ON THE BACK BURNER

Oct 18

I am always reluctant to talk politics and religion. I think of them as personal choices and as a private matter. That doesn't mean that I always practice what I just said. Two years ago, the day after the National election, I woke up in Jerusalem, turned on the English radio station and felt like I got a sucker punch to the stomach.I have had a stomach ache since then. For the first time in my voting career, I am going to a political campaign meeting. i am excited about this. I need to learn as much as I can. The meeting is for my information.  I don't plan on arguing with anyone, too late for that, but  I will help where I can. My kids are too old to ask me what I was doing when our political climate hit the fan, but my Grandchildren can. I will tell them  that I voted to change the climate,social action and everything that includes making our elected officials represent me.Let's see what happens.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.
