Its time to accept

I woke up this morning and while I was walking to the kitchen I noticed that there was frost on the lawn. A light white covered lawn. For those of us that are visual, I had to accept that it is getting cold and winter is here. During the last week, the temperature has been really nice. It was almost like springtime. In my mind, I did not want it to change. But I knew the change was coming. I’m one of those people who have to see it to believe that. Well, I see it.
Now, what does that have to do with the world around me and my thoughts. It’s time for my president to acknowledge that he will not be in the White House for the next four years. During the election I voted for President Trump. And through all the madness of the electoral process I really wanted to see him win. But that did not happen. I believe that no matter what party is in charge, my president was always my president. No matter who I voted for when the election was over I supported my president. That is not to say that I agreed with the policies of the party that won the presidential election. I certainly did not agree with all the programs of our prior presidents. But I always believed that once elected to the office, that person deserves my support. When I and my fellow veterans fought on foreign lands we believe that we represented the United States of America. And in doing so we believe that we represent the President of theUnited States. In my mind, the United States of America is the best place to live and work and worship. Neither I or my fellow veterans stopped representing (fighting )the United States because of whoever was in the office of the president. We believed in our country and we fought and many died.
Once we got home we had the option to vote to support any of the candidates or policies presented by the different parties. As much as I may not agree with your opinion, I fought for the right so that you could have an opinion. Don’t get me wrong, I like it when things go my way. But, they don’t always go my way. I fought and believed in the right for everyone to have their own opinion.
So, as I look out on the land and see that it is obviously cold and it is no longer sring or summer or even fall. It is obvious to me the time is marching on. It is also time for me to accept the results of the presidential and national elections. That does not mean that I’m happy with the results or some of the policies as they are being voted on. But once they are voted on it is time to accept it and go on with life.
If you look back to the editorial sections of most papers and publications from the past each time there’s a national action someone will claim that it is the most important election in history. But, also after each election the country moves on. I’m sure that as the next election happens in four years someone will claim that it is the most important election of all history.
So my thought for the day is for you to look out your window and if there is frost on the ground you’re going to have to accept the fact that summer is gone and winter is here. You can be angry, grumpy and want to fight someone, but in my mind that’s not the answer. If your candidate did not win then commit to being more active during the next election. You can help make a difference if you become involved. But, I think we’ve had enough hatred for those who do not share our thoughts and opinions
I for one, will do my best to support the President of the United States. I love my country and the principles that it was created with. As many of you will say. God bless America.
