I find driving an axe into wood and hearing it split open strangely satisfying…. of course, it’s not like that happens often…
But the wedges that are being waged lately are driving me crazy. Gay vs straight, men vs women, rich vs poor… and the candidates & news programs just keep hitting the wedge, & they want to hear us splitting apart…
People are adding to that wedge with social media… these awful posts with nasty language seem to be constants. People are buying into the wedges, & I don’t see good outcomes.
Personally, I don’t find the wedge. I see good things in both cadidates & I am all too aware that we are a nation of both checks & balances, and neither one will change our nation all that much, thanks to all the wedges being waged in Washington. I am sympathetic to most sides of an issue. I see the woman who felt she had no choice besides abortion. I see people who live on government subsidies & can’t seem to find a way off. I see gay mariage advocates, I get what they want, & they are all good people with whom I most likely have more in common with then differences….
But. I think this is a time to look at yourself. Are you driving a wedge in? Are you hoping the wood will crack? Who does that help?
Soon we will be a dead tree begging to be made into furniture instead of going into the fire.
Need to order personal checks?
