I was shocked to hear such hatred coming from such a young girl. A girl whose only concern should be what color of socks she is going to wear to school tomorrow, or how far her Mom will let her ride her bike today. What happened to the innocence of childhood? Sadly, in this little girl's life, it's been tainted by some hateful talk she's overheard in her home.
I made her stop talking like that and urged her to not think about it or talk about it like that. I told her little girls like her shouldn't be worrying about politics, let the adults handle it. Little ones don't need such stress and worry in their lives. It was so sad, it just broke my heart for her.
I asked my bus worker (a teen in the public schools here) if there was a lot of talk about the election in the high school and she said, "OH YES! And I'm so sick of it! The kids aren't even old enough to vote or have any say in it, but they insist on talking about it and choosing political sides. Some of them are really hateful about it."
I am just so tired of all the mud slinging TV ads, newspaper articles, billboards, bumper stickers, yard signs, etc.... I don't even watch the debates, because you know BOTH of them speak out of both sides of their mouth! Oh I plan to vote - you can count on that!
I don't know who will be voted in on Nov. 4 though, but you know what, whoever it is, God is still in control and like it or not, we'll get the leader we deserve as a nation.
Doesn't it just make you say even more:
Even so COME Lord Jesus!
