A Christmas Eve Message

Life and Death

At one time or another, you've no doubt been told things like "life is short" and "be all that you can be" and you've read and heard the words of others who wish they could have been more and done more... others see potential for younger ones who have plenty of time to choose a "right path" and try to guide them in that direction.

You live your own one life and find your own way. You have to be true to YOU and find your own peace within your heart and soul. When I see people ignoring opportunities or busying themselves with worship of movie stars or rock stars, I feel sad for them. For some, that's the only way they can live their lives without feeling terribly small and insignificant.

Every life is precious. Enjoy YOURS, have fun, be kind to others and yes, like the US ARMY once insisted, "be all that you can be."

"...I reminded him that I am his child and since the day I was born, God has given me to him and Mom to take care of. So I begged him to at least be with me until someday I get married. He cried and promised me that he’d be there on my wedding..." ~…/the-last-few-hours-before-she-left/

For life and death are one, even as the river and the sea are one.

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
