    A friend sent this over and I thought it applied nicely to this thread.

    I think I need to see a therapist...

    I'm not saying always, but many times... we simply just need someone (set of ears) outside of our circle of friends/family/associates that we can vomit our feelings/thoughts upon. No worries of it coming back to bite us. I struggle with X, I think about Y, I'm great at A but fail at B, I hate M and don't give a rat's behind about L, so on and so forth. Over the years, I'm less and less under the illusion that the person needed to accomplish this needs to be a 'therapist'. Especially with the caliber of therapist I see more and more. There is a great weight that can be lifted by simply verbalizing things out loud. This in part, is a small reason, why I think Bishops are such a valuable tool to many members... they just need to share X with someone in confidence.
  5. Just having fun for a moment... In the Book of Mormon 3 Nephi 11-28 we read about the people enjoying about 200 years of peace and Enoch type bliss, after the Savior's visit. The next 100 years, call them years 201-300, we are told they did “dwindle in unbelief and wickedness, from year to year” By time we get to year 301, they have fallen all the way to: * I don't know what trafficking they are specifically referring to, but I have my guesses.
  6. (I'm just poking the bear for a moment... 😉) Couldn't all of those things also be done without any love for your fellow man, but rather simply out of self interest/gain? Ex. 1. To avoid a peasant revolution, the monarchy decides..."We better get these villages clean water before they come slaughter us in our sleep". 2. We better pass out free money or reparations to the masses under the flag of fighting poverty, only in an effort to secure their votes. 3. War can be avoided or halted out of self preservation, wiriness or blood shed... but not because they love their enemy. Love could be the 'cause'. But... So could self interest. I think I'm getting old and pessimistic about govt. & organizations. I don't want to be this way and definitely didn't go looking for it, but I feel like they have brought this upon themselves.
  7. I suppose a lot of it depends on what we all define as 'better'. Is it: 1. Poverty levels dropping, clean water, living standards, access to goods, etc. OR 2. Moral compass, desire to follow God, service to mankind, adherence to the commandments, loving your fellow man, etc. OR Both I believe #1 is better while at the same time believe #2 is unfortunately getting worse, namely here in the USA.

    Requiring a COVID-19 Vaccine (shot/s)

    Luigi Warren, currently the CEO and President of California-based biotech firm Cellular Reprogramming, and Derrick Rossi, co-founder of Moderna, are considered pioneers of mRNA technology. Luigi Warren - Censored on Twitter for simply saying the following: Why? Pfizer’s former Chief Scientist Mike Yeadon - banned on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube and Instagram. Why? (sorry don't know why the video is so huge). 34a97a8c3e6b42dc.mp4 Time and time again, any dissenting opinion of the jab is scrubbed off of the tech giant sites.

    Requiring a COVID-19 Vaccine (shot/s)

    The EUA use vs. full FDA approval, is only one factor among several reasons why I will continue to decline the vaccine(s). If EUA is synonymous with full approval, then they should label them as full approval and remove this obstacle for many hesitant individuals. If they are not synonymous, then we can't pretend that EUA products are just as good as fully approved products that have had longer follow up periods for efficacy. Q: Anyone know if I got the jab today, how long would I be protected for? In other news... Should those in a low-risk demographic risk Covid or risk injecting themselves with these exported doses of J&J?

    Requiring a COVID-19 Vaccine (shot/s)

    This, among other reasons, is why many of us won't take it. I naively already thought everyone knew they weren't approved by the FDA. (Thanks Facebook, Twitter, Youtube for suppressing things.) This is the argument about being involved with the largest trial test ever conducted on humankind.
