Once upon a time there was a woman who had ten children. Each child was unique as children are, but to their mother each was exceptional. That didn’t give any child the right to bully. Their exceptionalism did not mean that the mother was pleased with her children.
I am willing to concede that America is exceptional, but that doesn’t give it an excuse to bully. China, Russia and all other nations of the world are exceptional in their own ways.
A mother loves her children though she is not always pleased with them. God loves the world, but is not always pleased with it. These are some of the Old Fool’s thoughts at the end of an exciting fourth of July.
