Toward A Tipping Point

I’m normally a calm, serene, and even-tempered person. I like to take long walks to relieve stress. I also normally try to avoid making public comments about politics. But the more I see in the news, the more I am angered, amazed, and appalled.

I am angered by bills that are considered on the senate floor; I am amazed by local and state governments taking away constitutional rights of their citizens; I am appalled by irrelevant issues bickered about by the public, media, and presidential candidates.

I won’t point a finger of blame, nor will I claim that I have a solution. But as I observe, as I listen my shoulders tense. My jaw tightens. My fists clench.

What is to be done? I don’t think I can walk this off.
