First We Must Live

First We Must Live

I liked this advertisement for the movie sequel to the 300 coming out this week.

Anyway, for this scary-looking dude, “War is in my blood”–that’s who he is and these days, it seems like he is not alone in this crazy and violent world.

Some people are like that…they always like to fight, be oppositional, or just be difficult.

My belief is more like Ecclesiastes–that there is a time and place for everything…”a time for war and a time for peace.”

Around the globe, there seems to be plenty of fighting, slaughter, and tensions going on…from Damascus to Kiev, from Iran to Venezuela, from Sudan to the South China Sea, and more.

I heard what I thought was a good saying on the Game Of Thrones Season 3 (which by the way is totally excellent), it went like this:

“If we die, we die, but first we will live.”

Let’s hope and pray for more peaceful, stable, and pleasant times.

There is yet much to live for. 😉
