"It doesn't have to be that way." For you, what is the "it" in that sentence?
I had been listening to a Willie Nelson album and the lyrics, "It's not supposed to be that way..." were still running through my head when I was talking with a neighbor. We were discussing the ugly sight of the oil wells visible right off the coast at Huntington Beach, CA (Surf City USA).
Often we assume things in life are "just that way". However, what is the "it" that you feel "doesn't HAVE to be that way". What can one do to change that kind of "it". I posted this image on FB and received interesting responses, I'm wondering what YOURS are. Cheers, Billie
It can be absolutely anything and absolutely everything. If you think that the world should be different somehow, that "it" is the part of the world that should be different.

Hating people for no good reason - shouldn't have to be that way.

Statistics show, as of 2013 anyway, that:1. Reported abortion rates in the US is the same in 2014 as it was in 1973, pre-Roe v Wade. "Reported" is key because a very high number of abortions prior to 1973 were illegal and went unreported. After Roe v Wade, the reported...

With his numbers crumbling with women, the Republican Establishment realizes that there's no way they can give him the nomination of their party. He finally offended one group too many with his statements against Megyn Kelly, a woman's right to choose, and Cruz's wife.

Is open-mindedness really a virtue if truly destructive ideas are spreading in society?
