Reaching Beyond Myself

They way I see it......
which I'm thankful for.......
There are only a few things in my life that I know my belief structure won't change, other than that, I'm an open person, especially to being challenged, provoked, or stirred.
I've never been a big fan of Michael Moore, primarily because of what I had heard about him, not based on anything I had discovered for myself. I stand corrected on much of what I believed about him. No, I don't think he's a saint, I just find him to be powerfully inspiring. Yesterday, I watched his movie "Sicko" Mostly, because I am very passionate about health care in this country, especially having lived in a country with socialized medicine (Italy) This movie provoked in me a deep level of fear and awe. Fear because I can't imagine remaining in the USA......it's no secret I would take my family to Europe and live a very productive, happy life there. Awe that Americans don't know many of the ills of this "Big Business". Like which politician is in bed with which health insurance company. I am appalled at what I've settled for as an American citizen, honestly. Perhaps it's because I've had some serious medical conditions that have required me to be personally involved, I don't know......what I do know is that this film has provoked me. I STRONGLY encourage everyone to see this film. It will change the way you think of our government and this great country.
On a lighter note......
we are snowed and iced in this morning, so no church. WOW, this is a new idea to our Floridian folk. (granted we're from Michigan, but it's been awhile) It's so funny because here in Missouri, if a few inches of snow fall, everyone leaves work early, but when it's combined with ice....watch out.....EVERYTHING shuts down. Is it snowing or raining right now? nope, it did and it might later, but at the moment it's completely clear out........I just chuckle........no worries, I'm enjoying my snowed in day and hoping it lasts through tomorrow so I get to stay home from work too!!
That's the way I see it anyway ;)
