Daily Prompt; No Fair

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/09/20/daily-prompt-fair/, DP, Daily Prompt

Tell us about something you think is terribly unfair — and explain how you would rectify it.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us FAIR.

When I was a young kid, many moons ago, I thought life was not fair. When I had to share my toys with my brother. This wasn’t fair at all.kids Not getting to stay up as late as my parents did and being told to go to bed, not fair at all.

As I became a teen I thought I should not have a curfew. Why did I have to come in by midnight on Friday and Saturday nights? I was almost a grown up. After all, I was 16 now.

The rules at my home when I first got privy to driving was, no teens in car until I had much more experience driving. I thought that was the most unfair. How was I supposed to show off my wheels and the fact I was of driving age?keys

Now that I am considered middle-aged I see a lot that is not fair. Why is it there are homeless people?homeless

Why is it that women who need personal hygiene items, you ladies know what I mean, and yet they are so expensive?

Why is it that we say we have no money and yet money is tossed on lottery, alcohol and drugs?drugs

Why are schools so expensive that parents have to fret and worry on how they are going to pay for those school books?Math Books

Why is it that we spend so many big dollars on classes that aren’t needed in college? Or why is it that you graduate college and can’t find a job?graduate

Why is it that nursing homes, hospitals and health care cost so much when we all know that elderly generally do not have the big dollars to pay for it?nursing-care-model

Why is it that one normal funeral cost at the least six thousand dollars? Couldn’t that money be better spent when we are still alive?funeral

I know there are questions with varied answers to these and I didn’t  post this to get discussion groups started.

It is just that our world is difficult to make ends meet. I see it in my little corner of the world. I am sure you know someone who is struggling in an area of their life also.

Life doesn’t seem fair, but believe me when it is all said and done and we leave this earth, God will show us all the answers.

I can’t fix it. Who am I? Only one person. Today’s problems are bigger than us. I am more than willing to voice my opinion. I am able to join a cause, but alone I can not fix these huge issues.

    • here they are called filler classes. maybe a computer class thrown in or a public speaking. when I was in nursing these two were added in. Public speaking in my opinion had nothing to do with nursing

  5. As teenagers we think thins are not fair because we wanted more. It is all perspective. We have our outlook as we think life should be and if it does not meet our expectations , it is not fair.
    But through politics and governments life really is not fair and people are treated differently, which IS not fair.

  7. Many of these things you mentioned have one basic root cause… the sinfulness and fallen nature of man. This world would be a far different place if sin had never entered into it. I praise the Lord that when we turn from our sins and trust in Him as our Lord and Savior we can look forward to a far better place where sin and injustice no longer exists.

    “13) These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of [them], and embraced [them], and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
    14) For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
    15) And truly, if they had been mindful of that [country] from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
    16) But now they desire a better [country], that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.” (Hebrews 11:13-16)

    Lord bless you my friend. My prayers continue.


    • I agree, there is so much going on in our world that Satan is the leader in. Greed, money, drugs, child abuse. I could go on and on, but for me, I will lead my life the way I am living with my goal being in heaven. Thanks Rob


  8. Wonderful writing with great feeling ! I don’t believe we are to fix too much of anything but, certainly to improve whatever we can. LIFE isn’t suppose to be fair or it wouldn’t be a test! You’re an A plus student! xo
