    London Times Obituary of the late Mister Common Sense

    ‘Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

    Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and maybe it was my fault.
    Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).
    His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
    Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.
    It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an Elastoplast to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
    Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
    Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
    Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by four stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I Want It Now, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim.
    Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.’
    life is short and borrowed make the BEST of it to the fullest. Life
    is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat
    you right.. Forget about the one's who don't. Believe everything happens
    for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
    If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be
    easy, they just promised it would be worth
    it.

    You help all your brothers and sister in all thier needs, you support thier studies..you help your parents and gave them a place to live. Now that they are gone. You continue to support your adult brothers and all thier sibling, you know it is not your fault when they made a lot of children witout thinking or planning. But you dont blame them by doing so..you are always there in times of need..you are the shoulder for them if they cry. The place that you have given to your parents, brothers and sister now look miserable..one brother want to kill his young brother and chase away the children so he can own the place by himself..is it a common sense or greed.??when confronted,, this brother ask for share that he contributed in house repair that he live for longer year..common sense or greed? Binastos ang kaisa isang kapatid na tumutulong lagi sa kanilang pangangailangan..he ask his sister na bilhin daw ang sarili nyang bahay at hati hati ang share nila.. Ikaw bibilhin mo ang sarili mong bahay at ibigay sa kanila ang pinag bentahan..common sense???where are you?? Ahhh galit ako iniwan mo ako..
