A Kernel of Truth...

I saw this recently and thought it was too good not to post. It is the philosophy of Peanuts creatory Charles Schultz, who passed away not too long ago. This isn't one you have to answer and pass along, just read it and think about it...

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America Contest.

4. Name ten people who have won th Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.

5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor or actress.

6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.

The point is, none of us remembers the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. The awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Here are some more questions. See if you can answer these any better.

1. List a few teachers who aided you along your journey throught school.

2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.

3. Mane five people who have taught you something important.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

Easier??? The people who make a difference in you life are not the ones with the most credentials or money...they are the ones that care. All that said...I would enjoy spending time with the three bois in these picutres...I could certainly find something to appreciate about each of them (for instance, they all look like they are real nice to their mothers) I know, I know... I'm going straight to hell...

Wow, I really liked this post and I could see right away where these questions were going as far as a meaning. That is just so true and it is one of the reasons I never watch award shows.
