Sunday, May 21 open thread: ‘Show Me How to Live’

May 21, 2017

  open-threadHere is the open thread for Sunday, May 21st Please feel free to post links to interesting articles and to discuss whatever issues arise during the course of the day. Nothing is off-topic here.

  Last week  we discussed 8 stories, did you miss any of them? If so there is an easy way to make sure it does not happen again. I understand that all of you are busy and cannot always find the time to check the blog for updates so why not subscribe to America’s Watchtower and receive email updates whenever I write a new post? That is the easiest way to follow the blog to ensure you never miss another post.

  In addition to subscribing you can also follow America’s Watchtower on Facebook and Twitter by clicking the links on the right. But you will get more than that for I often post links to articles I probably will not be writing about so it is a great way to keep up with what is happening.

 The Twitter widget in the sidebar is fully interactive. This widget updates my tweets in real time and allows you to respond to or retweet my tweets right from the blog. It also allows you to tweet me right from America’s Watchtower. How cool is that! If you do not have a Twitter account what better reason do you need to sign up for one!

  A couple of days ago the rock world lost a pioneering voice in the grunge movement from the early 1990’s when Chris Cornell decided to end his life after a show in Detroit. He was just 52 years old. Chris Cornell’s four octave voice could alternate between melodic and powerful and he will be missed in the rock world. The last song he ever sung was a cover of Zeppelin’s “In My Time of Dying” and I cannot help but think this was not an accident.

  It is always sad when somebody comes to the conclusion that there is nothing in this life worth living for but it might be even more tragic when it is somebody who seems to have everything in this life that a person could ask for and still decides it is not enough. He, like so many others, was missing something in his life.

  I have chosen to share AudioSlave performing “Show Me How to Live” as my tribute to Chris Cornell because I think you will see in these lyrics that he knew what he was missing, I  only wish he could have found it:

Nail in my hand
From my creator
You gave me life
Now show me how to live

 And here is a bonus video which shows his other side, Ave Maria:

    “The inter-Tropical Convergence Zone is shifting due to the onset and strengthening of the Mini Ice Age, but the media won’t tell you that because they don’t want you to alter your lifestyle of take your cash out of savings and investments. Its here and intensifying, you have until 2019 to prepare. ”

        I know what you mean about some of the 90s music. I did like this one. The visual I could do without in the vid though! Holly-wood wanes casting ‘high imaginations’ that lead away from God!
