Interested in what is a wise thing to do this coming Labor Day Weekend, especially in Chicago?
The Chicago Tribune article titled: Heading into Labor Day, City mayhem is out of control, reports the writer’s concern about the potential for a violent weekend this Labor Day weekend.
Another article titled: About Silence on Rioting contained this statement.
“It’s true that peaceful protesters make up the majority in the early hours of daily demonstrators. But clashes between police and protestors don’ begin in earnest until night….”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient proverb with a contemporary song verses advice to consider what not to do this weekend?
A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. (Proverb 22:3)
What’s My Point?
The Chicago Tribune also has an article which lists the various times and days of the week when most of the violence occurs.
In My Opinion
The original intent of the Labor Day weekend is to celebrate workers, not to join in and become a dead or wounded worker.
I recommend people living in areas prone to violence read the proverb meaning written 3000 years ago which in essence advises being prudent or suffer the consequences.
I also recommend we listen and read the song verses with similar prudent wisdom advice.

Is there going to be another “Bad Moon Rising” in the nights this Labor Day weekend?
Are we going to be prudent or perhaps be sorry we did not heed wise advice?
