Can we put our attention on something good?
I am sitting here watching the debate...and...AND...I want a different discussion. My goal and intention is to turn my (our) focus on something, well positive. To activate hope again, that hope that initially excited me about Obama's message that has seemed to diminish in the energy and fear of the current market and the tendency towards mud-sligging during these weeks before the election. I want to have a discussion here about vision, what are our hopes and dreams beyond what is going on right now, beyond who is actually elected, do our dreams really change based upon who is running the country? What is the vision of hope that you hold for this country period, that is not contingent upon who is sitting in the oval office. I see a country that is in recovery and strong. Moving out of a financial struggle but as a result of the "struggle" a country that has learned to take ownership again, to be responsible in its choice and decisions instead of blaming everything on them, the government, elected officials, money hungry wall street, etc. etc. Join me in this conversation and make a post. What is your vision for good?
