Decision Time

Well, if the superstition about the Washington Redskins plays its hand today, the other party will win the White House election.
Losses are learning experiences and opportunities for improvement.

I like to see events as I believe they should be and work towards that end. That's why today's Baha'i Perspectives post (see my links on the left) really has me thinking.
In part:

"Should any one of you enter into the service (or employment) of the government, he must live and act with the utmost truthfulness, righteousness, chastity, uprightness, purity, sanctity, justice and equity. But if—I seek refuge in God—any one betray the least of trusts or neglect and be remiss in the performance of duties which are intrusted to him, or by oppression takes one penny of extortion from the subjects, or seeks after his own personal, selfish aims and ends in the attainment of his own interests, he shall undoubtedly remain deprived of the outpourings of His Highness the Almighty."
"…is there any deed in the world that would be nobler than service to the common good? Is there any greater blessing conceivable for a man, than that he should become the cause of the education, the development, the prosperity and honor of his fellow-creatures? No, by the Lord God! The highest righteousness of all is for blessed souls to take hold of the hands of the helpless and deliver them out of their ignorance and abasement and poverty, and with pure motives, and only for the sake of God, to arise and energetically devote themselves to the service of the masses, forgetting their own worldly advantage and working only to serve the general good."
-`Abdu’l-Bahá

 So I urge those who are called upon to serve the people- devote yourselves to using qualities such as these and be of real benefit to others and to yourselves!

I voted around 8 am today. NO LINES!

If the Redskins legend is true, then I don't regret they lost yesterday, painful as it was.
