A young woman teacher explains to her class of children that she
is an atheist. She asks her class if they are atheists too. Not really
knowing what atheism is but wanting to be like their teacher, their
hands explode into the air like fleshy fireworks.
There is, however, one exception. A beautiful girl named Lucy has
not gone along with the crowd. The teacher asks her why she has
decided to be different.
“Because I’m not an atheist.”
Then, asks the teacher, what are you?
“I’m a Christian.”
The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red. She
asks Lucy why she is a Christian.
“Well, my mom is a Christian, and my dad is a Christian, so
they helped me become a Christian.”
The teacher is now angry. “That’s no reason,” she says loudly.
“What about if your mom was a moron, and your dad was a
moron. What would you be then?”
A pause, and a smile. “Then,” says Lucy, “I’d be an atheist.”

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.”
As simple as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to over complicate the issues when an easy and simple solution would be obvious.
I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice more often.
It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.
