A Holy week like no other

The face of Jesus Christ will come to us when we least expect it, also it will take shape in anything for which we look, just like upon this trunk of the tree and complete with the crown of thorns on his head. Jesus came to us and walked this journey here with us, he taught us many things, all while showing his true love for each of us. Jesus was the son of God and the fisher of men, as he led us away from temptation and toward the light of the path of righteousness. There were many things written within the Bible which was the words of Jesus, things that he described would happen through our time within our journey’s, some of these things would bring us into the darkness of Satan, but it would also test us so we then would learn from the error of our ways, to become better and stronger on this journey through life, in order to be able to get to the light, it is the darkness that strengthens us, only we let the fear of the dark cloud our judgments and become lost through the clouds.

The darkness of Satan although it may seem longer then it truly is, really does not seem that long, as the good from the light of Jesus will always be much longer than any darkness that may come to us. With faith, it is the hope that the darkness doesn’t last, so the light will come, bringing us closer to that path of righteousness that Jesus had shown us. ” the fear of the darkness is real and brings pain, but the light will lift the pain ending the fear”. Even Jesus was tempted by the darkness of Satan, but as he stayed true to the faith of his father, the hope kept guiding him toward the light of the path of righteousness.

The darkness is upon us now, it is silent and invisible, it has taken shape as a virus that not only is making us sick but to the weak, it has become a death sentence that will end this journey of life. True it is very sad, but what is even sadder is, the ones who are succumbing to this virus, are dying alone with no one by there side. The best way to get through this is, not only having the true faith in Jesus Christ but having true faith in yourself to fight this fight, keep your immune as healthy as you can, while social distancing from each other, even you yourself may not know if you are a carrier or not? Even though this social distancing part may be hard on us for the ones we hold close, the power of prayer, the power of faith will bring us all the hope we need, so we then can see the true light, that will take us to the path of righteousness, so we all can move forward along our paths of this journey through life, in the peace and happiness, that Jesus wanted for us all when he came and walked this journey here with us.

 

” The journey of Lent is a forty-day journey ending the week of Holy Week, with Good Friday  to bring us to the light of goodness for all”

 

” The darkness never lasts as there is always the light to bring us the happiness away from our fears”

Get out and explore………

Now that Winter is almost fully in the rearview mirror, it is about that time to start switching gears and getting ready to get out within mother nature once again. Enjoying all the true beauty that is around you, enjoying the sweet smell of the fresh clean air, without the smog and funky smells of the city. Get the kayak ready and stretch out the camping gear, plus this season I will be attaching a go-pro to the kayak and taking some great video for my U-tube channel, maybe even attaching to my backpack for some hiking video as well, I also thought I never would, but I have also started an Instagram for another platform to show my adventures in mother nature and share some great pictures as well as videos. so now you can follow my words here, then my adventure trips on my twitter, my Facebook page at tireless freelance writing, my Instagram and let’s not forget some great video on my U-tube channel as well.

I can’t wait to get out within mother nature and leave this broken society in the rearview mirror for a while, spend a week or two within the woods full of adventure without listening to all the drama at every turn, the biggest problem within this society is, we all get so wrapped up within the unwanted print news or the tv news, that we forget there is so much beauty all around us. Then there is this thing called work, yes we all need to work to make the ends meet and take whatever adventures we take, but it is also good to step away from the daily grind, step away from the daily drama and all gossip that we try to avoid, clear our minds of all the crap so we can heal ourselves of our troubles and start fresh with a clean slate, to move forward better and stronger as we walk our paths of this journey through life.

I don’t know about you? But I am done with all this election crap, all the attacking of each other on the debate stage, I mean if you can not run for a public office on your own merits without attacking your opponent, then maybe you shouldn’t be running for any office at all, that is just my opinion. Then there are all the lies and making yourself out to be somebody you are not no wonder why this society is so broken? Now there are some who live for all this drama, the bickering, the attacking and get so consumed with all this crap, that they then forget that there is this thing called life, that you need to actually work at, so you can walk your path as smoothly as you can. Plus there are these candidates that offer free stuff as their pitch to get into office and there are some who actually buy into this pitch, who do you think will actually pay for this free stuff? You guessed it, the ones that actually work very hard and pay their taxes, so those lazy types can buy into all the free talk.

Mother Nature has a lot more to offer you than any so-called candidate, that will offer you the world and never deliver on what they offer, true mother nature can at times show her fury, but also true that she has so much beauty for us all to see as well and even better, with each trip into her back yard, you will always see something different. Then there is all the different plant life, some that you will never see in your daily grind, the so many different species of wildlife for us all to enjoy to see in their natural habitats, now as we venture within mother nature let’s not forget two major rules, 1, we are now in the home of all the wildlife, so we need to respect them as we want others to respect our homes, 2, always leave no trace behind and respect the land for future visits, not to mention so we can always venture into mother nature to see all the beauty and not the crap that some may leave behind. We all walk our own paths through this journey of life, so if we all come together in unity, respect each other, show empathy of each other, then just maybe we can eliminate all the crap, the hatred, and the ugliness, as we all move forward in peace and harmony always.

 

” The beauty of mother nature is all around us we just have to get out and explore”

 

” Respect goes a long way when each one of us does it together”

 

” If you can not run for an office on your own merits then maybe you should not run for that office”

 

” Mother nature is free and unlike what some may say you can actually venture out and enjoy all her beauty”

 

 

A Society ripe for an attitude adjustment

1398913762364

 

My little buddy coming alive once again for a society in need of an attitude adjustment, Martin Richards will forever be a little eight-year-old boy, as he was one of the ones that perished in the Boston Marathon bombings, by two mentally deranged Individuals looking to hurt all that they could. May this sign of his forever live within the minds of us all, simply because we are all guilty of wanting nothing more but to attack and hurt each other, as well as trying to gain all the power and control over each other also. It is sad that within this society we crave all the negative left bias media, just so we can see all the people hurting real pain, then look the other way saying…….. ” it does not affect me”. There is very little to zero empathy in this world today and because of that, we care very little for each other as well as long as it does not affect the me attitude today.

Now front and center during the Democratic debate last night was totally 100% what I am talking about, all they were doing was attacking each other for their own political gain and these Individuals are suppose to be running for a chance of being President of the highest office on the land? I wouldn’t let either of them be in charge of a Pig farm, let alone leading us within this great country of America. The biggest problem with these warped Individuals is, they think they have the answer for us all? When in reality they couldn’t lead their way out of a wet paper bag. I mean really one example of their crazy ideas is, Medicare for all? Quite simply this is a single-payer system, that would put us all so far in debt, we would never see the light of day. Then there is one that is offering us all free stuff? guess who will be paying for all the free stuff……… That’s right, we the hard-working taxpayer in this country. Being an Independent and seeing just how deep in denial the entire Democratic party is, leaves me with never voting the democrat ticket, which leaves me only one other option, or maybe writing in a name like Mickey Mouse……….. Wait he just might be the better choice?

Getting back to my little buddy, he may have been taken from us way too early, but this young man was far more mature than most within this society and this sign he holds, needs to be never forgotten by any of us moving forward as we walk our paths through this journey of life.  When we walk this journey correctly and when we walk this journey with confidence, plus showing our true empathy of each other, there is nothing we can not do and that includes treating each other with the respect and dignity we all deserve. We the people are what is wrong with this society and we the people can change this society as well, all we need to do is dig down deep and get back in touch with our true feelings, emotions, and empathy, that Jesus Christ taught us, when he came to us and walked his journey with us. We all have lost that warm feeling within our hearts, also known as Love, instead, we misuse this word in ways that we really shouldn’t, like showing love for the material things we have, instead of the real people that are all around us. So let us look at all the hatred and ugliness being brought to us by the left bias media as nothing but propaganda and let’s really unite as one people throughout this society, totally and truly showing our empathy of one another, as we then move forward to be better and stronger throughout this journey of life that we all walk.

 

” A society that is in need of a good attitude adjustment, that starts with each one of us showing our empathy of each other”

 

” Ugliness… Hatred… Corruption… Oh My!!! Let’s try Love…empathy and respect Oh Yes!!!”

 

” When we unite and walk together there is nothing that will stop us especially when we the people treat each other as God envisioned for us all”

 

 

The story within the story…aka History

 

There are many stories within the story, with the biggest story of them all being, the one we gather while we walk this journey through life. There is so much history throughout and not just of this country of America, but all the other countries as well, the history is how we grow together along the journey, everything has a history some may call it a past, but none the less it is the history that helps us all grow and move forward better and stronger.

With some histories, they are too painful to look back on, but we do need to glance back in order to heal ourselves properly, so we can move forward better. When we do not glance back then we can not heal from whatever it is we need to heal from. Sometimes the history can be fun to look back on, especially when we learn great things of all our pasts as we walk this journey, there is so much to learn of our pasts, but there are some who want us to learn nothing and become a pawn in their so-called world of this journey.

Within all the history no matter where we look, there is always a story within the story, then when we get the inside story we then find more to the story at every turn, the story never ends as we find the history of all we see, never ends either and goes a lot deeper then we shall look superficially. Now when we do look into the history we will find many stories that we thought never existed, we will even find things of our ancestors we never knew before, we will even find out within the history, that with the story being within the story, we will get to the real truth and even as that truth brings out a lot of deeply hidden pain, with real hurt that may have us think about giving up? But as we do get through all that pain, as we look deeply into the history and deep within all the stories, we find that we become better and stronger throughout the paths we walk of this journey through life.

 

” The story within the story that is what becomes the history of our pasts”

 

” Some of the stories may bring great pain and hurt, but we should never pass a chance to heal from the pain and hurt”

 

” There may be some who may stop us from learning about history, but it is what we need in order to move forward better and stronger”

 

 

Get to the “Heart” of the judgment

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

” You have heard that it was said to your Ancestors, you shall not kill and whoever kills will be liable to judgment. But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment”

Mt 5:21-22a

 

With this quote from scripture and as we truly decipher the words, you can clearly see that each one of us are guilty of sin, so I think we all need to enter into the house of God, so we can ask for his forgiveness, so we can move forward within this journey through life, without looking back and dwelling in the troubles of our pasts, keeping us within the walls of purgatory within this life.

God created us all as equals true there are some differences, but these differences are what makes us unique to each other, now in this society, we simply do not look deep enough to see any uniqueness, we judge way to quickly and when it comes to getting to truly know one another……….. Let’s just say it may be easier to walk along the shore of the beach and watch the waves slap the shoreline alone with our own thoughts. This journey through life was meant for us all to coincide, not to be divided or bicker at each other with each turn.

The heart is front and center as the most vital of our organs, the heart can become overcome real easily, but if we treat it correctly it can also bring us much comfort and joy with feelings of warmth. The heart will see everything as all our other organs send it the signals of life, the love of Jesus is also within our hearts which brings us the warmth of life, so we can move forward with strength.

Today we take for granted so much that we do not even think about what is most important until it becomes too late, we will get caught up with neglecting what is good, only to try to fit in with what we think is normal? then we think that if we do not actually pull the trigger of the gun, then we did not commit the sin of the murder, but what we do not want to think about is, once that even has become a thought, now the signal has gone within our hearts, to which the sin has already been committed long before the trigger has been pulled and now we need to walk into the house of the Lord, so we can have God forgive us and then we can forgive ourselves and others.

“Bless me, Lord, for I have sinned”, you do not hear these words all too much anymore simply because, with a few that do not have the faith let alone believe, they will cry and say that they have been offended until another will make an amendment that will prohibit anyone from saying those words, are you kidding me? Have we stooped to this level today? I think we all should go back to the basics, go back to the beginning of Mankind, go back to a time that we couldn’t even communicate with anything around us and we had to figure it out, or we simply became just another statistic as we walked through this journey of life.

This journey may seem hard to some, but it is really quite simple and all you need to figure it out is simple Common Sense. Now other societies of the past left us with good and a lot of prosperity, but within this society and our actions, we will not leave the newest generation with the same prosperity that we received, instead, we will leave them on their own to figure out, with no base to start from and use as a guide, for their actions to take them into a journey of peace, instead of a journey full of great pain and hurt. The guide for us here in America is the Constitution, which is why we all have to read it in its entirety, each country has its own guidelines, but this is another way of us showing our uniqueness, now I get that we will want to interpret these guidelines very different, but if we do not follow our heart, then our judgments along this journey will be within the clouds throughout this journey, then the pain and the hurt, not to mention the walking of the journey with no common sense, will have us all be within the division and bickering back and forth without truly listening to anything that is around us.

 

” Don’t skip any beat as the heart is the life of all throughout this journey of life”

 

 

” The killing takes place in the mind’s eye before any action has been taken”

 

 

” The sin is made when you simply think of the action, not when you actually take the action”

 

 

 

Focus in on what is around you

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

With focus comes everything in its place, but when you are not focused then everything becomes in such disarray, everything is like it is out of place and you constantly keep trying to rearrange things, nothing ever is right there in sight and we always are looking for whatever it is we are looking for. Life itself becomes out of whack because without focus, then even as we walk our paths of this journey, everything around us we then overlook and walk right by without looking deeply at what we are seeing.

When we are out of focus even the simplest things become very difficult to tackle, we become frustrated and out of sorts, we tend to lose faith and confidence in ourselves as we think we can not do anything, which leads to our self-esteem to become nonexistent and disappear. Without the focus, we then lose all sight of true success, the true focus isn’t just looking at something clearly, true focus comes from deep within and is what we have so we then can see clearly of everything around us.

When we are in focus as we walk our paths of this journey, we then can walk with confidence as everything we do is at the very best of our abilities, we can truly feel our true feelings and emotions, everything we tackle we do so with the utmost confidence and succeed at everything we do, our self-esteem is at the strongest it can be, as we then will do everything and anything to the best of our abilities, even if we have never done the project before, nothing we will fear as fear will never scare us, we will see everything with clarity as the focus will have us see everything around us.

Very true that this focus can be stripped from us with the life events that may come to us and as these events whether of our own actions or from the actions of another, they will have us come out of focus until we dig down deep and truly fix what we need, to regain the focus to walk in confidence once again. Depending on the event and the pain/hurt that may overcome us, we may never regain the focus as now we procrastinate in order to hide the pain and hurt from each other and we try to escape as much of the pain and hurt we can, nobody ever wants to be in the clutches of any kind of pain and hurt, as it will change us into someone for who we truly are not, but if we only handle it correctly, then we can escape the clutches much quicker, so we can get back to who we are, get back to being in focus, get back to walking our paths with confidence, then we can truly feel our true feelings and emotions and walk within this journey in the peace and happiness, that Jesus has shown us when he to came and walked his journey here with us.

Even Jesus struggled at times, but when he put his true faith in his father, then the focus came back to him as well, how else you think he sacrificed himself and put himself through all the pain and hurt, so we could be free from all the pain and hurt? Jesus suffered greatly so we shall not, but because we have lost the faith in Jesus, we now have to live with the sufferings and become out of focus of everything around us, all we truly need is to get back to having true faith in Jesus, so we then can be in focus and see clearly of all that is around us and be totally in the peace and happiness, as Jesus showed us along this journey through life.

 

” Nothing we will ever fear, as fear will never scare us”

 

” Real focus will have us look deeply into what we see”

 

” Without focus, we then will become someone for who we truly are not”

 

” When we are focused then everything around we shall see clearly as we walk with confidence”

 

 

Follow Jesus and be enlightened throughout this journey

Bill Koch owns a roughly 90-acre estate known as Elk Mountain Lodge near Aspen. He listed it in 2016 for $80 million, but has since taken it off the market.

” Come after me, and I will make you Fishers of men”

Mt: 4:19

 

 

 

We of this society would rather live in frustration for what we can not do than to truly follow and have complete faith in Jesus Christ, for he will truly lead us and never lead us astray anywhere on our paths of this journey. We of this society think that success comes from stepping on another’s shine, but true success comes from true faith in Jesus Christ to lead us to the path of righteousness, so we all can have hope moving forward with strength and be true of who we are.

Jesus Christ did not come here for himself, he came here for you and me to prosper on this journey, but yet we all within this society have gone the complete opposite of what he taught us as he walked his journey. We of this society think that we can do better at everything, that we do not need help with anything, we also think we are smarter than all those who have walked before us? We are all so confused within this society that we have lost the faith of everything that is good, which now leaves us with no hope moving forward through all the hatred around us.

This world today is so full of ugliness and hatred only because we have lost all faith in not just ourselves, but lost all faith in Jesus Christ our savior. This quote today is more than just what you may think of as being a Fishermen when you become a fisher of men, you have opened your heart and soul to Jesus Christ, you truly believe with true faith that Jesus is good and will never lead you astray, so now as you follow Jesus with your heart, you can then lead others to the same promise land, that Jesus has led you to as well. No matter how troubled you think you are, with the true faith and belief in Jesus Christ, you will always have the hope for a better and smoother path, as you walk through this journey of life.

No matter where you go throughout this planet, you can see all the corruption, you can see all the ugliness and hate, this is just how sad this society truly is today, it only goes to show just how many have lost all faith in themselves as well as Jesus Christ, which now leaves us with no hope moving forward and for those who still have the true faith, makes it that much harder for them to walk forward with confidence throughout this journey. Our so-called leaders can not truly lead anymore, even some who wear the cloth has lost this faith and have become corrupt with great ugliness, when all around us have become engulfed in this corruption, ugliness, and hatred, then where do we turn? We turn to Jesus Christ and reach down deep within, to truly feel his love for each of us, his love is always deep within our hearts and souls, just that we need to have complete trust in him, so we then can have complete faith and the hope will follow us all, all we need to do is, not only reach down deep within, but totally acknowledge Jesus, so he then can help us all no matter how troubled you think you are.

We all may walk our own paths, but the journey we walk them in is all the same, we all start out the same, then our paths bring us to different locations as some may intersect at different times, then we all have the same ending to this journey, but the biggest part is the fact that the time in the middle is where we all go wrong, especially when we lose touch with everything around us, lose touch with ourselves and most of all, lose touch with Jesus Christ our Savior. When we truly acknowledge Jesus and love him as he loves us, then no matter what trouble that may come to you, then our faith will never leave us as we will all move forward with the hope, to walk this journey in peace and happiness we all so deserve.

 

” A fisherman will catch the fish for all to eat and not starve, as a fisher of men will gather all in the love of Jesus to move forward to be better and stronger”

 

” Out of frustration we may do things not truly of who we are, out of love we can truly be of who we are”

 

” Corruption, ugliness and hatred are signs from Satan, as love comes from Jesus to help us grow in a positive way”

 

 

 

The Obstacles can get overwhelming

 

No matter what path along this journey of life you take, the obstacles can be quite overwhelming but you have to focus on what is in front of you, take each stride one step at a time and when you make sure of your footing and step over with confidence, the path will become a lot easier, no matter of how it may look from afar.

Right now within this society and with all the chaos and ugliness, it is very easy to become troubled with the paths becoming daunting and seem very rough to travel, Then you add in the fact that our so-called leaders are so screwed up and can not work together for the better of us all, makes for a lot of us not seeing the light along the paths we walk. There are two Political parties with one not much better than the other, but we have one party that is so far to the left, that they have become the party of Denial while losing all sight of true reality.

The Democratic party is the party of Denial, they attack anything they can to make themselves seem more powerful than they really are. They attack a seated President simply because he is not their guy? They have lost sight of all Respect for anything and anybody around them, not too mention the fact that they have zero accountability for themselves let alone others around them if the President sneezed they would argue that he did it wrong, plus they wouldn’t even say ” God Bless You”, showing that they have truly lost sight of everything around them. But even through all this crap, President Trump keeps moving forward and not just making America great, but making all the people better and stronger as they move forward, leaving all the Democrats in the rearview mirror, as they keep trying to stop all the production that is getting done.

After the last big election, there are a few that have been voted into office, well……. All I can say is, they had their time and it is time to move on from this. I get the fact that they got voted in to replace a long-standing candidate that has done nothing but become dead weight, time to move on from this mistake, vote better and smarter, to give our great President the help he needs to further make this country better and stronger moving forward.

Throughout this world of political correctness, we have become weaker as a society, plus the fact that we have become too much of ” all about me”, through all this crap we have lost touch with the one thing that is truly important to us and that is the fact that we have the true feeling of the empathy we all have deep within our souls. Without true empathy which is the feeling within us to actually feel for those around us, so if we do not have that then we will never move forward with strength, as we will also never have any care of what happens to those around us. Now without empathy, the love within us becomes lost also as they both come together, so instead, we use the word love in the wrong context like, ” I love that car” or ” I love this book”? So now we care for more inanimate objects instead of each other as Jesus showed us when he came to us and walked his path of this journey with us.

Now I get the fact that we all need to work our jobs so we can afford to survive and pay our debt, but somewhere along this path we all have become more disconnected from each other, plus we all have let the clouds of our judgments becoming so thick, we can not see where we are going, which makes it a lot harder to see where all the obstacles are, as we now are tripping over our own feet and not truly walking our paths with confidence throughout this journey of life.

 

” The paths will not always be paved and yes we will have to get over the obstacles throughout this journey of life”

 

” There are two political parties that today are to busy arguing with each other instead of actually working making all our lives better and stronger”

 

” Political correctness has made us all weak as we fear too much of what we say anymore”

 

” Love and empathy go together as they are both deep within our hearts and souls”

 

 

 

 

The Patriot way……I am a Patriot

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

” They were overjoyed at seeing the star, and on entering the house they saw the child with Mary his mother, they prostrated themselves and did him homage. Then they opened their treasures and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh  ”

Mt 2: 10 11

 

To all the fans of the New England Patriots, the Eagle has landed. Now this season compared to all the other seasons of the last twenty years was a very interesting season, to say the least. The biggest question to this team going into what is going to be a very interesting offseason is, should Tom Brady retire or leave what has become his home for another team and not just another team, but a team that has much more uncertainty then this team of the 2019 Patriots. Tom’s legacy is the Patriots and to go to another team, could very much damage that legacy moving forward. Now some of your armchair Quarterbacks who think they know the game better than Tom or even Bill, are going to say whatever they may about Tom and this team, they will even argue that Tom has lost the zip on his throwing of the football, but from what I saw after yesterdays game, Tom can still zip that ball with authority and into tight spaces where only his receivers can get it. The Receivers are whats to be really looked at seriously, the only one he has and he trusts is Edleman and when the opponent knows this and takes Jules out of the game, you now have a Patriot offense that becomes very predictable and easy to zone in on. Now yes Tom has made many no-name Receivers into a household name within the NFL in the past, so one will argue that he can not and should retire? If you really look at the game within the game as Tom and Bill do every day, the biggest thing with turning a nobody Receiver into a star is, if you do not trust the one that is the Receiver to do his job then you really can not be as effective as you were in the past. Trust no matter what sport you are playing, in conjunction with having guys on the team that can and will do their job, is the biggest reason why the Patriots have six Championships and some franchises struggling to even make the playoffs.

Now there will be a lot of your drama queen sports media types and your Monday Quarterback types that will say the Dynasty is over? On the contrary, as long as you have Tom Brady and Bill Bellichek, the Dynasty continues just with a much different supporting cast around those two. Tom has made New England his home and Robert Kraft looks at Tom as his adopted son, I find it very hard to see Tom leaving this organization he has worked so hard to help build. It is kind of like we as Individuals being born into a family, we grow within this family and help build a strong bond and a foundation, so to just up and leave that really isn’t that easy. True there will be struggles as the good times never last, but when the bad times come it is very easy to just walk away, but if you want to be better and stronger moving forward, you have to fight through the bad times, fight through the struggles, which not only makes you better and stronger but also makes your team better and stronger moving forward. Then there is the issue of Josh McDaniels, this guy is a great Offensive Coordinator and my opinion of this is when you are great at something you keep doing what you are great at as you receive the Respect of your Peers, Josh left for the Broncos and became a Head Coach and that didn’t work out too good, I say he stays here with Tom and Bill to help build this team with some very different supporting cast members and who knows? Bill, as well as Tom, will retire someday, then you can take the respect you earned and excel as the next coach of the New England Patriots.

Now some of your armchair Quarterbacks will say that football is a game and very different then this journey through life, I say very different as the game of football as well as other team sports only help you grow stronger as you walk your path through this journey. When you are an individual on a team this will make the game very hard for you, just as when you are an Individual walking this journey with no one around you, makes for a very difficult journey with many struggles. Just look at the walls within Washington DC with our so-called leaders, you have two teams that are supposed to be working together for the good of the people in the Democrats and the Republicans, but instead, right now you have a bunch of Individuals who are doing nothing but argue with each other and not doing their jobs. So true you can say two very different ideologies, but in reality, they are very much the same and when you have common sense, you can clearly see just how similar they are. Just as you have a team coming together showing trust of each other and doing their jobs to win a Championship and when you have a Government coming together through trust and unity, now you can have a society coming together in unity instead of being divided with much ugliness and hatred at every turn. Team sports and the journey of life are so similar, but if you never look deeply at what you see, then maybe you should look in the mirror as maybe you have become part of the problem, instead of being part of the solution for each one of us to become better and stronger, as we all walk a path through this journey of life.

 

” The Patriot way maybe for a team in the NFL, but to be a Patriot of a country you have to do it similar as all the other Patriots by making it the countries way”

 

” I know we all have our own opinions but we also all have our own Butt holes as well”

 

” Armchair Quarterbacks and the sports media all have one thing in common,  they both like to create their own drama and bring it to all of us, making them all Drama Queens”

 

 

Small Town America

The beauty of small-town America lives in many areas within this great country, now there are many small towns through the years that have not lived on for a variety of reasons and that is sad because small-town America was once the fabric that made this country truly great. A lot of these small towns have become what we know today as a Ghost town, these Ghost towns are deep in history, but once again we forget these places simply because we have become too lazy to learn the history instead, we want to think we are the trailblazer only because we are so engulfed in the idea of being in the limelight, that we forget that America had a past and a great past at that.

I lived in the great state of Colorado for some time, plenty long enough that I explored many areas within this state, whether on the beaten path or off the beaten path, as I had a four-wheel-drive truck, that would get me into a lot of places that a normal vehicle could not go. I drove up across mosquito pass from Breckenridge to Leadville, as high as 13,500 feet, this pass was also the old pony express route that would deliver the mail through all kinds of weather and what took me eight to ten hours, depending on me stopping at the old-time Ghost towns to view, would of taken the pony express two to four weeks to travel depending on the weather. Then there was another Ghost town just outside of Minturn, Colorado that was built literally on the side of a mountain, but people had to leave their homes as the water supply had lead in it, that forced them out. There were many small towns similar all through the state of Colorado it makes for a great state to visit and learn of the true history of America. There is a small town about forty minutes west of Denver called Georgetown, this was once a very vibrant silver mining town, that when times change and the silver wasn’t needed as much, went through some difficult times, a lot had left the town, but the ones who stayed had to think outside the box, as to keep this beautiful small town from turning into yet another Ghost town.

There are many small towns throughout this country of America, some still vibrant today as they had to reinvent themselves to stay afloat, while many others fell to become Ghost towns that are just buildings with no vibrancy or movement from Mankind. Within this society today we take so much for granted and the biggest thing is, we don’t take the time to learn from these pasts, so we then can move forward better and stronger. There is so much we can learn from these small towns, but yet today we are so arrogant that we think we are better than anything from our past? Within these small towns, you had people like you and me today, there are a few who came out of the small towns and made their marks within this country, now some had big impacts and are in the history books, some just for a short time which we do not really look at, then there are the ones who left the small towns to never again looked back? They have forgotten of their roots and have moved forward with only themselves on their mind, we of this society in a lot of ways are doing this now, as when we work our way up within the companies we work, we tend to forget of what it took to get to where we are today. There is a lot more to this journey through life then what is around us at the present time, the problem then lies with each of us not taking the time to explore and see some of what America was, instead we want to think that we are the smart ones and the trailblazers of this country, but if it wasn’t for America’s past and the small towns that built the foundation of this country, then truly where would we all be today?

Everything around you started somewhere, whether a small town or even that technology device in your hand, if you never look back in the past and learn from it, then moving forward will be either difficult or just the fact of, we become wanderers instead of truly walking our paths through this journey of life. For me the best way I have learned of these small towns, was the time spent in the great state of Colorado, only because when I wasn’t working I was exploring and not just what was on the beaten path, I ventured off the beaten path and came across some of America’s smallest towns that are now forgotten Ghost towns, that now is a time that most of us have forgotten with no desire to ever learn from.

 

” The small towns of America which some have reinvented themselves while others have become a forgotten Ghost town”

 

” A true trailblazer of any country will explore all of that country, learn all they can to help the country become truly great in the world today”

 

” The Ghost towns of yesteryear have become forgotten from this society, but at one time it was vibrant and what helped build the foundation of this great country”
