Mr. Common Sense will never Rest in peace, it is up to us to help! (Reposted)


I recieved this piece by mail and felt the need to post it, I only added a part about the divine religions.

Please read:

Remarkable Obituary
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Mr.Common Sense.Mr. Sense had been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such value lessons as knowing when to come in out of the rain, why the early bird gets the worm and that life isn't always fair. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you earn) and reliable parenting strategies (adults, not kids, are in charge).

His health began to rapidly deteriorate when well intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a six-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Mr. Sense declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer aspirin to a student; but, could not inform the parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Finally, Common Sense lost the will to live as divine religions became contraband; churches became businesses, Judaism mistaken for Zionism and Islam labelled as a Terrorist.

Common Sense finally gave up the ghost after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot, she spilled a bit in her lap, and was awarded a huge financial settlement, i.e. Criminals receive better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust, his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, tell others about this otherwise, join the majority and do nothing!

Mohammed and Chari,

I must disagree with you. The best living proof that Mr. Common Sense did die leaving us with some memories is the very existence of people like our presidents and someone like Mr. Bush junior, what is happening in Palestine, and what happens on a daily basis every where. I know strange things have been happening since Prophet Adam (3alihi Alsalam) was sent down to earth, but the weight of the sale where common sense is concerned is very different.. Non sense weighs much more now a days.

Jane,
I believe u understood my point.

Lasto adri Blue,
Thank you sweetie! Ya rab you do great in your exams, i guess you are better off not reading here, but reading and memorizing and understanding your books would do u much better now, but thank you for dropping in and leaving this lovely note. Happy new year to you and to every one every where too!

Now, back to the topic, guys i am not a pesimist at all! On the contrary the reminants and memories of the essence of Mr. Common sense and his deceased family are the ones each on of us is trying to clinge onto and apply to their lives. But would you not agree that it truely is difficult?

to be continued after your responses.... :-)

"but the weight of the sale where common sense is concerned is very different.. Non sense weighs much more now a days."
