We certainly are not perfect, and there are a lot of problems right now, but I still think this country has a lot of good things going on. We need to look to our history to encourage us; I don't think we're done yet. We need to encourage people to elevate their ways of thinking and living, to get past what they don't have to what they could have, to see the possibilities before them. We need to remove barriers that prevent people from fulfilling their potential, whether that is excessive government regulation, corporate dishonesty and greed or social barriers like racism--they need to come down for our society to refresh and renew itself.
In short, this isn't a bad place to be born in and live, and I am thankful.
Happy Independence Day everyone--have fun, be safe and give thanks.
Observations, Opinions, and Whatnot from the South Part of Town
What's this blog like?
Well, this blog is like...sitting around the kitchen table with friends and family...like a game of Rook with friends...sitting on the porch or deck or driveway with friends and neighbors...come on grab a drink and have a seat! You're in Ruskin Heights, or Terrace Lake Gardens or Stratford Estates for example. We might talk about anything--the new people moving in down the street, the economy, the Chiefs, crime, the mayor, health care, national new, world news, religion, cars, politics...careful now! Wide ranging, opinionated, but always respectful. In the end, we are all neighbors.
