We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
This just made me cry... again. I've known about this extraordinary father and his handicapped son, and the amazing feats of strength and devotion he has performed for him, year after year. Truly, there are angels walking amongst us on earth.
Wow, there are no coincidences. Another video about this father and son was shown as part of the sermon at church this morning: about the Father's love for us and our need in turn to show that sacrificial love to others around us.
This morning's scripture passage: "Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." (I Corinthians 13:6-8)
