Have you noticed that there are people who understand that the world is growing rapidly worse, stay engaged with what is happening and get it. But there are also people who are completely oblivious? Not a new subject, yet one that always fascinates me.
Today was haircut day. As I was sitting in the salon, with my boys, I couldn’t believe the conversation I was hearing from one loud hairdresser, as she talked with her client. She and her client had absolutely no clue about the state of the world. She went over her travel plans to Europe, how she may send her young kids to Europe for a while to learn another language, how they just got back from Cabo & are remodeling their house.
Meanwhile the client went over her upcoming trip to Paris & how she is planning a trip to Germany. Hello?? And BTW, the client was an attorney. They were both well spoken & fairly intelligent (except for taking the Lord’s name in vain every 5 minutes). Look, I’m not saying that we should lock ourselves in a box & not live our lives because of the state of the world, but it always strikes me as astonishing when I hear people acting like everything is great when it clearly is not! While we can’t hide from everything, we should use our discernment & common sense.
I’ve always loved to travel. I knew that when I had children, I’d take them all over the place too, but life didn’t turn out that way. The dangers in this world make me really think very carefully about where I take my children. Their safety is #1 to me and Mr. Patriot.
Remember ‘Gone With the Wind’ when things were a disaster, money was scarce & Scarlett had the drapes made into a gown for Rhett’s upcoming visit? It’s kind of like that. Pretending that everything is normal & perfect, when it isn’t.
I’m not a conspiracy theorist or a negative Nellie. I’m not a big downer or afraid of my own shadow. I’m not even a pessimist. On the contrary. I’m a realist. Reality is in front of us. The truth is the truth. This world is in very bad shape. There is plenty of information out there to read. Watch what is unfolding every day in this world. Listen to the way people speak today & reflect on how much things have changed from just 10 years ago. It’s all right there in front of our noses, yet so many just do not see it. Are they making the best of things like Scarlett did? Are they just stupid? Or are they blinded by deception and paralyzed by political correctness? I know which side I’m on & I’m grateful every day that I can see the truth. ~~Sister Patriot
