Nothing is more silent than unfinished melodies….unexpressed thoughts…..broken dreams, dead or alive. We all think we are going to live forever, especially when we are young. We have all the time in the world. Some adults tell young people this. It is not true. No one is guaranteed anything. Not even tomorrow.
Make the most of today and what you have. Don’t wait for things to change, get better or even “perfect,” whatever that is. Don’t allow time and circumstances to make you complacent or worse to simply give up. There is no “do-overs” in our lives. I don’t subscribe to the “live for today” in a selfish manner of partying til you puke and having sex with anything that moves philosophy of the current mainstream media portrayal of our culture, which is really not at all accurate. I do say that if there is something you have always wanted to do and it’s realistic, then you need to make it happen. This does not mean you will succeed in your dream or plan but as long as it’s realistic and real effort is applied, there is hope that you will succeed.

They were wrong.
Trying again. Not one like or comment and I think it’s pretty good. I’ve noticed the serious posts about God or country usually go unread by most with WordPress.
Proud to live in America. When I was young my father wrote some kind of patriotic song that I thought was pretty corny at the time. It was during the Vietnam war era. “I’m going to walk across this land, shaking every, everybody’s hand. Cause I’m proud to be an American, proud to live in America.” Part of the chorus. I’m an all American mutt of many nationalities with most of my family coming over from Canada in the last couple generations, so my family line has not been here all that long, other than my supposed Native American line. In my many years in this country I have seen tremendous changes. Unfortunately most are not for the good. The changes in our people are disturbing.
Too many Americans have become spiritually as well as physically weak. Most people do not know the meaning of the word discipline for themselves or for their…
