While some might say that choosing a president is not quite as important as choosing a spouse, the imprint left on our lives by presidents can be significant.
So, what makes a good spouse truly good? A good spouse is a great friend—someone who accepts and loves you just as you are even as s/he challenges you to become a better person.
Whoever is elected president will challenge us. Whoever is elected will miss our personal mark from time-to-time and will frustrate us because he/she won’t quite do things the way we would like.
So, how do we see things moving forward in our country, my friends? How will your vote this coming Tuesday provide for our shared future? Because, make no mistake about it: We are all in this together!
