Do You Remember?

Do you remember when life used to be a little simpler?
When it used to give, and not just take
When freedom really stood for something
When people paused to think
When respect was something you gave, and earned
When you respected your elders, no matter who they were
When life was something you lived, and not something you took

Remember when the true greats were idolized, instead of actors, actresses, and singers in the entertainment industry? The greats being: Gandhi, Mother Theresa, and Princess Diana. I remember.

I realize sometimes the more things change the more they stay the same.  However, I’m not so sure of this at times. I think we have let our lives pass us by without alot of truth and consequence, and without thoughts and visions of tomorrow.

Remember,

Think before you speak
Look before you jump
Crawl before you walk

What ever came of this?

Try to remember

     Try to change

          Try to better your world
