THE GULF COAST, Summer 2005
Who's to blame?
ME. That's who.
God forgot to abdicate and put me in charge.
I'm to blame for allowing myself to get caught up in all the rhetoric. The news media is soooo damn good at getting me all worked up in their friggin' opinions of what should be done.
I'm to blame for putting my own beliefs on other people's blogs in the comments section. When I do that, it keeps me caught up in the rhetoric. The same goes for writing my own posts, although I realize that's what blogs are for. But it doesn't allow me to keep a balanced eye on what is really happening. I know in my heart that everyone is doing the best job they can. I must accept that. Perceptions. Perspective. Perceptions.
So, from this point, I will try to behave myself. If I don't like what's happening, it's my responsibility to change it. If I can find the Courage.
Otherwise, I just have to LET IT GO.
The Wisdom to know the difference.
