Bitter



John Locke commented that parents wonder why the streams are bitter, when they themselves have poisoned the fountain. We may look at the coming generations with skepticism, even scorn but who are their parents? Man rails against the evil in the world, but who is the perpetrator of such evil? Man himself. We look to place the blame on something for our suspicion, our ills, our general unhappiness with our lives, but when we point the finger of blame, we should be standing in front of a mirror.
