Gratitude

I’m so incredibly grateful to have been born into a generation of great opportunity and prosperity, at a time when there have been no active hot wars over my head or unending civil strife that threatens my ability to live my life to the fullest. We are free to choose to point out “wrongs” where we see them, and praise “rights” when they are evident. We were raised to be respectful in our dealings with others and educated to be thoughtful and articulate in expressing our ideas.

Yes, there are so many great institutions and things in our lives that are worth preserving! And true, there are many other things that need to be collectively re-thought out, in order to right historical wrongs and to begin to heal real wounds. And, there are many things that lurk in the shadow of half-truths, which cause otherwise faith-filled, and family-loving folks to turn on their friends and neighbours with virtual daggers. Ad-hominem attacks. Guilt by association or defence, or hot-headedness.

Life is short.

Whatever it is that’s bothering you will pass.

Politics is not unlike Newfoundland weather. If you don’t like what’s going on, wait. It’s guaranteed to change.
