Wow! The last SYW for April 2020. Man! It’s unsettling how fast slow time can go.. I will post four or five different questions each week for you to answer. There are two ways which you can participate. Create a SYW post. Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave […]
Do guns protect people or kill people? Or both?
Both. They protect people from those who want to kill them using said guns. Nothing is good or bad in itself; it is how you use it that makes it so.
Is it more important to be respected or liked?
I think this is largely a matter of personal choice. If there must be a choice, I would much rather be liked. Having said that, could you like a person without respecting them? The contrary, however, can be true; a person who is not particularly likeable may be highly respected in his chosen field.
Is having a big ego a negative or positive trait? (yeah I know. Duh. But there ought to be one “gimme’ in the pile)
Oh , negative, most definitely!
Depending on your point of view, is death a new beginning?
This is a question of religious belief more than personal opinion as far as the “dying person” is converted.
As for the family or close friends of the departed, it is definitely a new beginning, whether happy or sad.
