Very nice looking truck and one that ruled the road back in its day, back in the time of this truck was a simpler time……. or so we think? But a very different time than today. Within today’s world of big technology, we are so spoiled that we have become so lazy as well. With social media and how we use it, plus the fact we all have a device in our hands every minute, that we post anything and everything, which does nothing but create even more drama all around us. Back in the time of this truck, there were no cell phones…… oh Heck!!! there wasn’t this thing we know today as ” social media”.
Through social media, we hide behind a device as we portray ourselves, someone, we truly are not. Social media at first was something good, as it was a way to stay in contact with loved ones near and far, and with friends that we lose contact with through the years, but like anything touched by the hands of man, we have taken this technology into a level with a mind of its own. We have totally forgotten how to interact with each other, as we hide behind the device and pretend like we care? I have actually seen and made comment to, people sitting across from one another in an office, texting each other instead of actually chatting? What’s that old saying? ” Cat got your tongue”, I think this saying has become reality as we all have forgotten how to chat with each other. Without actual interaction with each other makes it very hard to be any kind of social with each other. We all surely can judge each other, but how can you properly judge someone, without getting a good read of the one you are judging, like the one you may be judging could have even more hidden issues than the ones you hide deep within.
With another September 11th coming and going once again and as we remember those poor innocent ones who perished on this day in 2001, these people went to bed the night before to get a good nights rest for the next day of work, but what they didn’t plan on was………. that they would become victims of such a tragic event. Now I say victims simply because a few mentally deranged Individuals took it upon themselves to commit this terrible tragedy, making these innocent souls victims of their heinous acts. Why did these deranged Individuals take action to such a heinous act? There is only one true answer and that is the fact that they were so overwhelmed with hate, they could not see clearly through the clouds of their judgments. These Individuals learned to become this hateful from somewhere, so unless we identify where the hate came from, it then makes it difficult to end the hate from taking such a heinous act again. It is really sad that some will resort to this amount of hatred, especially when we are not truly like that, we are loving and caring people and when we truly feel the warmth of the love of Jesus within us, there will never be any hatred and we will share that love with each other.
Within today’s society as opposed to yesteryears society, you do not know your neighbor as you did in earlier societies, back in time within each society back then, you knew who your neighbor was and not only that, you helped each other as well, you bartered with each other, as within this society people don’t even know what the word barter means? Barter is basically sharing of something you may have your neighbor may not, as they then share something you may not have but could use from time to time. This would never work in this society, as all the trust, honesty and responsibility are gone from existence today, without responsibility there will never be accountability and without them, forget about the dignity as this keeps us all trustworthy and honest with each other.
Old truck or no old truck, it can and will always run smoothly when we maintain it properly, just as this vehicle makes all of it’s visits to the Doctor’s office to keep running smoothly, we to need to make our visits to the Doctor, so we can at least be as healthy and happy throughout this journey, without letting our issues go unnoticed until they fester to the point that, we become someone for we truly are not and become full of hate, instead of full of the love of Jesus Christ, who loved us all not just equally, but unconditionally as well, so we all can walk this journey as he did happily and confident, while we shared our love with each other, with zero sights of any of the hatred that consumes us today.
” We all struggle with varying degrees of issues we may be going through, so if we simply are kind we just may help another without even knowing it”
” Love is always within us whether we know it or not? Hatred is learned from somewhere at some time?”
” September 11th, 2001 is a day to never forget so we can move forward with each step better and stronger throughout this journey of life”
