With our nation in dire distress — what with this terrible virus which has taken lives, crippled people, kept families from being with sick loved ones, shut down businesses and destroyed livelihoods of men and women who have worked all their lives to provide for their families, allowed riots and looting with killings daily not only of citizens but of dedicated law enforcement personnel, and doctors and nurses bone-weary from taking care of patients — and on and on the devastation of a proud nation goes.

Along with these heartbreaking facts, is a terrible knowledge that people are hungry; little children are not getting food or the education they need. Our churches are being shut down. And yet, millions and millions of dollars are spent on TV ads, media ads, newspaper ads and postal ads by politicians greedy to be elected into one position or another.

Just imagine how many people could be helped and hungry children fed with the money that these politicians spend on pulling their opponents down, and that is all that I have witnessed in these senseless ads.

If the people who support these politicians would contribute that money toward the good that is so badly needed in our world, just think what a beautiful world we all would enjoy.
