Are you doing what you really wish you were doing today?

There was an explosion at a fertiliser plant in Texas during the night. Firefighters were in the process of battling the fire of a smaller explosion, when a huge explosion took out blocks of surrounding homes. The injury and fatality numbers are still unknown, but it looks grim. I don’t believe it’s being treated as suspicious, but those details won’t surface until later. I hope for the best, and the people affected are in my prayers.

We, the people of the developed world, have a tendency to take for granted the peace of our existence. That is not to belittle our struggle, but rather to recognise that we live in an environment of bounty and freedom, devoid of the persistent terror of war.

This presents a question. Are you doing what you really wish you were doing today? If not, then why not? You have the option to change and adapt the world to match your mode of living. You can morph the world into whatever you want it to be. You can quite literally do anything. However for some, the place they just so happen to live in dictates that such liberties aren’t even idle concepts — make use of your freedoms.
