Please forgive me for I have sinned.
I have worked hard so that I could improve my family’s life.
I believe that everyone is equal –and every life is valuable-no one race, color or religion is better than another.
I have always wanted to keep my fellow citizen’s safe at all costs and would fight to the death for that privilege.
I have actually made money and invested it into Company’s all based in the US.
(Perhaps I have contributed to the Wall Street debacle).
I have paid my fair share of taxes and contributed to lots of charities. I have given my hard earned $$$ and equally importantly my time to help others in need. And truth be known, I’d prefer not paying any more taxes.
I believe strongly that in America is the greatest Country in the world and in America all things are possible. But God knows (that’s you) we need Leadership
I have respected and appreciated our policemen, firemen, and servicemen. No, I don’t believe that policeman are “bad” and that they profile certain demographics without cause. I believe some policeman are bad….then again, some people are bad.
By in large I believe that most policeman try their very best to be fair, just and protect the public.
I believe that good Teachers should be paid more than Actors, Athletes and Entertainers. And I sure as heck don’t think the opinions of any of the above have any more credibility than mine.
I believe that those that work in jobs that none of us really would want, should be compensated and they should applauded every day. Yes, it’s true, I tip the gal in the McDonald’s drive in window.
Despite the # of times I have been disappointed in mankind, I continue to believe that there is good in most people. But I can’t say I believe that there is good in all people –Does that make me a horrible person?
I also believe that Satan created “The Devils” and when heinous crimes are committed .I believe in Hammurabi’s code, “An Eye for An Eye”. Is that a sin?
I have tried my very best to forgive, but I cannot tell a lie (you can’t lie to God), I have not always forgiven. To this day, I have sorrow in my heart that will never heal.
As much as I believe that my Parents are in Heaven….and Heaven is a better place, I’d love to have them back home with me. Am I selfish?
And God, I know I’m not supposed to HATE–but I HATE Cancer!
So Dear Lord, please forgive me for all my shortcomings and not being perfect.
Although I believe perfection is greatly overrated, I suppose I should try harder and perhaps strive for perfection. Although I must say, Jesus Christ –your son was perfect –well almost. When he was on that Cross, he was pretty darn mad at you –and I “kinda’ don’t blame him. Yes, I know he saved our souls, but couldn’t there have been an easier way? Okay, maybe I should not have mentioned that.
I can hear you now saying, “For that last statement alone…. Please say 1 Act of Contrition, 3 Hail Mary’s and 3 Our Father’s. Or maybe I should say a Novena?
One more thing…. Thank you Lord –say “hi” to my parents for me.
