as a society have forgotten what is important. The moral breakdowns
that began in the 60s are now taking a tremendous toll on our way of
life. It is way past time to get back to the basics of life and follow
the age old concepts that enabled us to reach this high level of
In today’s world what is right is wrong, and what is wrong is right, many
people have forgotten or never been taught the common sense values
that continue to work for generation after generation.
Many people think that just because they believe something , or because some
influential person in their life told them, something it is true. One
might have been able to rely on the wisdom of others in the past,
however today that simply isn’t true.
What was common sense and wisdom only a few short years ago, is now thought
to be extremism by many in today’s society. Try to inform people of
values that work and many times you will be ridiculed for being a nut
job and half crazy.
The only way for us as a society to recover from this debacle is for the
people who still remember what the time tested values were is to clings
to our guns and bibles. We have been silent too long. We need to speak
out, facing ridicule is a minor inconvenience compared to what we will
face if society doesn’t get back doing the things that work, instead of
following the latest trend out of Hollywood. Just seeing what kind of
lives most of those people lead should be enough to convince us that the
correct path in life is doing just the opposite of what they do.
Now is the time to stand firm in our beliefs, it is the only way out of this mess.
