It’s incredible from watching the new miniseries John Adams how nothing much has changed politically from over 200 years ago. George Washington, faced with a crucial international decision, made the best possible advised position. His leadership came under intense fire and he was burdened by the intense public opposition.

Sound familiar?

I remember hearing a phrase, ‘Heavy lies the crown’. How true it seems. Elected officials inaugurated to the cheers and fanfare and then exiting to scorn and anger. But I am glad to have the opportunity to elect and vote the best possible person into office. I don’t envy their position, but I respect the fact that no decision is easy and pray that it is for the greater of the country than the greater good of an individual.
