Why I'm here....

Since I've always been quick with an opinion an old friend once lost and again found suggested that perhaps I should share with more people my commentary. Never being one to pass on a challenge I thought I'd give it a whirl.

The Impossible Dream

As many of us know every move you make in life is watched and judged. Some of us are watched more closely than others, probably because we have a tendency to believe that our opinions should matter. Now notice I said should. That doesn't mean they do. Often times our opinions are taken as aggressive behavior. They are taken as wrong doing or trouble making in progress. No matter how noble our intentions we fall off that pedestal that either others or ourselves have placed us on. So can you imagine running for an office such as President of the United States of America? I am in constant amazement at the over whelming amount of people and articles that are constantly looking to find fault with him. Get a clue people, he's human. He's not going to be perfect, because no human is. Here is the kicker though. How many of these people trying to tear him down and find fault with him could have a faultless enough record to become President of the United States of America? You heard me. I mean do you understand and realize what an extensive back ground check goes into this before they can take this office? Do you understand that his entire life from birth up is placed under a microscope? Not to mention his family's life? And what an inspiration anyone taking that office could be to the rest of us if we open our eyes. I mean they stand up and say, "This is what I believe in and I'm willing to take the abusive of people's demands for my perfection in order to see it achieved." Now there are many reasons I could never be president. Some of which I don't think ought to be aired here on the world wide web. Mostly because I do hold to one of these ideas that these great men who have held office have held. That is that I believe that I should stand up for what I believe in. I should fight for what I feel is right and even though it's painful I will do it even at the blunt of being the joke of someone elses ridicule. I will do it knowing that few will understand why or get that I'm often fighting for them. I will do it knowing that I will be outcast as aggressive and sometimes too forthright. Am I perfect. Wow I'm really about as far from perfect as they can get. Here's a kicker for people who want to get amusement on my behalf - I don't hate anyone. I am not currently angry at anyone. I hold no ill will of anyone. I honestly do wish each and every person out there a good life. So how do we achieve such greatness as Obama, Clinton, Bush, and many many others. I know I'm being judged right now for saying greatness and at least one of those names in my sentence, but think about it. Each over come the odds and overcome ridicule and public judgement to reach for their goals. Each strived for an impossible dream and grabbed the brass ring. What is your dream? What holds you back from attempting with all your might to get what you want? Is it fear of what others will think? Say? Do? Here's hoping each and everyone of you takes advantage of the freedoms provided under our flag and reaches for your own impossible dream.
