Paying Close Attention to the 2016 Presidential Election Not So Much; Too Soon Enjoy the Beach!!!
I reiterate my unsolicited advice about the 2016 Presidential campaign noise. Forget about the polls, shake-ups, resets, cash-raised, etc., etc., until after Labor Day. It’s all mostly noise at this stage.
However, that doesn’t mean you should forget about the critically important policy issues that we face as a nation. There is much work to be done to foster the common good and build compassion and justice. I encourage reading the 2-page introductory note from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops document on political responsibility: Faithful Citizenship. The document provides good background, and lists the major issues we face as a nation. They are issues worth thinking and praying about. Much is at stake.
When fall comes, and the leaves change colors, we can turn to all the rest. Those things will begin to matter more, and be informative – somewhat. For now, enjoy the rest of your summer.
