I was thinking about that song this morning and it called to mind a lot of things, but especially how we can all get caught up in different things like politics, whether they be left or right, conspiracies, worrying about the state of the country and the world, chasing after the almighty dollar, climbing the corporate ladder, being in the right social circles and the many things that people can let themselves get obsessed with as time quietly marches on and as our children and grandchildren continue to draw impressions from us and grow up and go their own way.
There are certainly some serious issues going on in the world right now, but anyone who takes the time to look at history will see that greed, corruption and world problems such as disease of one sort or another and poverty have always existed.
I am not advocating that we ignore these things, but I am saying that those of us who worry, those of us who want to make the world better, those who advocate freedom must also think about what price we are willing to pay in terms of the lives of our families, our children and our own lives.
The same cost account needs to be considered for those who are caught up in many of the other things I have mentioned; things like putting business, social climbing and THINGS first. It's all exciting, It's all good but where do we draw the line? The Cat really IS in the Cradle.
