What is the right direction?
“There is nothing wrong with change, if it is in the right direction”
I huge percentage of my friends are republican. The responses to my last post were just as expected. People are very polarized by the current state of things, some people think that everything is fine while others think that this is shaping out to be the worse of times. The truth is probably somewhere in the middle, but even the most studied political analyst does not have the full picture. I doubt if anyone has the full picture.
Vision is a word that is often used when talking in the corporate world. Visionaries are always respected people that have a clear view of the road ahead. What happens when that visionary is looking down the wrong road?
I would argue that when it comes to driving I have never been lost, just learning new roads. I know Chicago probably a lot better than people that have lived there all of their lives, I am getting to know know Kansas city little by little. When I do go somewhere I am not afraid of using my GPS to get there. I am also not beyond stopping and asking for directions when I am not getting to where I need to go.
The first time I went back to Colombia as an adult I grew up a lot more. I got to see what I left behind and how some decisions affects more than one life. I think what impacted me the most is how we see things so differently when we are older. I always thought growing up that I knew everything and then getting older and wiser was something very gradual. That trip taught me that single situations can change the course of your life or change your view on things. One second can change a life.
Change is a good thing, but it is even better when it is done when everyone affected by that change are taken into account. As the politics of this country keep on moving forward to the upcoming election we have to see who is promising change, and if that is the direction that we want to go.
