January 16, 2019-
I am looking at a photo of a well-known person, who is pregnant for the third time. It’s said that there are many who are “urgently concerned” about her health, given ” a state of morbid obesity”. That is good of these people, as it could very well be a health risk-for mother and child. I regard her very dearly, and pray for the successful births of her child and for those of two other women I know.
A skilled and intelligent woman, of whom I have long had a high opinion, is running for President, in next year’s election. At this stage of the game, it is hard to see how things will turn out. Yet, already, those who are fearful that she might meet with success are questioning her intelligence, because “no one that pretty could possibly be smart enough to be leader of the Free World.” Of course! Such individuals give away their game, without so much as a shred of evidence in their favour. Suffice it say, this woman has more leadership ability in her right thumb than a dozen pundits have, in their twelve collective bodies.
Status changes, often on a daily basis, in both real time and on social media. The key to making that change go in a positive direction is consistency, in both fairness of judgment and steadiness in values. Open-mindedness gets in there, somewhere. Being wishy-washy, does not.
Thus, the two women mentioned above could easily return to society’s good graces, and leave pariah status in the dust, just by remaining who they are, in their innermost hearts. I find it sad that, in this day and age, social fickleness still seems to reign, if not supreme, then at a rather meagerly-challenged level.
