I read through here , and going back see how many really great people we have here in the jocks boxI
I get on really well with all you great guys.
As I sit here in Scotland , I sometimes see or at least feel the presence of you all.
Wouldn’t it be so nice if we all that is the peoples of the world couldn’t be so much more ready and be more acceptable to our brothers and sister everywhere, after all when all is said and all is done we are all just looking for the same things most of us . When I was a little boy I remember BIAFRA and the starving MEN WOMEN and CHILDREN .
I was naïve enough to think one day we would end this.
Not even a single stride forward have we made.
If we went out of our front door and saw a starving child ! we would not walk past not any of us ! I already know this.
So that tells me on an individual level we care, after all we would not like it to be our child , I already know this too.
And every one else , in a position to simply help didn’t do likewise.
Why then do we have these situations still with us today ? Have we not advanced fantastically in many other ways?
Read the sermon on the mount then see what we are supposed to do as Christians . Or better still go to the Catholic church, and be told by our betters. Those supposedly better equipped spiritually at least to tell us what we should do.
Then look up GOOGLE ETC and see how much money the Catholic church has . In money (hard ready disposable currency) golden objects, property investments etc etc etc
Then ask yourself like I constantly and repetitively do WHY or where are we going repetitively Wrong here.
The Catholic Church is renowned as one of the richest organizations in the world , then read the sermon on the mount, or go to a catholic church, and listen to it being read out to teach you, what god wants us all to do.
Then sit down and wonder why we don’t .
I do ask myself this question again and again and yet Biafra under a different name is still with us ten fold along wit Slavery OH YES slavery is more alive today than it has ever been, and that is a recognized and well known fact .
Then sit down and ask again WHY .
Where are we as individuals going wrong? After all it is we , you and I , who allow it.
I have to say I don’t get it,
I don’t get it because when I was a little boy I was naïve enough to think when I reached sixty five the world would be a much better place. And some or most days I sit down and ask again simply and peacefully. Why it is still NOT. Way of topic I know I am not sorry .Alistair
