Two Choices


What would you do?…..you make the choice. Don’t look for a punch line, there isn’t one. Read it anyway. My question is: Would you have made the same choice?

At a fundraising dinner for a school that serves children with learning disabilities, the father of one of the students delivered a speech that would never be forgotten by all who attended. After extolling the school and its dedicated staff, he offered a question:

‘When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does, is done with perfection. Yet my son, Shay, cannot learn things as other children do. He cannot understand things as other children do.

Where is the natural order of things in my son?’

The audience was stilled by the query..

The father continued. ‘I believe that when a child like Shay, who was mentally and physically disabled comes into the world, an opportunity to realize true human nature presents itself, and it comes in the way other people treat that child.’

Then he told the following story:

Shay and I had walked past a park where some boys Shay knew were playing baseball. Shay asked, ‘Do you think they’ll let me play?’ I knew that most of the boys would not want someone like Shay on their team, but as a father I also understood that if my son were allowed to play, it would give him a much-needed sense of belonging and some confidence to be accepted by others in spite of his handicaps.

I approached one of the boys on the field and asked (not expecting much) if Shay could play. The boy looked around for guidance and said, ‘We’re losing by six runs and the game is in the eighth inning. I guess he can be on our team and we’ll try to put him in to bat in the ninth inning..’

Shay struggled over to the team’s bench and, with a broad smile, put on a team shirt. I watched with a small tear in my eye and warmth in my heart. The boys saw my joy at my son being accepted.

In the bottom of the eighth inning, Shay’s team scored a few runs but was still behind by three.

In the top of the ninth inning, Shay put on a glove and played in the right field. Even though no hits came his way, he was obviously ecstatic just to be in the game and on the field, grinning from ear to ear as I waved to him from the stands.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, Shay’s team scored again.

Now, with two outs and the bases loaded, the potential winning run was on base and Shay was scheduled to be next at bat.

At this juncture, do they let Shay bat and give away their chance to win the game?

Surprisingly, Shay was given the bat. Everyone knew that a hit was all but impossible because Shay didn’t even know how to hold the bat properly, much less connect with the ball.

However, as Shay stepped up to the plate, the pitcher, recognizing that the other team was putting winning aside for this moment in Shay’s life, moved in a few steps to lob the ball in softly so Shay could at least make contact…

The first pitch came and Shay swung clumsily and missed.

The pitcher again took a few steps forward to toss the ball softly towards Shay.

As the pitch came in, Shay swung at the ball and hit a slow ground ball right back to the pitcher.

The game would now be over.

The pitcher picked up the soft grounder and could have easily thrown the ball to the first baseman.

Shay would have been out and that would have been the end of the game.

Instead, the pitcher threw the ball right over the first baseman’s head, out of reach of all team mates.

Everyone from the stands and both teams started yelling, ‘Shay, run to first!

Run to first!’

Never in his life had Shay ever run that far, but he made it to first base.

He scampered down the baseline, wide-eyed and startled.

Everyone yelled, ‘Run to second, run to second!’

Catching his breath, Shay awkwardly ran towards second, gleaming and struggling to make it to the base.

B y the time Shay rounded towards second base, the right fielder had the ball . the smallest guy on their team who now had his first chance to be the hero for his team.

He could have thrown the ball to the second-baseman for the tag, but he understood the pitcher’s intentions so he, too, intentionally threw the ball high and far over the third-baseman’s head.

Shay ran toward third base deliriously as the runners ahead of him circled the bases toward home.

All were screaming, ‘Shay, Shay, Shay, all the Way Shay’

Shay reached third base because the opposing shortstop ran to help him by turning him in the direction of third base, and shouted, ‘Run to third!

Shay, run to third!’

As Shay rounded third, the boys from both teams, and the spectators, were on their feet screaming, ‘Shay, run home! Run home!’

Shay ran to home, stepped on the plate, and was cheered as the hero who hit the grand slam and won the game for his team

‘That day’, said the father softly with tears now rolling down his face, ‘the boys from both teams helped bring a piece of true love and humanity into this world’.

Shay didn’t make it to another summer. He died that winter, having never forgotten being the hero and making me so happy, and coming home and seeing his Mother tearfully embrace her little hero of the day!

AND NOW A LITTLE FOOT NOTE TO THIS STORY:

We all send thousands of jokes through the e-mail without a second thought, but when it comes to sending messages about life choices, people hesitate.

The crude, vulgar, and often obscene pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion about decency is too often suppressed in our schools and workplaces.

If you’re thinking about forwarding this message, chances are that you’re probably sorting out the people in your address book who aren’t the ‘appropriate’ ones to receive this type of message Well, the person who sent you this believes that we all can make a difference.

We all have thousands of opportunities every single day to help realize the ‘natural order of things.’

So many seemingly trivial interactions between two people present us with a choice:

Do we pass along a little spark of love and humanity or do we pass up those opportunities and leave the world a little bit colder in the process?

A wise man once said every society is judged by how it treats it’s least fortunate amongst them.

You now have two choices:

1. Delete

2. Forward

May your day be a Shay Day.

    I wept and was not ashamed if anyone had seen me. Frankly – the first thing I thought of was a memory of my childhood and how that could have happened in real life at that wonderful time. I don’t know if it is a true story, or if it was – that it happened in recent times – but it was the kind of thing that reminds us all of our humanity and those thing we held so dear before the ‘occupation’ and the obligatory moral rot.

    It took me back to a time when Americanism was NOT just all about winning – but about compassion – love – and caring for your fellow ‘man’. It was our ‘Camelot’ – a time of wholesome innocence – and sadly- my sons will never experience it. It is gone and will more than likely never return.

    That story vindicated love – compassion – and placing the feelings of another human being before our own – AND – it was shared by not just one person but an entire ‘team’. It is hard to imagine a collective act of love of a less fortunate fellow human being being done today.

    It reminded me of a ‘knights code’ I saw years ago in a movie. To clothe the naked – feed the poor – help the helpless and defend the defenseless. If only our modern day ‘knights’ – our military – had such morals and character. It would be a miracle if even our politicians and business moguls would conduct themselves like that. It is only the dream of an idealist – born at the wrong time in history.

    Thank you mark – for sharing something beautiful in this world of hate violence and greed.

    “every thing NATURE does, is done with perfection”!!.

    When saying NATURE, do you by any chance mean GOD??

    Why are you reluctatan to say GOD, tell us,then perhaps we can answer your question.

    Is ir prmitive-like to use the name GOD?

    Have we (You) replaced the Name God with the word Nature??

    BTW, just in case you care to know, ancient civilizations
    taught that,what you “civilized” world call RETARDS have other
    abilities, abilities that are not known to the rest “normal”
    people; such as they can understand CATS’ language, they know what they are meaning.

    The baseball thing? Hhmmm, it made the father proud,because that
    is his version of excelling and there is no harm to that.

    I am of the school that the kid never felt less of a human,
    particularly when he is understanding things we “normals”
    don’t, when he is like KING SOLOMON, talking to ANTS.

    Mark:

    I truly appreciate reading this human interest story about Shy.
    It is a breath of fresh air to take break from foreign policy issues.
    I have to confess too like Joe, I could not hold my tears while reading
    the story, despite the fact I don’t fully understand base ball game.

    hile on the subject of people with special needs, I would like to share
    this personal story. Not to overshadow Shy’s heart wrenching tory or to take the attention away.

    It is about some one who is dear to my heart. Some one who make me a proud father. I wrote it eight years ago.

    ENTIRE FAMILY UNITES BEHIND BOY’S STRUGGLE TO OVERCOME AUTISM

    Saturday, April 21, 2001
    EDITORIAL & COMMENT

    Every night when I tuck my 9-year-old twins into bed, they both have the same prayer: “O, God, let all my family go to heaven.
    Thank you for what I’ve got, and God, please let Adam be typical.”

    Adam is their 7-year-old brother. He is the youngest of my five children, who was diagnosed with autism at age 3. Autism is a neurological disorder that typically appears in a child’s first three years. It interferes with normal development of the brain in areas of reasoning, social interaction and communication skills. The earlier a child is diagnosed, the better the outcomes are.

    According to Dr. Judith Gould, director of the Center for Social and Communication Disorder, “Autistic children often share certain characteristics, such as inability to relate to others or understand how they are feeling.”

    As of this week, 36 governors across the United States, including Gov. Bob Taft, have declared April as Autism Awareness Month, and some have declared April 27 as Autism Awareness Day. There is no prevention or cure for this disorder.

    We kept Adam’s diagnosis a secret from our own family and friends until recently. We were scared and often wondered whether Adam would ever speak or lead a normal life — be able to drive, work, marry and have kids of his own. It was time for action. My wife spent many sleepless nights on the computer doing research and looking for the most effective treatment to rescue our child.

    The answer was the applied behavior-analysis program, which has been used successfully all over the country. We hired trained therapists, mostly psychology students, who spent countless hours with Adam doing intense programs.

    After two years of treatment, he showed great improvement. Adam is now a first-grader in public school with the least-restricted environment. He is doing well in school, and he is likable. He is showing feeling and emotions. He has mastered the use of the computer and is able to read and write.

    There is something unique about Adam: He has an amazing memory. This school year, he has learned the birthdays of all his classmates, most of the teachers and his many therapists. I am also proud to say that Adam has recently learned at home how to point out all 50 states on the map and recite their capitals. Not only has Adam learned the names of all 43 U.S. presidents, he can recite them in reverse order.

    But Adam still is lacking in terms of social interaction and has poor eye contact. He receives a visit or a “play date” once a week from an 8-year-old girl named Alex, whose younger sister also is diagnosed with autism. Alex has made Adam more social as she forces him to play with her. He, in turn, emulates her behavior.

    Finally, my wife and I are grateful for the hard work and sacrifices made by Central Ohio Families for Early Autism Treatment. They have made a difference in Adam’s life. He will be taking his first flight this summer to see his relatives overseas. With God’s will, Adam will be a typical and productive member of our society, rather than a burden on it. Mahmoud El-Yousseph

    Adam is 18 years old and attend the same High School with his 18 years old twin brothers. He is very handsome, doing excellent in school. I was invited few weeks ago for breakfast with him @ his school, where he received two awards. One for perfect attendance in the previous year, and the other was “cat in class award”, given to student who are selected by teachers for good manners and for far and beyond the good conduct.

    I have to add that Adam is also a walking encyclopedia about animals. He also spell check everything I write.

    On a more pleasant note, since I wrote this letter about Adam, we have had a new addition to our family. Adam has now a six years old brother, named Chafique. Thanks again Mark Glenn.

    My ‘mentally retarded’ genius ten year old son traveled to Washington D.C. last August to celebrate Barack Obama’s Birthday with his own wish of playing basketball at The White House.

    WOW, I believe this needs to be forwarded to The White House, and everywhere else who is interested in participating and playing the ultimate game of life.

    The absolutely most beautiful story of selflessness I’ve heard in quite some time. May God bless those boys who gave Shay a chance to participate, and dignity before he had to leave this world. Brought me to tears. At 51, I’ve never fathered a child, but can surely relate to the joy which both Shay and his father experienced on that day.

    Thank you so much for sharing this tale of compassion and love. IF ONLY we ALL could be of such a disposition as those boys . . . Oh, what a world we could live in !!!

    What would I do ? Exactly what was done if given the chance ! And I try at every opportunity that presents itself to me, though I’m no hero . . .

    My best and peace to all,

    Mark

  10. #10 by David on December 15, 2009 - 3:20 am

    Wonderful story, it reminded me of how much harder I need to try to be compassionate for others.

    I grew up hard and made sacrifices and became successful on my own and through it I put up major walls that manifested this idea that others can do it too. Maybe that isnt true, at least not without a little help. Even for those who dont understand the help you are offering, I guess we should look past the root of the problems in others and keep extending our hand out of compassion. Sometimes I forget we are all in this together.

    Thanks for sharing.

    God Bless and Merry Christmas!

    That was the best little cry I’ve had in quite awhile. It was cleansing. Love cleanses everything it touches.

  12. #12 by jjr on December 15, 2009 - 3:24 am

    When I was 16 and going threw many difficult times a friend I had the fortune to meet and share sometime and life with. Billy had downs syndrome and was about 12 (very old for a person then; mid 60’s)We shared times and projects all threw the summer and Autumn. My parents moved from AZ to Colorado with no forwarding address-they had enough of me. They could not understand how patient and good around Billy and a jerk the rest of my life. I didn’t know then and do not now. I guess it was the Love for others and thanking for being whole and capable of being or being able to do anything I chose to work for to achieve. Billy didn’t make it another year and the way I lived why did I? I have worked at the Job Corps(4yrs) and that was the second best time of my life after Billy. I guess I like giving more than receiving, feeling something more than being somebody. My life now is in shambles and I am still trying to help others when I need to go on food stamps and am trying to find work a disabled person can do-that being me.
    But the true giver is my wife!

    I have spent over thrity years of my life in the movie industry and saw it go from clean, heart rendering, intertainment to the cess pool of all the pits in Hell. Our nation is in real bad spiritual condition as it has become a dog eat dog society. It is the time of the year to ask yourself who do you serve God or His rival. Our nation is in the hands of the most satanic sub-humans on the face of the earth. They are sending our kids off to die in their wars without leagally declaring war in Congress as the Law requires. They ignor our Constitution and print money out of thin air without the backing of gold. This is a short story of the condition of our country. Greed has replaced Love and it will be the factor that will destroy our nation. You see folks greed is the ego of mankind out of control with no ties to reality or truth. Pray hard for our leaders,service men, and yourself. We are at the crossroads of time and all hell could break out that could terminate life on our planet. We need God to intervien and we Need Him Now. a small patriot bronc

    I cried while reading this story, too. It’s one of the best and most uplifting I have ever read. It made me realize something. I’ve been so outraged by the horror, crime and shame that has overtaken the United States over the last nine years that I have allowed my humanity to slip away from me. My rage has made me cynical and hateful. Someone else told me that today, and I angrily dismissed them. Now, this story gave me the same message. As bad as things are, and as bad as they’re likely to get, I can’t allow what happens to get the better of me. I can’t let it extinguish the spark of hope, faith and charity within me. If I do, the Devil has won. As a very wise man once said, “Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”

    Good observation and fine imagery.

    Mahmoud has quite a story, too.

    A king struggled thusly with loss of much,

    “O that I were as great
    As is my grief, or lesser than my name!
    Or that I could forget what I have been,
    Or not remember what I must be now!”
    ~KING RICHARD II, Act 3. Scene III, by Wm. Shakespeare

    But life is not power, position, or glory, it is doing most with what one possesses, to use one’s gifts to their full potential.

    “The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part; the essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well.” ~Pierre De Coubertin, founder of the Olympics

    Shay fought well. He won a victory at the hands of his opponents; the rarest victory to achieve. Similar to the victory our great God allows each of us to win.

THE VOCATIONAL PROJECTS, THE THRIFT STORE AND HORTICULTURAL PROJECT (GENEROUSLY SUPPORTED BY PUBLIX MARKETS)WERE FOUNDED IN 1974 AND DEVELOPED OVER THE YEARS BY A DEDICATED, LOVING STAFF.

    THIS NON-PROFIT AGENCY FOUNDED BY JOHN ELBARE, DR. ED WHITE AND SUSAN SEFTON PROVIDES THE SAME CARING, SELFLESS SUPPORT TO THESE YOUNG PERSONS AS IS PORTRAYED IN THE STORY ABOVE. MOST REMARKABLY, AN OCCASIONAL VISITOR TO THE PROGRAM (FUNDED BY THE STATE OF FLORIDA, TITLE 20 FEDERAL MATCHING, THRIFT STORE, HORTICULTURE EARNINGS AND PRIVATE DONATIONS) WILL FIND A TOTALLY CONSISTENT STREAM OF TREATMENT AND REHABILITATION AS WAS THE GOAL FROM DAY ONE.

    Mark the poster,

    No, not you, i wasn’t adressing you and haven’t read your post.

    Sorry, you misunderstood, i was addressing to MARK the WEB MASTER

    I read in haste and post in haste, i thought the article was written by his guest weisanthal or whatever .:)

    Why did i apologise, because i challenged him on GOD and NATURE,
    and it is not POLITE to challenge a person in his home,
    or home page.

    That said, You guys sound like you have never seen a compassionate American.

    I lived in the American south, and in very short period the
    Jew north; TWO different AMERICAS there.

    Real, christian, southern Americans are compassionate people,
    at least they were before the Patriot act.

    Regarding AUTISM, it is growing in number in the west.

    Some studies show it is related to VACCINES.

    A Danish study made the corelations between the two.

    To Mahmoud El-Yousseph, if your child is suffering autism
    induced by Vaccines , it is good idea that you take him to
    visit home. I don’t know much about Palestine, but i suggest you take him to countries that have traditions of ancient medicine.

    PURE, FRESH Camel milk is said to cleanse much of the poison
    from the vaccination, it cleanses the elements that the body
    is rejecting.

    So is said about ALOE SOCOTRINA, Brothers’ BLOOD, OlIBANUM,
    and MYRRH.

    Honey mentioned in the Qur’an, that honey is found in Yemen ,
    quite expensive,but worth every drop. About 500 dollars
    per kilo gram.

    Only natural materials can cleanse pharmaceutical chemicals
    in the body.

    If the child is suffering autism that is genetically induced,then that has no cure.

    One must not look down upon that child, he or she is complete,only we do not understand him or her.

    No Pitty feeling needed, lots of love is required.

    Mark the poster,

    Love the “French BASQUE ” or any kind of Basque for that matter.

    Merry Christmas to you all christian folks.

  24. #24 by Arabia-Felix on December 15, 2009 - 9:06 am

    People choose to use the word “Nature” instead of “God” because religion has ruined the word.

    There is no such thing as “Christian” love, or “Muslim” love or “pagan” love. Love knows no creed.

    Shay was lucky that his obstacles in life were obvious to those around him, but what about the rest of us? Most of us think we are quite normal but all of us have our limitations. In fact I have never met anyone who was not mentally disabled, including myself. We take for granted that if we have a modicum of motor and communicative skills that we are somehow normal and like other people but most people hide their handicaps. Whenever we do anything for anyone, we are helping someone who needs it. Even the most seemingly normal people have their limitations and could use a hand, but seldom do we lend it.

    My younger brother is mentally and physically disabled to the point of almost non communicative but he is on a little league team, for the experience. Our folks never prompted the rest of us to play a sport for esteem, and the time I did “try out” I wasnt good enough. So why is it important to a disabled child and not one who hasnt the physical ability to keep up?

    Its a cute feel good story, but deeper down, its quite sad that the sentiment doesnt run through to everyone.

    This is absolutely not the way life works. If you belong to the good ole boys and girls club, then you have happy social moments. Otherwise, it is dog eat dog and then you die.

    Have seen people like “Shay” get their ass kicked in, spit and cursed upon, and jokes passed around when they die. Have never seen anything good from people towards the Shays. This story is another unreal fantasy about how people sometimes act.

    The typical American is a no talent, back stabbing, arrogant piece of ugly stinky, brown, brain dead parasite. They would literally eat Shay if given the opportunity and a deep fat fryer. Will laugh like Hell when America finally implodes.

    Great story. I didn’t cry, but almost. I tried my best to get an old friend to understand what’s going on, and how bad it is going to get, but the psychology runs too deep.
    I told him, “everything you’re taught from birth, in school and on television, is nothing more than a program to blind you
    from looking into and finding out mankind has an enemy, that wants to enslave you.” He dismissed me with a chuckle and a smile.
    All he talks about is mundane bull with my 78 year old Mom.
    Children dying and tortured in Gaza, Palestine and all over,
    are an abstract concept for him about which he feels nothing.
    Go along to get along, passionless Good Time Charley type.

    Ty!
    Do you remember Don McLean’s By By Miss America Pie!
    Do you remember;
    “And as the flames climbed high into the night
    To light the sacrificial rite,
    I saw satan laughing with delight
    The day the music died.”

    If you cant remember that far, can you still remember
    the good days before this war on terisom start?

    The bottom line is Americans fantasize about becoming Jews. They have been programmed to worship evil, and the vampire Jews, with the group consciousness called Lucifer, is what Americans aspire to become.

    Sure, the Infinite Creator gave them life, Free Will, and the ultra magnificent Earth to live upon. What really counts is an over inflated ego and belly and a live for today lifestyle as long as their medical insurance can handle it. Americans clearly no longer believe in the Infinite Creator, since they clearly support murdering millions of Arabs in order to steal their petroleum, gas, and drug products.

    If they did not support this theft, they had both Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich to vote for, which they did not. The Messiah (cocaine addict, sexual deviant, plagarist communist) was talking about invading Pakistan two years ago, and McPain (elitist, womanizing, treasonous, bumbling criminal) was talking about invading Iran. Americans showed their true, want to be a Jew, colors through the election process.

    America is doomed.

    This story was never authenticated so I believe it is someone’s made up feel good story. Especially in this day and age, even 10-15 years ago I cannot believe there would be not one but two groups of boys in that situation who would make such a choice. Been around enough young boys when my children were growing up and even in the Catholic schools where the kids were so much meaner, streetsmart, horrible compared to the public schools I’m just not buying it. Given my older son was diagnosed with Aspergers and severe ADHD, I’ve been down the same path and never saw any child be compassionate toward either one of my sons no matter how much I prayed and wished things would be different. Nothing but pure fiction/fantasy.

    What a wonderful story. The truth is that mankind is not born bad…this story proves that. What is ruining mankind’s noble spirit right now is poverty, greed and power madness. Poverty is caused by greed which is fueled by power madness. In the US, power madness has begun to grow in secret hidden by claims of “national security” and machinations by people wanting to lay claim to power that they have not earned and would not deserve if the citizenry knew what they had done.

    It is time for the truth about everything to come out. We need to do this to create a world in which children can be nurtured to grow up to be like the children in the Shay story.

    It’s a good thing that Shay didn’t live in my neighborhood. It was all about winning to all the parents who lived there except for mine. I never knew what I did to piss off Mrs. Kay Lincourt but she had bad mouthed me to all the neighbors so that I was excluded from most things. I wasn’t handicapped or disabled in any way, perhaps if I had been i would have been treated better. No, I didn’t grow up top be a criminal or anything like that. I served honorably in the Navy for 5 years, 8 months and 1 day. Got married moved away from Pawtucket, RI and never looked back. Mrs. Lincourt I don’t know what your problem with me was and I don’t forgive you because you should have been the more responsible person being an adult. No, I don’t forgive you, I just feel sorry for you that whatever your problem was you had to vent it on a child.

  39. #39 by Scarlett on December 15, 2009 - 7:19 pm

    While I don’t know if this is a true story, I’ve no doubt that it could be.

    My daughter befriended a little girl at school who, for some reason, refused to speak. She played with her at recess, sat with her at lunch — even though the other girls didn’t want to because she never said anything. Over time, my daughter was the only one she would talk to. If the little girl needed something, she would whisper it to my daughter and my daughter would get it or let the teacher know. She was also afraid to go to the restroom alone and my daughter became her “bathroom buddy” to help her with that. Her mother told me that she did not know what they would have done without my daughter’s help because it made it possible for her to go to school. I did not instruct her to do this. I only found out about it when the mother thanked me. Now, my daughter is no saint. She is a typical little girl. But I’ve always tried to teach her compassion and she has cousins with autism so being around someone “different” isn’t shocking or strange to her.

    If I, an imperfect parent at best, can teach my child to be kind — there is no reason or excuse why others can’t as well. The reason they don’t is because we, as a society, don’t demand it of them. Too many people have the mentality of “every man for himself” and think they must prepare their kids to be ruthless to succeed in that world. What they need to do is prepare their children to CHANGE that world.

    For me, the message of this story is that we all have within us the power to create miracles. Is it a miracle of biblical proportions like healing the sick or turning water into wine? No. But it is the small miracle of making the world a better place for one person on one day. That may not seem like much. But the ripple effect from every act of kindness can reach across the globe. The moment we stop believing it is possible is the very moment that it ceases to be possible.

    It’s a great story about humanity in a civilized society. It doesn’t however address the type of society that most of the world lives in. When faced with the choices of feeding your family or being kind to those who are at a disadvantage, what choice would you make? These types of stories are great for reminding us that if the world was first a great place that facilitated this type of behavior then it would be a wonderful world. The reality is that the world is a dark, cold and unforgiving place; regardless of the human factor.

    JIM AND JOANNE…I AGREE THAT AMERICA IS DOOMED IF FOR NO OTHER REASONS THAN THE FOUR STEPS OF NATIONAL SUBVERSION OUTLINED BY THE EX KGB DEFECTOR YURI BESMEYNOFF ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvcZiNt6ypI&feature=related ) AND THIS PASSAGE FROM AN ENGLISH PROFESSOR REGARDING THE RISE AND FALL OF THE ATHENIAN REPUBLIC:

    “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world’s great civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage (REVOLUTION), from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage.”
    – Lord Alexander Tyler on the fall of the Athenian republic

    IMHO WE ARE AT APATHY WHICH, IF NOT CHECKED WILL LEAD TO THE FINAL STEP: THE PASSAGE OF THE SO-CALLED “HEALTH CARE” BILL WHICH WILL REMAND US ALL TO LIVING IN A CRADLE-TO-GRAVE NANNY STATE IN WHICH ONE WILL LIVE OR DIE BASED ON A NATIONWIDE TRIAGE POINTS SYSTEM.

    THE BESMENOFF INTERVIEW IS A PERFECT TELLING OF OUR CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES AND HE WAS PRESCIENT ENOUGH TO HAVE DONE THIS IN 1985!!

    AS FOR THE STORY, I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT IF IT IS A FABRICATION THERE’S NO NEED TO WORRY AS THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ALL OVER THE PLANET LIVING COMPASSIONATE AND FRUITFUL LIVES WORKING WITH THOSE OF US WHO ARE BORN WITH SEVERE DISABILITIES. REST ASSURED THERE IS ONE OF GOD’S YOUNG SOULS IN THAT HUMAN, AND THEY REPRESENT AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THOSE WHO CAN, TO UNDERSTAND, ASSIST AND LOVE THEM TO THE BEST POSSIBLE LIFE THEY CAN EXPERIENCE. I DID IT FOR 15 YEARS AND KNOW THAT IT BRINGS GREAT RESULTS. OUR SHIP MAY BE SINKING, BUT WE NEED NOT TREAT EACH OTHER POORLY AT THIS, OF ALL TIMES WHEN YOUR COURAGE AND COMPASSION MIGHT JUST SAVE THE DAY AND EVEN YOUR OWN SOUL.

    ONE OF US IS REPUTED TO HAVE SAID, “IN AS MUCH AS YE HAVE DONE UNTO THE LEAST OF THESE…YE HAVE ALSO DONE IT UNTO ME.”

    @Jim

    And somehow your not to blame…

    Your stereotype and ignorance shines very bright. There are a lot of Americans fighting this corrupted government which was taken over by Zionists. Not all Zionists are Jews either!!!!

    There are many countries where governments have been bought out and sold into this Zionist New World Order concept; this includes Iran as well. Also, elections are rigged to the point that we have no choice or voice on who gets elected.

    American is not doomed because of people like me will stand up and fight like a true patriot. I’ve not forgotten the importance of ethics and admiration. Even this article made me choke with joy to see people out there still showing love and compassion.

    If you want to help fight against this “doom”, then stop wasting time on the Internet by blaming others. Put your words into action. You can start by forming local communities of like minded people who have come up with solutions to exist out of this corrupted system.

    Heart warming indeed but not very applicable to the real world. Like Shane pointed out above, hunger was not an issue so it was easy to let a disadvantaged kid have his “moment in the sun.”

    Nobody really had to sacrifice to let the kid score the winning point.

    I used to play rec soccer and once in a while a mentally hadicaped kid would want to play with the rest of us. Our instructions were the same every time: Don’t intimidate the kid, let him take a shot at the goal or make a pass to his team mates. Don’t charge him like we would do to more capable players. We went easy on disadvantaged kids in the midst of our games.

    It was disappointing at times when we wanted to compete but not in any way a true sacrifice to go easy on the disadvantaged kids.

    Future society will judge us by what we did to advance civilization. The treatment of the weakest members will be seen as an afterthought in the context of what the standard of living was in the past compared to the present. (That’s the “Ugly Truth.”)

  47. #47 by Shadesofknight on December 15, 2009 - 9:05 pm

    “‘When not interfered with by outside influences, everything nature does, is done with perfection.”

    Total crap. The more correct version of the same statement, but not nearly so well-suited to such a puff piece as this:

    “Life in the state of nature is solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.”
    – Thomas Hobbes

    What the tale tells us is sweet and heartwarming… and totally off the rails, in the context of natural life.

    The fact of the matter is that we, humans, desperately wish that Mr. Hobbes was NOT correct in his assessment, while all the evidence we can find supports it. So we seek out these touching stories about how people do these things, as though it’s natural for us to do so…. we fabricate evidence of how our natural state is somehow wholesome and good. All the while, we know… deep down… that we’re not, and the world, in its natural state, is also not so wonderful and sweet and heartwarming.

    If we truly were honest with ourselves, we’d realize how un-natural tales like these truly are… and how far afield from nature we as a species truly are. We’d have to acknowledge that because we so desperately wish for the world to be something it isn’t, we intentionally make ourselves into something we aren’t in order to support our delusion about the world around us.

    If we were truly honest with ourselves and truly logical… we’d have to agree with the Joker:

    “When the chips are down, these ‘civilized people,’ they’ll eat each other.”

    It is so easy to generalize – but the love of God is personal, it is not about gender, nationality or anything like that.

    At a time when USA proves a strong desire to team up with the Synagogue of Satan and to fight for everything which is evil it is all too easy be focus your hathred on USA. However, we are individuals, we are unique creations of God, so we should not be tempted to let our emotions cause us to make collective judgments on others. When one day we stand before God, we may try to be our own defendents, even if we know that the only defence we have is the justification we earned through the suffering of Christ. However, we cannot defend others, because we all fall short of the grace of God.

    The beauty of this story is not the story itself, it is that human beings, in this case children, tuned into the love of God and reflected His love on their neighbour to make Shay sense and know in his heart his value.

    I have no clue what kind of sports are enjoyed in heaven, I only know that Shay will not be an outsider! God bless him an his family!

  52. #52 by Kay A. on December 15, 2009 - 10:24 pm

    The story is touching, whether true or not; It could be true for ca 90% of human children that are not born psychopats, as those have no conscience or compassion, whatsoever. Shay was lucky to interact with human children and I’m happy for him.

    The scary thing is: psychopathy is genetic and in our competitive times, psychopaths are better equipped to win the race, having no qualms about lying, deceiving, manipulating and even torturing and murdering the human beings; They recognize “their own” immediately, whether they’re school bullies with own group of supporters, army thugs committing war crimes, doctors prescribing deadly pharmaceuticals or our present rulers, sending young people to die in the name of business and bankers; Those we should learn to recognize early enough to never allow them to have any power over human subjects. Because they are not truly human, they only pretend to be.
    Aliens do live among us, and unless we learn to recognize the early symptoms, such stories like Shay’s – may become more and more rare; almost symbolic of the loving and compassionate humanity we were meant to be…

  53. #53 by medicis on December 16, 2009 - 1:33 am

    Psychopathy is the problem. I get disgusted with those who imply it is Zionism or Jewish. Govt. trolls those. The psychopaths are in each culture, each religion. It is up to people such as those who posted their true feelings here, who loved the compassion reflected in the story, to bring the God of peace and compassion to all … whether it be Christian, Jewish, Muslum, Hindu, Jain, Buddhist, Tao, Pagan or whatever.

    –get ‘disgusted’ with it all you want, but nevertheless trying to seperate these issues from zionism and judiasm is like trying to separate lung cancer from cigarettes and only a fool (or a troll working for some govt agency or foreign agenda) would try such a feat.

God seems to think what I say is pretty important – Satan doesnt like it. Google: “Garth Warr” and you will see that going on at all levels. You might like survival/life/winning/realising importances, and so via what I said in this wilderness turn the trickle into a turning of the tide Wray’s post described so well for America, Earth, Creation, etc. 8008 turned on it’s side gives infinity and zero symbols: the reduction of ‘necra’ and the expansion of ‘vita’ – a summation/language for our task, via what I/TWIG (The Why Is God) said. If you actually want to win, that’s how. I know it’s not yet normal.

    Confusing nature with God is perfectly normal – man has been doing it probably since the first caveman took a burning branch and lit a fire. “God” was early, ignorant man’s way of explaining all that he couldn’t yet grasp in the world – who makes lightning / thunder / earthquakes / love / war, etc? Today we no longer need a God, but some people cling to the old beliefs, mostly because their parents and their grandparents simply weren’t inclined to change their ways and embrace a world without the need for a supernatural explanation for everything.

    HEY, “NATURAL ORDER”

    “Confusing nature with God is perfectly normal.” NO…THERE IS NO “CONFUSION” HERE. TO RESPECT A CREATOR FOR ITS WORKS IS NOT CONFUSION. THE DAVID STATUE BY MICHELANGELO IS IN AND OF ITSELF A MASTERPIECE TO BE ADMIRED, BUT IN DOING SO THE ADMIRER ALSO, AND CAN’T HELP BUT HONOR THE ARTIST WHO BROUGHT IT FORTH FROM THE MARBLE.

    THERE ARE THOSE WHO ARE EITHER SELFISH IN THAT THEY INSIST THAT THEIR RELIGION IS THE ONLY TRUE CONCEPT OF DEITY, OR, OTHERS WHO INSIST THAT THERE IS NO CREATOR, AND THAT CONSCIOUSNESS, MORALS, ETHICS AND LOVE SOMEHOW CRAWLED OUT OF THE MINERAL CRUSTS AND SEAS OF THE GALAXIES.

    MY FAVORITE QUESTION TO ATHEISTS IS, “WHY DON’T WE GO OUTSIDE AND LOOK UP INTO THE NIGHT SKY?” THEN I ASK, “SUPPOSE YOU EXPLAIN TO ME AS WE LOOK INTO THE VAST COSMOS, HOW CAN OUTER SPACE JUST GO ON OUT THERE FOR EVER? AND IF IT STOPS SOMEWHERE, WHAT’S ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WALL?” SO FAR NOT ONE PERSON HAS BEEN ABLE TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION WITHOUT COMING DANGEROUSLY CLOSE TO THE PROPOSITION THAT THE VERY FACT THEY CAN’T ANSWER THAT QUESTION INDICATES SOLID EVIDENCE OF A MYSTERY.

    “SO, PUNY MORTAL…YOU ARE UNABLE TO EXPLAIN THE ORIGIN AND EXTENT OF THE UNIVERSE TO ME. PERHAPS IT WOULD BE BEST THAT SINCE YOU CANNOT EVEN DO THAT, YOU MUST ADMIT THAT WE DO NOT KNOW AND, THEREFORE, MAYBE…JUST MAYBE IT WOULD BE PRUDENT TO ASSUME A CREATOR IS INVOLVED HERE. SURELY, IF THAT IS THE CASE, THERE’S A GOOD CHANCE THAT THE EMERGENCE OF SELF CONSCIOUSNESS (“COGITO ERGO SUM”) “I THINK, THEREFORE I AM” -DESCARTES- IS PART OF DEITIE’S PLAN.”

    GEE, HAVING COME THIS FAR, IT FURTHER SEEMS PRUDENT THAT WE TREAT THE CONCEPT OF A CREATOR WITH THE SAME RESPECT WE LEARNED AS CHILDREN FOR THE EFFORTS OF OUR PARENTS TO FEED, SHELTER AND EDUCATE US. DID YOU NOT TRUST (ASSUME) THAT THEY WOULD FEED YOU EACH MORNING? WHY, OTHERWISE, YOU WOULD NOT EVEN COME TO THE TABLE. AND SO, NOW THAT WE HAVE PROVEN YOU TO BE A PERSON OF FAITH AND TRUST IN YOUR HUMAN RELATIONS, WHY NOT EXTEND THAT ATTITUDE TO THE COSMOS? I’M JUST SAYIN,’

    WHEN HE WAS ASKED BY THE VICAR TO RENOUNCE SATAN AS VOLTAIRE LIE ON HIS DEATHBED, HE REPLIED: “NOW, NOW MY GOOD MAN…THIS IS NO TIME TO BE MAKING ENEMIES.”

    This story represents humility and kindness.

    “THE GOOD IN MANKIND.”

    The fathers reference regarding “nature” when not interfered with by outside influences correctly discribes natural perfection. That same natural perfection can also be very harsh since only the strongest survive. There is no tolerance for imperfection.

    His observation of “true human nature” is eloquently discribed in the story. Mankind was made in the image of God. As he states the affliction of his son presented the opportunity to use this true human nature, an endowment given to us by our Creator. It presented itself as it should in the way other people treated his son.

    Our Lord has placed in each one of us the ability to threat others as He would. It is our choice to obey Him by dedicating our actions and ourselves to His truth.

    It is only when mankind submits to self centered greed and selfishness that he falls pitifully short of what God has made him capable of.

    As stated in the Footnotes we all have the opportunity every day to express the true nature we have been endowed with.

    Yes, all societies and mankind will be judged in the end by how they treat the less fortunate among them.

    James 2:13

    Morehouse,

    Confusing Nature with God should not be “perfectly normal”,
    at least after the massages of Abraham.

    I pointed out the referrence due to the cultural onslaught
    being conducted these days through Media and educational venues.

    There is a powerfull force at work these days, a power that is trying hard, by all means to take humanity back into PANTHEISM.

    The terms Nature or MOTHER NATURE which is derived from the
    KABBALISTIC name of SHKHINAH is being introduced to the masses.

    The FABIAN school of GRADUALISM is being applied here.

    God allmighty IS NOT a female or male. -The minnute you identify him, he is not God,-Islamic, Abrahimcally speaking.

    The staunchly material selves of the jews always tried to identify God. To touch and see him.

    It is scripted in the Qur’an how they gave Moses(pbuh)headaches,
    how they instead favored the Golden calf over a creator that they
    can’t see.

    Every Jew that i met or read about is still crying that famous
    nuisance “where is God”, “why is he not interferring when- crimes happen”, mind you all, they blame God for massacres they
    do around the world and ask why is he not punishing the perpetrators fast!!.

    GOD ON DEMAND rather, one that shows up when they want,how they want, and in place they want.

    A God that just follows their ill mannered,ignorent,arrogant demands. One that doesn’t have his own decision,his own timing
    to interfere.

    KABBALISTIC teachings have ruined the Jewish “race”, made them
    all Crazed i mus say.

    Regarding to your referrence to DESCARTES, i can oly speak for
    myself when i say,- i don’t give a high regard to the “celebrated” philosophers, neither do i appreciate those
    institutions which glorifies the sellected insane.

    If DESCARTES was implying that he is fearing SATAN,
    then so be it. LET HIM.

    There are overwhelming majority of us who do not fear the sucker.

    I NEVER met an ATHEIST in my life. May be it is just me, who knows!!.

    Every so called “atheist” that i met is nothing but-a CRY BABY, as if they can not live with the empty thought themselves alone,
    as if they are looking constantly for a company.

    They repeat to you in a nuisance way that there is no GOD.

    I did case studies on them, a personal quiz that i invented for
    them.

    My conclusion was that they are desperately looking for CONFIRMATION, not that of their disbelief,rather one of belief;
    someone who cnfirms to them that there is GOD,so that they can
    get a solace of that.

    – What a bunch of weak,lonely, souless creed.
    they can’t be alone with a thought or belief or disbelief,
    they need company.

    No more Mother Nature (Shekhinah) crap.

    “Wouldn’t it be nice if human beings were like that?”

    It’s called “Free Will” Tom, we all possess it. It’s what elevates us above animals. Our Creator has endowed us with a CONSCIENCE, a moral sense of right and wrong.

    The world is about to celebrate the day designated to honor the birth of the “PRINCE OF PEACE.” In John 8, Jesus addresses the Pharisees and all of mankind. No one is without transgressions, but as Jesus said in John 8:12.

    “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the “LIGHT OF LIFE.”

    Those in the story chose the narrow path as discribed in Matthew 7:13-14 and Luke 11:9-13, one offered through grace which lead to the “LIGHT OF LIFE.” Granted, we must only turn on the news, read a paper, or enter the world around us to witness negativity, selfishness, greed and evil.

    It all come down to “FREE WILL,” and the choice which path we wish to take and share.

    The formular for life is offered in Matthew 7 :7-14.

    It is up to us to seek and yes when we knock the door will be opened. And, whatever you want man to do to you, do also to them.

    1. This is the problem you have: http://www.henrymakow.com/how_well_do_you_know.html, http://www.recombinomics.com/News/12150902/H1N1_Ukraine_507.html – ‘new cases explode’, plastic oceans, DU ammo, BtGE, etc.
    2. This is the solution you have: set info infrastructures up: http://www.isene.com/artweb.cgi?article=012-woim.txt – programming that can automatically number all paragraphs, sections, sites, etc of all techs and inputs/innovations enabling wiki-ing out agreed order of importances/’flowcharts’ and thus survival.
    3. Psycho-scio-techno-biocide is intended – you are being attacked as described in 1., so you need to defend as in 2., but given there has been no apparent response to what I’ve posted, it seems obvious what will be the outcome for this civilisation.

    Arabia-Felix,

    You said, “The terms Nature or MOTHER NATURE which is derived from the
    KABBALISTIC name of SHKHINAH is being introduced to the masses.

    The FABIAN school of GRADUALISM is being applied here.”

    Exactly ! So true !

    They even code-named the initial bombardment of Iraq: ‘Shock and Awe’…

    Get it ? Shekinah = Shock and Awe!

    Which also commenced – if my memory serves me – on the ‘Jewish’ day of Purim.

    SO MUCH of the new-agey nonsense we hear today is based on Pharisaic/rabbinic ‘Judaism’ and people don’t even realize it !

    They go around bad-mouthing religion – while at the same time parroting ‘theories’ that ultimately have their basis in Kaballist ‘Judaism’ !

    The ‘Big-Bang’ theory for the origin of the universe also has its origins in Kaballah…

    As does the ‘mystical’ number of 6 million ! WWI era documents show that they were throwing around the term 6 million 20 years before the ‘holocaust’, and even more outrageous numbers long before that in the Talmud, which plainly states that (again just by memory) the Romans killed 4 billion, and rolled up 64 million children in their Torah scrolls and burned them alive.

    All of these numbers are an impossibility, a lie. Then as now.

    Arabia-Felix…

    “God allmighty IS NOT a female or male.” I AGREE…THAT IS WHY MY SENTENCE,

    “TO RESPECT A CREATOR FOR ITS WORKS IS NOT CONFUSION” DOES NOT REFER TO THE SEX OF GENERIC DIETY.

    AS FOR YOUR:

    “If DESCARTES was implying that he is fearing SATAN,
    then so be it. LET HIM.: ”

    MY ASIDE WAS IN REFERENCE TO VOLTAIRE’S WRY COMMENT TO THE VICAR, AND I’M QUITE SURE HE WAS BEING FACETIOUS.

    ENJOYED YOUR POST AND AGREE WITH MOST OF IT.

    I MUST SAY, ONE GETS PRETTY TIRED OF ISRAELIS SHOOTING TEN YEAR OLD BOYS IN THE CHEST WITH GUNS PAID FOR BY AMERICA…AMERICAN PREDATOR OPERATORS (JUST BACK FROM LUNCH AT WENDY’S) IN KANSAS CITY BLOWING UP WHOLE FAMILIES IN PAKISTAN, AND THE CIA CONTINUING ITS DRUG SMUGGLING OPERATIONS TO PAY FOR BLACK OPS.

    the comment the dad made about everything in nature being perfect was so not true,
    NOTHING is perfect. it was cute how the kids let shay win and sad how he died but
    if you think about it he was just one child of millions of others in the world,and
    a “challenged” one at that.he had a good life so why be so sad, if he did grow up
    , to him everything would probly be a great challenge. so it might be a good thing
    that he died when he did.

  67. #67 by kenken on December 17, 2009 - 6:57 am

    Nature Order,
    Survival of the Fittest,
    Darwinism,
    Creationism,

    All are inspired by Egotism. let us see how;

    The Fittest can not surive without food. nor transportation, so Nature comes in and designs for the Fittest few seeds equal in size but produce different plants, It took nature a great mind to do that; a seed makes watermelon grows in summer only, for the Fittest needs that in hot days. and two seeds that look the same and grow two trees that look almost the same, but one grows lemons and the other Grow Oranges, and that is in winter only because the Fittest needs vitimin C in cold weather.

    Nature came again and designed few animals mutch stronger than the Fittest himself, and designed their brains to be easily subdued to the Fittest to cary him around and transport his belongings. And Nature was so smart that made camels with two humpes on their backs to form pocket seats for the youngs of the Fittests.

    Then Nature looked around and saw death hiding somewhere but could not find it for three million years, so it went to Drawin asking for help.

    Darwin: I selected myself to be the chosen of the chosen, you will finde death in my thought, Once the non chosen start teaching my thoughts to their kids you will fine death.

    Nature: I am not looking for spiritual death, i am looking for physical Survival! and i do not care about what i can not see.
    And while nature was arguing with darwin, he fall ill and physically died.

    Nature was so intelligent that it took its own trade mark on its craetion, it made all its living bodies have one heart, one digestive system, one mouth, two eyes, and two ears-( the ones in twos because they are very important for survival, and as spare in case of accident). See how smart Nature is!

    BUT the Creator of all including Nature wants it that way. What is the use of the brain if it can not discover its weakness infront of the Power of the Creator. What is the use of Darwin if he insisted on eating from that only tree that does not belong to the Garden and needs earthly toilet to discharge its evil fruit. Too bad Mr Darwin you lost both, and for the Merciful Creator you have to be reformed in the Here after for long long long probation time where the trees are made from fire and its water from boiling crude oil. You will miss the Garden of one hundred percent pure fruits that need no toilets. And only your egotism that make you bilnd to see that who created you on this tiny blue dirty toilt earth in His vast univers can creat you again on a planet that as big as the difference beteen when you were invisible sperm to full grown man. And you do not see that when He created you first time it is easier for Him the next time to recostruct your same finger prints with the Software you left in His Hand

    Oh, Sorry Darwin, you do not belive in Software!

    IN RESPONSE TO:

    Nina
    December 17, 2009 at 3:30 am

    Nina, you should really read once again what the father is quoted as saying. He said when things in nature are not INTERFERED by OUTSIDE INFLUENCES everything nature does is done with perfection. Meaning if left alone things in nature will develop and function as they were designed.

    What the kids did for Shay can best be described as COMPASSION AND LOVE for a fellow human being. The father recognized that his son’s CHALLENGE enabled others to realize true human nature in it’s purist form.

    Shay, was not just one of millions, he was as unique as a snow flake. There was no other human being exactly the same.

    Being CHALLENGED is not a deterrent it only means that one is required to have special effort and dedication. One can only look at people like Helen Keller,born deaf and blind. Renowned Professor Stephen Hawkings,paralyzed from neuro-muscular dystrophy, President Theodore Roosevelt, epileptic seizures, or Walt Disney, dyslexia.

    Helen Keller was born deaf and blind, she was the first person with this CHALLENGE to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. Helen, was a renowned American author, political activist and lecturer.

    Professor Stephen Hawkings the International renowned Physicist was born with a neuro-muscular dystrophy a CHALLENGE that has left him almost completely paralyzed. He was a Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge for thirty years. He is the recipient of Honorary Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts,a lifetime member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences,and in 2009 was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the United States.

    President Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th President of the U.S. He was CHALLENGED with epileptic seizures,bad eye sight and asthma. The President was an historian, explorer, naturalist, author,soldier and Governor of New York before becoming the President of the United States at the age of 42.

    Walt Disney was CHALLENGED with dyslexia, a learning disorder that manifests primarily as a difficulty with written language, particularly with reading and spelling. Disney, was an American film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor, animator, entrepreneur, and philanthropist. Disney is the most influential and innovative figures in the field of entertainment during the twentieth century.

    Nina, the father did not elaborate what his son’s specific CHALLENGE was. Yes, the short time he had was blessed by the love of his parents. But, perhaps if he had lived he also would have been very sucessful in life.

    The only thing that is SAD is your pessimistic cynical outlook. That is your CHALLENGE.

    But, like those described above you can overcome it. If you take the time to research you will find some of them were considered mentally and physically diabled.

    May I suggest reading Mark 5:32-34 in the bible. Like the women described in Mark 5, you also have an affliction.

    May God bless you and grant you the strength and wisdom to find the true human nature and peace that the boy’s possessed.

    Ron

    an inspiring story that affirms as one of my heroes dorothy day said that we work for a world where it is easy to be good-a paraphrase. kindness is everything. a story that lifts my heart. thanks

  70. #70 by Michele Kathleen Moretti on December 18, 2009 - 2:17 am

    This story was very touching, but I’m actually not surprised by the boys’ actions. There was a philosopher David Hume who believed that every human is born with the want and capacity to love and help each other, and that society, and what humans have created, has over shadowed this. In my eyes, these boy just proved him right. They took a step towards being human again.

  71. #71 by Michele Kathleen Moretti on December 18, 2009 - 2:35 am

    Actually, to quickly tack on to my comment before:

    I find this all rather depressing; here I was sitting, reading this wonderful story about a group of boys who looked above and beyond everything about this other child, to ensure his happiness…and then I look down and see some of these comments…

    Truly, to all of you talking down to others, whether it be because of something they said, because they don’t believe in your God or Goddess, or just because you think they didn’t like what they said. I hope you all realize that you are going completely against this story’s message…..
    I read this story and see the hope for humanity’s future in Peace, that everyone will forget about differences in social class, religion, sexuality, ethnicity, race, sex or whatever else we foolishly judge others upon, and we will love and want to help one another.
    I read these comments and fear for humanity in general. I truly hope that all of you hate-filled, self righteous people will one day get the true message of this story…..

    And since this seems to be so important to you, let me put this down:
    I’m a female, I myself am poor, I’m bisexual (leaning more towards women), I’m Pagan (we actually existed well before Abrahamic religions), I’m Caucasian, I am Irish Italian German British and Egyptian, I’m only 18, I go to a public college, I have a tattoo, I smoke, I dye my hair, and I want all of you to find happiness

  72. #72 by Jalid on December 18, 2009 - 1:37 pm

    And You Are Great, Michele.
    :)

  73. #73 by kenken on December 18, 2009 - 3:17 pm

    Michele Kathleen Moretti;

    If you did not write the last five lines of your comment, you would have successfully fooled most of us that you are very normal human ‘female’ body, but since 95% of us humans do not lean more to the same sex, we feel sorry for you, and beacause you are still too young, we hope that you will dicover that if the 95% were like you, humanity would have been vanished long time ago. and what is more dangerous for humanity than that? and dying your hair at this age tells that you do not like yourself as is, so please learn how to be happy with yourself before telling others how to find happiness. And learn something about Religion befor it is too late.

  74. #74 by kenken on December 18, 2009 - 3:34 pm

    And here we go, Michele Kathleen Moretti;

    You already fooled one of my ‘Ugly truth’ friend Jalid.
    and you will probably hear more from the 5%.

  75. #75 by Michele Kathleen Moretti on December 18, 2009 - 5:48 pm

    Kenken,

    Thank you for proving me right.
    I’ve actually been dying my hair since I was around the age of 6, I’ve known my sexuality since 13 and I’ve known my religion since age 10. I do know about religion because I’ve been studying all different religions of the world, and I was born Catholic and Christian, but I saw that those were not the right paths for me. Why stay in a world where you are unhappy? Also, dear Kenken, it’s ok for people like me to exist (those interested in the same sex) BECAUSE we do not make up the majority. The world is free to exist as it does, she would not exist otherwise.
    And one more thing KenKen, though you sit there and attack me, I still wish for you to find happiness and love. I hold no ill-will towards you because I know how you speak is different from how you are. I use to be a lot like you, I hated different people, but then one day I had one of the kindest people I ever met show me how though we all pay so much attention to how we are all different from each other, we never pay attention to how much we are all alike.
    Do we not all love, do we not all hate, do we not all live, do we not all die, do we not all bleed, do we not all yearn, do we not all learn, do we not all breathe? The list could go on for ever and ever but if you can’t see the similarities between all of us now, then I hope you are able to one day.

    And thank you Jalid, you are wonderful too ^^

  76. #76 by WRAY MOREHOUSE on December 19, 2009 - 2:21 am

    HEY MORETTI,

    SOUNDS LIKE YOU KNOW YOURSELF PRETTY WELL. THAT CANNOT BE SAID OF MANY HUMANS. AS A MATTER OF FACT “KNOW THYSELF” IS ONE OF THE PRIME DIRECTIVES OF GREEK PHILOSOPHY. THOSE WHO ARE THREATENED BY YOU FEEL THAY WAY BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT COME TO TERMS WITH THEIR OWN INNER CORES.

    IF YOU ASK ME, AS LONG AS WE ARE ON THE SUBJECT OF GREEK CULTURE
    LYSISTRATA BY ARISTOPHANES IS AN INTERESTING FEMALE TRANSITION DRAMA. IN MY OPINION, EACH AND EVERY WAR MONGERING NATIONAL LEADER SHOULD BE REPLACED BY PEACEFUL WOMEN.

    THEY WOULD DISENFRANCHISE THE FED, BRING OUR TROOPS HOME,CLOSE THE MEXICAN BORDER AND JAIL THE GLOBAL WARMING/CLIMATE CHANGE HOAXERS AND FIND OUT WHO THE IDIOT WAS THAT DECIDED TO HOLD A GLOBAL WARMING CONFERENCE IN THE WINTER IN NORTHERN EUROPE. MY PICK WOULD HAVE BEEN JULY IN SUDAN.

  77. #77 by Arabia-Felix on December 19, 2009 - 3:03 am

    HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA,

    Did DARKMOON tunr out to be A PAGAN and A LESBIAN as well.

    HA HAAAAA.

    I should date her!!!.

    I will divorce Ruth Bernstein, such a boring person.

    BTW, who said anything about hating.

    We don’t hate anybody. We hate people who think that they can
    fool us, thos who rub on our faces their ideologies and theologies. Those who think all Human beings should be ALIKE.

    Those who infiltrate into our domain and want to change us,to make us DEVILS,just like they are.

    I don’t care if you are A PAGAN, or a lesbian.

    And, no, we shall not forget about our differences as suggest.

    We should be different, just stop doing CAST LEAD ON US.

    We are different, difference is good, it should be celebrated.

    If God wanted to be all man-kind ALIKE, he would have already done it…. The Qur’an teaches that.

    Why do you want all people to be ALIKE? I don’t.

    I do care when you want to indoctrinate kids to be JUS LIKE YOU.

  78. #78 by Arabia-Felix on December 19, 2009 - 3:07 am

    Wray Morehouse,

    Thank you dear for keeping in your heart the missery of the Pakistani villagers caused by MIGHTY AMERICA, under orderes of
    the ruling Jewish Calss.

    A nation that does such deeds will have no chance of survival.

    Definitely those nations before her which did the same
    DID NOT SURVIVE.

    Prodigal Son,

    Good to know some of us know what is going on.

    Good for you.

  79. #79 by Arabia-Felix on December 19, 2009 - 3:09 am

    Correction,

    If God wanted it to make ALL MAN-KIND ALIKE,he would have done it already… Qur’an.

  80. #80 by Arabia-Felix on December 19, 2009 - 3:17 am

    Michele,

    You don’t like men, that is because you tried the wrong men,
    and then went Lesbian.

    TRY ME, or LIKE ME, not necessarily me, but real man,like ME :);
    then my dear, see how things change for you.

  81. #81 by WRAY MOREHOUSE on December 19, 2009 - 6:23 am

    FELIX,

    FAIR ENOUGH. EVEN THOUGH I LIVE HERE, I WOULD BE SORELY DISAPPOINTED IF THIS NATION IS NOT PUNISHED FOR ITS EVIL HABIT OF STIMULATING ITS ECONOMY BY STARTING WARS.

    THEY ACCTUALLY SAID IT IN SO MANY WORDS DURING THE 30’S (WHILE PRESCOTT BUSH – GEORGE JR’S GRANDFATHER – WAS HELPING THEISSEN BUILD THE THIRD REICH):

    “WHAT THIS COUNTRY NEED IS ANOTHER WAR TO GET THE ECONOMY MOVING.”

    HOW SICK AND DEPRAVED WAS THAT?

    I SAY, LET’S MAKE PEACE TO GET THE ECONOMY MOVING.”

    Oh my Allah!
    those thoughts were in my brains its just that i couldnt put them in words!
    Michele, thanks for this,
    “There was a philosopher David Hume who believed that every human is born with the want and capacity to love and help each other, and that society, and what humans have created, has over shadowed this. In my eyes, these boys just proved him right. They took a step towards being human again.”

    Michele do you like Palestinians too?

  84. #84 by Michele Kathleen Moretti on December 19, 2009 - 11:59 pm

    I like Arthur Topham’s comment:

    Sweet, simple and not trying to argue with anyone.

    As for your “offer” Arabia Felix, I never said I don’t like men, I think you are just reading what you want to fulfill your “mission”. And I am sorry, but I do not think that someone who speaks such hate filled, separatist words is a real man; nor a true believer in God.

    If you wish to be called a real man, which your comment obviously shows you do, then perhaps you should speak softly and let people live. And we are actually all them same, whether you like to think so or not, just all of us being Human makes us the same. I’m not saying we should be cookie-cutter in personality and such, but it’s not hard to recognize that we are still the same thing, and to hate the same thing..well that’s just silly.

    I am sorry for what the US has done to you, but I assure you it was not the “Jews”, actually the majority of the politicians who voted on it, and even campaigned for it, are not Jewish. I can also assure you that not everyone in the US wants that to be happening to your home. For example, I do not wish that upon anybody, nor do my Jewish friends, nor do a lot of people.

    I hope things will be better for you in the Future, and I hope that maybe one day you can learn to love people for being people.

  85. #85 by Arabia-Felix on December 20, 2009 - 5:54 am

    Hey Michele,

    What is this nicey,nicey thing going on these days Huh??

    Most of the jews are all of a sudden sounding nice,of course,-
    while they are doing all things bad.

    See, i was thinking when i first read this story up,firstly,
    i knew it was written by someone whom doing good deeds is an
    alien to him, someone jew.

    Rest of us, we do good most of the time, to our disadvantage at
    times, and never feel anything but good about it.

    So i noticed of late, many of the jewish bull horns around are trying to teach us “how to be good to each other”, how to feel
    united, all humanity is one etc,etc!!.

    Teach me something Michele, teach me deception dearest;
    what is this new game of yours called??

    Does it carry a political gain for the Brotherhood of GOLDSTEIN?

    Well it does, but what is it, the gain you know!!.

  86. #86 by Arabia-Felix on December 20, 2009 - 6:32 am

    Let me guess, not that i am an expert of deception, God forbid,
    but let me guess anyway.

    Could this non-hate filled,unseperatist world of yours be the trastional period, the forunner to the Jew world order?.

    Amazing when you look at whom is it that is speaking of hate!!!!!.

  87. #87 by Ann Onomus on December 20, 2009 - 6:17 pm

    Hate? No. This is what has become wrong with society. You talk about natural order? Natural order would be that the kid would fall behind while some predator is chasing you and the rest of your family and would be eaten. That is natural order.

    What has become wrong is the fact that society now runs at that laggards level. Everything needs to be dumbed down to the lowest common denominator.

    And the rest of us who were lucky enough to be not saddled with developmental problems or physical or mental capacity issues have to operate at that level. Slows the whole herd down. Sorry, but I’m smart enough to wear a helmet on a motorcycle, doesn’t need to be legislated. Choose not, you die.

    Thin the herd, bleeding hearts, thin the herd.

  88. #88 by Jalid on December 20, 2009 - 7:23 pm

    Arabia Felix, Michele is ABOUT the thirteenth poster you attack in the few weeks you been here
    The Ugly truth is not for that..
    Over seventy poster have come here and respectfully posted, most ONE POST, and Thoughts that benefit humanity and help increase harmony and acceptance and love for others as is the intention of this story yet you, like the Trojan that you are, chock up the place with insults and accusations.
    Are you a bored old man?
    no wonder they kicked you out of that swedish site.

    One thing I praise is Mark Glenn’s patience.
    Ay ay ay

    ANN ONEROUS,

    “IN AS MUCH AS YE HAVE DONE IT TO THE LEAST OF THESE, YOU HAVE ALSO DONE IT UNTO ME.”

    “THIN THE HERD.” OK, LET’S START WITH THOSE WHO HAVE COLD HEARTS AND AN INABILITY TO UNDERSTAND COMPASSION. ONE OF OUR GRADUATES (IQ 80) STARTED A BUSINESS AFTER REHAB AND NOW DONATES
    $50,000.00 A YEAR TO THE PROGRAM. HMMM.

    I know, it is such a frustrating feeling when tricks don’t work out for some. After all, isn’t that what they are all about.

  91. #91 by Joe Cortina on December 30, 2009 - 6:09 pm

    TO MR WRAY MOREHOUSE: To my SHOCK!

    I was reading comments ( a bit later than normal) and saw something that almost startled me. I have not heard Yuri’s ( Thomas’s) name mentioned in over thirty years! I knew him back when I was doing much anti-Communist intelligence work – journalism – radio TV (before it was Jwew controlled) and travel.

    We spoke many times and each conversation betrayed his growing frustration with the stupidity of the American people and their inability to face reality and love of shallow self-indulgent diversions. Today – as we sit on the prespice total moral and economic meltdown – I understand Why he suffered. Yuri supposedly died of complications from Alcoholism. I know the REAL truth – he died of ‘quiet desparation’ – a ‘broken heart’. I remember it all too well – nobody would take him seriously. I still have some of his original literature – small phamphlets he attempted to distribute to warn us like the good ‘Watchman’ he was.

    The poor man did everything he could to ‘save’ us from what he saw happening right before our very eyes. He was more of a TRUE PATRIOT than most anyone I have know who was born here. He literally sacraficed his life’s energies for the freedom of America. What he encountered was the SAME criminally irresponsible moronic complacent selfish shallow attitude and moral rot – which has finally destroyed us today.

    May God rest his soul in peace for his effort to place the welfare of his fellow man ahead of himself. It was truly sad to watch such a brilliant and COURAGEOUS intellectual waste his life away for a nation who INSISTED on national suicide – and today – has finally succeeded – The ‘Disunited States of AmeriKa/IsraHELL.

    God help us – because we damn sure care nothing about helping ourselves. Wray – If by chance – you have read this – and you care to contact me – do so at winchester66@tampabay.rr.com
