Another Monday, the last Monday in July already. Can believe how fast this year is flying by? And Melanie has given us another Share Your World challenge. Let’s get to it.
What mythical creature would improve the world most if it existed? (If you don’t know, just choose something that you think would improve things.)
How about a benevolent genie who would grant three wishes? What would be my three wishes to improve the world that I would ask the genie to grant? I don’t know. Maybe Melanie can ask that question in a future edition of Share Your World.
Should the death penalty be re-instated? Why or why not?
Wait. The death penalty in the U.S. has already been reinstated. Back in 1972, the Supreme Court banned the death penalty in the United States, ruling that the punishment, as applied, was unconstitutional. But then, in 1976, the Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty.
Today, 24 states allow the death penalty. 23 states have abolished capital punishment altogether. Three states, California, Oregon, and Pennsylvania, have governor-issued moratoriums in place, halting executions in the state.
How do I feel about the death penalty? I am not in favor of it. And what surprises me, but shouldn’t, is how many of those who say they’re pro-life are also pro-death penalty. I guess they feel that the life of a fetus is worth more than the life of a person.
Spontaneity or stability?
I think a well rounded person can experience both spontaneity and stability as the occasion and circumstances call for.
Can a dog/cat suffer? What about an ant? What about a plant? What about a bacteria cell? Why do some humans think we’re the only species that does suffer? Your thoughts?
I don’t know about ants, plants, or bacteria cells, but if you’ve ever seen a dog suffering during fireworks or thunderstorms, you know they suffer. Same with cats when in pain. Why do some humans think we’re the only species that does suffer? Because they are egotistical and probably believe every word in the Bible.
What are two things that have brightened your day today?
I’ll let you know as soon as they happen.
