“I Would Be Remiss”

I attended my first political debate today for the mayor of University Heights. I arrived early and took a seat. After the debate began I quickly realized that I was in the wrong room. In the first 27 seconds of the debate there was no petty name calling, no sexist, racist or otherwise bigoted remarks. I therefore quickly and quietly made my way out of the room in search of the correct one.

Ultimately I was left the way I feel all debates should leave one: swayed, but still in need of research.

Over the course of the hour and a half long debate I did come to one major realization: no mater how civil a discourse, the phrase “I would be remiss” is the civil way of throwing a giant middle finger to your opponent.

I've traveled the world, but the exploration never ends. I've run marathons, but the race is far from over. I've completed life goals, but strive for more. I have questions with no answers, and answers to questions I've yet to ask.

Where are you going? Where have you been?
