Sorry to have bothered you with old and common concerns. Next time, they’ll be new and unique. :rolleyes:
I respectfully disagree with you. Define all I can do. Define all YOU can do, or anyone else. Perhaps the genesis of my frustration was the very inability to alter those things in my/our world that are most painful to my mind these days.
Being a good father or decent person in no way affects the issues I stated specifically.
Oh c’mon, Anth. Pardon me while I contemplate life’s more difficult issues, and allow myself to believe that they are NOT in any way too large for me. Would it make you feel better if the sum scope of other people’s attentions never went beyond whether or not Barney is real? Please. Jesus wept… I’ve got news for you- it’s the large things in life that are worth thinking about, considering, pondering and yes, becoming despaired of sometimes.
No argument there, but I didn’t post my distress into the Pit so I could point out a litany of Susie Sunshine Happy Moments around the globe. It is IMHO that there is small happinesses and infinitely small justice, day to day. The larger issues that I raised will not- again, IMHO- be adjudicated wtih any real justice. It is the very nature of how we are to each other as humans that distresses me so, and brought about that rant.
I happen to disagree. History repeats itself, with heart-breaking regularity.
Doing good day to day doesn’t erase the pain of realizing that the larger issues seem to be so badly skewed- evidenced in my O.P. By the way, this is in no way an attack on you personally, but you’re the only respondant so far, so I used your quotes here of course.
