Not the Place for Politics.

The big Washington bullies should leave Bristol Palin alone. The big Washington bullies should leave Sasha and Malia Obama alone, too.

I am not apolitical. I have many political opinions, and I refuse to discuss the majority of them here because this blog is not about politics. However, the children of candidates are not a partisan issue. They are not a bipartisan issue. They are children, trying to make good choices in the face of paparazzi and unimaginable media scrutiny.

These children do not create nor do they enact policies of any kind. They are young ladies who are trying to lead normal lives in a frenzied media circus where everything is being picked apart by the appallingly venomous ways of the politico.

They didn't ask for this. I pray for them. You should too.

Amen from me too. Lauren I had a wonderful day in the Lord today and some boldness that is new to me. I wanted to share it with you so when you have sometime click on my blog and read about it. Also I'll be in Chicago when you are speaking in September with another walk couple. We'll be praying for you and everyone on the walk.

I couldn't have said it better myself.

I was thinking about poor Bristol the other day. Thanks for the reminder to be praying for these children directly affected by the campaign.
