A long time ago, many years ago in fact, I was the "hit" in a hit and run

Last edited Thu Dec 19, 2019, 12:56 AM - Edit history (1)

It hurt physically, sure, but what really left a scar was that I was considered that much of a "nothing" in someone else's eyes that they could just strike me with their car and keep going to do something that really mattered I guess.

But you know what I never did?

I never compared what happened to me to what Jesus went through.

So I just hope anyone reading this right here remembers this post right here when they accuse Democrats or the left of creating a "culture of victimhood" or relying on feelings instead of facts.

You are not "nothing." You are a person, important to those who love and know you.

Thank you for your thoughtful post.
