for a whole bunch of reasons, not the least of which was watching Cool Hand Luke. It’s been quite some time since I had last seen it. That is a great classic movie. My favorite part is when he is captured for the second time and “broken”. As he is returned to the bunkhouse, his fellow prisoners turn on him because they feel let down. As he is lying on the floor, he asks them, where are you now?
Life is much like that movie, people living “their” lives through the window of another. Most people do nothing more than watch television to gain their perspective on life, never understanding that to understand life, you must participate in it, not simply observe another’s viewpoint. I end my class each week telling the guys to read your Bible, read your Bible, read your Bible. Never let anyone tell you what is in it unless you have read it and can compare.
Another interesting thing about yesterday is that I was called a flaming liberal for not wanting an Imam to teach my grandchildren Biblical history, for saying that a cash transaction in public should not lead someone to call the police and for saying that if I don’t have transportation, I should be allowed to walk to work without someone calling law enforcement to report me. Yeah, I suppose that makes me a flaming liberal all right. It’s a crazy, upside down world when emotions enter politics.
