Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint. - Mark Twain

Present, Future?

Awaiting 3 more ratings...

And always there will be the ambitious and aspiring and " progress," technological advancements, gadgets and doo- dads to entertain and enthrall... But, meanwhile the gap is widening between the priveledged and despairing and this gap is a chasm - an unfanthomable abyss. As society too, tosses their silly perks and seductions at the greedy, - the lucky ones those ever willing to grab... Though actually, it's one step forward and two back it's like the words of the song, " every form of refuge has its price..." while here, with amenities, living comfortably the young are still dazzled by fashion and pop culture- their days spent attaining more and more... As Biblical words are forgotten- they've become a distant echo asking, admonishing, " What profit a man if he gains the whole world, but loses his own soul?" And leaders seeking world domination arrogantly disregard the value of children's lives... while the sick languish without healthcare former workers lose their homes, even veterans, entire families, join the destitute- with no where to turn- no help in sight. And yes, it's dog eat dog always has been, as the morals of previous generations continually erode... People still say " it's the signs of the times." growing more jaded, numbed by the news. And there will be wars and more wars, plagues and disasters- the insanity of a new world- not brave, dystopian that is, until God's saving grace.
