Today I am thankful for the Election Day! Of course I'm going to talk about freedom, voting, rights, duty, patriotism, love of country, homeland, mom's apple pie, whatever, and I certainly will: but not today. Today I am truly thankful that all of the campaign ads and hostility between opposing sides is over for at least a little while.
Does that sound trite? I don't mean for it to. The political process in this country has turned into a long, drawn out, stressful and ugly thing. We as a nation need to stop and catch a breath. This war between the blue and the red is tearing us up. We need healing as a nation, and an awakening to the truth, not more mind numbing media propaganda and mud slinging which only instigates more division and more hostility between us.
I'm not deluding myself. I know that soon the campaigns will start again. They start earlier and earlier every election cycle. I know that all the social media outlets will continue to have arguments and the winners will gloat and the losers will whine. I know the news outlets will spin, spin, spin! I know! I know! I know! But, for at least a little while, as far as big media campaign commercials, national or local, paid ads, private ads and the roadsides being littered with signs and posters, we will be granted a reprieve from the inundation we've endured -- at least for a little while. May it be more peaceful than thought possible and last longer than expected!
