May 2011 Archives

The damage resulting from the recent tornadoes in Mississippi and Alabama has resulted in an outpouring of support from friends, neighbors, community organizations, and churches. We were fortunate to not suffer any damage in our immediate area but we could the next time.

I am happy with the support being given but I am also worried about the lessons being taught to our youth. I have seen numerous news reports featuring high school students who have made statements along the lines of: "I am helping because I would expect people to help me"; "You should help people because you get so much in return". Wrong! Parents, you need to teach your children that they should help others because it is the RIGHT thing to do. You do not help people for selfish reason of expecting anything in return--even feeling good about yourself. Sure, you can feel good about helping others but that is not why you should help others.
