the whys

My best friend posted something on her facebook wall today, here’s the post…

“Don’t like gay marriages? Don’t get one. Don’t like cigarettes? Don’t smoke them. Don’t like abortions? Don’t get one. Don’t like sex? Don’t have it. Don’t like drugs? Don’t do them. Don’t like porn? Don’t watch it. Don’t like alcohol? Don’t drink it. Don’t like guns? Don’t buy one. Don’t like your rights taken away? Don’t take away someone else’s.”

I find it very baffling, how the United States was founded on the principles of independence and freedom can/has evolved into what it is today. Seems to me the purpose was a “live and let live” agenda, this has not been my experience here. Is it perhaps, time for a do-over? 😉

Why is it so difficult for people to live their lives without trying to control what other people do or don’t do? What is “right” for you is not necessarily so for everyone else. Do what serves you and leave the rest to the rest.

Food for thought.
