Home Opinions What's your plan? (05/26/2020)

Some things are just more important than others. I like to order matters at this season of my life as good, better, and best. Remember that person, place, or thing? It would be best to immediately recall from an early age that the last sentence defines a noun. Nouns make up the largest class of words in the English language, in most languages for that matter, and will be the focus of attention in the sentence.

The noun is best used in combination with other words to form sentences and these help us to express ourselves. Sentences help to convey ideas and can lead to working out problems. This is a good thing. Especially when smoothing things over to create unity and harmony. Communication is one of the best treasures in this world. Do we do enough of it?

There are those that are quite apt at speaking. I don’t feel I’m very good at it and I find myself starting to avoid it. What helps me is keeping the 2-1 rule in mind. I am comfortable at declaring this as one of those tender mercies our loving Eternal Father places before us as a sign for remembrance. Too many of us make it one of God’s mysteries. It breaks down simply (and quite wonderfully) that we all have two ears and one mouth for a reason. The lightbulb should come on (before opening the mouth when staring someone in the face) that it is best to listen twice as long and talk half as much.

There are politicians and lawyers. Can you see where I might be heading with this? A person cannot accomplish much these days without a struggle with the legalese. I had to register the Girls before being allowed to view their class schedule at Pierce again this year. Not much changes over the years as to crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s, and neither has to check the box as to testify that all the documentation has been carefully scrutinized before continuing progress toward the present endeavor. There is a curse upon the land as lawyers seem to propagate exponentially. Let’s not get started on politicians.

Less talk, more action! It would be best to not just hear sounds spew from the mouth, but perfect listening skills. Twice as long, or more so, than flapping the gums. It probably would not hurt to echo what is being said. You might be familiar with the quote that I know that you believe that you think you understand what you thought you heard me say, but what you don’t realize is that what you heard is not what I meant (I like to attribute sayings to the person responsible for coining them, but all my references indicate it’s origin past my college years. Mom used it numerous times for teaching moments in my elementary school years).

Less of what we can wax eloquently at and more listening, understanding, and empathizing will go a long way to easing over festering frustrations that have thrust in as our nation’s current narrative. Keep it simple! Another ‘fixit’ is to put God back into everything that we have taken him out of and love thy neighbor. Stop trying to complicate things! Separating us is not the answer and should be clearly seen as an enemy’s best weapon.

There are no white-Americans, or grey-Americans, or whatever-Americans; it is just us, Americans! Time to become part of the solution and stop driving the wedge.
