“Love, Long Term”
The Incredible Intensity of Human Love Knows No Bounds. Neither Angels Nor Members of The Food Chain Pyramids Come Anywhere Close to This Feature of Our Species. Such a Unique Ability Requires Capacity in Spades. We Begin by Making Things with Erector Sets or Doll Houses of which we’re rightfully proud. Then, we progress to Snow Forts and Sand Castles which pleased us at the time and remain pleasant memories. In schools we wrote reports, stories and poems; eventually we graduated and became permanently proud of our collective accomplishments.
The Spectrum Widens as We Choose Career Paths. We Strive to Work Smart and Hard for Long Hours to Create a Resume of Achievement, which will stabilize our lives and those of our families. Along the Way, We Build Personal Monuments to Display Visible Collections of Memorabilia (Photos of People, Places and Things we Love) in our Office Cubicles and Dens; on Facebook Home Page Walls and Internet Site Personal Profiles, Such as RHP). At Many Funeral Home and Cemetery Services, Those Selfsame Tangible Objects and Heirlooms of Our Affection and Love are Present as Reminders of the Unique Person Family Members and Friends Still Love, Even as They Celebrate the Life while Mourning the Passing.
Live On Earth Didn’t Begin Accidentally By Whim or Freak Event in Some Mysterious Back Room Vacuum. Such an Intricate, Multi-Faceted, High Level Performing Creature Fulfills Its Creator’s Design and Plan. Nor Is The Result of Incidental Importance. Do We Even Dare Presume That An Unfathomable Affection; Character (or Virtue Dependent) Love; As Well As Personal Love Are Not Present and Of a Quality/Duration We Cannot Even Begin to Appreciate or Imagine? If True, How Can We Rationally Support the Popular View Within Our Waist-High Culture That Human Beings Have Been Designed and Made to Live a Few Fleeting Decades and Then Get Treated as Disposable? Bodies, Yes. They’ve Served the Purpose for Which They Were Given. Human Spirit and Soul, I Think Not. What an Insult to Suppose Otherwise. When Does This Twilight of Commonsense Recede To Allow The Dawning Light of Objective Reason and Pragmatic Comparison to Our Own Behavior Intervene? If Not, Then What?
