‘To see the men without clothes to cover their nakedness ….’
You want hard? Try this? What happened to you? Did you lose a Senate race, or break a nail on your friggin’ keyboard?
Get. Over. It.
As I said to a good friend tonight, everyone gets a chance to fight and the battles aren’t always chosen and are rarely fully defined by us. You take up the task at hand and give it your all knowing others have given more to more daunting ones. That’s the definition of a patriot.
“To see the men without clothes to cover their nakedness, without blankets to lie upon, without shoes…without a house or hut to cover them until those could be built, and submitting without a murmur, is a proof of patience and obedience which, in my opinion, can scarcely be paralleled.”
George Washington at Valley Forge, April 21, 1778
