We are bombarded by newscasts about two particular political candidates, whose names will not be mentioned in this blog. We all know who the people are and what their claims to fame are and will be, as, we approach the end of this political campaign and election day.
It’s important to notice individuals who are taking too seriously political debates, personal conversations, newsflashes and appearances by each candidate, and allowing their personal feelings and decisions about their lives to be swayed by the highest bidder. I don’t feel that I have a right to tell people what they should or should not think about politics and how they should vote. Everyone is entitled to make their own judgments and to vote their conscience.
What I would like to say is that politics are just political and long after this set of events are over, you will still be you and I will be me. Let’s not allow the poorly constructed conversations and behaviors of political candidates to dictate our future. We must remain true to what we know to be evident and buckle down for a rough ride, because politics are just political and they don’t define who we really are.
The constant bantering and name-calling is not in the best interest of our students, who are learning important lessons from parents and kinfolk. Let’s teach them how to rise above the muck and mire while maintaining our dignity and freedom to express ourselves. Let us not allow one person’s agenda to set us back in the way that we treat one another.
Politics define the inner workings of a political machinery and helps us to decide who will succeed our current President of the United States. Arguing with each other and unfriending others, who don’t think or talk like you during the election season is taking matters too far. Stay true to who you are and allow others to do the same. In time, we will settle in and realize that we are more resilient than an election campaign and all of the cronies that come with the process.
