Looking for Hope: a drop in the manifesto bucket.
Are you tired of political posts? Me too, but this election is something I think about daily. If you are still reading, there's room in your brain for one more battle cry. It won't be long, I promise. I am not one for long written political rants. I prefer my political soapboxes to be a live performance. In this difficult time, there are still people inspired by hope, inspired that flawed people can still help steer this country in a good and positive direction. I find that is beautiful. I don't care as much about who you are voting for as I do that you are really, really thinking about it. I hope that you ponder all the possible outcomes of your choice not only for you, but for your fellow citizens. I hope we ask ourselves difficult questions like : What will my voting for a third party candidate really do? What experience has this candidate had in leading and uniting people? Is this candidate motivated by hope or by fear? I hope that my choice (and yours) on voting day engenders more love, more kindness and more unity in our beautiful-flawed, beautiful-because-it's-flawed, country.
