Everything I know

I've stayed away from Facebook these last few days. Anytime there is a tragedy or social issue that comes to light, I take a step back and stay clear of the fray.  

No one wants to hear what I have to say one way or the other. Nothing I can say will change your minds on gender, abortion, religion, politics, race, or equality. There are many factors that influence what we believe.

I know what I believe in my heart, but what if it's like the old Firesign Theatre skit, and everything I know and believe is wrong?

  1. I always assume that anything I think might be wrong, so I do my best not to judge. I don't always succeed, but I try.

  2. Every once and a while people can change my mind. Not very often though. I go by the old saying, "Often wrong, but never in doubt."

  3. Tragedy or social issue forces all to re-examine what they they think, believe, or feel.
    We must always always hold fast to our core.

  5. It is a very sad time and I agree with what you wrote here. Sometimes it's hard to do but it's often the best

  6. There are millions of people who do not understand this wise statement (Not that you are so wise but might have stumbled on the truth,LOL)
    quote Rick: "There are many factors that influence what we believe."

    Yep, and many folk stumble over that. :-(

  7. Your beliefs are personal and you have a right to them. Just as I have a right to mine. That is why I shy away from political discussions on my blog. I like a good discussion but it is too hard to have a rational discourse when you cannot see the other person's face.

  8. Im the same as you. I want to shy away from any news and look to the happy things in life instead.

  10. I'm reminded of the old saying, "My mind is made up. Don't confuse me with facts."

  11. I deactivated--not deleted--my Facebook page recently. I can activate it again if I want it. For now, I don't. I don't want to read all the self-important opinions and ravings of confused or even deranged minds. I read and watch just enough news to have an idea of what's going on in the world. That's all I can take.

    Love,
    Janie
