                                          Paradox of Our Time.


These are the days of quick trips, disposable nappies, throwaway

morality, one-nights stands, overweight bodies, and pills that

do everything from cheer to quiet, to kill.


It is a time when there is much in the show window

and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can

bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either

to share this insight, or just hit delete.


Remember, spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.


Remember, to say a kind word to someone who looks

up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up

and leave your side.


Remember to give a warm hug to the person close to you because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent.


Remember to say “I Love You” to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.


Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for some day that person will not be there again.


Give time to the Lord, give time to speak, give time to share the precious thoughts of your mind.


(George Carlin– written as a reflection after the Columbine High School deaths)Part 1
