I hate watching returns. My stomach does flips and churns with every percentage point that goes up or down. But here I sit riveted to my chair, and my stomach is beginning to settle as it appears that Scott Brown will indeed hold a Massachusetts senate seat. Oh what a difference a month can make!
This reaffirms my belief that people are smart and are paying attention. It seems as though there really has been an awakening. The people are making their voices heard with their votes.
Congratulations to the people of Massachusetts for regaining the peoples’ seat and turning the tide, or at least stemming it. Brown may not be the answer to all of our prayers, but he’ll do for now.
It will be interesting to see the ripple effect this has on the rest of the Democratic Party and all those carrying a Progressive agenda. I predict more retirements. I’m just not sure those seeking re-election are ready to face informed voters and stomach the returns awaiting them in November.
JP calls the sunny beaches of Florida her first home, but now resides in beautiful, Music City, USA with her husband of 14 years. Most days consist of homeschooling her four children, juggling laundry, and keeping up with hungry appetites. However, JP insists that writing helps her maintain her sanity - well, that and her guitar.
In her spare time you might find JP singing at a coffee shop, playing guitar, commenting on current events, or capturing humorous slices of life through essay, poetry and song.
As a singer/songwriter JP writes from her own spiritual journey through prayer and Scripture study. She plans to release a collection of songs and an accompanying Songbook/Bible Study Guide this summer.
