I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

THE DEATH OF COMMON SENSE











THIS WAS E-MAIL TO SO NATURALLY I
THOUGHT I'D SHARE IT WITH YOU...







The universe is more fair than we
might think, in that we get out of life what’s been put into it, even if that
is not guaranteed. A ‘semblance’ of love is a love that soon goes down the
toilet with only memories of yesteryear, and meaningless words of ‘fake
assurance’ that love’s still there.

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 financial policies don't spend more
than you can earn) and reliable 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 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a
classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouth wash 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
that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to
administer sun lotion or an Aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents
when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the 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 could 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, his son, Reason.

He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights; I Want It
Now;
Someone Else Is To Blame; 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.
