As I was wandering some Atlanta streets, I noticed something odd.
First, on the top of a retaining wall near the sidewalk was a small handmade cross.
I noticed it and wondered, what sadness does this represent. Then, just a few feet later, I saw an alcohol bottle and a toppled over flag.
After fixing the flag, I joked, “I wonder what this is all about? Maybe somebody’s hopes and dreams died here.”
Then I looked up and kept walking. Just a few more feet from there, I saw a political campaign house.
I couldn’t help but laugh at the irony of my dying hopes and dreams comment when I saw a campaign house. And the irony of a tech company’s truck in front of “Hillary’s” house considering all the hub bub on server and email scandals.
Not that I am against or for Hillary, but this political season has certainly been odd and embarrassing for America at times. This odd scene made me want to find a Trump house too, so I could be equal and fair in my oddball challenge submission…but I could not.
So, take it from this undecided, do-not-claim-any-party voter, I think my view of American politics has sunk a little this year. In the past, I always picked who I liked and believed the most.
This year is odd indeed as the choices seems to be: who do you dislike the least? who is less embarrassing? who is capable? who is honest?
I can’t answer those questions. Nor will I give you my opinions…cuz I am a bit baffled frankly. So, I will leave it as a mere oddball challenge submission and not a political statement.
