Obama presented his executive action plans for immigration tonight, and against my better judgment, I went over to facebook and saw the rantings of one of my very conservative "friends". Wow. You'd think the sky would be falling.
He reminds me of my grandmother who lived with us until she died. Toward the end of her life, she carried on about how the world was coming to an end, or maybe our country was coming to an end, can't really remember. I figured out that HER life was coming to an end, and she was projecting outward. So too my conservative friend, I think. He is somewhat old and is caregiver to his wife who is bedridden with MS. He sees destruction wherever he looks, especially when he looks at our country, and more precisely, when he looks at democrats, and to put a fine point on it, whenever he considers Barak Obama.
And that reminds me of our beloved elderly aunt, just turned 93. She dislikes Obama. She admits it's because he's black. Well, at least she's honest.
That's enough of a reason to be glad nobody lives forever. I can love them, forgive them, yet be thankful they don't get to spew their ignorance and hatred forever.
