It's A Wonderful Strife!

The other night, I watched my all time favorite Christmas movie, Its A Wonderful Life. As I watched George Bailey run down the street in Bedford Falls, I had tears roll down my face. When the towns people came together in an adjutorious manner, my heart was filled with beautified elated emotions. I thought how wonderful people can be. It is a great feeling to know you have neighbors or family members that would help in such a kind, generous manner. However, my husband brought up an unfortunate point to me. He said that this act of generosity would not happen in today's world. I then thought if I was in Mr. Bailey's predicament, I could honestly say that I don't think I would be as fortunate as George. I see that we do live in a self-centered world where we come first before our friends and even our own family. Our world is revolved around Facebook, Twitter, iPads and advancements for our own self indulgences. If our neighbor George was in trouble, would we come through to help him? I love that movie because it was a much simpler time period. I think some of us forget about that time and we need to revisit it more often. Do we really like how we have become as a society? I guess we should re-evaluate our own self and ask us: if our neighbor, friend, or family member was in trouble, would we help them if they desperately needed it, even if we had to take something away from our own self in order to assist them? Happy Holidays to all and to all a good night!
