Things I DONT know about

A little switch to what I have been writing about today. Things I do not know about sometimes have a stronger pull on me than those I do know about. Wow... with that said, we move on. I don't know the reason why we have to fight everyone else's wars when we have civil issues ourselves, right here at home. We have prejudice and hatred based solely on ones appearance or culture or race. We argue constantly about religion and who is and who is not going to heaven. We even find ourselves arguing if there even is a heaven to go to when we die.
We have starving children and adults right at our own doorstep and yet we send billions of dollars worth of food to other countries. We have families living in torn apart buildings with clothing that barely passes as clothes. I don't know about the reasons or circumstances that brought those sad people to where they are. I don't know if there are people trying to help those less fortunate than I am.I don't know why there has to be suffering for our young people when we toss away more good food and more clothing sits in our closets unworn than some people wear or eat in a week. I don't know why we just don't go and give to them all we toss away without even a second thought.
And I don't know why life sometimes takes from us the very reason for our existence. My Sheila left when we had so much more living to do. She took with her the reason I got out of bed every morning. I don't know What it is that I am supposed to truly be doing now. I don't know where my life is taking me or what road I will end up on when all is said and done.
These are just some of the things I Don't know about.

this is so true Darrel. Why are our countries putting so much into other countries while our on people suffer.
The US is a lot worse than Canada but we too do the same thing on a much lesser per capita basis. We have more social reforms than the States, which means we are much less capitalistic and more socialistic, politically speaking. Sometimes that is a good thing and sometimes it is a bad thing.

You are very right in your words here, Magdalen. I think the focus needs to be that we assure our own are taken care of. If not, then we may be too weak to stand and come to the aide of others when the time truly calls us to.
I thank you for reading this and for taking the time to respond. It is greatly appreciated. Darrel
