The Election That Threatened To Steal Christmas: An Intervention
Although about half the voting population felt like they collectively woke up to an empty Christmas Tree this year, Christmas is not lost. The town is still abuzz with murmurings of broken hearts and shattered hopes of a glass ceiling that is begging to be smashed after almost 100 years since the woman’s vote was ratified. (Maybe in 2020 when it will actually be 100 years). Instead, we got shattered windows and smashed cars, and those who would threaten to steal the silent vote of a peaceful protester’s cry for help. This is the MyTrafficMan.NET Steering Column and we discuss legal issues ranging from simple traffic infractions to more serious traffic violations like DUI, criminal defense and auto-injury claims, but today, the direction we take is a WARNING: there’s a Grinch living in your heart that threatens to steal Christmas. That’s right, the Grinch is an idea that lives in your heart not in the White House. The Grinch lives through actions and choices, and locking people up in prisons of fear and uncertainty. But just as in every good vs. evil story that we’ve grown to love, there’s a way out. When I think back on this year, I remember the lessons from The Six Degrees of Trouble that described the choices that lead to a tornado of trouble that leaves you picking up the pieces or the melancholy of depression that is only cured through intervention or the four other degrees of trouble. I remember the call for Community Leadership through the Spirit of Giving. I draw strength from the actions of the Heart of A Local Champion, and most importantly, I remember the lesson from Rising to the Top, What You Shouldn’t Forget. If you feel fear and uncertainty this holiday season or know someone who does, please intervene with a spirit of giving, loving, and listening to free them from their jailer, the Grinch.
