This afternoon I mounted a Gary Fisher tow-behind to my 2001 Schwinn Homegrown, yeah the one I at onetime raced. Not more than an hour later, my granddaughter was churning out some watts uphill shouting how awesome riding a bike is. She's not yet ridden solo, instead she's been training wheeled. Today my heart swelled and sung with her joy. Wind? Check. Warmth? Check. Validation? Check.
I invite my brothers and sisters to use there rationality and notions of kindness promoted in our common religious upbringings to temper aggression. Trump is pretty much appealing to a primitive mindset and fears. -the same one that instinctively wants to defend our position in a race.We can do much better in real life. People who work to create a world where can coexist are our examples to follow and ignite in each of us admirable torches to carry. Shine your light brothers and sisters!
