    This reminds me of a passage in the Bible.

    I hope no one is offended by my posting this here.

    Ecclesiastes 3:1-8


    1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
    2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
    3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
    4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
    5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
    6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
    7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
    8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.



    Better yet, a band called The Byrds published Turn, Turn, Turn. in 1965. It uses this scripture as a basis for the song.

    Here's the band The Byrds performing the song.

    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.
