I am writing this on Tuesday November Third. The last I heard the election was going to be hard to predict. The polls initially showed that Joe Biden would likely win by a considerable margin. But who really knows? Much like life. We want things to be a certain way but either fortunately, or unfortunately, life is going to do what it does. Somehow we have to adjust and sometimes surrender. As I sit listening to the radio in my car it is almost as if I don't want to leave the car. Maybe magically I can control the outcome of the election if I listen longer, like when we watch a football game, and if we yell loud enough we can make our team win. How ridiculous! And yet as ridiculous as these things sound somehow we believe that we can control the uncontrollable. When my son was four years old he would say, I want, what I want, what I want, what I want, little kids our so honest, I would say, but you can't always have everything you want, and he would reply with, "but I want, what I want, what I want, what I want. The four year old in me is much like my beautiful child. And he truly was a beautiful well mannered adorable child. I was very fortunate! So as mature adults, how do we handle things when we don't get what we want? What do we "stand for", in the face of adversity and disappointment. Like many of us I have been very upset regarding the political unrest and division in our country. Wow!, "Political Unrest" it sounds like a term that should be for other countries, not our country. People are getting gun permits and are fearful of each other on a large scale. It just doesn't sound quite like the "United States". United we stand and divided we fall. No matter what happens with this election, we need to focus on respect, unity, humanity, and commonness. It is the "unity" that gives us strength. Steve Martin in the "LA Story", becomes anxious and paranoid that others might become aggressive on the highway when he realizes it is the spring equinox. He ultimately gets the gun from his glove compartment, and as a truck driver sees the gun he intern gets a shotgun, and the self-fulfilling prophecy begins, where they are firing at each other. Hilariously-Terrifying. Although my four year old son would politely state what he wanted, I never remembering him having a tantrum. I wonder if we can do as well?
