The Best Moment of the Super Bowl = President and Mrs Bush
To me, the best moment at this year's Super Bowl was the coin toss, because Frmr President George H.W. Bush did something most politicians can't do...he brought us together in agreement. Here's how he did it...
Was he my favorite President? Nope. Not even close. Did I disagree with most of his decisions? Yup. And it wasn't until years later I appreciated his leadership. That's just the way of politics.
So, why do I think so much of the Coin Toss Moment? It reminded me we are one nation, and we can and do agree on a lot of stuff. And, most importantly, what we're experiencing now is not normal. It seems to be the result of years and years of amping up how we look at our team vs the other team. And it is keeping too many people from hearing each other.
But, in real life...members of the Patriots are friends with guys on the Falcons. They don't attack each other. Same with almost all teams.
And yesterday, on the field, most everyone felt something different when the former President and First Lady showed up. It seems we agreed in our respect for them. And to me, that's a good start.
All of this reminded me the majority of people here in the USA are good people...it's just the loud-mouth-dough-heads making the noise that make us think we can't get along. And we need to get along more now that ever.
Why? Because there are a lot of scared people...and when the rhetoric is hot, we gotta be able to be cool and clear headed. We can do it. We must do it.
