Gaining the World - Losing his Soul

Long ago I left school and headed to college with the goal of becoming a preacher like my Dad. After three years of mixing and learning from other preachers, teachers and classmates I decided that my passion would be found somewhere else . . . The preacher they were molding me into was not the kind of preacher . . . not the kind of man . . . that my father was, and I eventually left college and moved on. My father had two brothers who worked in a local steel mill all their lives, and they got me a job in that mill as a bricklayer's helper . . . . crawling into still steaming hot furnaces to rip out the worn out brick that kept the molten steel from spilling out, and passing new brick to the bricklayers to re-line the furnace frames. As the steel mills were closing and turning the area into what was called the 'rust belt,' I left the steel mill to start a journey that would expose me to many different jobs and careers in search of the work that would wake me early and keep me excited all day long.

In this British steel mill town we meet Bert and Walter, went to school together and both work in the steel mill. Bert wants to be a preacher and Walter wants to be King of the World . . . . At least king of his world. Walter soon gets the chance to move up in the world when he gets a big promotion at the steel mill and now he is the boss of the men he used to work beside. Now Walter is the leader of a crew of roughneck men . . . . Walter was a tough steel worker before he got his big promotion, and now he is a tougher boss, ruling his men with a heart of steel . . . . He must show no kindness to the men he rules over . . . . He must display no weakness . . . He will get the steel out on time no matter how much abuse he needs to pile on the workers . . . . That's how big bosses are supposed to act, right? . . . It takes steel in the heart and ice in the veins to get to the top and rule the world . . . . Even murder can be justified if the circumstances are right . . . . With his steel-tough heart he will indeed gain the world . . . . But of course he doesn't seem to understand that we are all farmers . . . . We always harvest what we plant . . . . One of my old bosses once told me that it is the wise man who is kind to the people he passes on his way up the ladder of life, because he may very well meet them again on his way down . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
