June 6, 2006...Yawn

Today is June 6, 2006 and everywhere I turn people are talking about it. So what? Guess what, the world didn't end today. I know that because it is already June 7, 2006 in many parts of the world.
Even the media is covering the date. Why? There must be real news to report.
I have heard reports of people scheduling trips around today. People have even gone so far as to schedule c-sections to avoid giving birth today.

It seems to me that many people are more concerned with a date and a number than real evil. We live in a world where people are starving both at home and in places most people have never heard of, abortion is legal, immorality abounds and people are worried about a DATE? Puh-leeese!

We are not supposed to trust in false gods, but people do it all the time. The date June 6, 2006 is no different from any other. People will die, people will be born, heroes will be made, and life will go on. It is a date just like any other.

If today should be remembered for anything it should be remembered as the day the allies stormed the beach in Normandy. It was the beginning of one victory against evil.

Let's stop worrying about things we cannot control and give up superstitions like numbers. We have to place our trust in God. There are real evils in the world which should concern us more 6's are in the date.

We do not know when the world will end, but we do know that the world ended today for some people just as it does every day. Death comes like a thief in the night. We must be ready. Each of us has a much greater chance to dying in a car accident, of a heart attack, even being crushed by a ladder today than the world ending today. Are you ready?
