US Election 2020

Wow! The much expecting November 3 is here already. And, voting commences to determine who holds sway in the White House and possibly the US Senate for the next four (4) and two (2) years, respectively. Who knows what the results will be? Every American owes themselves and their generations yet unborn the civil duty of going out to vote.

"Not voting is not a protest. It is a surrender." — Keith Ellison.

"Voting is the expression of our commitment to ourselves, one another, this country, and this world." — Sharon Salzberg.

"Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper" — Larry Flynt.

Our lives are truly interconnected to one another, across oceans, seas, valleys, mountains, and man-made boundaries. The world is a global village, and everyday technology is making that village ever smaller. 

Four (4) years ago, I was all over the place campaigning for one of the candidates. Coming from the world of "Personal Development," he was the familiar face. More so, there were other ties and considerations. 

Two years ago, I had life happen to me, and one of my friends (and colleague) I shared with said I should keep it to myself and not let too many people know. Why? He said (not in too many words) many people will be glad it happened to me due to my obvious choice of candidate. 

Well? Such is life. We can only make the best decision today, based on all we know. At the end of the day, each of us is human - fallible. That, however, is no reason to stay down. You get up and keep getting up, learning from each and every experience of life. 

Life does not promise we'll always get it right. It only promises we will make it if we never give up trying.

So, step out today and do the best, you know. That is all life hold you responsible for. You'll get some, you'll miss some. Remain undaunted. Just keep learning. Keep developing and keep matching on.
