Where did the people who once cared disappear to? When did we as a society lose our interest in making this a great nation? People once cared about making a difference.
Politicians today are people who are looking for a career. How many of these politicians are looking to actually care about you during their career? It starts locally, and unfortunately leads all the way to the White House.
We as a people need to be more understanding, and have a better more comprehensive understanding of the world that we live in. People in Northampton County are torn right now over the Gracedale situation. I am yet to hear numbers presented from both sides of the argument. When I say that, I mean actual numbers, and not those created for specific agendas.
My favoritism lies solely with the fact of having what we need, for what we can afford. Many times, people forget about the cost behind the things that they desire. On every blog that I have seen so far, I have been disheartened to see that very few people actually write about their thoughts or feelings on the matter further than that of a superficial level. I have seen bashing on certain people and groups, but not any solutions to the problems. If solutions are provided, they are merely statements without facts to substantiate these claims. It was my hope that those individuals, who would look to these blogs for a space to express themselves, would indeed actually do just that.
If people do not take the time to do any more than merely read these blogs, then there is absolutely no purpose in these blogs existing. It is information sharing, but it should not be from just from one person’s point of view. We as a people, who are deeply committed to accomplishing things so that our children and grandchildren may inherit a life better than ours, will only do so when we decide that is what we actually want to do.
I only ask that those people who attend this blog start talking more about things that have been presented, or present some of those ideas to me so that I may post them. After touring many blogs in the Lehigh Valley over the past five days, I became disturbed and have not posted anything. Nothing of what I have read was anything of substance from those who had authored the statements or opinions.
Please take the privilege that your parents and grandparents have given you, and author your thoughts on this blog to make a difference in the world that we all share.
