As I got in from helping put out campaign signs with a friend early this morning, I caught this from Brenda Wood of WXIA. It’s powerful stuff, and may help put some of today’s vote into perspective where it belongs in actual importance.
From a woman who just lost her husband and son, “One time I thought ‘why me?’. And my response was, ‘Why not me?’ Tragedies happen to people all of the time…What makes me exempt? Nothing.”
That’s a powerful outlook and some personal strength and faith that few of us can fathom. Some people will have a good day today. Many others will not. Let’s try to keep it in perspective.
