If hate is a fire...

CONCLUSION: Remove the logs and the fire goes out! Something to have a think on... Pile a bunch of logs and light a match... Fire burns... Throw in a few more logs and the fire burns hotter... Keep piling logs and soon the fire is burning out of control. Remove the logs...stop adding them...and the fire goes out. If the flame has nothing to consume...it goes out...completely... Extinguished... ... HYPOTHESIS: IF logs = labels and labels = reasons humans use as excuses to hate and reasons humans use as excuses to hate = skin color tribe religion political affiliation gender age sexual orientation country of origin native language economic status immigration status etc... and IF...THEN... fire

Children's books meant for adults...

Hypothesis:: Aesop (Aesop's Fables) and Dr. Seuss wrote children's stories with messages meant for adults. We teach our children and read to them with fervor but often neglect to apply what we want them to learn in our own daily living. We forget the lessons when we grow up. In our zeal just to survive or succeed, we forget that life is better when we are good to each other. What if it just started raining? ... What if it just started raining?

Healthy citizens don't need doctors...

Bottom line up front (BLUF): Yes, there is a cure. Individually and collectively, without the assistance of the government, there is a cure. This part works for both categories of insured and uninsured citizens. Sure, it's complicated but...on the surface, maybe we have more control than we think...it isn't easy and requires both discipline and effort. But humans are naturally built to find great reward and thrive under discipline, hard work and effort. Climbing Mount Everest, winning Gold Medals or building a successful business doesn't happen by sitting on the couch and asking others (least of all your government) to do the work for you. It hurts at times...but it's worth it! Lazy, entitl

Sometimes the ball just doesn't bounce your way...

"I've missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed." (Michael Jordan) No matter how hard you try in life...sometimes, the ball just doesn't bounce your way... CONCLUSION: Yes, the past gets a vote--that's why today matters. Because tomorrow beckons... ... Point 1: No matter how good life may get for a season...a single moment can take it all away...(so don't take any measure of success for granted). What then? What about tomorrow (see Point 2 below)? Point 2: No matter how bad life may get for a season...a single momen

What about the other 3 passengers?

Did United Airlines make mistakes? Yes. Was the situation handled in a superb manner? No. Am I defending United's actions? Not all of them. But nor do I condemn them. Not all of them. The system will (should) decide. A few questions worthy of rational, unemotional dialogue... What happened to the other three (3) passengers--the one's who begrudgingly complied with legally binding instructions to give up their (paid) seat and disembark from the airplane? The passengers who did what they were supposed to do... The passengers who followed the rules...even though they didn't like them... The passengers who put the interest of others (the rest of the airplane) before the interests of self...e

Be the change...

"Better to light a candle than curse the darkness." (Confucius) Something to have a think on... Education powers thought. Thoughts generate action. Actions fuel the planet...for better or for worse. Light a candle today. ... Even if those around you curse their "bad luck"... Light a candle...choose hope... Even if those around you blame "the system" or "others" for their woes... Light a candle...choose to be good... Life isn't always fair... Cursing the darkness won't help...makes the darkness stronger... Sometimes life circumstances appear to smile on the self-centered, greedy, evil and corrupt... Cursing the darkness won't help...makes the darkness stronger... Sometimes "they" get away wit

Be kind whenever possible...

"Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible." (Dalai Lama) Something to have a think on... Education powers thought. Thoughts generate action. Actions fuel the planet...for better or for worse. Be kind today. ... What if it just started raining?!

The value of money...

CONCLUSION: Maybe it's how we spend our life that makes the man or woman. For those that earn, find, inherit, win or stumble on discretionary money--lots of it--maybe it's how they spend their money that makes the man or woman. If there is any competition in life worth really believing in maybe it's the one that challenges all of us--each in our own way and as we are able--to simply make the world a better place. That's a competition worth entering! ... Money is nice....but it doesn't make the man or woman. To be clear, this is not an indictment of money in and of itself--not even the having of lots of it...but rather what people become when they place any value other than its monetary worth
