Our Imprint on the World

We Lay The Pattern For Our Children To Follow

What kind of example are we setting ?

Look around you

Aren't you tired of seeing the bad instead of the good ?

I know I am

In the newspaper and on the news

All over the internet

Why haven't we learned from our past mistakes ?

We have the technology to do almost anything

But we can't stop fighting one another

For no reason

The killing has to stop

It is not more police or more cameras to follow our every move

To catch the bad people doing wrong

It is time we took matters in our own hands

We start by taking responsibility for the error in our ways

Who are we kidding?

We are not living the life we could be living

One reason

We stopped caring

Not just for one another

But the most important person of them all

Ourselves

Wake up America

It is not the presidents job to solve all the worlds problems

It is easy to find flaws in the man in the oval office or anyone else for that matter

You have to admit he is trying

Making mistakes along the way

Isn't that what we all do?

But we are ashamed to admit

I wouldn't like all my goof ups for family to see

Never mind the world

If we start in our own home

Making sure our children are loved

Not just by buying them the newest apple i phone because they wanted it

By showing them day in and day out we care

Isn't that the basic responsibility of a parent

Then watch out that they don't do anything to foolish

They also will have to fly solo

We can't hold their hand forever

Hopefully what we have taught them each day

Some of it will stick

Aren't we forgetting something ?

That all the men and women and children in jail had parents

Where were those parents when they needed the help the most ?

So it's not too late

Start right now

Be a better parent

Then we will have better children

In the end they will teach their children

That is two generations of change

See how the world slowly becomes a better place

Don't let anyone try to fool you

It is a lot of hard work and complete dedication

Not an over night success story

But a story your Great grandchildren can tell their children

How life is...

How life could be...

With a little insight and love

The smallest bit of knowledge can go along way
