Regina Spektor - Laughing with
One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.
“One is Evil - It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
“The other is Good - It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
It’s sad to see such hate towards religion in general. While not a religious person myself, I find the anger and blind hate towards religion to be downright ignorant. I am all for seeking truth and not blindly believing in any certain thing but it seems to be a growing trend to blindly accept science, ex. Evolution without all the proper facts, while dogmatically attacking and outright rejecting religion as anti science, and all around evil. While many people have done evil things in the name of religion, religion has done a lot of great things in the world, and I would love to one day see the two peacefully co exist rather than there need to be a choice between one or the other. Science’s goal should not be to disprove God, but to simply seek truth, and have no bias on other subjects such as religion.
“Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind”

The Place I’ll Return To Someday…
No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one’s laughing at God when they’ve lost all they got and they don’t know what for.
No one laughs at God on the day they realize that the last sight they’ll ever see is a pair of hateful eyes
No one’s laughing at God when they’re saying their goodbyes
I live for forgetting about the life outside the venue.
I live for letting go and acting a fool.
I live for singing your heart out.
I live for band’s stupid comments.
I live for dancing like a maniac.
I live for soaking your shirt from sweat.
I live for smiling so much your face hurts.
I live for waving your hands in the air.
I live for not giving a damn about what other people think of you.
I live for the few hours at a concert,
where nothing else matters
It’s not so bad. Love? Psh overrated.
My heart goes out to the family of the 3 lives lost in the shooting today at the University of Alabama. May God rest their souls.
Let’s see where we can take it, Let’s see where we can go.
****We need you****
****We need ideas****
****We need a singer****
****We need perseverance****
