I read a fair amount of news, typically politics interests me the most but I am no expert. In fact, I find myself constantly overwhelmed and confused by conflicting statistics and studies. I am all over the political map (if I were a State, I would be purple), with an "ideology" all my own. And I don't want to share it. This is what I want to share:
Policy needs to be critiqued, ideas challenged, motives questioned - but PEOPLE (yes, even politicians), they are children of God and deserve respect and kindness. Regardless of your party affiliation or the strength of your convictions, anger is never productive. It is dangerous. Be assertive, be courageous, be outspoken, but do not be angry. It is ugly and off-putting.
