One of my favorite facebook friends shared this with me and I wanted to share it with you my readers. This was a message given to him from someone else because he was struggling with some things.
I don’t know who you’re voting for and ultimately it doesn’t matter. But if your conscience is clear and youre genuinely voting for the candidate who you feel would give you the kind of world you want, and make this world a better place, read this.
DOC: “Listen. I have that anger too with those people but what you’re doing is spending half your day being angry at those people and the rest of the day being angry at yourself for being angry all the time! You are angry for the right reasons and you need to keep fighting the good fight! But channel the other part into pride! It doesn’t matter if Trump wins this election because you did the right thing. All great people fought for what’s right and they didn’t succeed without failure. If he wins, you just keep fighting! But take pride in YOU because you didn’t cause this. You tried to prevent it. The things you’re angry about don’t even effect you as a white male in America, yet the animocity that drives you is standing up for those who can’t stand up for themselves. I wanted to share this with you with the election coming up tomorrow. You be proud of yourself and no matter who wins tomorrow, there is more to be done.”
Now replace it with Clinton and change the fact that you may not be a white male.
All you can do is your part. All you can do is what you feel is the right thing to do.
This has been stressful.
I used to look at older people who acted like they didn’t have a care in the world about voting. And I thought, HOW IRRESPONSIBLE! I hated people who were out of touch with the world. Now at 42, I understand. I understand why they stay away. I get why they don’t want anything to do with it.
They hate the feelings of it all. They’ve witnessed the intimidation and the division that it creates. They’ve experienced the racism and violence that can ensue before and after the election.
They want no part of the negativity. I don’t blame them. Lets respect each others right to vote and not to. The latter is difficult I understand because people fought so hard for the rights. Especially for blacks and women. But don’t judge a person who doesn’t want to get involved. That is their right too.
You know I have my candidate of choice and it may not go my way. Regardless life goes on.
