Who would want to go back the way things were...

Do any of you recall a time in history that all was truly well?
No one went hungry, and everyone owned their own home or had a place that was within their budget and our economy was growing and our income along with it?
A time when our children loved to learn and were the best in the world in; especially math and science?
When there were cures for all major illnesses and that everyone had a doctor or a medical plan that was specific to their needs if they ever would need one and that was able to be paid for with little or no effort?
The air was pure, the seas unpolluted and the garbage was not causing toxicity and over cluttering?

Was there ever a time; do you recall?
When politicians spoke to us about what we wanted and needed and had precise plans that we could all understand and were written under one thousand pages of documentations?
When a dollar was actually backed by gold and was worth one hundred pennies?
And when we all had savings accounts for that rainy day?

Some may remember a time when groceries would not cause us to wonder if they were safe or if they were priced right or capable of nourishing us appropriately without causing us to become obese or ill in anyway.

Who were those people; do you remember that time?
When were those days?
What were they called and on what planet did they exist?
Why do we think that anytime in history all was perfection for the ‘everybody’s’ in this world?
How can we always complain that it is someone else's fault?

Isn’t it all of ours?
I really thought we were all better than that.
Things do happen to all of us and yet, we have to hold someone responsible, who is not ever us?

What can we do?
I hear you say.
Nah, as you know I can’t really, but I do have an idea… of what we could do…
Stop blaming and having selective memories of a time that never was.
Change things in cooperation with all of us helping, since no one got here alone.

The market had a major downturn today of nearly 388 points and the first thing that was said is because no one believed that Italy will be able to pay back their loans… same as Greece. Our two oldest civilizations, how truly odd?
I’m just saying we all have a hand in how and why we have to change these things…
With brilliant minds worldwide to show us the way, why not?
That’s all I am saying…WHY NOT!
On that much to chew on; allow me to be the first to wish you all a very happy good night and to ask you to count all your blessings and to share all your overages and we will too!

And next time please be here or be square, ya hear?

X-rayed and MRI'd

No results yet, ha! (3-5 business days.) The furry kids stayed home ( first time since my night visit to the hospital) and Hubby dropped m...
