Quote Wednesday — Burke

“Society is indeed a contract…it becomes a partnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born.” — Edmund Burke

I’ve been watching the news lately… a very dangerous thing for me to do.  I have also been watching a lot of Daily Show and Colbert Report… and it just disgusts me.  The state of the political divide in this country is absolutely disgusting.  We’ve lost the ability to actual talk to each other about politics.  Now it’s all about how loud you can yell.  We have lost the idea that we are one country.  We have lost the past, present, and future.  And it makes me oh so sad.  We need to be always mindful of the next generation.  It is our legacy.
