An emotionally struggling week for me this past week. I find myself wishing that I could just tune out politics and go about my merry way but instead I find myself extremely concerned with what the next few years may have in store for us. I’m struggling a lot too with what may happen between myself and many of my friends.
I have spent my entire life disagreeing with people on more topics than I can count, seeing things different than the majority and generally being the odd person in the room and therefore am comfortable with loving and being friends with people who see things differently. Unfortunately, I am seeing less and less of this and am actually being attacked more and more for simply having a differing opinion. I was reflecting and what I remember in the past is that people really didn’t talk politics very much at all. Living in a time now with so much information so readily available we can’t go back to that. So what are we going to do? I welcome any conversation on this topic.
When I wasn’t glued to phone or computer checking on the news last week I was helping a friend paint an the basement of an old house downtown, helping two other friends move some stuff, got my Utah concealed weapons carry permit, had a great date night with the wife, enjoyed some quality time with father and played a nice round of golf with my friends Carl and Scott.
I’m pretty excited about enjoying the Marine Corps Birthday tomorrow golfing with about 20 other Marines at the Federal Club. I hope you have a great week!
