What is wrong with them?

Why have they lost their way so much? They want to take all the money from the most important things and give it to their own projects. The changes they make are going to hurt the economy and make us less safe. 

I can’t even call them leaders. They make poor choices, their history is corrupt and they seem unintelligent. 

What really needs to happen is a little more cooperation from their side. They need to change. They are holding onto a decision just so they don’t have to admit being wrong. They want power. I’m sure they’re going to vote for only their side even though some of those people are bad people. 

I don’t know why my friend supports them. I can’t even talk to people who support that way of thinking. How could they hate everything about this country and it’s history?


It seems that nearly everyone can agree with the above statement as long as there are no names or parties attached. I’ve left those parts out and only included the contention. Seen under this light, it’s amazing what has been allowed into our life.

The biting comments. The destroyed relationships. The justification of judgment.

A Scorecard for Life

I enjoy early morning rounds of golf. The world is still quiet. The course is still calm. The rising sun makes for some beautiful photos. I snap a photo each morning to include in my journal for the day. Sometimes it will be my only good shot of the day.

Some time ago, I scored 84 in a round of golf for the first time in a couple decades. It was exciting. Kind of. I had thought back to the round and remembered some gimme putts that were probably not sure things. I also had a couple mulligan shots.

When those shots are sitting in the back of your mind, the scorecard is a lot harder to celebrate.

On that day I made a commitment. If I am going score a golf round, I would always keep a completely accurate score. I don’t require it of playing partners. It’s not for the sake of competition. I just wanted to have an accurate measuring stick from that point on. That way, accomplishments really are something to be celebrated. I know that they are true.
