      CO,

      In contrast to the word "sober", we should be filled with the Holy Spirit. Some people are sober, but still empty--just a thought. Thanks for another great word.

      I fear those who are "drunk" on power in this day and age.We need people who are sober and have stable beliefs.

      Thank you Benny Faye. Alcohol has caused so much suffering, bur so has the sin of unsober thoughts of greed, being selfish.

      God Bless

      Thank you creativeone for bringing that thought into focus. This world and all its technology has got people moving so fast, staying focused on what is really happening to us and our environment is a challenge. We need thoughts like this to bring us back.

      Peace and blessings

      We have to stay MORE alert than ever before. Americans and people from every corner of the world must be aware of the source of suffering. We have to be alert, of sound mind. We need to sort out the confusion that the world and America is mired in. God bless Faye.
