The following is a collation of an essay read by Paul Harvey some years back. There was a version read over the air that differed and added to written copies I’ve read before, so I took it, combined the two in a manner that seemed best to me, and submitted it to this site around eight years ago. I’ve seen it written differently in different places, but I used as a base a tape-recorded reading by Mr. Harvey himself and a written copy printed in an old hymnbook.
I recently rediscovered it on my old computer, and I felt it was worth a repost here, but not only as a blog post but as a separate article on Shwiggie.com. So here it is! You’ll also find it on the sidebar listed under “Pages”.
It’s pretty scary how much of this has come true since its original writing.
