86,400 SECONDS

There are 86,400 seconds in a day, starting when most are still asleep. If you get up at 6 o’clock one fourth of that time is already gone.

It will take another two hours to get up, get ready and be at work at eight o’clock. You just spent seventy two hundred seconds A few more - - and you are just getting out of the house.

If in fact we have "X" amount of seconds to live (save accidents) then perhaps we should plan more carefully how we allot our time in order to get the most out of life. We are almost forced to include both length and quality of life in the equation.

Neither Capitalism nor Socialism deal fairly with the value of life, any discrepancy in earning capacity exposes this unfair value system.

Why should a worker who works 10 hours a day in 100+ degree heat be worth less than a corporate head in an air conditioned office?

Some believe that the unions are fair for workers. The fact is that some union workers make minimum wage and others make 50 to 70 dollars per hour.

The measure of value consists of production only when it should include both production and mortality (average life span).

What I do when I am hired is, I not only sell my ability to perform but also I give them a segment of my life which is a limited asset.

The ability of some to sell their life segments for millions while others only get pennies for theirs is an unfair system, which we have been forced from childhood to accept as the norm.

The political leaders have the power tell us what our lives are worth. The life span of the slaves of the south and other countries had almost no personal value beyond daily sustenance, while the life of Massa in the big house had great value.

Since there is little we can to change the system, the best thing we can do is to plan carefully and make the most of the time we have.

I looked at the death clock and this is what it said about me.

"Based on our calculations you will die on: Friday, 16th July 2004
You will live to be 74 years, 7 months and 6 days old!"

Now I feel guilty for I should have been dead a long time ago.
