I am wearing an Obama pin today. Why you might ask? or maybe you are asking, “did Kyle vote for Obama?” Well, first God forbid I vote for Obama right, or that I voted pro-choice. Because I did see a sign in someones yard yesterday that said “God votes pro-life and so should you.” So obviously I didn’t vote for Obama because he is pro-choice and God doesn’t do that, and I follow God, so I then voted for McCain.
Putting all this tongue and cheek stuff aside, not matter who I voted for or who you voted for I would encourage you to wear an Obama pin today.
I am wearing one for a couple of reasons:
1) I like to make people mad, and I work at a place that is 98% republican Obama haters
2) I really believe that we should support our leaders, whoever they may be, and pray for them.
3) I am a teacher. Though this might seem a little contradictory of what I should be teaching on, in my mind it is not. I want to teach my students to stop thinking the way that they are told to think. I want them to evaluate, process and then act. I told them this formula yesterday: Hear, believe, act. Whatever they may hear believe and act on is up to them, but they need to pursue truth. I want to encourage them to love their enemies and ones they do not like. Just a thought.
I feel really trendy writing this, check this link as to why I feel like this:
But I feel strong on this. So no matter who you voted for, your next 48 hours of actions will speak highly of you and what you ascribe to as truth.
