Exclamation I Was Just Thinking


I can not help but wonder, especially at a time when we are still expanding our ambitions outward into space, why mankind still can not get along – right here upon Planet Earth? It brings to mind the old 1951 movie “The Day the Earth Stood Still”, with one exception!

“Instead of some outer space alien traveling to Earth to get us to change our ways, it is rather “We Terrestrials” who are pushing the envelope! The only real problem is that “We Earthlings” are far from being a peaceful and beneficent race!

As such, I can not help but wonder what kind of a system we would be exporting out into the cosmos, if that is, intelligent life does indeed exist somewhere out there beyond the visible skies? With NASA and Space X working in conjunction on a launch (tonight) that is geared (or so they say) to “Seek Out New Life”, I would say that at this point in our evolution, we more closely resemble “The Fictional Klingons” than we do “The Dove of Peace?”

“But what the Hell”, for those of you who can still remember that time-worn commercial where “That Caring Old Indian (Iron Eyes Cody) watched helplessly as modern man polluted his once pristine environment, I say: “Maybe, starting tonight with that launch into deep space, we will finally be able to take our show on the road. After all, there has still got to be a few million more planets out there that we can screw-up and recreate into our own perfect (?) Image!”

Arrow Words spoken by a Shawnee Chief

Words spoken by a Shawnee Chief

"Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.

Trouble no one about his religion.

Respect others in their views and demand that they respect yours.

Love your life, perfect your life, and beautify all things in your life.

Seek to make your life long and of service to your people.

Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.

Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, or even a stranger, if in a lonely place.

Show respect to all people, but grovel to none.

When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength.

Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living.

If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.

Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.

When your time comes to die;

Be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.

Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home." --

Tecumseh (1768-1813) Shawnee Chief


This was one smart Indian!


O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
