my thoughts on Today times this morning as i set alone in from of my computer,, thinking about what my life has been like as a person..being brought up and raised by two hard working parent, on a little hill side kentucky farm , the oldest son of eight children born to my father and mother union, working hard in the tobacco fields together as a family..being taught not to shun work but to put your heart in what ever your doing, and if its digging a ditch do it the best you can. in this modern day times, the family farm hardly excist any more, our children here in america hardy have ever had to work or are even taught about work, i know some have but not many have experianced a hard day work at the age of twenty..work want kill you but sometimes you think your going to die.. but to me its sad that young folks have it so darn easy ,,, all it does in hurt them when they do have to get a paying job, no wonder we have so many that steal and knowing that crimes plaughs our nations cities and counties, and old mountain saying applies these day(- the idle hand is the devile work shop.)..to much free time i,m thinking in my opinion of course...did you know that some young folks these day have been raised by wealthy parents feel they are too good to do manual labor...their is another old mountain saying,, born with a silver spood in your mouth..which means simply having it all the top in wealth and accsets....knowing that God give and supplied us hands to work and feet to get to work enought strength do the work ... I strongly thinks that work is required for all of us..moral and values are not being taught and stress these day and that is a big downfall to any nation ..there is a reward in any work when a tast of work is completed it give the worker a sense of worth he or she feels great after havedone work and now its”now completed...it seem we have failed our children in these modern high tech world that we all now live in.. we have communication like the cell phones ..internet chat lines and all kinds of high tech stuff , but people are so far away from the old down home porch talks and how many family actually even eat together at one table. in my opinion we are less in communication with each other ...i don,t mean to sould so old minded ,,,but something is sure missing these days in human and family relationships..i think moral values and good old common principles would be a good place to improve this mondern day world and get back to the things that made us a great nation ..In God we Trust or do we?
