Living in interesting times…

This election process has been unprecedented.  The most negative part of it has been the surging divisiveness which reached almost epidemic proportions during this race for the presidency.

It’s over for some who feel the unthinkable has happened.  It’s just beginning for others, represented by the sweeping of red across the political map of our country.  Fear of the unknown can be paralyzing but we must all agree on the importance of much-needed change in our government on so many levels. 

As would be expected, social media is awash with comments from both sides and the projections of “no second term”, “no pity party” would have been directed at whichever candidate won this election.  The deluge of debate will continue long past this and many days ahead. 

It won’t be easy, just has it hasn’t been for the current leader of the free world.  We live in treacherous times.  While this election may be about the performance and policies of our government, truly, it is about each of us, our lives, our families and the future of all who follow behind. 

From the beginning, this campaign was about voting for the lesser of two evils, plain and simple.  The people of our great country have made that choice and there are no further options other than for everyone to move forward beyond the anger and disillusionment…and pray.



Our government… teaches the whole people by its example. If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. ~Louis Brandeis




  1. John Holton says:

    Two years of rabble-rousing by the news media certainly didn’t help. I think we need a break from them.

    • Patty says:

      We need more than a break, John. While the media has the right to report, there should be strict regulations on just reporting the facts with too many personal spins added to the news releases. We are a sadly divided country and the outsiders are watching us, laughing as we battle with each other, sensing our weakness as a nation.

  2. I’m so glad it’s over. Well, the election. The other part is just beginning. But at least, it’s over. I agree, this has been the most unprecedented election ever. Prayer is exactly what we need. And lots of it.

    • Patty says:

      Thanks, as always, for stopping by, Yvonne.
      You are so right about what is just beginning. I’ve sat and watched, in utter amazement, as the media shared the idiotic behaviors of so many over the election results. The absolute emotional breakdowns of so many people…over this complete circus of a campaign and the two clowns involved? I don’t recall quite the same public outcry when the towers fell on 9/11/01; people prayed and moved on, knowing our world would never be the same. Now, it’s all out insanity between people.

      Somehow, we will survive.
