One of the most interesting and shocking bits of information that I gained once leaving childhood is that no matter how much a thing might matter to any given individual, that thing, in reality, might not matter at all in the enormous schemata of our whole solar system.
Wishing on the first star out at night, for example, didn’t mean anything at all; not even to me. What a blow.
Another truism, however, was equally shattering in that so many seemingly insignificant matters are extremely, extremely important. The little things in life suddenly morph into very big things in life; so big, in fact, that historians can look back and point to a turn in history. This is where we are today as a community, a state and a nation in who and what we are voting for.
Know who is running for what. Take the time and effort to peruse qualities like honesty, faithfulness, dedication to duty, and the candidate’s rigors in life. What issues did they face in their development that led them to stand or fall?
Little things mean a lot, the dailiness of keeping on keeping on when it’s not popular, when friends are lost and, most of all, when people scorn their honorable choices. The embarrassment experienced. The courage to endure while trembling inside.
I am writing this letter to tell you why I strongly support Sheriff Michael Howell in his re-election run for sheriff of Coosa County. A strong leader is not one who never screws up, but one who stays in the right lane and continues to work toward goals as outlined by our Creator. That’s a lot to work toward every single day of a person’s life. It’s not for the wimp hearted.
As you leave the polls, think about what you can do to keep our community safe, because the world is surging through our borders and also flying off to communist countries to make deals with the devil. Take time to think about seemingly small things that form big things and the seemingly huge matters that don’t matter at all.
