I would like to take this opportunity to share my thoughts on our media.
According to Webster, the definition of despicable: "deserving to be despised".
The hourly coverage of Charlie Sheen's personal and professional destruction is unnecessary.
Our fallen Warriors deserve this air-time. These heroes make a difference in our world. When one falls, our Nation should know. We should see their faces all over our televisions and laptops. We should know their names and the names of their families, so we can lift them in prayer.
My hope. My goal. is to change this sickness America has somehow been infested by, which has totally warped our priorities. Why do we choose to pay attention to people who are living in self-inflicted despair, rather that focusing and applauding those who do good? When my children were teens, going through Teen-Turmoil... I always reminded them that self-inflicted wounds hurt the most. I reminded them, they always have choices....and those choices have consequences. Good and bad.
America...please wake up! Please make choices to embrace those who do good. Yes, I am well aware we all fall from grace time to time and we do not deserve to be shunned. Question... when we fall, what do we do to pull ourselves up and brush ourselves off? Do we attempt to learn and forge forward? Do we accept help and in return help those in an hour of need?
May Almighty God give us strength to be the best we can be, to seek positive role models and show our appreciation to those who make an effort to do good.
