We have choices. We may be too scared to choose them! I understand. We , everyone of us , chooses our own path to follow!
I’m 74 yrs old. If someone had said to me 10 yrs ago, that I’d be planning to run for the Presidency of the United States and enroll in Silver Sneakers, I’d have thought they were dreaming . Those two plans are ” in the works”, as “we” say. If you know me, you’ll understand my fear, my self doubts and my tenacity to persevere and make my plans reality.
For one choice , I’ve made a passionate commitment on my own , realizing that the actualization of my dream requires you, my dear followers and a SuperPAC dedicated to supporting me , my passion for understanding our World and my desire to visit our planet and our Country , America, all 50 States.
My second choice is easier, I merely have to walk a few blocks, pay $18/a month for a supplement to my United Health Care plan , choose a few exercise programs tailored to my physical requirements and start exercising.
One goal I control 100%. The 2 nd one depends upon you, my dear followers and those who have yet to join our Revolution. We don’t destroy systems, we fix them, one “tweak” at a time. We’re human, we don’t do perfection, we do fixing , trail and error and move forward. Some times it’s a giant step for man and a small step for mankind. It’s what we do, moving forward, slowly perhaps and deliberately, to get to that giant step forward for mankind too!
Since I’ve had time to think, I’ve used my time trying to understand myself and as an added bonus, I see you too! I have empathy for you, my followers, the advantaged and the disadvantaged.
Those with funds need to understand the many who are struggling to survive. “We the People” were stronger and more fearless before the Recession wiped out most of our more aggressive and confident traits. Sad, very sad. I understand the less fortunate because I have seen their decent into worthlessness first hand. I know their struggle to survive and feel compelled to give a helping hand and the encouragement to assure the successful return of dignity to someone in need.
With compassion, the less fortunate can find a way forward, too. If not entirely out of poverty, with self confidence and a return of dignity anyone can take responsibility for themselves and make a choice to move forward or stay in place. Either is a choice. Both require the inner knowledge that the choice is available to be made. Then, It’s up to “the State” to provide the Social Safety Net and job growth “we the People” require to survive well!
The very wealthy have similar choices to make. They can remain wrapped in the comfort of their wealth, devoid of all empathy for others, or they can exercise their choice to be their brother’s keeper and move forward in our World, trying something new. Not perfect.
New ideas, in fields to numerous to detail once again, to be improved upon and with out destroying what was. The recognition that we have the power to move forward taking baby steps, is enough to begin our conscious effort into creating the next phase of our Technological advance into the 22 nd Century.
We have a choice. We can sit back and acknowledge our misery or we can take small steps toward creating a better America and a better global community.
It takes one person to see themselves and those we love first. Then we can scale up our new found empathy to help each other, one person at a time.
See you at 11 am when we’ll continue our chat.
“The heart and pulse of the Middle Class “. All inclusive, no one left out! See yourself and dream big!
