Unforgettable people
Those that I have known
Are unforgotten
They have made difference
Not just for good preseasons
Among them there have been negative
BUT - just has important has the good ones!
From the bad ones - well - you learn how not to be like!

Same with philosophy of every day life
You dont need to be in need of this or that religion
Or to be a practicing humanist has I am!
There are philosophers - philosophy's that fit me snuggle!
One of that fits me - is parable of the Samaritan
That really fits for the days we all live in right now!
Does not take much to rewrite it - takes no effort at all!

The words of Martin Niemoller - Then They Came For Me
Many now rewrite - update - his words - always relevant!
More so than ever!

There are philosophy with in Buddhism - Judaism - Christianity - Islam
Ancient Greek Philosophers - and so so many many more!
All of the above play there part in my every day and night of my life!
That I can adapt adopt - and do!

Of course during our life times we learn knowledge of other people
Back in the 70's I did a sociology course
From that I learned in the South African industrial culture
When the father had left the village to find work
Levin his children with out a father figure - the uncles stepped in!
I later learned that that custom go's back further than that and is the custom
Of those of African ancestry - ethnicity

When my sisters marriage broke up she had two very young sons
The Father showed no interest in his children!
Instantly I remembered what I had learned from that sociology course
I step in to use that knowledge!

All are unforgotten at least my yours truly!
