Talk is Talk.......

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

After the most recent episode of religious hatred resulting in death and destruction, a Rabbi I saw on television said what I was thinking.......talk is just talk. As long as actions do not change nothing will be different when we hear about the next tragedy. So I got to thinking that this certainly true in any venue or anything that happens with regularity. Life is complicated but at its core very simple. 

I have lived in a small quaint town for seven years now. I like it for many reasons, not the least of which it is not much is different than it was 100 years ago. And then I ride somewhere in the car, listen to the radio and the world is back and it isn't one I recognize or like any more. I don't want great, I just want civil and kind, and thoughtful would be nice too.

Hello Sheila,  Sometimes, I am not a fan of news, I think the bad things spread to more bad things in my opinion.

Sheila,

I was thinking about the same thing yesterday and this morning.

If you happen to watch BlackKklansman on TV (the movie is free), just wait until the end. I know Spike Lee has a history with the KKK but it made me burst into tears and openly sob. We don't want to believe our country is like that. But there is a that scary element and under our present administration it is growing to frightening proportions.

I thought the Rabbi was very inspirational as well Sheila Anderson and then immediately after him  a partisan political figure came on just seething with hatred blaming The President of the United States. How absurd! This president has done more for Israel and the Jewish people than any president in decades.

Good afternoon Sheila - it would be great if we could get back to civility.   That is not too much to ask.

Morning Sheila.

The small town I moved to over three decades ago is now a major city in Arkansas.  Pity, that small town feeling has left the area.  I just can't understand why someone would take harsh action to anyone they don't know just because of their religion.

Bob, if you listening to the president speak to good people on both sides after Charlottesville, and watched the neo nazis then you would get it. I knew trump long before he was president and absolutely degrade my people and apparently yours.    Sheila

Civil, kind and thoughtful....wouldn't that be wonderful. I'm not liking the way things are today either Sheila. It frustrates, saddens and angers me.

It does seem like the world is full of hatred and anger. I know kindness and civility are still out there, though, so those of us who practice them need to keep doing so.

I think there is too much Political Correctness out there to call out the evil that is present and come up with a realistic strategy to rid it from our shores.
