Well Said

I was walking through town a few days ago and saw a bumper sticker that said: "Live Simply, That Others May Simply Live".

I think that very nicely sums up some of the things that I have been trying to say in posts concerning the economic excess of some at the expense of the unmet needs of others. If everyone in this world would simply take only what they needed. I believe that there would enough to cover the needs of everyone and that no one would be homeless or starving.

There are those who say that people who live a lavish and extravagant lifestyle have perhaps worked hard and earned the money and the right to spend it any way they want. That is true, but does anyone really need massive homes on huge plots of land, a fleet of lavish, gas-sucking vehicles, designer clothes, jewelery, etc.? It would be better that these people would donate of their excess and live humbly and simply so that others' basic needs might met.

So Sayeth The Shack
