Winter Update 2017
Winter of Discontent
Winter of 2017 has found me pondering an interesting contrast. On one side Mother Nature has produced a records breaking colder, wetter Winter with plenty of rainstorms and the most snow I have seen in many years. On the other side, our country is immersed in uncertainty, unrest and mouth gaping concern at the drama unfolding across multi-media screens all over the country (not to mention the world) by the players that make up our real life government.
I prefer to not discuss politics with people. Religion and politics can quickly become a touchy conversation at best. I know just enough to hold the beginning of a conversation on either…then quickly begin to sink in the mire of either my ignorance beyond a certain point or my passion rising when we touch on something that I truly believe to be (my) true. I don’t want to sway others to believe what I do; however, I just want to be understood as to why I believe the way I do. I have learned and try to practice recognizing when it’s time to walk away from some such conversations because in the end it does not matter if someone understands me as much as the importance that I understand myself.
It takes me a long time of sitting on the rail and watching/listening to what others have to say before I finally feel comfortable in choosing a side when it feels like it meshes with my gut. This makes me prone to indecision, second guessing myself too easily and a little to easily influenced by outside input.
As a teen, I learned my grandparents kept their finger on the pulse of politics both nationally and locally. I learned of their preferences and listened to them speak about particular ones and why they did or not choose to back them. They, like most their age, had worked hard all their lives and came up through so many changes. Sometimes they were an active part of the changes and many times they sat back with mouth gaping concern. They knew what they did and did not like.
At the same time they were progressive enough to accept what they did not understand, whether they liked it or not, and move forward. I think they had an ingrained feeling of responsibility to be aware of what was happening and why as responsible Americans. When it came time to vote they knew who the candidates were and some background on them because they took the time to study it. They taught me that. When I turned 18 and cast my first vote…I felt like I was a true adult! I did my groundwork on which I was going to vote for via newspapers and magazines. I felt a sense of pride…American pride.
The last 10 years have found me afflicted with a feeling of confusion and dread in trying to sort thru the crap of what the politicians are telling us and what they really mean. There is too much dirty tactics that take away from the real issues and an inability to present straight forward answers to issues that need to be dealt with. Each side has their own agenda and the American people are the pawns and trade-offs.
I do believe the corrupt structure of government needs a huge overhauling and answerability to the needs of the people gravely requires change to where one day they will become one. I hope it happens in my lifetime.
I read the news after the election where I saw others felt as I had and found some comfort that I was not alone. I was totally stunned and I felt the ground I walked on was not firm and safe. It took me quite some time to reach a point of acceptance and a small sense of neutrality.
I’ve heard others around me, who may or may not have the same beliefs of choices as I do, speak their concerns for what is happening and where it will lead. I am inspired with hopefulness by those who speak out publicly to remain strong and look forward to a Spring full of fresh green growth. We are all Americans no matter where we put our pants on and at the very least all this upheaval can bring us closer together and make our voices heard.
I wish you peace and happiness on your path!
