Not Gonna Do It – A Declaration Before the Election

I unequivocally, completely, categorically refuse to take the bait.

I’m not gonna ridicule.
I’m not gonna scorn.
I’m not gonna assume.
And I’m not gonna mock.

Call it naive. Doesn’t matter.

It’s gonna be both.
Conviction and conversation.
Principle and humility.
Mouth and ears.

Life’s too short to be small.
Too eternal to be petty.
Too important to earn irrelevance.

People. All of ’em.
God’s fingerprint.
I refuse not to see it.

Think. Not react.

I’m not gonna hate the other side.
Either of ’em.
