I’m about to make a confession. I hope my blogging community will understand and stick together with me. I’ve grown so fond of your presence over the years.
Okay, ready? Deep breath.
I am a political junky. I follow everything to do with the topic and stay deeply involved. However, I don’t use this blog for discussing politics, because this is my break from that chaotic mess. I don’t follow any blogs that discuss the subject either. Except lately, I’ve found that it is creeping ever so slightly into some blogs. I know political discourse is everywhere present. It seems to be taking up the whole of the oxygen of the earth, and it’s hard to avoid discussing it altogether.
So, I’m going to say one more thing before I leave you with a blog post I wrote on September 14, 2012. When you read it, you will see that this mess did not begin recently with one particular man, because six years ago (and even before), I was writing about the same concerns I have now. The post isn’t directly about politics, but rather, a prayer for unity. If we humans continue to allow ourselves to be divided, we are headed for much more treacherous times.
