HOPE LESS HATE...Fran's Friday Forum...!!!

By
Title Insurance with Patriot Land Transfer, Inc.

In the space of a short Blog Post there isn’t enough time to fully explore any particular subject adequately...Having said that, I and millions of other Americans, are trying to get our heads around what causes incidents like the recent school shooting in Florida...

 

Let the politicians debate ad nauseum, additional gun controls vs mental illness concerns, etc...THEY GET NOWHERE FAST...!!!

 

A LACK OF HOPE...rooted in HATE for those who think differently than we...is the root cause of all this disgusting HOPELESS behavior...IT IS NO ACCIDENT that the symbol we use for HOPE IS THE ANCHOR...!!!

 

Looking back at the past shootings...schools, concerts, nightclubs, workplaces, and other similar events usually where large numbers of people gather...some of the perpetrators seem mentally disturbed, some are ‘loners’, some are seemingly intelligent individuals, so when looking for a COMMON THREAD...ALL SEEM TO LACK HOPE...They have lost their ANCHOR, or never really had one...

 

AS HUMAN BEINGS, ALL CREATED BY THE SAME LOVING GOD...OUR PARENTS BECOME OUR FIRST ANCHOR DONORS, teachers are their extensions, and caring friends, relatives, and community members all contribute...THIS IS IN AN IDEAL WORLD...

 

WE DO NOT LIVE IN AN IDEAL WORLD...OUR WORLD SEEMS TO HAVE LOST ITS ANCHOR...AS A NATION WE ARE FRACTURED, and HAVE LOST SIGHT OF OUR GOD...HE HAS NOT WANDERED FROM US...WE HAVE DRIFTED AWAY FROM HIM...BUT...

 

AND THIS IS THE GOOD NEWS: LIKE THAT FAMOUS PICTURE OF JESUS STANDING AT THE DOOR INVITING US TO OPEN (note there is no latch on His side)...WE CONTROL OUR DESTINY...AND IF IT SEEMS EASY OR TRITE...HE MADE IT THAT WAY TO SHOW HOW MUCH HE LOVES US...!!!

 

AS WE PRAY FOR THE VICTIMS IN FLORIDA, AND THE CONSOLATION OF THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS AND FRIENDS...LET US NOT forget our own anchors and the anchors of those around us...WE ARE our brother’s keepers...!!!

 

HAVE A GREAT AND BLESSED WEEKEND...!!!

Hi Fran- I think we're all searching for answers and there is no "one" answer. But I do agree, so many have lost our anchors...our connection to a family...our faith in a higher power.

The only answer is God back in or families and our schools. Gods way is the onlyway that leads to truth and life.
