Faith

Faith

He put his hand in the fire.

“Damn!”  He screamed.  “It happened again.  That’s just not fair.  It happens every time.”

But the current administration is working on the problem.  Laws are being passed.  Decrees have been promulgated.  Study groups have been formed. Focus groups are being studied.  Poll results are being manipulated, as we speak.

The fire will be tamed.  Its terrorist elements totally eliminated.  Democracy will be instituted under leaders we approve.  You have to have faith.  Reason will not bring us the results we want.

Have faith!  Stay the course.  Don’t give in to terror.

He put his hand in the fire again.

“Damn!”
