Balance and Justice
And so...while I am deeply concerned that we have a Conservative government, I can't allow that to bring me down and upset my equilibrium. At the risk of sounding clichéd, one has to look for the riches within and trust in the path, keeping balanced and focusing on the good stuff. There is a lot more to life than politics but fairness and justice are important principles and so, regardless of political persuasion, I pray that the elected government can find compassion in its heart for the ill, the disabled, the unemployed and those on low incomes. I was heartened to read this the other week:
