The Folly of Mankind...always the same throughout history and right up to the end. Sounds hopeless and yes I will rely on the only One who can fix it. I'm only too aware of my own failures and the failures of others I depended on. Why should I expect any more or less from mere humanity? Doesn't anyone else see the destructive bent of the leaders of mankind throughout history? Why do the worst among us, more often than not, dominate the power centers of the world?...Would I make the same wrong, corrupt choices if I were in power?...probably, I have to admit. Would you, could you solve the worlds problems?...don't kidd yourself for a second...you're just as weak minded as the rest of us.

It's just as well if you can at least influence your own small sphere of the world by showing some kindness to your fellow man in spite of it all. What more can I really impact? We own and drive 4-Cylinder cars (not SUVs), we turn off the A/C at night and let the fresh air in. We let it get cold overnight in the winter...it's a small token for a "westerner" when my 3rd world brethren suffer with none. It's all so meaningless says the "Preacher" in the book of Ecclesiastes. This book gave me the best perspective...take a look for yourself.
