I love this speach

I'm sorry, but I don't want to be an Emperor - that's not my business. I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone, if possible -- Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another; human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there's room for everyone and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful.
But we have lost the way.
Greed has poisoned men's souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical, our cleverness hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost.
The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men, cries out for universal brotherhood for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people.
To those who can hear me I say, "Do not despair." The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed, the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass and dictators die; and the power they took from the people will return to the people and so long as men die, liberty will never perish.
Soldiers: Don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you, who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel; who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men, machine men, with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts. You don't hate; only the unloved hate, the unloved and the unnatural.
Soldiers: Don't fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the seventeenth chapter of Saint Luke it is written, "the kingdom of God is within man" -- not one man, nor a group of men, but in all men, in you, you the people have the power, the power to create machines, the power to create happiness. You the people have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.
Then, in the name of democracy, let us use that power! Let us all unite!! Let us fight for a new world, a decent world that will give men a chance to work, that will give you the future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power, but they lie! They do not fulfill their promise; they never will. Dictators free themselves, but they enslave the people!! Now, let us fight to fulfill that promise!! Let us fight to free the world, to do away with national barriers, to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness.

R.I.P Mellisa

Today at round 10:30 Am, I had to make the most difficult desicion Iever.

Poor little Mellisa Had not been well for some time, she had developed a lump on her stomach.
It got worse over the space of time and we had to take her to the vets. 

We took her on the wednesday of this week, the vet at the time said that he thought he may be able to remove the lump and asked us to bring mellisa back on the friday, Which we did. 

So We drop her at the vets. Me and mom go to the city and have some breakfast.
We are doing some shopping and we get a call. I pass the phone to my mother. 

My mom breaks in to tears and passes the phone to me. 
I ask the vet what is happening and she told me the bad news.

It was a tumor on her stomach, and that it had grown very deep and that even if they was to try and remove it that the tumor would come back. and the said that they wanted to put her to sleep and needed permisson to do so. 

I said I needed a minute to decide , they said I needed to make the desicion very soon as she was asleep under drugs and it would be cruel to wake her up to put her back to sleep again.

I calmed my mother down, and Called back and gave permission for her to be put to sleep.
I have never had to make such a tough call in my life , Mellisa even though is a cat was one of my best friends and part of the family. 

I miss her so very much already and I am so sorry to her for making the desicion that I had to make. but it was for the best and she is pain free now. 

love you Mellisa 

See you again one day

No computer

I had my computer for about two or three years now, and untill a few months ago everything was fine.

I noticed that it was starting to slow down a little so I did the routine stuff...virus scans, defraggin and compressing and deleting files that might slow it down.

but still it was running slow, one day just a few weeks ago after work I turn on my computer and up comes a message saying that the hard drive is about to fail. I try everything I know to fix it but it was a loosing battle , my computer started to freeze almost every few hours and I would have to wait sometimes up to twenty minutes for my computer to start up. 

Eventually I took drastic measures, I restored my computer to factory settings, I saved as much as I could to my flashdrive and hit the button and restored to factory settings. 

it seemed to do the trick ...or atleast I thought it did. 
for about a day it seemed fine. then it started all over again, the slow down and freezing. time was running out. I had no choice , I had to either get a new computer or try to get this one repaired. I really didnt want to be without because my computer is my main way of talking to my Beautiful Jenn.

 I decided I would have to send my dying computer in for repairs. and a few small upgrades..Bigger hard drive.

I sent my computer in, and the man said all that he would do and said would take a few days. 
I had not been without a computer in years, I felt like a part of me was gone.

I know that there is a lot more to life than a computer screen, I work 40+ hours every week so the actual time I spend on my computer is around three hours a day.  but still felt a bit odd getting home and not having it there to go on.

I have my Galaxy s3 wich is more or less a computer in its self , so atleast I could speak with my Jenn through that. Without my computer to go on I started to wonder what to do in the time I would usually go on it.  

in total I was without my computer for a week, but now I have it back and can talk to my Jenn again with ease, and can book my next flight to go see my Jenn on the 25th of august. YAY!!!

One thing I did notice,, or should I say thought about while I was without my computer is Just how dependend people are becoming on technology, and while it is a good thing and can bring people together it is also doing the opposite at the same time and is taking the human part out of social interaction.

My Job   was recently not so sure as we went in to administration for a breif period.  due to alot of elements but one key element is online markets. and its not just my company that has been effected, but so many jobs have been lost due to people not going in to a store on the high street anymore but instead purchasing goods online.  

This in a way worries me because years from now it could be even worse...people wont go out anymore, the streets will be empty and there will be no markets or stores, all you will see is truks or vans delivering goods to houses that people have orderd ONLINE.  and people will just talk to eachother on their computers. 

I know that is a very extream case and I doubt...no I hope it will never get as bad as that. 
My mom says that she will not shop online because she likes to go to a store and feel and smell the freshness of the food and items she is buying. She is 64 and part of the older generation, but the newer generation is very dependant on the tech of today and while it is a amazing thing it could be a double edge sword and society must be carful how it is used or it could do more damage than good.

Rant over
Just something for us all to think about I guess.
