Election, ME News, Vol. 1, Issue 36
Evenin’. Hope everyone made it to the polls today. I’m about to tune in and see where we’re at as far as our new leadership. What a history making election year. So many issues, and so many opinions. I heard a radio announcer say the other day that we’re officially in a “recession.‿ I wonder what makes it official? The percentage of folks without jobs, the number of home foreclosures, the price of gas dropping over $2.00 per gallon in less than a month?
Jeff just wouldn’t get too excited about politics. He was, however, a careful voter, doing his best to be informed about each national, state, and local candidate. Even so, I learned very early in our dating how he felt about the whole thing. “You know,‿ he said to me once. “It doesn’t really matter too much who wins the election tonight. The cows still gotta be milked in the morning.‿ You can pretty much apply that philosophy to anything: a football game, a dip in the stock market, or an argument. No matter what, for most of us, our day-to-day responsibilities will remain the same Wednesday morning. Still, it’s a remarkable privilege to be able to vote, and influence the state of our nation.
May our leadership be blessed with wisdom and true care for the people of this nation and the world, and may God bless us all.
