Caution politics is mentioned in this post.
Today my heart and mind was with the people who marched for life in DC and elsewhere. Those events are always inspiring. I just wish the media would report them. Instead CNN talked about a march that didn’t even occur today and ignored (typical) the March for Life.
In other news, today I realized something. It was sort of like how I realized I was a conservative. See back in high school I remember in my Freshman year I had a semester history coarse on Washington State history (yeah they could have done more but whatever) and in it, they listed all the “traits” of the 2 current political parties. At the end of the list I remember thinking “I fit into the Republican party side perfectly but I am a Democrat.” Several years later, someone challenged me as to why I thought I was Democrat… it was then that I realized I wasn’t one.
So much of my life I have wanted to live here in the Northeast. I wanted to live in a city. I wanted to live near people. The thought that I would want to live in the country is absurd. Well I don’t want to live in the country now, but I realized that my parents put a bit of country into me with music. I HATED country music when I was a teenager. Seriously, turn it off if I can hear it. Like those people (I will admit I am like this) who can smell cigarette smoke a mile away and be utterly disgusted! That was me toward country music. But I have aged, mellowed a bit and I feel like there is a bit of country in me now. Not that I want to move to the middle of no where… or where there is no mass transit! Yikes!
However, where I grew up in Washington, I didn’t have to drive far and I could see the night sky with more stars then I could ever count (at least that is how I remember it). I remember in high school kids coming to school freely admitting that they were going to go hunting after school (for wild game). In New Jersey I fall over if anyone says they hunt and they are an adult! And if all this wasn’t enough, I married a self professed person from Alabama. What is more country then that?
I just prefer the city but I respect the other side of the coin.
Not sure what the point of this post is, but hey it is written. 🙂
