Do guns protect people or kill people? Or both?
In theory, they do both. But in reality, they kill way more people than they ever protect. Having free access to guns is dangerous and often a threat to the gun owners themselves. There should be laws restricting the sale of guns to ordinary people who have no need to have a killing machine in their homes or hands.
Is it more important to be respected or liked?
I would personally want to be liked. Liking someone implies a degree of trust and affection with the other person. Respect comes when people get to know each other better. But it starts with liking. I haven’t met anyone who I didn’t like but respected!
Is having a big ego a negative or positive trait? (yeah I know. Duh. But there ought to be one “gimme’ in the pile)
A big ego is a negative in my book. Ego is our sense of self and it should a robust and healthy entity. But overfed and over-inflated ego always stands in the way of being a good human. We think too much of ourselves and our consequences. We refuse to listen to the point of view of others and often think we know everything, so don’t learn new things!
Depending on your point of view, is death a new beginning?
For me death is a transition. From this temporary life to the eternal one. So it is important to be prepared for death with lots of good deeds in our kitty.
It’s tough right now to count the blessings we have. Being grateful for being confined to our homes and having reality skewed out of kilter for some is depressing. So if there is something positive or uplifting or something you’re grateful for that you’d like to share (pictures, memes, images, thoughts) please! Do share! Thanks! 🙂
