What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world?
Wow, this question took me back in my seat! A chance to make a change for everyone living in this big world? Does this mean this can be bigger than holding the President’s office? Bigger than the government? Wow, what a chance of a life time.
The first thing I would do is change people’s views, getting them to rid the thought of, me first, and changing it to, working for and with the people. The world in my view is still a great world, but changes have happened and we all don’t think alike any longer, so this would be a must.
The second thing I would change is God. God must be made first in each and every living mind. To realize we need God in our country, in our hearts and minds, is a very important thing to me.
Next, let us come together and settle the wars and frictions around the world. Let us find ways to get along and to share what we have with others. Let us take the word greed out of our vocabulary, and bring love and a bigger peace than we have ever had before.
Next, I would like to bring family back to the meaning of family. What is family? A unit of people living together, being there for each other, helping each other, lend a listening ear, and providing a helping hand, and yes, sometimes needing to provide a tough love, so that we all grow to realize adulthood and all of the challenges it can bring to our own personal lives.
You are sitting back laughing as you read this aren’t you? You are telling me that I am dreaming and living in the past. It is alright, with me, if you do not agree with my thoughts. I believe in the memories I have, of a close family and a school where the first thing I did after making our presence known in class, was to say The Pledge Of Allegiance.
I remember having to help tend gardens so that I knew I was going to have food on our tables during the hard, cold winters. I remember earning privileges to have a bicycle, and then a car. Nothing was given, all was earned.
I remember my parents buying what they thought I needed for school, and if I wanted extras, I needed to have a part-time job, to get these. Respect was taught at home, and carried with me through-out my adult years.
Yes, I may be asking for the impossible, but this prompt is I can make a change, and this is what I would wish to happen.
These are my thoughts only, and I, in no way, am trying to change your own views and thoughts. Have a great day!
