  Merry Go Round

Life is a merry go round. It drops some off and it picks some up. Some people live in a happy and joyous world, while others live in a dark and depressing world.

Yet the merry go round keeps going, round and round. It never stops, and it never breaks down. We all have a choice when we get off that ride. We have a choice to be happy or sad. W e have a choice to be clean and sober or to live in a world of artificial stimulation.

Oh yes, the choice is ours and once we make that choice we are not stuck. Life is about change and becoming something better. So before we get back on that ride let's choose to do what's right. Let's choose together.

(Emphasis): The world never changes. It is our attitudes that change the world!
