Something About Turning The Clock Back

Some folks these days want to turn back the clock it seems. As much as they would love to go back to a time when they didn’t have to encounter people who are different from them they just can’t do it in reality.

If they could, then they should go all in. Let’s get rid of modern conveniences like The Internet and cool things like Amazon and Netflix. Make it hard to breathe and fewer restaurant choices. Medicine, who needs things to keep diabetics and others with chronic illnesses from suffering. Our cars can get less miles to the gallon and our roads won’t be as nice either.

We can go on and on in turning the clock back so that some people feel more powerful and entitled. My friends the world is a scary place these days because a lot of people are afraid out there of change because they don’t want to have to move forward. We all have a choice to embrace the future where everyone has a say and is equal or backwards where some folks live in a lot of fear. Let’s keep the ball of life moving forward because we can’t go backwards, at least I hope so.
