Common Sense

I am 72 years old. My parents told me about Mr. Common Sense early in my
life and told me I would do well to call on him when making decisions.
It seems he was always around in my early years but less and less as
time passed until today I read his obituary.

Obituary - Common Sense

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who
has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was
since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as
knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the
worm, life isn't always fair, and maybe it was my fault. Common Sense
lived by simple, sound finan cial policies (don't spend more than you
earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not children are in
charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well intentioned but
overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a six-year-old boy
charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended
from school for using m outhwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for
reprimanding an unruly student , only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the
job they themselves failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.
It declined even further when schools were required to get parental
consent to administer Aspirin, sun lotion or a sticky plaster to a
student; but could not inform the parents when a student bec ame
pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became
contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better
treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you
couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar
can sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to
realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in
her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was
preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion;
his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.

He is survived by three stepbrothers; I Know my Rights, Someone Else is
to Blame, and I'm a Victim.


Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If
you still remember him pass this on. If not , join the majority and do
nothing.

Because this is what Jesus, would freaking do!

One night I woke up crying and feeling that the whole world was against me and I really felt all alone and hurt. This was the first time in so many years that I have cried and had so much self-pity for myself. I blamed the world and asked why they hated me and wanted to hurt me when all the while I was trying my best to be good and to be friendly.

But I realized that I was only being selfish if I think this way that the world owes me anything. Turns out that I should not really expect anything in return from people because they themselves are hurt and broken. That is why they tend to hurt other people because they believe that this will somehow lift their hurt. But what they don't know is that they are adding more to their pain and that they are spreading their evil seeds around.

We all need is love. We need patience, understanding, and forgiveness. We shouldn't hate and put our selves down because this would only make us miserable.

We can't please everyone, but this doesn't mean that we should hate them for hating us... It's hard but the best way to be truly happy is to do what is right: "to love".

So if anyone asks you, "Why are you so nice to me despite all the things that I have done to you?" Reply, " Because this is what Jesus, would freaking do!"

It all sounds so easy to do... but it's pretty damn hard... if it was easy then people wouldn't be killing each other now.
