Head to “Blogs I Follow” in the Reader. Scroll down to the third post in the list. Take the third sentence in the post, and work it into your own.


I have had a few epiphanies over the years; the biggest one is that life is all about perception. I have extended my epiphany to apply not only to belief systems, but to our legal systems, our government systems and economic systems as well. I firmly believe that everything takes on a new shade when seen this way. An excellent example is the ongoing debate on The Affordable Care Act, where the conservative right proclaims that this is another example of government tyranny where everyone must opt-in. On the other hand, there is no law prohibiting opt-out. The conservative right works very tirelessly to distract the public from paying attention to the issue that there are several ways to either be in compliance with the law or pay the penalty.  The real issue here is whether you believe that health care is a privilege or a right; depending on where you stand on the question is what  will color your perception of the debate. My perception is that health care is a right, along with life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.


This was my tired attempt with this prompt. I am feeling less than inspired today, perhaps because I am feeling so, so tired. Tomorrow will be a new day.
