Mister Rogers: A Contrasting View
Right after posting Richard's pitch for Bernie, I heard from Mister Rogers who thought that an addendum was in order.
Ann: Mister Rogers, I think I may have made a mistake by putting up Richard’s opinion on Bernie.
Mister Rogers. Yes, Ann, perhaps you did. It is never wise to get in the middle of a political disagreement because there are so many sides to so many questions.
I do not know whom I would vote for in this election, and many people may feel the same. I can say that in general I look for someone who is calm under pressure, whose word can be trusted, and who cares for the well-being of the people he or she serves.
Service I feel is the key. Judgement, intelligence, and experience are all important factors to bring to the job but a true understanding of what is needed to better the lives of those whose are touched by government, and everyone is foremost for me. But everyone has different criteria.
So, perhaps it would be better that your blog not be used to tout the abilities of one candidate over another. Here we join with others in the service of Spirit, and Spirit works for the betterment of all candidates and those they seek to serve. There are so many reasons that people vote as they do. So let us simply pray that Source guide the paths of all those who consider serving in as government officials and to help each of us see the others as a worthwhile human beings bringing the best that we have to these challenging times.
A: Thank you, Mister Rogers and amen. My apologies to all.
