Politically apathetic

I am politically apathetic.

I prefer this to being engaged in a political party whose leaders will deceive me, double-cross their ideals and sell their martyrs to the highest bidder... I prefer to be neutral than to be aggressive, to judge a person on their values not their religion or political affiliation... I would rather join prayers with anyone who believes in the future of this country in its plurality, than to curse my neighbor...

It has been a while since I listened to the news, or read any statement by the various politicians viiying for the position of president. It seems they have forgotten that they are pledging to serve their country and its citizens, not achieving personal fame. We are in for a tense week ahead, because the threat is everywhere, and everyone is a target.

In death, we are all equal, we will take our last breath and cross over, where we will be judged according to the amount of love in the actions we did. No one will remember our fame, our political affiliation, or the balance in our bank account.

Parents are now warning their children not to leave their home, to avoid public places, to limit their activities to the bare necessities... and they will not succeed in convincing them, because at the end of the day, we want to really live, not live from lack of death.

I am politically apathetic, but I believe in my country. I believe in my fellow country man/woman. I believe that good actions can make a difference. I believe that I have a future here. I believe that we will make it through with our humanity. And I believe we will maintain our hope, in the end.
