feb 23....my shoes
The topic of shoes made me think about where we walk, physically and mentally. Jocelyn posted a FB link of a woman who stood up in an airplane vs the man viewing child porn on his iPad. I really was interested in the comments of people who had replied to Jocelyn's posting. It was rather pathetic by one....so many excuses. I tried to think it was just a matter of trying to fix the original thoughts, but I also think it was a way to make oneself seem so accepting and loving. I think the time to take that stance is long past...either in shoes or out of them. But it's hard at times. No one ever wants to offend a friend or a family member but there are times that offense is not what is intended but instruction is.
I think it's time to find which shoes actually pinch our toes enough to allow us to stand and toss the shoes, figuratively, at those who are so stupid. Evil is rampant. Yet sometimes what we see as innocence is not viewed the same way as others see it, sadly.
So let's see what kind of shoes you are wearing today? Are you willing to speak up and be heard OR shut up and allow evil to continue, even if for only a plane ride?
