Politics, Religion, and Pizza (Part 2)


Yesterday, I left off with the beginnings of an interesting discussion of Politics I was a part of (see yesterday's post)

My bottom line was this: regardless of your political viewpoints, the only way I know how to look after the health and well-being of my family is to do everything I can to help secure their present and their future. It is my own actions or inaction that most directly impact their well-being.
.
As we all hear on the "human interest" bits in the media, many people are struggling with the state of our economy and the impact on their lives. I believe that many people got a shrewd and blatant "wake up" call when the economy went in the tank. I believe that many people are realizing that if they want help, they need to get off their butts and do something. Help is more readily available when you try to make things happen for yourself...when you take responsibility and are accountable for your self and your actions.

I pray that those who struggle find hope in the fact that as flawed as it is, this still is the greatest country in the world. We have our differences and our separate beliefs, and the timeless principles still apply:

-Self Reliance
-Personal Honor
-Hard Work
-Perseverance
-Faith
-Accountability
-Mercy
-Forgiveness
-and so many more right and true beliefs...think about it....What principles do you hold dear?

The moment you realize you are in control of your life and accountable for your actions, you realize that you can be the leader for yourself and your family. May God bless you and keep you safe on your journey.
