Greetings everyone. Lately, it seems to me that there are a ton of threads about proving the existance of a god, or I am athiest so I am super
Why is it that no one can ever seem to get along anymore?
In this day and age, with all the hate, violence, poverty, and sickness, why aren't more people reaching out to those in need instead of just
satisfying their personal desire to Burn someone on the internet.
I prepose a challange for all members of ATS that actually read this.
Instead of joining in on the next "My God can beat up your God" debate, how about we devote that time to sharing with someone, helping a person in
need or just plain carring for somebody close to you.
You know, I live in a really small town. I grew up in a big city and my view of small towns was one where everyone knew each other and was
Well just the other day, I was visiting a buddy of mine and we were just sitting on his front porch, drinking some beer, playing our guitars and
singing songs. An older couple was out walking their dog and passed in front of his house, we stopped playing for just a minute, waved to them and
said, "hello". Just a simple friendly hello. This couple looked at us like we were about to blow something up! They were honestly scared to death
when we greeted them, so much that they turned and walked away so fast that you would have swore that they were running. I hope I am not the only one
here that thinks this is sad.
This is my point folks. The world today is full of people that are scared for one reason or the other. The media has done such an excellent job in
creating this fear. IT IS UP TO US, to change this world for the better. Every little bit of effort will do wonders.
So, in conclusion (I know it has been a long read, sorry) I say that we put aside our differences and start to work together to make this world the
place it once was. Smile at a stranger, or say hi. Give someone in line ahead of you at the store that extra penny in your pocket that will give them
exact change. Tell your family members you love them. Call up an old friend. Do one thing every day that has a positive affect on someone else's
life. It is my theory that together, one random act of kindness everyday from each of us will save this planet.
Won't you join me??
Peace, Love, and Laughter.
