who is going to fill in the shoes..."
... There are neither Republican nor Democrat banners on my front lawn, just a pair of orange pumpkins & simple harvest decoration… bumper stickers on my car, NO thank you! But can LENORENEVERMORE talk a little politics today besides the frivolous things in life that dominate 99percent of this blog here… This election year is a true defining moment of recent US history indeed... it shows us how far this country had come and heading towards. Within our lifetime, it had gone from segregation to an African-American man running as a prime candidate for the presidency. Yes, race is still a sensitive issue…. There is the occasional ugliness of course... But I don't think any comparable nation has made so much progress in so little time….America is after all still a young country….a reminder that African-Americans were only allowed to vote back in the sixties… And despite the trenchant and sometimes belligerent tone of this election, I'm confident that we shall continue to come together...and hopefully vote & elect the right president. At times, I found myself almost like in the middle of a ‘civil war’ though and had to pick a side…The colors of red, white and blue are so far apart… The people in this nation are so far apart…I hear the war, financial crisis, joblessness, health care, faith, education, environment... discussed and debated with charged emotions…
As the ticker-thingie runs along the bottom of the television news screen, questions do run through my minds. What’s our role in this election? What would the future hold for this nation? For the past weeks or so, I was quite heavy-handed by the importance… can be quite overwhelming but really exciting time! ...then a big Ding-ding-ding! Yes, I remembered that this is my blog and I can do what I want… So here it is, “red- white- blue color theme” ! It's abundantly and visually and literally clear by now that I am not really into politics and most of you aren't fooled by my interest either. When I think about it, I don't really hate politics... I just prefer visual delights… call me shallow… at least I am honest, unlike most politicians… " GOD BLESS AMERICA "
