jmo, we should all be able to do that--each and everyone of us--brave and dying for lack of 'many things'--ridiculous. No sense thinking the government can ever fix all that goes wrong in so many lives.
i will continue to do 'something' as i see the needs. many believe that this is one way that the enormous and overwhelming problems can really be solved.
i am a 'good reformer'--one of the best, in fact. what i did for the customers of my local Target is invaluable. one thing at a time.
those who focus on standing around screaming about what is wrong are not contributing much to resolving problems.
more work for the rest of us --but if that is what 'helps' them --they have a right. there was screaming about Viet Nam--i well remember that. no one can forget what Jane Fonda did at that time. she lived in Atlanta for a while--seemed to have changed her ways. philanthropic---did/is doing a lot of good for many who critically need such help. i don't believe we should be focused on changing the past--which cannot be done. nor do i believe we should examine each other so critically --everyone makes mistakes--most learn and do better--forgive as well as you can.
i personally do not think we should completely 'forgive/forget' those responsible for terrorism. jmo. evil must be confronted and consequences must be appropriate. how much more money should go to building prisons to accomodate criminals i don't know.
steve jobs---was the topic of this thread--to my knowledge--i suppose the military uses his products and is grateful to steve jobs. that is the only way i can connect the quoted thoughts to the military.
praying that i can be forgiven if i took the thread away from the op's topic.
