What The World Needs Now

Every day I read about a new kid or adult who kills another kid or adult, then kills himself.  What is going on?  I think I know.  People are hurting inside.  They feel worthless.  And I truly believe they feel this way because they meausre their self-worth by the material and/or monetary things they have.  Or don't have.  I don't know when I learned this, but one day I learned and accepted that I am more than my bank account or house or car or job or lover.  It's sometimes hard to always remember that, but I eventually come around every time I feel less than because of money or things.  A wise man or woman once said that misery loves company.  Well, every time I hear or read about senseless killings, I clearly see that that wise adage is as true today as it was when it was originally uttered or written.  The ONLY way we as a nation---as a world---are going to live in harmony is if people go back to loving each other.  But only AFTER learning and accepting to love THEMSELVES.  It all starts within each and every one of us.  And, since I'm a man who LIVES on BLIND & STEADFAST FAITH, I choose to believe that we'll get there someday.  I WANT to believe that.  No---I HAVE to believe that!!!   


  1. Ridiculous! Clearly you have little interest in self-awareness.

    Most all of what you consistently whine about in this blog is money and objects. Throw in some pious religiosity, thinly concealed EGO and you have Cam Jr.

  2. Anonymous, I'm channeling Michael Buble:

    "My heart is beating so
    And anyone can tell
    You think you know me well
    But you don't know me."
