What's happened to us? Is it me, or are there days when we all awake to realize that our reasons for living life the way that we do, changes dramatically with changing seasons?  When young, it's put in our heads that we all have a purpose in life.....that we are here to put a footprint on the world,and each person to change the world in our own ways......these visions of grandjur and high expectations, to me seem so hollow. Take a moment to think about this.....If we werent taught to believe these things, would anyone strive to make a difference?  What would happen to individuality and potential?  Sequentially......the people of the world would destroy themselves in a blazing hail of doubt and indescretion?  Sounds like a bad turn of events?  Well, think about this......what of war and famine, pestilence and violence?  If not out for self as we are all bred to be.......would we retain so much greed that we would allow our people to starve?  Our brothers and sisters to be shot down for someone else's benefit?  Would we care so much about someone else getting ahead of us in life or stealing our fame and fortune that we would bludgeon them to death with violence and hate?  The point is......dont be another member of the family of molds that we all play our own role in preserving.  Break the mold, and learn to live for someone other than ourselves......then, I believe that the true point of life on this earth, will present it's self to us.  Remeber......nothing we do that will benefit so many people and places will be easy.....it takes patience and perseverance.
