Lesson of the day, learn to be thankful for the things you have got, regardless of how small you might think they are. And don't get it twisted, LITTLE does not mean INSIGNIFICANT.
Secondly, the worst thing that can happen to a man is not blindness but having eyes and yet not being able to see.

I have watched with dismay, the extent of moral decadence in the society, however personally I choose to dwell more on the positive and resort to intercede rather than criticize. Also, I find it very hypocritical of the society that we scream immorality, but yet it continues to thrive because deep down in our heart, we enjoy it and even encourage it in lots of obvious ways.
I was on faithreel.com and as I read the above mentioned subject, I said to myself that it couldnt have been put better and I just had to share.....

Prejudice is a burden that confuses the past, threatens the future and renders the present inaccessible.
Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.
Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.
My mother said I must always be intolerant of ignorance but understanding of illiteracy. That some people, unable to go to school, were more educated and more intelligent than college professors.

Most times unpleasant things happen to us and we use the very popular phrase "WHY ME"? But Really if not you then who? With Stephen Sutton however, rather than "WHY ME", his was "WHY OTHERS"? Diagnosed with cancer at such a young life, he was determined to make a difference in the lives of those diagnosed with the same ailment. An attitude of bravery. Everything happens for a reason and life will only become much better, when we start considering others more than ourselves. Unfortunately we get so consumed with where we are now, and the fear of tomorrow heightens our insecurity. We think our security comes from how much we can acquire, and the more we acquire, we realise that there is a difference between how much we have acquired and how many people we influence and then the tussle for power/influence begin. The drive for comparison/competition steal the joy of today and frustrate every attempt to enjoy the fruit of our hard work. It ends up producing individuals who are so consumed in themselves and forget the whole essence of humanity. To make a positive difference in as many lives as we can. Stephen died at a very young age, but he had such an influence that some who live up to a 100years of age will never ever dream of achieving. If you are reading this, realize that today is a gift, and tomorrow is not guaranteed. Maximize today before getting busy with worrying about tomorrow. If you can do a good deed, do it today. Make a difference and dont defer any opportunity to change a life positively. Even the bible says "that men may see your good works, and glorify your father in heaven" What are you doing? Living or Live In?
