Post Secret

I took a break from writing and checked out Post Secret, something I usually save for Monday mornings. Someone sent in this secret:

and someone emailed the following comment:

That is my greatest fear. I hope that you're fearing it too, and that that's a concern you wrote about, and not a threat...

I agree with the person that sent in the email comment. I know a lot of people are still undecided about the candidates. For many it's going to come down to, for lack of better term, "the lesser of two evils."

However, I also think it's important to look at the VP candidates. John McCain is older, he's suffered through a lot and you can see the toll just the campaign has taken on him as well as Barack Obama. You hear that McCain could have his cancer come back, he could suffer some other illness, who really knows? Depending on the sender's intent of their secret, I think Barack Obama could unfortunately suffer a tragedy just like the men pictured on the postcard. It's sad that in 2008 there are many people who do not believe an individual is qualified or even worthy to be president of our country just because of the color of their skin. It's even worse to think that there are some that would even consider attempting to assassinate that individual. Have we still not come very far as a society?
