Amazing USA: Give me liberty or give me death, and, I’m going to live until I die, Wisdom or Folly Philosophy of life and death?
The Chicago Tribune articles present a decoupage of news about the freedom of Americans based on personal wealth or poverty, or self-sacrificing martyrs or heroes. or wise or foolish, personal choices we have living in the USA during a deadly virus world pandemic.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate ancient wisdom verses of King Solomon to interested readers to discern and choose whether the cast of characters presented are self- sacrificing, mad, foolish, lucky, heroes, martyrs, for the choices they are fortunate to have been presented with by being born in the USA.
King Solomon – Chapter Nine
11 again I saw that under the sun she races is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all. 12 For man does not know his time. Like fish that are taken in an evil net, and like birds that are caught in a snare, so the children of man are snared at an evil time, when it suddenly falls upon them.
What’s My Point?
The news featured a story and picture of Wisconsin residents in a crowded bar none with face masks enjoying themselves now that the bar is open because a judge ruled the Governor did not have the authority to quarantine.
Matt Damon quarantined in Ireland stated being quarantined with his family in a wooded secluded area is like living a fairy tale.

My point is King Solomon above verses observed that luck plays a part in life and people are snared into the nets of their own choices during evil times.
In My Opinion
Each American born in the USA is born lucky in life to have the freedom to make their own choices.
Patrick Henry chose to self-sacrifice in death for freedom.
Others will choose to take risks to live according to the song verse of” I’m going to live until I die.”
Others may choose to live and make prudent choices in life. For example, to at least wear a mask in bar or public place during the time of a highly transmittable deadly virus pandemic.
Buy a Chicago Tribune or subscribe to their internet link for. less than a dollar a month, they need the money because of loss of advertising revenues in to be able to report more news about the wise or foolish choices we Americans make.
Will you he wearing a mask when you venture out of quarantine?
Does reading or listening to the news make you wonder what we parents teach or are being taught about the philosophy of life, and death?
Regards and goodwill blogging.
