WE HAVE HOPE
A cranky opinion for
Cranky Opinion Saturday
The following is the opinion of a cranky old man. Opposing positions are welcome (wrong, but welcome) but please, no name calling. And that means you…you big stupid-head
Every once in a while I come across an article which reminds me just how fortunate we are in the good old USA.
We worry and complain about unemployment, minimum wage, immigration, welfare, cost of health care, cost of living, civil rights, God in school, inflation, pollution, global warming, gun control, fracking, education, and on and on and on.
Don’t get me wrong, these are all important issues, and as a nation we should strive for the very best for all our people and for the planet.
I read about a woman in a North Korean prison camp who was forced to drown her new born child. A man who was born in a North Korean work camp who had several fingers cut off because he dropped a sewing machine…he was relieved it was not his whole hand.
I read where there is almost no wild life left in North Korea as anything that can be killed and eaten is killed and eaten.
There are People around the globe who suffer hardship and indignities for the way they worship God, or for even believing in a God. There are women who are not allowed to learn, work, choose their life partner, drive a car or even be seen in public. There are homosexuals that will never leave the closet.
There are people without food, without homes, without dignity, without hope.
While we worry and complain about unemployment, minimum wage, immigration, welfare, cost of health care, cost of living, civil rights, God in school, inflation, pollution, global warming, gun control, fracking, education, and on and on and on, make sure we never forget what we do have.
We have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
We are far from perfect, but at least we have hope.
The preceding was the opinion of a cranky old man, and not necessarily that of management…Mrs. Cranky.
