Down but not out. Yesterday I broke my record and did not pst to this blog. I would like to take this opportunity to apologize to my one fan… Sorry dad. (Sometimes I like to allow my imagination run wild and imagine that I have hundreds, no thousands no no millions of fans, but I know I really only have one, but I’m cool with that)
As with many apologies and offenses I have an excuse. I know excuses are a dime a dozen and poor replacements for the wanted an needed results, however in this instance my excuse will result in today’s post. Hmm did I just break a paradigm? (Ok a bit much your right)
Yesterday I couldn’t post because I was exploring the Georgia state national parks. If you ever get the chance to stay I and explore any of the Georgia state parks do yourself a favor and go! The national park system truly is a national treasure. The ride to the park I spent the weekend at was a five hour trek which took us through one of the states poorest counties and enough urban plight to negate any story by politicians about economic recovery. Seeing mils, plants, theaters entire streets and cities empty and abandoned. Made me think about the Rocky movies. You probably do not need to make a five hour trek to seethe depressing effects of the current worldwide toxic economy. But if you know anything about the Rocky movies you know that the formula for one of the most successful movie franchises in the world is simple. Rocky, a prizefighting heavy weight boxer, gets hit on the chin knocked down, but not out. Rocky digs in punches his way threw the storm and comes out victorious. I don’t know a lot but I do know this mankind has always found a way to survive and thrive we have dug quite hole for ourselves but likeRocky now is not the time to quit it is time to dig in and fight. The five hour trip was full of blight as well as people. These people need things, the same way they did before the crash and toxic economic situation and the needs of these people will not be meet through political policies. They will be meet trough action from neighbors and family members, working for each other and themselves.
