We deserve to escape the stress, being dumb sometimes works. I remember one particularly stressful afternoon in an ICU a nurse started singing “High Hopes”. You know the song ->- “Just what makes that little ole ant think he’ll move that rubber tree plant? Everyone knows an ant can’t move a rubber tree plant.” It was ok for this brilliant nurse to stop and be silly it made us all chuckle and carry on with a smile and a lighter heart.
Some young man is losing his life in a war, and some dolphin is gasping in a sea full of oil, and some evilness is being plotted for financial advantage by our very own American Goldman Sachs et al. Other evils are plotted and I don’t understand the advantage, maybe just some kind of revenge, like the smoking SUV. We can be really glad that guy blew (pun intended) at his assignment to blow up Times Square.
Soldiers going off to wars to die for some cause. What a strange world we have created. We get feelings of pride and gratification or at least a feeling of safety from their sacrifices. I wish we had a world where, no one ever has to endure the impending doom soldiers in war face everyday. I hate the idea of someone dying for my safety. I wish extremists of every form would just bring it down a notch. Go hug a baby or something. Back off the medication or take more — or something.
