"I invite everyone to choose forgiveness rather than division, teamwork over personal ambition."
This from 2013 demanded another run. It's deja vu all over again!
10 Things I’ve learned (or been reminded of) during the government shutdown:
- During a government shutdown, federal employees aren’t the only ones who lose income.
- The statement, “No matter what your political party . . . ,” precedes a statement that totally depends on one’s political opinion.
- The work that federal employees are hired to do, waits for them if they are not able to do it.
- People say things to families of federal employees without realizing the implication of their comments. Example: “Yeah, but they’ll get their money eventually, so what’s the big deal?”
- Creditors actually want current pay, not back pay.
- Unscheduled time off that comes up suddenly, could end at any moment, and includes a cessation of income? Not exactly a vacation.
- Passion does not equal knowledge.
- Facebook™ doesn’t lend itself to polite political conversation.
- People who post political rants on social media, don’t really want to hear from people who disagree with them.
- I never want to be so arrogant as to believe my opinion is the only opinion of value.
