Is Money Evil?!?
I was listening to the radio this morning about two sisters, 83 and 87 year old, who for a long time always gambled together. In 1997 they had a letter notarized stating that whatever the other won, they would split the sharing’s. In 2005 one of the 83 year old sister won $500k. She won this with her brother and they decided not to share it with their older sister. The 87 year old sister had to find out about their winnings in the newspaper. She is now suing her sister for her part of the money. She says, it’s not about the money, but about morals and the fact that they had a pact to share each others winnings. The sisters had a falling out and the 83 year old women believes she shouldn’t have to share her winnings with her 87 year old sister. The 87 year old sister says she misses her sister but all she wants is what is rightfully hers.
Is money evil?!? Even at the age of 87 and 83, after so many years of knowing what family means, they still let money get in the way. People are still arguing over money. Money has we know it for centuries has destroyed families, friendships and more. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to have a lot of money one day, who wouldn’t, but why does it have to change who you are?!? If you were raised with certain morals, certain beliefs, you need to be strong enough to keep those beliefs and morals, to stay true to yourself. I think what happens, is that people get greedy, and greed unfortunately takes over the love you have for people. This will only leave you lonely and unhappy at the end of the day. I rather be happy and comfortable then rich and miserable.
Sometimes our hearts get tangled
And our souls a little off-kilter
Friends and family can set us right
And help guide us back to the light.
