I’m in the middle of NaNoWriMo.
That’s “National Novel Writing Month” for the uninitiated.
It’s a wacky thing where a bunch of overachievers get together and attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. It’s an average of about 1667 words a day, give or take.
Today is “bear day.” If you get stuck, write a bear scene into your story.
So. I need to get back to my bear scene, but I wanted to quickly say something about the election, because it just seems like I’m floating down the River Denial if I don’t. You know the one.
All I have to say is this: Fear has no place in the election booth.
Whatever you’ve heard about either candidate, their cronies, their taxes, their past, etc. Whatever you’ve dreamed, whatever leaders have said around you. Please, don’t take fear into the voting booth with you. Our country was not built on fear, but on the great vision of a few brave men. Moving forward for any people will always look like that.
Take courage. Take hope. Take heart.
And vote from there.
Oh, and, whoever you’re voting for, you might think about asking for a paper ballot. Not out of fear, but out of wisdom.
God bless America.
Be strong and of good courage; for you shall cause this people to inherit the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Josh 1:6
