i think i’m channeling John Lennon, but please, please, please (as James Brown would often sing), keep Yoko Ono far, far away from me.
i was just wondering:
What if all of those folks believing they were Christians, instead of protesting, defaming others, said (sorta like Jesus), i forgive you, i love you, may Lord have mercy on your soul, and then they let Him take care of it?
What if all of those folks tearing down statues, yelling and spitting at the opposition, screaming denigrating attacks, said to the opposition, we don’t agree, but you are human beings like us and we would like to talk to you about why and how we differ and how we might get along?
What if, the media reported good news one day, just good news (even though i know they couldn’t stand it for more than one day, i would like it to be most of the time) instead of seeking out sensational, soap opera crap, and digging for dirt?
What if all of those who inherited big money; those who became filthy rich from their businesses; athletes, entertainers, and politicians who have made crazy amounts of money tried to live on several million and gave the rest to helping people across the country and the world who are down and out?
What if all of those folks throwing rocks at our current or immediate past presidents (as well as several others) quit and started working on programs and initiatives to change things for the better?
What if all of our congress persons quit worrying about getting reelected and serving those who give them money and started working for the good of our country and all humankind?
What if everyone quit worrying and attacking all of those people and establishments they perceive are making it difficult for them and their beliefs stop and just worry about how they are managing themselves in their relationships?
What if everyone, i mean everyone just started trying hard to live by the Golden Rule? You know, the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you?
What if…oh Lord, it ain’t gonna happen, i know but just think about what if everyone quit trying to fix everyone else and actually focused on fixing themselves?
Nah…wouldn’t work unless we shot all of those who don’t agree with us.

My goodness what a concept. I took a few moments to imagine what if. Guess what? I don’t know if I could take all that touchy feely stuff for a whole day. That old Catholic liturgy came to mind “Lord I am not worthy…” 😀 Bless
It would certainly make this world a better place to live in!!!
By the way, what is happening to General Hatton’s statue in the town square of Lebanon??
Ivwas wondering the same thing about the statue in the square in Lebanon? Let us know.
Enjoyable read Jim
