To Blog or Not to Blog

 

I haven’t written a blog for a long time because I didn’t want to get into a political discussion. I’ve found that it seldom does any good to argue politics or religion. It just comes between people. Recently, however, I had lunch with several friends I hadn’t seen for a while. Politics came up, and a friend I care about and respect began defending certain people in the political realm. I forgot my own edict to not argue politics and things turned tense.

Another friend saw where this was leading and quickly changed the subject. Bless her dear heart. (And I mean that in the best way, not the southern “bless your heart, you’re a nitwit” way. Lol)

So that’s why I haven’t been blogging. However, I’m beginning to see a sliver of daylight at the end of the long political tunnel. The sliver appeared when I watched two young, intelligent women on TV discuss women issues. One was a Republican and the other a Democrat. They totally agreed with one another and discussed how they could work together to solve serious problems and make the world a better place. Now that’s a concept I can wrap my mind around.

So maybe I’ll start blogging again. Or maybe not. We’ll see.

In the meantime, regardless of the beliefs of whoever is reading this blog, I’d just like to say, “Let’s work together.”

Yes, bless your heart. And not in the nitwit way either.

I have found that trying to "discuss" politics on facebook is like hitting your head against a hard surface, over and over. You think that eventually you might make a dent, but in reality you just end up with lumps.

Yes, let's work together. Find common ground. Amen.

Thanks for the post.
