    Henry David Thoreau: During his two-year period living at Walden Pond, Thoreau spent a single night in his local jail when he refused to pay his poll tax, a decision he made to protest the US’s war with Mexico. According to legend, Ralph Waldo Emerson visited him that night and asked him, “Why are you here?” Thoreau replied, “Why are you not here?” The night would serve as inspiration for an essay called “Resistance to Civil Government” — though the name was ultimately changed to “Civil Disobedience.”

This kind of reminds me of the C.O's talk Thursday. The aviation, navigation, and communication. Most specifically the navigation. If we lose those goals or "weigh points" we fall into satan's haze and eventually cease to exist... Don't go by feeling, but the instruments that Jehovah provides! Like the pilot would use.
