It’s time for a break from all the nasty stuff that passes for politics this election
Let’s take time to look at the big picture.
Last weekend the Hispanic church that is our neighborhood partner did their annual Fiesta de Ninos. A celebration of their children. From what I understand it is a big deal in Mexico and It is something we don’t do. We have mother’s day and father’s day but no day set aside just for our children.
They all had a great time and at the end the church passed out the book bags filled with school supplies that you all helped to buy.
Today as I looked at all the pictures I was reminded of what this election is really about. It is not really about me or other people my age. It is ultimately about the future of these children.
Their parents know this and work hard at low paying jobs. They sacrifice. Do without so they can get their children in to better schools. As an example, Veronica, a friend and neighbor, lives in a house that has no flooring, just the bare subfloors but her children are in good private schools and are going on to college. Carpeting can wait.
So let’s take a few moments to celebrate life.
Cause I gotta admit, in spite of all the nastiness we hear on TV, from where I was standing this weekend the future is looking good.
