Much has been said about yesterday’s election. I’ve read a lot of blogs this morning, mostly by Christian, homeschooling moms, just the kind of people that Senator-Elect Mark Warner called a “threat to what it means to be an American.” They are disappointed and worried and I don’t blame them. I am very glad that my husband’s retirement from the Army is already in the works. But I’m worried about what happens when he enters the civilian workforce. I’m all for rendering unto Caesar and all that, but really, where is the motivation to get good grades, find a good job and work hard to achieve your own piece of the pie? It’s hard not to worry that after 20 years of service to our nation, at a price we never bargained for, we’ll finally be able to make some real money, only to see it “redistributed.”
But you know what? We will all be OK. We are not in charge here. We never were.
I’ll leave you with this quote from Charles L. Allen:
“When you say a situation or a person is hopeless, you are slamming the door in the face of God.”
