Why We Miss People

Why We Miss People


“I miss you, I miss you a lot.”

We often say these words to people around us. This proves that man is a social being.

Why do we miss our family, relatives, close friends, co-workers, constituents, communities…we almost miss everyone and everything! Again, the saying “No man is an island.”

We need to love, and we need to share triumphs and trials with each other. That is why we’re always missing.

Time today in fleeting seconds will fly, and there will be another time tomorrow. Where we are and with who we are weave beautiful memories of life. We have pictures, documents, and souvenirs because we cannot hold the joy we’re feeling with someone forever; we cannot forget how someone shared with us happy and difficult times. How together people ate, worked, and played are great points in life.

What do we do when we miss people? Here are 20 answers.

“I call them.”

“I send text messages to them.”

“I chat with them.”

“I buy them gifts or tokens.”

“I plan to go out w…

The Carpenter

Inspiration to Life: The Carpenter


When I go to church some mornings, I always saw Mario. I’m going out of the gate, he is coming in the compound. His looks was light despite of his work as a tough carpenter. He carried a blue backpack and wore a red cotton-t shirt. And then he would change from the red cottong shirt to a loose old green jacket. That was what he wore most of the times.

He worked whistling a happy tune. Every time I turned on our player, he switched places and brought all his tools under the mango tree in front of my small house. There he could listen to the beat of my speakers. He would nod his head and quickly went on cutting and hammering the furniture he was asked to finish.

I couldn't see his work piece by piece but as soon as he carried the finished product and brought it inside my neighbors house – it looked so elegantly crafted. Mario didn’t mind his pay. I heard from Bianca he wasn’t paid much only a little. He ate lunch with his bare hands und…

The Progress of Civilizations

The Progress of Civilizations


Culture has aided man toward the development and progress of a generation.

Man not only develops behavioral traits but also physical ones. As an example among others, the hunting way of life made man develop the erect posture, and this necessitated the development of large buttocks.

What man is socially, comes up to be brought by the time where he/she lives.

Check out the consequence of tool making and tool usage when the hand has become a magnificent precision instrument.

How man adapts himself at a given time and in over all time is culture. How time weaves life from the beginning to the present, and how the inhabitants progress through education or training result to fascinating developments.

Scientists have been able to reveal that the average person in any human society is able to learn just as much as the average person in any other society.

Today’s culture brings the advanced methods of sciences like inventing modern medicines compared to yes…

The Evolutionary Factors: Why People Are Different

The Evolutionary Factors: Why People Are Different

Authorities say that man comes from common ancestral stock. Diversifications result from repeated and unrepeated changes and processes in the development of the ethic group for essential unity without uniformity.

Creation from the Bible documents from the chapters of Genesis showing us how tribes and groups have developed into bigger territories and nations.

All men belong to the same genus “Homo” and the same species “sapiens.”

From the book, “Man His First Two Million Years,” by Ashley Montagu, “Natural selection, mutation, and isolations are factors, among others, that explain how man differ from each other.”

Charles Darwin says, “As many more individuals of each species are born than can possibly survive; and as, consequently, there is a frequently recurring struggle for existences, it follows that any being, if it vary however slightly in any manner profitable to itself, under the complex and sometimes varying conditions o…

Reading Death

Reading Death

I.

Coping up and accepting death is being objective with death. Life as it is born, dies. In between, many writers find for some reasons and ways how to make death acceptable for humans. Coping and expressing emotions and thoughts in terms of art and rituals serve death, forming pictures of life here and beyond.

Death shows how time links the past and present civilizations, how man rise and preserve species, and how history lived. The answers are vast as the universe began in Genesis and how it will end in the Revelation.

We are people with so many questions showing power and great faculties transcending life, but still science gets its limits in death. No mutation, or invention, or technology can create another human and give its dignity in death, except the Supreme Being called God.

Poets and writers share wisdom about this topic.

Emily Dickinson wrote “Because I Could Not Stop For Death.”

James Joyce wrote “The Dead.”

Federico Lorca Garcia wrote “Lament for …
