My Official End of the World Message

The end of the world is supposed to be today at 6:00pm.  Here in Australia that’s in less than four hours.  Since the rapture is supposed to happen on local time, that means I’ll get to know before most of the world what will happen.

Honestly, I don’t have any opinion on whether or not this is all true, the same way I won’t say there’s no chance of aliens.  Anything is possible.  What I do know for sure is that I’m not going to worry about it either way.

I believe that goodness shouldn’t be saved for special occasions like Christmas and the end of the world.  Everyday should be savored like it was the last, because for millions of people everyday, it is. 

If tomorrow passes by with nothing more remarkable than a new dawn, I hope that everyone will not just go back to business as usual.  Today people are making amends with family and friends and thinking twice about stealing that parking space ‘just in case’, but in reality we never know when our end is coming. 

Live well and with no regrets and don’t worry about tomorrow.  Tomorrow will take care of itself.
