Day 2 - We need an adult (pt.1)

Today I wish to think about the difference between adults and children.  Children are impulsive beings trapped inside their own selfish worldview unable to think outside their immediate needs and wants.  That is OK.  They are children and that is what children are.

The process of becoming an adult, among other things, one overcomes the shortsightedness of childhood and accepts that there exist multitudes of competing perspectives in the world.  As we age, ideally we continue reassessing the size of the world and our place within it - gaining wisdom in the process.

My vote this presidential election will go to the candidate or party who acts like an adult.  This will prove to be  much more difficult than one would expect considering that they are competing for the office of the most powerful man in the world.  With accusations of "wars" on various people, places, and things spewing anew every day it seems like this election season is unfortunately stuck on the playground.
