Many times I see things I think could be better for others. And I’m usually glad I had not taken the chance of making them mad by telling them what I think.
We, as brothers and sisters under God, should not be afraid to tell others our thoughts. But we should do it in a way that our friendship is not damaged. Why take the chance of losing some really good friends by telling them where they might be wrong in what they think?
Here in America we have freedom of speech, press, religion and assembly. That is the way it should always be, but there are times certain people sort of make you mad because of the way they downgrade those whom I think are doing a great job. As most know, I don’t try to downgrade anyone just because of the way they think, but I do ride the fence so that I can see both sides of the question. That is my right to do so, and it shouldn’t cause others to think I am referring to them.
As a proud American, I try to maintain the position that a person is right until he or she is proven wrong. A person is innocent until proven guilty, unless he is caught in the act.
Many times people who do things that are wrong do it because they haven’t thought it out before the actual act. And there are some who really don’t care about the person they hurt with their actions and words. When that person takes a weapon, he is sure to do the deed before thinking about it, and then his or her life is ruined.
We have people in our prisons who did the deed, and they are paying for it. But there are many out there who have never been caught doing the deed, and so they have to be proven guilty according to law. A man is innocent until proven guilty. That is the law of the land whether I agree with it or not, and it is so much better than that of the countries that take a person from their homes and off to jail where they rot for a crime they probably did not commit. Such is the law of the land where there is no democracy.
