A Time For Heart

EVERYTHING WE ARE GOING THROUGH WAS PREDICTABLE.

We have eyes to see, so we can navigate safely, you see an obstacle in your path when walking, well you avoid it.

We have ears to hear, and alert us to whatever noise we hear, if it’s not normal, example being at home relaxing in your bedroom doing whatever, and hearing a loud noise away in the Livingroom when you know you are alone.

    2. Makes sense. However, the Trade Center was a building, and people understand buildings even if they had never been there personally. The don’t see a political party or injustice or a heart attack in the same way.

    3. He was a tradesman and International Rep for the UAW – so he was putting it in framework of factory workers – And he saw many of his fellow workers ignore, even what was going on in the UAW or GM until it was their plant to be closed or their job to be trashed.

    4. Yep, I can totally understand that. The old American version of “when they came for me, there was no one left to speak up.”
