What are we sick of?

Maybe it’s just a trend in my neighborhood.  But has anyone noticed that clinics are popping up over town like retail stores?

Like new fast-food chains, it’s just a matter of days before the parking lots are full.

The advertisements could double for generic promotions of new tire lube services or fast-food joints:  “new convenient location, fast, friendly service.”  Doctors have display ads in the Sunday paper.

Are we really that sick?

The #1 killer in this country is heart disease.  However, 2 of the top 10 slots for best-selling medications are anti-psychotic drugs. With all of these new clinic grand-openings, why aren’t we treating what’s wrong?

Could it be that we are dying from a broken heart?

Don’t Cry

Filed under: Christianity — Tags: , , , — yalandarose @ 11:45 pm

I want to cry because:

I’m lonely – so is the girl who lost her parents
I’m scared – so is the child diagnosed with cancer
I’m hurt – so is the boy who is abused and neglected
I’m unemployed – so is the husband facing eviction
I’m angry – so is the victim of a heinous crime
I’m anxious – so is the family of a missing child
I’m depressed – so is the sibling of a drug addict
I’m hopeless – so is a victim of human-trafficking
I’m saving my tears – so I can save someone else
