A Time To Mourn

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Mr Common Sense.     Mr. Sense has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such value lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm and that life isn’t always fair. Common Sense Lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not kids are in charge). His health began to rapidly deteriorate when well intentioned but over bearing regulations were set in place. – Reports of a six year old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; a teacher fired for reprimanding a unruly student, only worsened his condition. Mr. Sense declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student; but, could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. Finally, Common Sense lost the will to live as the ten commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; criminals received better treatment then their victims. Common Sense finally gave up the ghost after a woman failed to realize that steaming coffee was hot, she spilled a bit in her lap, and was awarded a huge financial settlement.

Comon Sense was preceded in death by his parents Truth and Trust, his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; his son, Reason. He is survived by two step brothers; MY Rights and Ima Whiner. Not many attended the funeral because so few realized he was gone.                                                           Author Unknown

Look, what has our world as become!  I know CPR maybe it isn’t too late to bring Common Sense back………. My own food for thought, today.
