Coming to Grips

Of course I cannot sleep.

I am trying to wrap my mind around an election that was unfathomable to me.

There is no single thing to blame. It is not the hurricane, not the media bias, not the wrong candidate. It is that a culture can be so numb to the loss of freedom and staggering debt that chokes the life out of innovation and creativity that makes this so devastating. How can you restore hope, when freedom is lost?

We are a society that is lost if we don't understand the magnitude of how much we live outside of our means. When there is no more money, what then?

Eventually someone will stop lending and start buying. Buying shares in a nation that has been free for centuries.

Please, Lord, show me how to respond.
