Day 17. Is human life priceless?  Sometime it seems that socioeconomic status like race determines how valuable a life is worth.  How can someone in good conscious not value life and want health care for people who can't afford it?  It doesn't make sense to me.  All life is precious!  People who commit crimes get better dentist care then a working single mother with children?  Why shouldn't it all be equal?

What's on my mind.  How different people would be to each other if everyone was the same race and everyone made the same amount of money.  I guess vain people would find something else to separate themselves from the "unworthy."  The funny thing is that we are all the same human race. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said it best when he suggested that people be judged by the content of their character and not by the color of their skin and may I add how much money they have.  I have learned in my life that when you judge someone, or belittle someone, based off of their life circumstances, the way life changes you could be in the same spot.  Think of all the brilliant people who have shaped our world for the better.  They all come from different backgrounds, different cultures, different socioeconomic status.  They were all someone's child, someone's brother, someone's sister, someone's father or mother.  Everyone is priceless.  Today I challenge you to stand up for the weak, lend a hand to the less fortunate.  Give a gift to someone in need and that gift could be a smiling face instead of a judgmental one or that of an understanding heart.  Today I will leave you with a verse and a video

1 Samuel 16:7
7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”

To be first you must be last.....
