Good lessons from an unexpected source...Tiktok :)

  God does work in mysterious ways.  He speaks to us even in Tiktok. And this is what my fave friars will be talking about below.  Enjoy.  

The wokeness era is worrisome

When I was a little boy, I loved to sing along to this kiddie song about counting from one to ten.  It helped me a lot in learning quickly to count and that is all that mattered to me.  I am not sure if you are familiar with this song but the lyrics are like this: One, little two, little three, little Indian, Four, little five, little six, little Indian, Seven, little eight, little nine, little Indian, 10 little Indian boys I just recently realized that if you mix a little bit of wokeness into it and then the following questions could arise: Isn't this song racist to Indians? Isn't this song demeaning to call Indians little? Isn't this sexist because it excluded girls? If sang by an older person, isn't this encouraging pedophilia? This would be an example of why I think a lot of people are overthinking a lot of stuff nowadays and it sometimes becomes too ridiculous.   ---------------------
