Thoughts for my Thoughts: “Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you.”-Pericles

In honor of the emotionally draining election period we are going through and today’s voter registration deadline, I thought I’d share a quick quote from one of my favorite philosophers.

“Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you.”-Pericles

In summary my friends, please vote.

I know that this election is being touted as the election to end all elections but that is simply untrue. Our right and duty to exercise our freedom of involvement in public matters, has and will always matter. Please do not forget that regardless of the outcome or of the individuals running for office.

I encourage you to explore for yourself what you are the policies being proposed by both sides regardless of your political leanings. Empathy and compromise are the best ways to deal with this contentious time period.

I’d love to hear more from you. Happy debating my friends!

Yours always,

EM
