THE TEMPTATION TO JUST GIVE UP

Aug 23rd, 2013 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

A friend of the 88 year old WWII veteran who was killed in Spokane, apparently at random, said after the death was reported, that all there seemed to be anymore is “bad news.”

There may be something to be said for that, but that something is not a response of anger, threat of retribution on others, or reinforcement of hate and suspicion. The tension between trying to keep the peace and waging more venomous attacks continues, it appears, unabated.

There is so much wrong with our world today that attempting to right it evokes the temptation to throw up one’s hands and just give up.
