While I would love to escape the harsh realities of the world with cheery, whimsical blog writing and leave the tough stuff to the more educated and experienced, there are times when a quiet homemaker just has to speak up for what is right.
Many of us are consumed with our responsibilities and may be unaware or purposely ignoring current events with the assumption such matters will not affect us personally. We like to think that maybe these ugly problems will just go away if we keep our heads low and mind our own business.
But no, that's not the way it works. I have learned that the issues I choose to ignore are often the ones needing my diligent, dedicated prayer and personal attention. Choosing to be oblivious to the obvious leads to great heartache and even bigger problems.
I am pretty sure I am "preaching to the choir" here with those who frequent my blog. Let us all continue to be diligent to pray, vote, support those who speak out for all that is holy, and do all else we can to uphold godliness in our nation.
I feel Ted Cruz has worded it well at a time when the liberal news media chooses to ignore the real issues at stake.
Quote from Ted Cruz ( http://www.frc.org/get.cfm?i=WA16E19&f=WU16E07)
”Having spent many years in law enforcement, I've handled far too many cases of child molesters, of pedophiles, of people who abused little kids. The threats of predators are serious, and we should not facilitate allowing grown men or boys to be in bathrooms with little girls... I encourage every school superintendent, school board, and parent across this nation to disregard this barely veiled threat from the White House aimed at overturning the utterly reasonable practice of preventing men and boys from entering girls' restrooms and changing rooms. As a father of young girls, I wouldn't want my daughters being forced to change in the same room as men and boys. It's that simple. And parents across this country shouldn't have to tolerate it either."
