Explained by Budwick...

This presentation was sent to me by a friend. Parts of it made me feel uncomfortable. I wanted to share it here. Yes, I'm hoping you might feel some of the same discomfort. So that maybe we can all keep things in better perspective when debating important issues of the day. See all 13 slides at https://www.slideshare.net/morrisdj/lightning-in-a-jar Have a nice weekend guys.

That was beautiful Budwick. It's true we must see the good in this world. Everywhere I go I see good people with good hearts. I see bad people who were good people before and can be again. I have met some amazing people from all perspectives in many states of this nation (haven't hit the world yet but there's still time). We can do so much better than the world we have now. We just have to step up and recognize this. We need to have patience with people and discover why they do the things they do.

We need to understand how very fortunate we are to be living in the U.S.A. We need to understand that our similarities are so much greater than our differences.

Good message, though I can't help but wonder if some of those numbers are off.

Only one 1% of the world has a computer? I mean I know I was going to be surprised with that kind of number, but only 1%? I was thinking at least 3%-5% but I could be totally wrong.

I have a Commodore 64 under my mom's bed. Then again, I only own 50 % of it, since I bought it 50/60 with my best friend.
