I have been over in Germany and the UK for the past 2 weeks (well almost) and have not really taken the time to blog. But I have been reading my friends blog (www.timelytidbits.wordpress.com) when ever i can get to the Internet. As of late she has writ en some powerful blogs, blogs to make you think, that’s what I like to write. I don’t think I do that all to often, but when I do, I am very pleased.
The Internet is a wonderful thing, it allows basic people like me to present my views on the world, my faith and anything else to the whole world. Got to love that. But with the ability to do so also comes great responsibility. Yes I know that’s from Spider-man, but its true.
I have the ability to change outlooks, I have the ability to be uplifting or not, I have the responsibility to be truthful. So with bloging comes a responsibility, one that i hold high. Others do not, but I am proud to state that both Theresa (www.timelytidbits.wordpress.com) and I take that responsibility on and try to live up to it.
To me, often times i type drivel, nothing of much use to anyone but me, and sometimes its not even useful to me, but every now and than I fell I do type something of great importance, either on this site or my other blog site (www.youcanbenew.wordpress.com). When that happens I feel a warmth in my soul, knowing that I have used the web to make this a better world.
I just finished a great book “A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity” by Bill O’Riely from Fox News O’Riely Factor. This book was about his life, how he became who he is. Through out the book he talks about responsibility, to self, others, country and God. He uses his Catholic school education as the starting point of his morals, and he is not sorry for them. His point of view is, as I see it, Do what is right, and most of the time all will turn out okay, and when it turns out bad, fix it if you can, and move on…. I like that point of view, its the same one I hold. Stand strong for what is true and don’t let anyone tell you not to, stick up for yourself and defend others when they are wronged. To me Mr. O’Riely hit it dead on! So pick up this book and read it for yourself, it’s well written and true to Mr. O’Riely
He knows (Mr. O’Riely that is) that with his job comes great responsibility, that he has an obligation to others and himself to be the best person he can be, and that means treating others as they should be treated. We all can learn for his book, I have found it to be a great “self help” book. Mr. O’Riely would hate me calling it that, but to me it is.
So stand tall, take your world by the nose and hold on to it, fight for what is right (and don’t let anyone tell you that there can be more than one right, right is right, wrong is wrong, end of story!) and try to make this a better world for all.
Theresa and I are both trying to just that, each in our own way, often times we do not agree, but that’s OK, we don’t have to, she can go on being wrong and I can go on being right (just a joke, sort of), in the end we both will know that we stood tall and strong for what we truly feel to be right. At times we are pig-headed and do not hear what each other are saying, and at other times we are not so, and allow the other to control, but in the end we both have grown because we both put ourselves out there, displaying our inner self for all to read, and I can say that both of us are truly proud to do so. You have allowed us to ramble on and given us a home to voice our concerns, to display our views and reach out to others. You have allowed us to build a home where all our truly welcomed, how grand it is!
All may not agree with what I right, but all are welcomed to leave comments, and I do not remove them unless they are spam or use words that should not be used, or read by the young, once again i have a responsibility…
So leave your thoughts behind for all to read, inspire greatness in all, or reject what i have to say, either way your comments add to the conversation, and that truly is a blessing.
