The first posting of FRobertsWorld commentaries started on April 5, 2008 with a piece titled “Sportsmanship Is Dead,” and since then a wide variety of subjects have been addressed. All too frequently politics and governance have drawn my interests and comments, but lately I have been making a determined effort to present a wider range of subjects with personal analysis.
My valued Editor brought the following quote from Founding Father John Quincy Adams to my attention this morning, and it is most appropriate to share with you at this particular time. An interesting aside is the fact that the quote was found inside the pages of the USA Today’s Sports section.
“AWAYS VOTE FOR PRINCIPLE, THOUGH YOU MAY VOTE ALONE, AND YOU MAY CHERISH THE SWEETEST REFLECTION THAT YOUR VOTE IS NEVER LOST”.
I can only hope that an increasing number of fellow American’s carry that thought into the voting booth on November 2, 2010, because with the quality and substance of those words our future can be assured.
