Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the soon to be rain soaked island of Nantucket! Great to be with you and yours on this Tuesday morning, the eighth day of May, 2012, a clear moment on Cape, a beautiful sunrise already here and gone, with heavy rains expected a little later on in the afternoon–be careful what you wish for… As the race for the White House kicks off in high gear across this great land of OURS, it has come to my attention, via some of the much appreciated comments made regarding this unique website, seacapecod.net, that my conclusions don’t always add up and perhaps my leaps of FAITH in mankind are a bit misplaced. How true. “In my defenselessness my innocence lies”. The core reason I write this blog every day, pro bono, is to WAKE UP as many people out there as possible to the policies that have been implemented under the radar for decades now, policies that have hurt the average man or woman, not to mention the children, in a country that should be above that sort of greedy political fervor, a country that fought in two world wars, faced giant civil rights issues, put an end to the communist threat of the Cold War and moved into a leadership role around the world in humanitarian efforts that define the very essence of what this country is really all about. I sincerely appreciate all of my readers from around the globe and welcome any and all comments, for it is in knowing that one can be wrong from ‘time to time’–being open to critical criticism–that allows one to grow, not only as a writer, but as a human being. This election in November is pivotal for so many reasons, none so much as the FACT that for far too long now, the top wage earners in this country have had all of the breaks, while the shrinking middle class and working poor have carried most if not all of the burden. What is worse is the fact our kids are not getting the educations they deserve, to reach that potential in every child, and that is something that will not go unchallenged. I was lucky enough to have had a father who put me through the University of Vermont and helped me get my first ‘corporate gig’, a ‘gig’ I played in for close to 17 years, finally realizing ‘it’ did not serve either one of us, finally breaking free of those golden handcuffs and taking that leap to become a full time author, blogger, photographer and naturalist. Hopefully giving back something to a society that has given him so much. That is what I wish for my friends who are in that top .001 percent bracket, for it is in GIVING that WE truly receive, not the other way around, and if you believe that Mitt Romney is that man who will turn this ship about, after decades of abuse and neglect, than have at it, but, if you believe there may be a better choice, i.e. the very fine President Barack Obama we already have, the first African-American to reach that level of responsibility, then you are as right as rain, because President Obama will not flip or flop on issues so critical to millions of American men, women and children, for he KNOWS what it is like to struggle and what it is like to GIVE BACK to those who need that help the MOST. Have a wonderful day and may God continue to Bless this FAIR and FINE nation, a nation that has history behind it, a rich and proud history that was not based on a classic line from the film “Jerry McGuire”–show me the money!”… PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
