Looking ahead...even if it's just toward the weekend!

Hello, I hope this post finds you well.  I've got my eyes on the weekend... and it can't get here soon enough.  I'm tired...physically and emotionally! Whew!!

The election is over and I must say, this has been a difficult time for me.  I guess it's the first time that I've been through an election of this proportion while being so connected through Social Media.  I'm truly shocked by how divided our Country has become. I find it sad that people spout hateful words to one another merely because we disagree. Tolerance is in great demand. I have resisted making any political comments on Facebook or Twitter, although I've had to bite my tongue at times to stop myself.  My oldest son voted in his first Presidential election and it was a big deal to him, as it should be.   We are proud of this Country and of the Freedoms that we have.  As an American I will support my President regardless of my preference, but not everyone feels this way.  I think that it's a shame that billions of dollars are spent on campaigns when that money could be used for real good.  I think that there are hateful, intolerant people on both sides and sadly freedom of speech does not come with a filter or kindness.

This concludes my one and only political rant.  God Bless America!

Big Hugs!

I am glad the election is over and I agree with on how sad it is that the country has become so intolerant of each others views and beliefs.
I have had friends on facebook unfriend and stop talking to people over this election. It's sad.

Thats cool that your son got to vote for the first time. I was very excited when I got to vote the first time. Voting is it's own right of passage!

My youngest son voted for his first time also...It was great to talk to him because he was very informed about most issues! He lives 8 hrs from us ....so not many influences there....

Yeah, me too. And it's a relief to know the news. I think he deserves it. Everybody knows that he's great. That's Pres. Obama I'm talking about.

Don't get me started on the politicos. I have very strong opinions but they're based on MY opinions and not the opinions of a bunch of blowhards on TV. Avid followers of those blowhards seem to be the ones that post the most often in the social media. Thank goodness it's over. :)
