I'll never forget when I was about 12 years old and my father said to my mother to this effect...
"You know Betty... I thought I would desire to run for Office one day (after retiring from first career) and that I would enjoy serving my country in and through politics..., however I don't think I like "these people".
What an incredible visionary statement !
Dad, I do verily agree... and it may be precisely why I still run for office one day. First locally, then where needed / called. Sometimes, we MUST Serve in the worst and of capacities to effect change, and it doesn't serve the who a bit...but that's what's needed today or trust me,
...the anarchy many want will come to fruition.
My main concern is that the generations alive today don't know real suffering as my parents, depression children, clearly understood.
I have a very old-fashioned Rock solid principles and vision for no reason, and few have this today in this regard because you have parents as old was I at my age today and I'm almost 52. Dad will be 90 next year.
Just remember no matter where you are, and no matter what you were doing... there's somebody nearby that will willingly ruin yours and others lives and do so in just a few minutes... to serve nothing more than themselves.
When you're serving yourself only, you're full of nothing but sin.
What you think you stand for is everything me and my family don't... if you stand against us... everybody is always offered first to share in peace... but don't get me wrong, threatening a single one of us and we will all smote you from every direction.
When you stand against me and of my family, what you stand for is stealing away precisely what My Father earned through hard work, and therefore had such abundance to offer others... it's the type of work ethic that is almost completely gone today and with the type of scruples that seem to have disappeared too.
Whoever it is that you look up to, you just have to watch their work. Are they building an empire upon their own shoulders or everybody else's?
