Some of the things we encounter, when we sit and think about them, are kinda like miracles.
Your reading this, for example. Some guy from Georgia is typing on a nonexistent keyboard on a device that just a few years ago was science fiction and you’re reading it.
Add to that the fact that I’m currently around six miles above the Atlantic Ocean, south of Reykjavik, Iceland, as I type and publish this. Kinda amazing, ain’t it?
But, the reason I’m where I am is another miracle: I’m going to visit my 13-day old grandson. He’s not my first grandchild, but he’s my daughter’s first child, and the only one I’ve not yet held in my arms. He’s the latest little miracle in the family.
These things, whether they are the latest advances in technology, or a natural process that’s been going on since life appeared, are among the miracles we encounter every day. But, the latest advances in technology pale to the oldest processes of nature. Typing on an iPad on the Internet while in flight on an international airliner is really cool. But getting to hold my new grandson? Now that’s cool!
That little miracle … he’s important to me. I want him to have a better life than I’ve had … and mine’s been kinda nice. I want him to grow up in the greatest nation on earth, and I want him to not wonder what the hell his parents and grandparents were doing, allowing a bunch of jackasses tear up the country, either by design or by ignorance.
So, I want to use the latest technological miracles to help make life better for my latest little miracle in the family. And, I want you to do the same.
This election is important. We’ve had four years of ignorance and incompetence in the White House. That’s four years too many. But, we can do better. I believe in America, and I want my grandchildren to grow up in a better America than I grew up in — and the one I grew up in was pretty awesome.
November is important. And so is our children’s … and our grandchildren’s … future. Don’t let the Democrats keep screwing it up. And hold the Republicans accountable.
