Vacationing last week, just over the dunes from Lake Michigan, I was disconnected from my Internet and Cable News. What a peaceful time it was!
I could still use my smart phone to monitor urgent e-mails and texts, but I wasn’t able to keep up on the Washington “scandals” or other moral, economic, and international issues, which I usually concern myself with on a daily basis.
After returning home last Saturday I spent the day doing laundry, grocery shopping, and fulfilling family needs. By Sunday afternoon I had some free time, but still didn’t desire to catch up on the news.
Today is Wednesday and I have a lingering disinterest in issues that don’t affect my immediate life…a strange feeling for me. When checking my Yahoo mail I’ve been momentarily tempted to look into the top stories…but for almost two weeks now I have stopped myself with the thought, “Don’t even look, it’s just gonna be a controversy, and those cause stress and require a response from the conscionable person.”
It’s very easy to get complacent in America!
Even while Christians are being killed in Syria, Common Core and the Homosexual Agenda is enveloping our Public Schools, the national debt is almost 17 Trillion, and three black teens in Oklahoma just murdered a white man because they were “bored”…it is still possible for me to live “unaware.”
“Man on the Street” interviews by Jay Leno, Jesse Waters, and others, reveal the enormous ignorance in our society. And it’s not just the young “skulls of mush” (college students) who are woefully ignorant. It’s Dad and Mom…too tired or preoccupied to stay informed and get involved.
I understand and it’s tempting…but I’m not going to join them.
