The media has inundated us with coverage of the US election campaign especially Donald Trump’s diatribes which are much like dog and pony show performances.
Although I do take having a social conscience very seriously, I really can’t take politicians very seriously, and it’s never where I’d put my faith.
It seems those who are watching and are paying attention to politics, spend a good deal of time providing comic relief in order to combat that which has been described as being the hysteria of the masses. This may provide some comfort and provides a few laughs, but after the laughs are over, what then?
The serenity prayer immediately comes to mind because after all is said and done, this is the only real relief that will bring happiness in the long run.
Hopefully there are lessons to be learned by Canadians watching, as the US continues go further down into the political dumper. In the mean time, I’ll keep saying that serenity prayer.
