To All Humans, Americans, Politicians.
While we make law, shouldn’t we think of our grandkids ?
Our grandkids are our legacy. You can take that as far as you wish, but you should consider them. Most of us are concerned with the day to day of life. Politicians can serve as best as public servants when appropriate by considering the impact of laws that they make on our/their grandchildren.
As a Scouter, our motto seems to be ‘It’s all about the kids’. As politicians, while you serve your constituents, at least theoretically, perhaps you should be thinking, ‘It’s all about the grandkids’.
Walt Kelly said “I have met the enemy, and he is us”.
While making law that could affect our grandchildren, politicians may actually make ‘good’ law and remove ‘bad’ law. Then we could be happier with our politicians. I hope to provide for the definitions of good and bad law in a future post or perhaps a modification of this posts. Perhaps after returning from taking my youngest son home from ‘The Mikado’.
As our founding fathers said in the Declaration of Independence ‘Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness’.
