at first you might think it was. But think again...

If it never happened would you of ever been born?

Very likely 99% of you wouldn't of came into existence.

Please think about that for a few seconds

..........

It's like saying "was the meteorite that hit OUR planet 65 mill years ago a disaster"?

Again if that tragedy never happened then very likely the human race wouldn't of came into existence.

Now... If you have a god belief, and believe, god had a plan, then that dismisses my point... But! If it's all god's plan then you must respect his plan, as it's not your place to question it.

So no matter how you view it... It can't be seen as a negative issue at OUR point in time.

So therefore you must stop looking back with disdainful feelings, and look forward with optimism & grandeur. And in time you'll be happier in spirit.

I gave thought about the same subject about a week ago. I thought to myself, if I had a Time Machine and asked Africans and Europeans what would they change?
I myself would do something/nothing and here's why:
Something: Let's say all of the bad times I went thru, I would avoid and make my life and situations of other's better. What's better in the past would have an exponential effect on my future.(Same goes for bad.)
Nothing: A Time machine would give me a chance to stop Slavery. Well If I had done that, then I would probably erase my birth. This could cause my great-great Grand parents to never have met: Chain Reaction.(Back To The Future ring a bell?)Or the whole world would be better better or worse worse off.
Would I stop Adolph Hitler, Idi Amin, Napoleon from being born? What about the lesser known people's parents from 'hooking' up? Idi, Adolph and Napoleon had to start from somewhere!
One person's existence can make a difference because there's plenty of unknown people who go to their graves who made a positive impact on our lives are never in the books.(If you add one grain of Salt on a pile of 1 Ounce of salt, it would be 1 grain heavier.) Small and make a Big difference.

Good post!

Life is a crazy thing. And if you believe in god... then you must think he works in mysterious ways. Either way it's all kinda crazy.

But I know for a fact that many AA's would be better off if they stopped harbouring resentment as a result of slavery. That happened 100s of years ago, & should be put to bed now. It's no more than just a very small part of human history.

Thanks. Being an AA makes me think about this type of stuff all the time.
It's good to think. In fact many of my posts are rather thought provoking.
