Heard that a woman was delivered a snake along with her new appliance. It literally was taped to the machine. This is not a snake making its way into a product unseen, no it was possibly deliberate. It made me think about how much junk is delivered into our homes, via legitimate sources. Reading Ben Stein today, was refreshing....other's think the same way that I do. Much is put upon us. We have no doubt in what is "really" going on. Oh, would it be so easy to be mesmerized by a brilliant orator, who uses even the worse situations to his own advantage. Some people recognize this, as what they term, "the end times," as mentioned by Ben in his well-written post today. We have the constitution, and are guaranteed certain freedoms, (rights) given to us by our Creator, which we will fight to preserve in this great country.One is the freedom of religion for all. When there is a clash, we do not annihlate our own. In fact, we do not dictate our faith to other's, nor do we tell them how to dress, how and who to worship.The fact is, people are angry when they are not "free to choose". Is there a danger to radicalism? Your seeing what happens when a philosophy of extremism is exercised by the masses, who have the appearance of a violent nature, are needy, and often have been misguided by a dictator with unsound doctrine. No, it is not alright to kill your brother Christians in your land or any other. That does not generate a state of peace.We did not intervene, as helpless as it was to watch, at what has transpired in your country. Taking "out" our unarmed representatives is a different matter. Have you no respect for those who care for you? At what cost can you afford to keep and maintain your violence? Some have forgotten the deeds done here in our country, and some are deluded. The majority assuredly have no need of reminders. We can forgive, and we do. What we believe in is our strength. A strength stronger than hate. There is no apology for sustaining even those that hurt us--for a greater cause. What can you learn from a nation that gives at every turn, is a faithful helper to those that call upon her? Our objective is still the same -- to live in peace in a world that is more and more in need of its example, sharing our beacon of hope. Our strength is not man-made but comes from a higher authority. We exist in a state of assurance--that we will not fail, but will endure. Remember the movie, Independance Day--4th of July, when the president has a conversation with the alien that comes to destroy us. The alien said "no peace". They came with another purpose. We are brothers--living on the same planet, striving to make this a better place for all generations, and all generations to come. Some say that all indicators point to the "end times." We've been living in the "end times" since Christ ascended to heaven, and "still await" His return. Until that time, we have our instuctions while waiting-- fasting, praying and almsgiving. That's what we should all be doing. We are confident that a loving God will take care of the rest. "In God we trust". When all is said and done, what we are called to do, is to remember our calling. Feed the poor, and hungry, and love one-another, here and in all nations. We cannot "fail" at doing this at any cost.

Many will wonder how I came up with this very unusual title. Who in their right mind would want to blog on this topic. A mom, grandmother, or anyone who cares for small children, worldwide. What if I told you to kiss the boo-boo is the "cure all" for all ages? That has been my philosophy for and the basis for this blog. What am I, I am a boo-boo kisser. I make it all better. I am sharing my thoughts and views, not intended to offend any reader, but to express the lessons life has taught me. These are solely my experiences and reflect my feelings! Looking for others to share as well...
