The Elections are over and I'm glad. I had long grown weary of the ads, especially the attack ads. It is a bad sign when someone promotes themselves primarily because their opponent is worse. What was witnessed during those attack ads, I would call verbal and mental abusive behavior. At the Counseling Center, we remind folks that such abusive language may mean that the client is not far from physical violence and abuse if they don't learn to deal with their egos and anger. Whether or not your preference was elected (most of mine were) I hope that all of us will be praying for all of our elected officers so they can govern with the common good in mind rather than their egos, political party, personal political future hopes, etc.
