"I agree with you 100%. I'm reminded of the time in WW2 when one of our men was in a fox hole and shooting at the enemy in a nearby location. Each man had prayed that God would prevail and that he should not be killed in this war. The one man…"

Another thought bubble ...

Hope ya'll have a fabulous day before reading this, not that this thought bubble is about to alter the good fizz you might be feeling at the moment ... I dare not propose such significance!  If only to add to the fizz :)I have been following the Mike Brown / Officer Wilson tragedy - with cautious curiosity.  Hard not to have an opinion - but the dichotomy that stood out for me was the religious plea on both camps.  I am particularly placed in a particular state of mind for the absolute absence…See More

It must be part of human condition ...

My day started good as most days usually do.  I try to choose the attitude I want to work with for a given day.  Today was going to the public library and attending critical thinkers presentation.Interesting topic on the agenda.  The genome project national geography team did - in bringing about the understanding of genetic ancestry. At some point of the presentation, I teared up because of a comment one of the participants said - " ... we are 99% similar genetically but we kill each-other on…See More
