I’ve spent the last year in pandemic world trying to enable one of the world’s largest used car sales companies to have better experiences and more efficient ways to buy and sell cars online – without leaving the comfort of your “home”.
In some ways, I might be tempted to think that I am doing something really cutting edge.. which is why I feel like I have just come up for air.
When those first big raindrops hit your face, and you know it’s all over! Trying to see the lights of the car in front of you, so you can stay on the road, barely able to breath because it was raining so hard and it felt like a swimming pool.
Watched #AlexanderHamilton for a second time with Bella.
After the second time (with captions) I picked up so much more of the story. #exceptionallydone
That said, couldn’t help but being emotionally stirred thinking of the idealism and the intentionality of the founding mothers and fathers to create a better world, and how quickly corruption took over in our governing class.
There is little room in my mind to question how ashamed they would be today, seeing the qualities that began to reign around self-centered, squabbling, and petty leadership; those who are corrupt, dishonest and drunk on power – feeding off of the souls of the people they were sworn to serve.
Even in the begining, when human nature began to take over our newly formed government, there appeared to be a level of constraint based on the rawness of the recent bloodshed, and some semblance of human decency.
It seems we have come such a far distance from “by the people and for the people”, I can almost understand how Jesus felt when he wept over Jerusalem: “Would that you, even you, had known on this day the things that make for peace!”
