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
We stopped caring
Not just for one another
But the most important person of them all
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

Gypsy Rose Lee Leaders change the world for the better. Making progress for a better way. It takes a lot of guts to stand up against other people who think differently. Thank you so much for all your comments. I hope you are taking care of yourself and finding love all around you in such a difficult time. Hope your night turns out to be something special.

Life is an ever learning process and we must always be careful not to be pulled along with the flow but use our gotten knowledge to help ourselves.

Three Keys Every day I look for good things happening. I can't wait. I get excited for other people often. Even if they don't know me or their life has no bearing on my life. In some strange way I feel it does. Happiness from other people trickle into my heart. I crave and enjoy it so much. My own happiness seems to blossom. I think it is a chain reaction invisible to the eyes but very real. Thank you for reading and sharing. I appreciate every thought. Your gifts come in words. They feel like huge waves that swallow me up at the beach. Only to refresh me. Invigorate my body and soul. Have a very special day.

I enjoyed your aspirations.
The bottom line is, its up to us, we are the masses. If we all just took one action of solution acting, can you inagine what fantastic results we would produce? I think it would take our breath away. All the best to you DreamOn.
