A subtle shift in thinking is taking place. People are waking up and seeing their reality from a new and different perspective. Those who at first saw the restrictions of our government as reasonable and even defended their implementation now realize a change of direction is needed. While there is some wisdom regarding the initial government requests for public health and safety, those requests have become demands that are over-reaching and restrictive beyond the reason of law, science, and personal liberty.
Yesterday, I sensed the tide turning in my home state of Oregon and specifically in the southern part of the state where Jan and I live. I see the groundswell of a new reality coming to the surface. People are saying “enough.” This is not about rebellion or having a rebellious mindset against authority. It is merely saying people can make wise decisions in concert with our government, not be dictated to and controlled like an immature child.
There are times when we can no longer allow unwise agendas to remain in place unquestioned and unchallenged. This is more than demanding our rights. It is about loving our neighbors as ourselves.
