Something to Reflect Upon as this Election Plays Out


To often we enjoy the comfort …

To me the election was more a narrative about the battle for supremacy of two political ideologies tangentially focused with the concerns of everyday Americans.  I think it was easy to get caught up in the divisive political rhetoric and forget that we each face many of the same challenges daily.

Both voting without action and democracy without education are effete. The fact that many people had to be jailed, killed, hosed down, mauled by dogs beat by cops to give us the opportunity to vote shows me that voting itself while effective, is lacking without careful planning and action  inclusive of everyone beyond ideology. It’s great to get out and vote but it’s a shame if that’s where the momentum stops. We need to think of things beyond opinions and that’s just my opinion.
