"At last I was granted permission to come to Washington and bring my friend Yellow Bull and our interpreter with me. I am glad I came. I have shaken hands with a good many friends, but there are some things I want to know which no one seems able to explain. I cannot understand how the Government sends a man out to fight us, as it did General Miles, and then breaks his word. Such a government has something wrong about it. I cannot understand why so many chiefs are allowed to talk so many different ways, and promise so many different things."

Chief Joseph  said this in an address in DC in 1879.........This government did not become corrupt YESterday y'all. It did not become corrupt with the election of Barack Obama, or George Bush or Bill Clinton or Ronald Reagan or Jimmy carter etc etc etc. The government started becoming corrupt the day the Revolution was over and people started thinkin about the money to be made and the power to be grabbed and started jockeying for position. The founding fathers had a grand dream but even it was started on the blood of the original people. Greed and an insatiable thirst for more has been the stone around the neck of this "dream" since the beginning. We learned absolutely nothing when you get right down to it. What is the difference between paying tribute to an elected Congress and president and paying tribute to a monarch? There IS no difference.
Why should I work and pay tribute(taxes) not for welfare, because I don't mind feeding women and kids, but for fancy state dinners of things I've never been able to AFFORD to eat on one of a zillion sets of gold and platinum rimmed china I've never been able to afford. On luxurious accomodations for foreign leaders who can afford to pay their OWN way. On cooks and maids and groundkeepers and chauffeurs and security guards and limousines and fleets of airplanes and helicopters....on retreats and everything ELSE politicians seem to think they are entitled to on my nickel. I seriously don't mind paying taxes to send some poor kid to the doctor or help a single mother get a better life or any of a hundred other (uhoh fixin to say a dirty word ) social programs. Yeah yeah I know there are people who abuse the system....I figure that's the price I pay to help the ones who NEED it. Which I guess is the answer that doin the same for the fat cats is PART of the price :P Sure took the steam out of my own rant there didn't I LOL

  In my opinion income tax is welfare for a whole class of already wealthy people who the founding fathers we are all so fond of thought should have to make their OWN living and serve in government because they wanted to improve the country not because they could make a killing doin it. Just think of all the things we could do with the money we spend on them.........

BUT....that's just my opinion and I'm sure y'all will tell me why I'm wrong LOL...ANNNNND that's why I don't think our country is fixin to go tits up :) so y'all just go OOOOOOMMMMMMMMMM and it'll be better tomorrow.

Politics / New conspiracy theory........
April 13, 2009, 12:07:09 PM
A SPIRITUAL CONSPIRACY


On the surface of the world right now there is
war and violence and things seem dark.

But calmly and quietly, at the same time,
something else is happening underground
An inner revolution is taking place
and certain individuals are being called to a higher light.

It is a silent revolution.

From the inside out. From the ground up.

This is a Global operation.

A Spiritual Conspiracy.

There are sleeper cells in every nation on the planet.

You wont see us on the T.V.

You wont read about us in the newspaper
You wont hear about us on the radio
We dont seek any glory
We dont wear any uniform
We come in all shapes and sizes, colors and styles
Most of us work anonymously
We are quietly working behind the scenes
in every country and culture of the world
Cities big and small, mountains and valleys,
in farms and villages, tribes and remote islands
You could pass by one of us on the street
and not even notice
We go undercover
We remain behind the scenes
It is of no concern to us who takes the final credit
But simply that the work gets done
Occasionally we spot each other in the street
We give a quiet nod and continue on our way
During the day many of us pretend we have normal jobs
But behind the false storefront at night
is where the real work takes a place
Some call us the Conscious Army
We are slowly creating a new world
with the power of our minds and hearts
We follow, with passion and joy
Our orders come from from the Central Spiritual Intelligence
We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no one is looking
Poems ~ Hugs ~ Music ~ Photography ~ Movies ~ Kind words ~
Smiles ~ Meditation and prayer ~ Dance ~ Social activism ~ Websites
Blogs ~ Random acts of kindness...
We each express ourselves in our own unique ways
with our own unique gifts and talents
Be the change you want to see in the world
That is the motto that fills our hearts
We know it is the only way real transformation takes place
We know that quietly and humbly we have the
power of all the oceans combined
Our work is slow and meticulous
Like the formation of mountains
It is not even visible at first glance
And yet with it entire tectonic plates
shall be moved in the centuries to come
Love is the new religion of the 21st century
You dont have to be a highly educated person
Or have any exceptional knowledge to understand it
It comes from the intelligence of the heart
Embedded in the timeless evolutionary pulse of all human beings
Be the change you want to see in the world
Nobody else can do it for you
We are now recruiting
Perhaps you will join us
Or already have.

All are welcome
The door is open

Politics / Just thoughts on a few posts........
March 26, 2009, 12:49:21 PM
  I'm gonna give my honest opinion here folks :P In my life I have never had any reason to fear failing a drug test but it still pisses me off to HAVE to take one. I don't even buy cold medicine anymore for the very reason it is automatically assumed you COULD be a scum-bag meth cook because you buy some cotton-pickin tylenol cold medicine. I've taken many drug tests for jobs and it is STILL embarrassing to me. I realize it is policy and safety issues but it still is.

i've known more than a few people who had hard times and ended up either gettin state help or unemployment or whatever and think that would have made them go hungry instead of gettin help just from the sheer embarrassment of havin to take a drug test on TOP of the embarrassment of havin to ask for help in the FIRST place.

Every person who has to ask for help is not a scuzbag, sometimes they are your neighbors or your friends or your family. I asked for food stamps before when I got laid off last year and had one box of macaroni left. They gave me 32 dollars.

Besides that I thought you had to do community service or somthin if you didn't have a job to get assisstance...that's the law in Missouri anyway. So they have to work one way or the other here. OR go to job trainin or GED classes.

I get mad about people who just set on their asses when there is absolutely nothin wrong with em too. I too started workin when I was little bitty. I have ALSO had hard times..very hard times and don't lump everybody who has to have a little help in one lump.
I don't know what the answer to all the lazy people is.....I can't count the number of young guys who started workin for us that weren't worth a S*&^. I'm a 49 year old woman and I' worked the butts off em and 9 times out of ten they never came back. They have no work ethic.....They want to come work for 20 minutes and take a two hour break......smoke a pack of cigarettes, and take 8 or even better 10 hours for a job that should take 2.
  So what IS the answer? How are they gonna learn to work if nobody gives em an example and whos gonna give em an example if their dad took off and moms on welfare INSTEAD of workin..the only person with money in their neighborhood is the local drug-dealer who is more than willin to use em to make HIM money......and they can make more money standin around dealin for an hour than I ever made in a week workin my ASS off?
  How do you convince that kid that it's better to WORK for a little bit of money?
How can you give them an example when they think you are stupid for workin when somebody will give it to you?

   There is hope tho. I have worked with 20- 25 year old guys who worked like they should and worked this ol broads ass off! So there are people out there who ARE settin examples...somewhere.
  You want to reduce welfare....but you don't want kids and old people goin hungry either...unless you just think screw em it's every critter for him or herself y'know. I don't like payin taxes to support some of the lazy heifers I know of settin on their butts havin kids but I don't want those hungry kids on my conscience either. That's why I don't holler about it hardly ever, 2 reasons actually. I BEEN that broke before and I DON'T want to think about innocent babies goin hungry cause their parents are worthless.

  So what IS the answer?

Politics / Cap and trade...........................
March 03, 2009, 10:55:28 PM
     They figure they can force people to change their energy usage by force I reckon. Anybody who actually knows me knows I'm all for alternative energy and anything I can do to make the Earth last longer and be better for my decendants but these strong arm tactics are gonna do nothin but put hardship on the people who already have a hell of a time keepin warm in the winter and payin utilities......most of them people who probly VOTED for Obama thinkin they really WERE gonna get a break........they are gonna go for the ol ends justify the means strategy and it's bullshit pardon my french. This will hurt a LOT of people I care about........

This is from an article on the Associated Press........
Obama wants to reduce the emissions blamed for global warming by auctioning off carbon pollution permits. The proposal, known as cap and trade, is projected to raise $646 billion over 10 years.

Most of the money would be used to pay for Obama's "Making Work Pay" tax credit, which provides up to $400 a year to individuals and $800 a year to couples. The plan also would raise money for clean-fuel technologies, such as solar and wind power.

"This massive hidden energy tax is going to work its way through every aspect of American life," Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan, the top Republican on the Ways and Means Committee, told Orszag. "How we light our homes, heat our homes and pay for the gas in our cars, in every phase of our daily lives, we will be paying higher costs."

Orszag acknowledged that the energy proposal would increase costs for consumers, but argued that the vast majority of consumers will get tax breaks elsewhere in Obama's budget package.

Politics / "We dug ourselves a hole"...........
March 03, 2009, 10:42:26 PM
and now WE have to dig out of it".......I totally have an issue with that statement made by Obama when he was having a press conference with Brown from Britian.
  What's with this we (&^* homie? WE didn't dig ANY hole.........if you are lumpin me in that we.......the Me of this WE didn't make bad loans figurin to turn a BIG buck, the Me of this WE doesn't even have ONE credit card much less the 10 the average American has or so I hear on the news.........the Me of this WE doesn't try to manipulate the markets.........the Me of this WE doesn't live beyond her means.....the Me of this WE makes do or does withOUT......the Me of this WE thinks the WEs that DID dig this hole are the ones who should be doin the diggin out and NOT with money from people who had nothing to do with it.

Politics / Freedom and Leaders.........
February 27, 2009, 02:02:09 PM
These two passages are from a book called Neither Wolf Nor Dog: On Forgotten Roads with an Elder by Kent Nerburn. I find them thought-provoking and pretty close to my beliefs........I've always thought if somebody has to give it to you it's not really freedom... I have always only followed somebody if they were worth following and even then I'm more likely to be beside them not behind them. There is a LOT of interestin things in this book, I put these here because they follow what we've been talkin about lately.

On Freedom....................................
"The most important thing for white people is freedom. The most important thing for Indian people is honor.

The white world puts all the power at the top. When someone gets to the top, they have the power to take your freedom. In your churches there is someone at the top. In your schools, too. In your government. In your business. There is always someone at the top, and that person has the right to say whether you are good or bad. They own you. No wonder Americans always worry about freedom. You have so damn little of it. If you don't protect it, someone will take it away from you.

When you came among us, you couldn't understand our way. You wanted to find the person at the top. You wanted to find the fences that bound us in. Your world was made of cages and you thought ours was, too.

Everything looked like cages. Your clothes fit like cages. Your houses looked like cages. You put fences around your yards so they looked like cages. Everything was a cage. You turned the land into cages. Little squares. Then you made a government to protect these cages. And that government was all cages. The only freedom you had was inside your own cage. Then you wondered why you weren't happy and didn't feel free.

We Indians never thought that way. Everyone was free. We didn't make cages of laws or land. We believed in honor. To us, the white man looked like a blind man walking. He knew he was on the wrong path when he bumped into the edge of one of the cages. Our guide was inside, not outside. It was honor. It was more important for us to know what was right than to know what was wrong.

We looked at animals and saw what was right. We saw how every animal had wisdom and we tried to learn that wisdom. We looked to see how they got along and how they raised their young. We did not look for what was wrong. Instead we always reached for what was right. It was this search that kept us on a good path, not rules and fences. We wanted honor for ourselves and our families.

The only time freedom is important is when others are trying to put you in chains. We had no chains so we needed no freedom. We had always had our freedom, so you had nothing of value to give us. All you could do is take it away and give it back to us in the form of cages.

You took our honor and gave us your freedom. And even you know that is no freedom at all. It is just the freedom to live inside your own locked cage. "

On Leaders..................................

"Sitting Bull was a leader. He was a real chief. People followed him because he was great. He never won any election or was appointed by any government. That's not how you get to be a leader. It was an honor you earned.

There are leaders and there are rulers. We Indians are used to leaders. When our leaders don't lead, we walk away from them. When they lead well, we stay with them.

Your system makes people rulers by law, even if they are not leaders. How can a calendar tell us how long a person is a leader? That's crazy. A leader is a leader as long as the people believe in him, and as long as he is the best person to lead us. You can only lead as long as the people will follow..

In the past when we needed a warrior we made a warrior our leader. But when the war was over and we needed a healer to lead us, he became our leader. Or maybe we needed a great speaker or a deep thinker.

The warrior knew when his time had passed, and he didn't pretend to be our leader beyond the time he was needed. He was proud to serve his people, and he knew when it was time to step aside. If he won't step aside, people will just walk away from him. He cannot make himself a leader except by leading people in the way they want to be lead."

Politics / .....and so it begins
February 27, 2009, 11:02:42 AM
  the axe grindin and poutin....the throwin up roadblocks and pet grudges......the pettiness of the United States government.

  I watch CNN every night, Lou Dobbs and Campbell Brown, the situation room. I've watched fox once or twice and msnbc once or twice..they are both too biased one way or the other. CNN seems to give a fairly balaced both sides and the middle to me.

  The politicians on both sides of the aisle make me sick. I've never seen a bigger bunch of liars and hypocrites in my life. They are too stupid and selfish to save their own country, much less anybody elses. If you pay attention long enough you will actually SEE them tell baldfaced lies about what they said or did at some time or other. ALL of them.

   One side starts yellin about "the era of BIG government is returning!" What the hell ever.... when did it ever go away? The only "big government" they are worried about is whatever gets in THEIR ass-pocket or their cronies!

   The other side starts yellin about the poor "poor people" and how this and that is gonna help them. They don't care about poor people or ANY people that don't fly in their circle. "Poor people" just keep goin to work to pay the taxes that pay the huge f-ing salaries that they collect for ballin things up and blowin smoke up peoples butts about how great things are gonna be "someday" when everything is right in their little worlds. If they wanted to "help" poor workin people they would do away with income tax and make a livin on their own like everybody ELSE has to.

   As for their pet social programs, if we the people started taking care of our own like we are supposed to there would be no need for "social" programs.

   As for this gun issue. And this fairness doctrine.........the first is my right under the Constitution. My sentiments are posted on my truck..right in the middle of the back window...a sticker that says gun control means using both hands. the second is just censorship by strong arm tactics. I am fairly liberal on several subjects but very conservative on a few particularly my RIGHT to protect myself, my family and my property from ANYBODY who would threaten it. My RIGHT to have and VOICE my OWN opinion and religion without the interferance or control of ANYbody.

Ok................rant over :P

Politics / A call to arms
February 23, 2009, 08:31:21 AM
  This is my answer to all the darkness and pessimism on this politics thread lately................................there IS no deliverance in more darkness.....discouraging words cause no change for the better...We ARE in a black time ( and by black I don't mean Obama)....but WE are this country...not the politicians in Washington.....like it or not WE create our own reality.....Every man, woman and child in America who stands for what is right whether it is popular OR easy are the points of light that will make the shadows smaller...... I am not afraid..the darkness feeds on fear....I will hold on to what IS important....Light and Love. Nothing stays forever and nothing really ends....EVERY end is the beiginning of somthing else. There is a Cheyenne saying...No nation is lost until the hearts of it's women lay on the ground.....Whether you all like this or not doesn't matter....it is my last thought on the subject.

Sam: It's like in the great stories Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were, and sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end it's only a passing thing this shadow, even darkness must pass. A new day will come, and when the sun shines it'll shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you, that meant something even if you were too small to understand why. But I think Mr. Frodo, I do understand, I know now folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going because they were holding on to something.

Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?

Sam: That there's some good in the world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for.

Politics / Whatever happened..................
January 10, 2009, 11:29:27 AM
  I've been readin for awhile and not postin about much of anything. I read all the stuff about whatever happened to the american people and the horrible liberal takeover of the US and how Obama is goin to make all our lives miserable etc etc etc.

  I'm only 49 years old but I've been thinkin about it and have realized that in my whole life nothin the government has done has really affected me all that much....because I just go on and do what I need to do which is take care of my family period. I really don't give a good (*&&^*@ what people back east in the so-called real world decide to do. I don't feel the need to notify the government of every move I make or every thing I buy. They are on a need to know basis and I figure they don't need to know.

I want to know what happened to the American people too but not for the same reasons as most people....I want to know what happened to the americans sense of independance...when did the american people forget the government works for THEM not the other way around?

When did we forget THEY have to explain themselves to US not the other way around? When did we decide they deserve to live way above OUR standard of living just for sitting around shootin the shit basically? When did we forget we can say NO to all the spending and debt? It's OUR money they are pissin off. It's OUR country they are runnin into the ground.

When did we decide it's somebody elses job to protect our lives and property instead of our own responsibility? And right?

The fact of the matter is people only have as much power over your life as you LET them have. Including the United States government. We have to have the guts it takes to stand up and say NO or quit bitchin about what we get.

Things are fixin to get REAL rough in this country for awhile...not because of any one person be it clinton bush or obama. It's fixin to get rough because of a WHOLE BUNCH of people livin a life of excess and greed built on shiftin sand that is finally givin way with no way to stop it from goin. The fact that they are committin suicide because they can't face losin their money is the only indication of how lame the life of excess was that anybody should need.

There are gonna be a whole lot of people tho who just keep on keepin on just like they've always done and their ancestors did before them and they/we will be just fine. THOSE are the Americans I'M talkin about and they do still exist.

Politics / Heres my two cents
December 16, 2008, 09:35:24 PM
   Liberals.....................people go berserk at the mere mention of the word. "OH MY GOD they are liberal!" You want to insult sombody....call em a liberal instead of a dirty sob...a liberal is worse :P

Well you know what....I'm sick of it. If it wasn't for liberal ideas I'd still be either some mans property with no rights or a worthless unmarried woman with no rights. If it wasn't for liberal ideas, there would still be seperate EVERYTHING for different races....if it wasn't for liberal ideas we would still be living in squalor because we'd still be ignorant about the way diseases and things happen. Being a liberal minded person doesn't mean you go around forcing people to kiss your butt cause you're gay or black or female or whatever. Being a liberal minded person means you have sense enough to see there just MIGHT be a better way of doin things and you think enough OUTSIDE the tight little box to give it a shot.

If it wasn't for liberal ideas we'd still be kissin some royals ass and sayin thanks just for lettin me live your friggin highness, heres all my best stuff me and my family will make do with what's left......hey wait a minute...we DO still do that..I guess this country ain't as liberal as you think it is.

Politics / I'm no Obama fan but........................
December 08, 2008, 09:28:56 AM

this is worthy of bein called important news? What the hell? Who gives a mmmmm if obama smokes? Yeah yeah yeah blah blah blah it's bad for you...costs money for medical...why don't they just do like everything else and make it illegal..Is this what this country is reduced to? " This dude is UNFIT TO SERVE...he SMOKES!" "He can't kick his addiction...impeach him!"  Boy ol Tom nailed him to the wall. Probly the biggest story of his whole career, he'll go down in history as the guy who busted the president for smokin :P ::)
Just for the record...don't smoke....never did....but don't think it's one of the seven deadly sins either :P Wasted time I'll never get back first watchin it and then writin this about it..........


Obama says he won't be smoking in White House
      Obama Pledges Not To Smoke In White House CBS 11 Dallas WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President-elect Barack Obama failed to give a straight answer when asked on a U.S. talkshow on Sunday whether he had managed to quit smoking.

In a country where cigarettes are responsible for one in five deaths and smoking costs tens of billions of dollars in health care, Obama has been under pressure to set an example by giving up his reported two-decade-old habit.

Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press" program, interviewer Tom Brokaw told Obama he had ducked answering the question during an interview last month with ABC's Barbara Walters.

Noting that the White House was a no-smoking zone, Brokaw asked Obama, "Have you stopped smoking?"

"I have," Obama replied, smiling broadly. "What I said was that there are times where I have fallen off the wagon."

"Wait a minute," Brokaw interjected, "that means you haven't stopped."

"Fair enough," Obama said. "What I would say is that I have done a terrific job under the circumstances of making myself much healthier. You will not see any violations of these rules in the White House."

Obama was often observed on the presidential campaign trail chewing Nicorette gum, which helps ease the craving for nicotine. He has tried several times to quit.

The 47-year-old president-elect, who takes office on January 20, works out daily at the gym and sometimes plays basketball. His doctor said in May he was in excellent health, often jogged 3 miles a day and was fit to serve as U.S. president.

Website www.cigaraficionado.com says Gerald Ford, who served from 1974-77, was the last U.S. president to use tobacco on a regular basis. The White House no-smoking rule was imposed by former First Lady Hillary Clinton, now Obama's nominee for secretary of state.

Politics / Does this explain it?
November 12, 2008, 03:24:53 PM
When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One's standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. ~Theodore Dalrymple


This is not just true of politics..........

I understand both sides of this Obama thing y'know. people who don't like him are seein the lies and anybody who's honest knows there were a few, I mean get real it's politics! You don't get elected by tellin the truth!

People who like him see the promises of a better day and they really WANT that better day,again if you're honest you know some of his ideas would be wonderful if they would work for real.

I'm on both sides......and NO side. Personally I have little use for government, I'm gonna do what I'm gonna do pretty much like my ancestors been doin since the beginning. Government is too big period, I don't care if it's democrat or republican or what. It's turned into pretty much the same thing we fought the revolution to get rid of.

I understand the frustration of people who try to get others to see the dark things that might happen and the stubborness of the people who say nuh-uh, will not because I really seriously see both points of view. So many people who were postin here have stopped...I don't know why..if they are so disheartened by the election or what or they just got lives and are too busy unlike us ones that lost our jobs and live out in bf egypt so we come on here to see whats up! Lol. Or if they got offended (shrug) all I know is that there are merits on both sides of the question and I really enjoy the differences of opinions on here cause like I say Thats how you learn things!

Politics / What I think...............
November 05, 2008, 10:25:41 AM
I sit here this mornin in a weird state......depending on who you talk to we are on the verge of either great times for America or horrible things are fixin to happen. To my thinkin this election shows just how little things have actually changed and how MUCH things have changed. Even 30..hell even 20 years ago a "black" man wouldn't have had a snowballs chance in hell of becomin president.....and "white" people all over the country are hidin under the bed cause now one is and they are as scared of it as the slave-owners were scared of uprisings 150 years ago. Some "black" people are rejoicing because MLKs dream has finally come to pass and some are rejoicing because 150 years ago they would've been the ones havin an uprising.
Yesterday when they thought they were gonna win the republicans were talkin about how the democrats were figurin ways to say the election was rigged....now that they've lost THEY are sayin the election was rigged......

Now we will see just how "enlightened" this country really is no matter WHAT color you are, even with all the "oh my god the "socialists" are takin over" crap this country has a real opportunity to show what we are really made of...will we come together or will we grind our axes and satisfy our grudges...........Personally I'm choosin optimism, I'm choosin to believe this is the start of somthin great in our history instead of somthin horrible, I'm choosin to believe that people have finally got the message that we are all one, we are all part of the Web,and what we do to the Web we do to each other......The Sun came up this mornin, the breeze is still blowin and it's still gonna rain later.......

Miscellaneous / Two Friends
November 03, 2008, 08:15:45 PM
TWO FRIENDS WERE WALKING
THROUGH THE DESERT.

DURING SOME POINT OF THE
JOURNEY, THEY HAD AN
ARGUMENT; AND ONE FRIEND
SLAPPED THE OTHER ONE
IN THE FACE.



THE ONE WHO GOT SLAPPED
WAS HURT, BUT WITHOUT
SAYING ANYTHING,
WROTE IN THE SAND:

TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.


THEY KEPT ON WALKING,
UNTIL THEY FOUND AN OASIS,
WHERE THEY DECIDED
TO TAKE A BATH

THE ONE WHO HAD BEEN
SLAPPED GOT STUCK IN THE
MIRE ! AND STARTED DROWNING,
BUT THE FRIEND SAVED HIM.


AFTER HE RECOVERED FROM
THE NEAR DROWNING,
HE WROTE ON A STONE:
'TODAY MY BEST FRIEND
SAVED MY LIFE'.


THE FRIEND WHO HAD SLAPPED
AND SAVED HIS BEST FRIEND
ASKED HIM, 'AFTER I HURT YOU,
YOU WROTE IN THE
SAND AND NOW,
YOU WRITE ON A STONE, WHY?'

THE FRIEND REPLIED
'WHEN SOMEONE HURTS US
WE SHOULD WRITE I T DOWN
IN SAND, WHERE WINDS OF
FORGIVENESS CAN ERASE IT AW AY.

BUT, WHEN SOMEONE DOES
SOMETHING GOOD FOR US,
WE MUST ENGRAVE IT IN STONE
WHERE NO WIND
CAN EVER ERASE IT.
'

LEARN TO WRITE
YOUR HURTS IN
THE SAND AND TO
CARVE YOUR
BENEFITS IN STONE.
