Is it my imagination or is what I read in today’s Chicago Tribune news reports a repetition of what I read before?

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate an ancient observation made 3000 years ago to today’s news reports.

King Solomon  

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 1:9)


The thing that has been seen and heard is no other than what shall be seen and heard again;

and that which is done, is that which shall be done; what is done in the present age, nay, in this year, month, or day, shall be done over again in the next;

ll likewise hold good in moral things; the same vices and virtues are now as ever, and ever were as they are; men in every age were born in sin, 

What’s My Point?

If you read today’s news, it seemed to me in varying degrees the same folly I  read before.

In other words, fools will keep repeating the same folly in every new generation, that is, unless the wise up to grasp the same  plot in the movie Groundhog Day.

In My Opinion

To end the repetition we have two choices.

We  can wake up after wising up same as in the movie plot Groundhog Day..

Or we can teach our children to understand how to read the Bible basic goals. That is to  guide or wake up our children to what life should include in our lives, wisdom and love.  

If Interested

Read the Source Link below which contains this ending statement.

Life is a gift, the movie says. You can choose to use it selfishly for personal gain, or you can use it to help others. The choice is up to you.

You Decide

Will we ever wake up from having to read the news reports about the same repetitive folly day after day after day?

Would teaching children when they are young and impressionable Bible teachings of wisdom and love help reduce having to read the same repetitive news reports of folly that King Solomon observed 3000 years ago?

Would not having to read the news of repeat folly every morning make it more pleasant to wake up and go about your day under the sun in a similar manner as this posts images?

Regard and goodwill blogging.
