OMG, Seize the Day!

 

A Personal Commentary

Watching the election returns last night as history was being made in Tennessee State Senate District 22 and the national race for president, I was mindful of my unique position as a witness to change.

I was keenly mindful that at the age of thirteen, my father and mother had insisted that I go to Washington, D.C. for the March on Washington in 1963. It was the first time I had ever traveled away from Charleston, and doing so myself was intimidating. Hearing all the speeches made that day astounded me. However, Dr. King’s address calling the nation to acknowledge its debt to America’s Creed was absolutely mesmerizing. Tonight, just short of six months since my father passed away, I witnessed an achievement of Dr. King’s Dream for this nation in which I know he would have rejoiced. My heart literally filled my chest in amazement, stunned and nearly in shock, that I have lived to see what my father, mother and grandfather could only dream of, become a reality. «Read the rest of this article»

Late night ramblings on the state of V.P. contender Sarah Palin

 

All research (that follows) is my own, although I hope the ideals I present are shared by most. Many of these questions have been asked before and are not original. I see McCain/Palin bumper stickers everywhere and I am getting scared, so I had to type out some things I had on my mind to see if I’m crazy or just alone in this state of confusion. It’s way past my bedtime so please excuse the grammar. No reply is necessary; I just had to get it off my chest, but I would like to know what everyone I took the time to send this to thinks about the following. So, if you would humor me for a moment, help me understand this:

Sarah Palin has stated she believes in a literal translation of the Bible; a literal translation of the Bible dates creation of the Earth at 4000 B.C. Is the U.S. prepared to elect someone who truly believes dinosaurs became extinct only 6000 years ago? Forget the fact that science has proven the age of the Earth to be in the billions of years through countless (independent of each other) disciplines. Is the U.S. prepared to give the nuclear launch codes to someone who cannot pronounce the word ‘nuclear’ and refuses to believe in the science that created it? «Read the rest of this article»
