We must accept finite disappointment but we must never lose infinite hope.
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Personally, I'm not there yet. But, I'm trying.
Of course, the news about raising the debt ceiling hasn't helped.
"The Republican-controlled Congress put off dealing with the debt ceiling before adjourning in October, preferring not to force members to vote on the politically sensitive issue of adding to the national debt before the November elections."
How convenient!Nor has the recent news that my eighteen year-old nephew who just graduated high school this past Spring and is currently going through training in the Army will be sent to Afghanistan as soon as he is done, helped me to process this extreme disappointment any easier.
Well, I guess I'm moving along in the grieving process. I have graduated from denial to bitterness. Watch out when it gets to the reckoning stage.
