Where has time gone. Wow, we are really keeping busy. Things are good, but wanted to get you a quick update on the National Prayer Breakfast. More details will follow.
The 2013 National Prayer Breakfast has come and gone. We attended the event at the invitation of Congressman Burgess from Texas. We were honored to represent so many people.
The news has really been focusing on Dr. Benjamin Carson’s speech with President Obama sitting a few feet from him. There is and will be more commentary from the TV talking heads, but I can tell you from sitting there in the room. There are times where the actually feeling in the room is different than what is on TV.
Dr. Carson came across as very intelligent and well spoken. Dr. Carson came from a tough beginnings and rose to the top of his profession as a neurosurgeon. He has won numerous awards and other honors. His manner of speaking was not an attack, but more of ideas. People that are intelligent should be able to learn from others and take the pearls of wisdom to develop even better ideas.
The feeling in the room was a good feeling, one that shouldn’t be construed as attacks on the leadership in the room. I know that any intelligent politician can learn from others. When we say that we know everything is when we are doomed to mediocrity.
I spent time with Congressman Burgess and his staff, as well as Senator Rubio. One item I came away with was that these men want to improve their country. They want to help by listening to their constituents and bring about a better life for the citizens of this country.
It is nice for us to think that they are not in it only for self, but many make self sacrifices to serve their country. Can I say this is the attitude of all politicians? Of course not, but I did feel it at the prayer breakfast.
More to come, just a quick post.
