Thanks to my friend Greg Swann at BloodhoundBlog.com for highlighting this video. If anyone thinks the “good old days” were so great, just look at how short a life our recent generations enjoyed. As Greg points out on his blog, just think how much more dramatic this would be without taxes, government restraints, and the wars pushed on us by our so-called leaders.
I am at heart an optimist, and despite the constant grumblings of people like Glenn Beck that our country and our life as we know it is coming to an end, I see a positive future for our world. One filled with dramatic improvements in medicine and technology, with most of us living longer, happier lives.
2010 is nearly gone, so wave goodbye and welcome 2011 for what it is; another year to enjoy your friends and family, and to work harder toward the goals that are important to you. So, turn off Glenn Beck and appreciate all we have and where we live. Better times are ahead of us! And who knows, maybe the Cavs will even beat Miami tonight!
