The country and in fact the area had a very interesting weekend I would say.
We learned a lot about ourselves both good and bad.
So what did we learn?
We learned in the case of the passing of Senator John McCain, that people, not remarkably most of the time say very nice things about a person. They pick the very time when the words may mean the least.
What is unfortunate is that we don’t often say those things to people before it gets to the end.
And, while that is understandable, it appears that we spend a lot of time avoiding working with those people and then wondering -- when it is far too late what if it would be like if we just had more time to get things done.
But that is not the only thing we learned.
We learned that a casino can be built in a relatively short period of time with the hope that it and the things surrounding it will be successful.
But we also learned that for all the good of the the casino---
People are still shot and killed.
People are still robbed, or get drunk or take advantage of others, all in the hope of getting something that they want at the expense of others.
For all the good of a person or a project, one thing is that the world has a lot of changing to do if it is to take advantage of the goodness in an effort to create more good rather than despair.
Senator McCain once said, “No just cause is futile, even if it’s lost, if it helps make the future better than the past.”
If we live by that, and do that, the world will be more what the late senior senator from Arizona would want.
Times are changing. We need to change for the better before time runs out.
