Well, I am now 60 years old and qualify for a lot of seniors discounts, hum, hadn’t thought of that. Hey if I can get a discount on anything well I am all for that. I think it is generally assumed that with advancing years comes grerater wisdom, I think I must have been short changed on that one.
It is very seldom that I check the blog stats anymore, I not sure why but I did check them out a few days back. I was shocked to see it is zooming in on 400,000 hits. I was equally surprised to see there is now a map on the site and a list of the countries readers are from and you are from all over the world. I am thrilled and honored and am left speechless.
There is something well, I have always known but this experience has confirmed it so much more strongly in my mind. The world is just full of wonderful, kind and loving people . Here through the blog I have been honored to meet many of you. Each and every person that has visited the blog has made their own contribution in their own unique way and I thank you all.
When I say people are people, I mean that with no exceptions. Nothing changes that be it skin color, religion/faith, shape of the eyes, sex, culture……..
At any time (here comes a Bill statistic) about 90% of the populations are just regular good, honest caring and hard working people, doing their best to get through their day. About 5% are what I call Earth Angels, those that are willing to step up, go the extra mile to help another. I believe God delivers them to be at a particular time and place to do his work.
That leaves the remaining 5% with are just plain old jerks. These are the ones that we see, read about and hear about every day. Sadly the ones that seem to draw the most attention. They draw our attention so much so that often that we forget that other 95% being the vast majority of people.
We also often forget that the dividing lines between these groups is not carved in stone. Depending on the day, the situation or circumstance we regularly shift from one group to another. YES, that means that YOU (and I) have in the past and will in the future again find ourselves in that jerk group. It is oh so easy to see in others but so much harder in ourselves. I challenge you to sit back and honestly think about that.
Never forget the world IS FULL of wonderful people
