I am a simple person. I grew up in a house that didn’t really talk politics, but I knew that my parents valued hard work, honesty and responsibility. God is the center of my life and I use that as a source of strength. I am not wealthy, but my family is happy and taken care of. I believe that America is a very special place. We are all given the same freedom to make choices and work hard to create our own happiness. I have been spending time online reading the news and blogs about current events. I am concerned about our nation. I am asking you all what you believe in because I find such a scattering of angry, loud, and mean language and very little content. It seems that many of you are wrapped up in the news and media. Obama is not the center of your lives. Race and money and unions and Iraq are not the center of the universe. Please consider turning off the news for a day or two. I dare you to turn it off for a week. I double dog dare you to not talk to anybody about current events! Do something that you enjoy. Distract yourself from all this crap for a few days. Hug somebody you love or that special tree you’ve had your eye on. Come back to it later with a fresh mind and lower blood pressure. Spring is almost here…because the earth is still turning and has not been knocked off it’s axis…go enjoy it.
