Hope you enjoy the posts.. I am going to share a few!
Today, we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense,
who was with us for many years. No one knows how old he was; his records
were lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered for some valuable
life lessons such as "Knowing when to come in out of the rain", "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 earn) and reliable strategies
such as, Adults, not children are in charge.
His health began to deteriorate rapidly when it was reported, a six year old was charged with
sexual harrassment for kissing a classmate, teens were suspended for using mouthwash
after lunch and teachers were being fired for reprimanding an unruly student.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job
that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.
further eroded when the forms came out. Forms for parental permission to
apply suntan lotion to students or give them an aspirin, but could not inform
parents when a student became preganant or wanted an orbortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live when churches beacame businesses,
and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a real beating when
you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home,
and the burglar could actually sue you for assault.
The final straw came and he gave up the will to live,
after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee
was hot. She spilled a little on her lap and was awarded millions in a law suit.
Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents Truth & Trust,
by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibilty, and by his son Reason.
He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;
I Know My Rights,
I Want It Now,
I'm A Victim,
Someone Else Is To Bame.
Not many folks attended his funeral;
few realized he had gone.
WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO...
