“Like sands in the hourglass, these are the “Days of our lives” was one of many soap opera’s my mom used to watch when I was a kid. “Search for tomorrow” was another, and as I mentioned above, in the title (with a tweek) “As the world turns”.
All three have a common theme…getting through each day, every day, day by day. That about sums it up for the whirlwind of events that have happened in the NFL-and much closer to home, our beloved Minnesota Vikings.
It seems the entire landscape of the NFL is crumpling before our eyes, like California washing away to the sea, as violent acts continue to crop up with the players.
The media, always driven to turn the screws of the frenzy until they are completely stripped off, is in some ways, just as irresponsible for their actions as the players are. It’s always better to gather the facts at hand first before spitting them out loud.
But, alas, we are just as guilty, as we have become a I want it now society-heck, there is even a commercial about that!
Each of these cases are different, and they will all play out a different way. We are all entitled to our opinions, but at the end of the day, we will always learn something new…as the world churns.
Neil Peart of the Canadian trio rock band Rush wrote this quote as part of the lyrics of a song (from Moving Pictures) called “Witch hunt.” I thought it appropriate given the circumstances:
“Quick to judge, quick to anger, slow to understand- ignorance and prejudice, and fear walk hand in hand.”
