Mankind has existed on the earth for at least two million years give or take a century or two. Humankind has through the centuries had to figure out how to survive the onslaught of nature, other people, aging, and just the ability to live another day. Most of us try not to think about not being around anymore. At some point in time we as individuals will have our life cycles terminated by natural or other forces beyond our control.
What one does with the time he or she is allotted in this “veil of tears” which we all survive in is up to the individual to leave a mark for the times of your life . Life will go on when you are gone. That is a given. We are all born onto life with certain abilities that few others have. The challenge is to find out what we can accomplish not only to help ourselves but also to help others.
There are those who as they say throw away their live to drugs, crime or deviant behavior or just not caring one way or another about themselves or anybody else. These naysayers have always been there, and will never go away. We all have the ability at some point in our lives to make what we call intelligent choices. If you are there. Do your homework.
