Craska Dor

For Death and Life
For Love and Duty
To see Beyond and look Behind
To Reminisce and Purpose Find
In all things Quiver, in all things Quail,
In all things the New Year Hail!

That's mine, don't touch it.

You may have heard of the saying, Money makes the world go round.  Close but very wrong, it's greed and not money.  Perhaps greed is too strong a word and carries too many negative connotations, self-interest instead then.  I put it to you that every action taken by any person is done so out of self-interest.  I defy any person to prove that wrong.  Before someone throws out the obvious giving one's life for another, let me point out that such an act epitomizes my point.  At its most basic level, such a situation requires that person A or person B dies.  If nothing intervenes, person A dies; however, in our scenario person B feels that dying in the place of person A is better than person A dying and so person B dies.  Person B did what person B wanted to do under those circumstances.  Even the story about the switch man who had to decide between saving the life of his four year old son on the bridge or the lives of the people on the train he must now either switch onto the bridge or into the chasm below is a story about one man doing what he wants.  The story always ends with the train speeding over the bridge and the man grieving the loss of his son.  Surely there was no self-interest involved!  Of course there was, the man would rather live with the death of his son than be responsible for hundreds dying should the train plunge into the chasm.  He absolutely must live with one or the other, the only real question is which horror does he want to live?

So, why did I write this?  Simply because I wanted to write it.  Just like you read it because you wanted to read it.

So, be honest and admit that everything you do, you do because you want to do it.  If that is a frightening thought, and likely it scares many of you witless, then perhaps you really aren't the person you think you are.

A Helping Hand

There are a number of charities and relief organizations that are sending aid to those needing help due to the tsunami and earthquakes (aftershocks are still being recorded throughout the region) victims, I personally recommend LDS Humanitarian Services.  100% of all donations go directly to those in need, as much as possible goods are purchased within the affected region to speed delivery and boost the local ecomony.  Regardless of where you donate, I would encourage you to give as much as you can and help bring some relief to these people in their time of need.

Humanitarian Services is responding to the current urgent situation caused by the earthquake and tsunami (tidal wave) in the Indian Ocean. To expedite response, goods will be purchased in the region where the help is needed as much as possible. Gifts of cash may be made on this website by selecting "Click to Make a Gift" in the upper left hand corner of the Humanitarian page or by clicking here. Purchasing goods within the country facilitates helps reduce shipping costs and avoids delays due to import and export regulations. It also boosts the economy in nations that are struggling with disasters.
