I know I said I was going on a technology fast.
And, I know I said I felt indifferent about the election.
But I need to take both of those things back.
My heart just feels kind of heavy.
This election I learned that I just really, really, really dislike politics. I really did not like all the negativity the candidates would feast upon about the other candidate. I get it, you need to point out the pros and cons of each other. And I get it, politics isn't about sunshine and daisies and unicorns.
But for some reason I was just really affected by it.
I really despised all the hurtful things people would say in public, on Facebook, in random conversations, directed at their opposing view. A blatant lack of respect for fellow citizens.
I am not super conservative, nor am I very liberal.
There is a lot of good on either party, in my opinion.
Do I think Obama will do his best? I sure hope so. Do I think Romney would have done a good job? I think he would have. I am being kinda/really ramble-y. Just, does any one else feel the loss of hope in our people? People pro-Obama and pro-Romney. It feels like the country is getting more and more divided, and maybe that is what's hard for me? The lack of unity, or, the lack of feeling that our nation is working towards the same goals, together.
So that's where I am with this whole election.
I keep the quote running in my heart:
"Your future is as bright as your faith."
