    Nice Viewpoint

    The following is attributed to Andy Rooney, but I do not think he wrote, or spoke these words. I like it, and don't really care who wrote it, but I would give them credit if possible. It actually has multiple authors. I don't believe in Santa Claus, but I'm not going to sue...

    With my eyes, I can see the blue

    that belongs to the sky but doesn't exist, while I cannot see God, who does exist. Please God let me see, but don't give afflictions that could come my way; And let me see and give blessings that life brings. Amen!!

    I'm not religious but I'm not atheist.

    Every night I pray for the health and wellbeing of everyone, because I feel like it would be too selfish to ask for anything for myself.

    One of my earliest posts here was about the God

    I believe in, a God of love, a God of forgiveness, a God of compassion. Praying that God is something I do very often, several times a day. I pray for strength, I pray for those I love, I pray when I am happy and I pray when I'm broken. But mostly, I give daily prayers of...

    That life would end soon

    because I'm an excuse of a human being and is taking too much space and oxygen. I should just die and go to the underworld where I belong. I'll donate my organs so other valuable humans can live on.

    Sometimes, when I choose "Post"

    after writing responses I question whether or not it is right. Never do I want to pass judgement, as that is not my place. I can only pray I help someone decide as to whether or not I help someone realize what they already know. God be with us all, in all ways of life. Amen.
