Politicians, Farmers, Law Enforcement, Etc.

Things may not always be what they seem.

Politicians, Farmers, Law Enforcement, Etc.
McKenna Marshall

Person 1: "Psst. Hey. Did you hear about the most recent scandal in Congress?"

Person 2: "Yeah, I can't stand politicians."

Every day, we hear of corrupt people in various career fields. Corruption outweighs the good, yes? What if I told you that good things are happening around you everyday.

They are chosen by the people, for the people. They make difficult decisions each day that will impact thousands upon thousands of lives. They try to appease their party and the citizens. They have rumors spread about them everyday, but they fight on regardless. The good they do sometimes goes unnoticed, but one mistake they make will define them for the rest of their lives.

They are politicians.

They wake up and start working before the sun comes up. They get into the house after the sun goes down. They work holidays, weekends and everything in between. They work outside in winter's biting cold and summer's scorching heat. They take vacations rarely. They work for the benefit of society, but their work mostly goes unnoticed. However, they do not give up. They do not waiver in their resolve to care for others, the land and the animals. They often skip meals or lose sleep.

They are farmers.

They protect. They serve. They work long shifts. They are kind but can be stern. They work in all weather. They work a respectable job, but don’t always get the respect they deserve. They risk their lives for fathers, mothers and children. They cannot promise their families that they will return home safely. They do not know what they will run into from one day to the next.

They are law enforcement.

I could say similar things about countless other careers. Understand that I am not urging you to ignore the bad and only talk about the good in our lives. There is a time and place to talk about each. However, I do think it is important to share stories of positivity with others. We must not write off a whole group of people on account of a few bad apples in the bunch.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
