A Candidate With Integrity

So many Presidential hopefuls tossed their hats in the ring a few months ago, but, one by one, they have been pushed aside with only a few left standing. The field has been narrowed and soon we will know the identity of the candidate each party will nominate.

I believe it's important for individuals to exercise the right to vote. The chances are looking slim, however, for there to be a candidate worthy of a vote. I prefer to cast my vote for a person of integrity who inspires my trust and confidence. I hope such a person's name will be on the ballot.

In following the various campaigns, I have been reminded of my granddaughter's first school. When she started kindergarten in Arlington, Texas, she went to a school called Children's University. I loved the school for many reasons, one of them being the live animals on-site. The animals had appropriate living and roaming quarters, and the youngsters enjoyed seeing and learning about them. Every year, the students chose from among the animals and voted for a new President for the school. That process, of course, was a learning experience in itself.

In thinking back on the animals at the school, I believe the donkey, the goat, the pony, and the llama were some of the most well-liked. If it's not too late, perhaps we could get one of them nominated to run in our Presidential election. After all, these animals have years of political experience. I've seen some of the current candidates exhibit much worse behavior than these gentle animals have shown. This might improve our pool of candidates for the Presidential election looming ahead. I, for one, have a lot of confidence in the llama.

We could do worse.
