Grim or Grand

“We can see the world as grim or grand. It’s up to each of us to decide”




Are you tired of all the political chatter? Trump, Clinton…constantly in the news. Yes, it’s sometimes fascinating to watch in disbelief what is going on but sometimes doesn’t it just drive you crazy? No matter which side you are on this year…and it seems they are polar opposites…you are passionate about your candidate. I certainly don’t want to get into politics on this blog. I believe everyone has a right to their own opinion. But I do want to use the above quote as an example. We hear so much bad news.  All the time. Floods, hurricanes, fires,and in winter snow storms…devastation. People losing their lives and their homes. War, bombings, killings… suffering. All over the world which makes you cry for humanity. We see so much. We hear so much. Inside we wonder what is happening to our world. Global warming, extinction of animals, rain forest deforestation….our planet in danger. It is hard to be positive. But here I sit. In my own little happy world. I don’t have to wonder where my next meal is coming from. I don’t have to worry about a bomb going off nearby. My world is happy. Because of circumstances and because I choose it. When I hear a candidate telling me how bad United States is, how the people are suffering, how we need to exclude people it makes me wonder how grateful he is that we are living in the best country in the world. We are so fortunate. Our country is strong. Our country is mighty. Our standard of living is high even for those on welfare who have access to a Walmart or grocery store. We need to see the world as grand while having compassion for our fellow men.


  1. What an amazing, well-spoken post, Peggy! "Just build a better you" is the best thing one person can do!!! Take care!

  2. People with high incomes are always worried about tax raids in every country so they desire to have an opportunity to keep their money at some secret place where it cannot be accessed by Income Tax department. One of the best options to save your additional profits is to access offshore bank accounts where one can save as much as profits with very few formalities of account opening and management.
