Hugh Jackman in Oklahoma
I learned about the School of Practical Philosophy at the same time as I became obsessed with Hugh Jackman. As it turned out, HJ was a member of the School!! Anyway I have been a member of the School of PP at the same time as I have been a fan of HJ. Here is a story that is an example of the kind of thing HJ and I believe:
One day, as usually was the case, a young waif, a little girl, stood at the street corner begging for food, money or whatever she could get. Now this girl was wearing very tattered clothes; she was dirty and quite disheveled.
As it happens, a well-to-do young man passed that corner without giving the girl a second look. But when he returned to his expensive home, his happy and comfortable family, and his well-laden dinner table, his thoughts returned to the young waif and he became very angry at God for allowing such conditions to exist.
He reproached God, saying, “How can you let this happens? Why don’t you do something to help this girl?”
Then he heard God in the depths of his being respond by saying, “I did.
I created You!”
