“When life gives you lemons……
Today, I find myself with an overwhelming urge to do a follow up on my last article. In the piece, I shared the many changes in my own personal and professional life and how I am striving each day to find the positives. When we are handed certain situation which can not be changed, finding a new way to view them is really the most productive choice. Our local Fox 13 News today and clips of “The Late Show” from Monday, November 14, 2016, both made it inevitable this piece would be written.
I woke up this morning and turned on the news with my cup of coffee as I do most mornings. The lead story began with a local Councilwoman and the violent threats she is receiving. This particular story then lead into (of course) another story and comments regarding President Elect, Donald Trump. Now, before I get too involved, I want to reiterate, I am not and never will be a Political Journalist. I am, however, an individual and have beliefs and opinions. Funny how earlier in life, I did not concern myself enough in political issues. Rarely did I engage in political conversations. Actually, I can guarantee, I still won’t.
Bob woke up and joined me in watching the story. When it concluded, he and I discussed the issues for a while. He then pulled up a YouTube clip from Late Night With Stephen Colbert. The clip was posted on November 15th and features Bernie Sanders’ appearance. The particular snippet of his appearance, fueled my desire for this follow-up.”
