As the election draws closer, it seems that all we are talking about is fear... What I don't understand is what's behind all the fear? This is supposed to be a nation based on Judeo/Christian principles and belief, along with all the other religions' tenets, so the primary premise is supposed to be faith in an all-knowing, all-seeing, ever-present God. Where is the faith in God? Has everyone succumbed to the media hype and tricks of political propaganda that is a part of and common to these events? Are we so weak that we have allowed all those who have lurked in the shadows brewing up their hateful brews to finally get an opportunity to come out and release their potions into our systems? I wish everyone would be man or woman enough to say what is on their minds about all the fear so we can get on with the business of electing a president and getting this country back in shape. Our duty to our children, our citizens, and the world is the most important thing right now. Not running around like Chicken Little saying, "The sky is falling, the sky is falling..." No matter who the president has been, or will be, whether he or she is black, white, female, or other, this is still America and we are all Americans. Let's act like it.
