Realistic Reality

The value of guns and flags are unfortunately worth more than flesh and bone and souls in the minds of many. It’s a sad state of affairs when we put things up on a pedestal to worship them while at the same time reducing the value of human life in all its forms. Greed and hate and pollution are what seems to be ubiquitous whereas generosity, love and care and conservation are things hard to come by. The death of humanity seems to be at hand and what do we do about it? That is a huge question we all must answer. How can we value things that give joy, comfort, peace and giving instead of the opposite. Our world is in peril and as its passengers on this ship we have to find out how to get along before we get gone. Realistic reality is a hard thing to look at but it is something we must face. What do we do? What do we value most?
