The Mission....

... Back in the late '60s, a few local Lads & Myself used 2go2 the Motorcyclin circuits on a Sunday mornin, we used 2 meet up at Dave's house 7-30 am, 4 coffee & dippers...Can U imagine that ?, a 6 pack of M/Cs, pullin in2 Yr drive at that time of a mornin & on a SUNDAY... back in those days Sundays were 4 goin 2 Church, mowin the lawns, washin the cars & general pottin abt in the garden... But us Group of Guys, sadly had other things on our minds, We were far from bad Guys, We all worked hard, We ALL had respect, we nvr smoke drank or smoked in public & nvr used bad language either, We nvr got in2 fights with the Mods either... nor with the Rockers... We were jus a group of Lads doin Lads things... NOW... A Young lady who lived opposite our meetin place was our " Grump " She was always complainin 2 us & the police, so We actualy Cut our engines & pushed our bikes in2 out Friends Yard, We thought We would kick in with the respect part, But She jus did'nt like us...
She must have told Her Father, a retired VICAR... One Sunday as We were abt 2 set off, He came from His Daughters house, & stood in the driveway, blockin our path, He has His Bible in His hands & began readin 2 Us,
Well 2 cut it way down short, On a Sunday night, We all ended up at His place, a smart bungalow, & drank His coffee & ate His dippers... it turned out He had a passion 4 motorbikes, He also was A Cristian, & says He was a Guardian Angel... ?.... We mainly talked, read the Bible, & he tried 2 convert us all..., I think We kinda converted Him after a while, So what I'm tryin 2 say here is that We were jus the same at His home, as We were anywhere else, & once we got 2 kn Him & Him Us...We learned a lot from Him, He was'nt a nosey old sod at all, He was a GOOD Man, doin Gods work, He realy believed in Us, & helped us in many ways...He told us that there was Good & Bad in Everyone, & it is OUR choice in Life which path We choose 2 take, When He passed away, a few year later, We felt We had lost a dear Friend... We All went 2 His service, He would have been proud of us, all wearin SUITS, instead of Jeans n tee shirts...Bless Him...Chris.....

It's NICE 2B Important...but it's more Important 2B NICE...Chris.....

This Just In...

Prisons and jails added more than 1,000 inmates each week for a year, putting almost 2.2 million people, or one in every 136 U.S. residents, behind bars by last summer.
The total on June 30, 2005, was 56,428 more than at the same time in the government reported Sunday. That 2.6 percent increase from mid-2004 to mid-2005 translates into a weekly rise of 1,085 inmates. Of particular note was the gain of 33,539 inmates in jails, the largest increase since 1997, researcher Allen J. Beck said. That was a 4.7 percent growth rate, compared with a 1.6 percent increase in people held in state and federal prisons.

Wow...I just finished this thread...many different views on this...I like to add my thoughts getting back to a more positive note.

I really don't know how to put it into words but if you live your life doing something positive for others....eventually it will make it's way back to you....sort of like that movie "Pass it Forward"....

A small story to add....When I was a teenager I took a class trip to all the hustle and bustle we were in a Paris train station going up the stairs and it must have been rush hour cause it was packed prob five across .....I couldn't believe it when a woman two rows behind me yelled, "..madam..madam" as she flashed me my pink wallet which I had dropped. I was dumbfounded at first because I couldn't believe that I had been so life for the next two weeks was in that wallet! From that day on I have never forgotten that woman's face and have always kept that random act of kindness close to me and passed it forward.... and because of that if this makes any sense to you at's amazing the things that have fallen in my path.....

I am having a lot of fun with this thread. If you please I do believe that this quote comes from David Hobbes. You can find it in his Leviathan.
