Don’t bet against America

Some days, I read and watch too much news.

Or stand and talk too long to some crotchety, old man bellowing about how things used to be.

Or maybe I sit and reflect unnecessarily on how our political parties have brewed hatred, hatched controversy, and ripped us apart as a country.

And on the days that I do too much of any of these things, I begin to worry.

But then I come across a video like the one below. And I see how amazing we are as a country. And I remember how we always pull together and form a united front when we’re attacked or forced to confront a problem.

And that’s when I take a deep breath and smile. And I’m betting that you’ll do the same, if you’ll ignore the news, the crotchety old man, and your own anger at the opposing party for just a few mins as you watch the video below.

Watch what happens when three random people (who don’t even know each other) cross paths and create some pretty serious magic…

(Besides the national security/future of America point, there’s also a lesson in dreaming and relaxing in this video. There are literally people trying to track down these guys for a possible record deal. So, stop thinking you can’t — or stop planning so much — and loosen up, relax, and make something happen!)

P.S. If you enjoy fast-paced books, you just might like my works. “Sold Out” tracks the life of a legendary Marine Sniper after a CIA unit decides to kill him for reasons of national security. “Little Man, and the Dixon County War” tells the uphill fight a young deputy faces after surviving three years of war only to find himself in the sights of a mighty cattle baron. And “Soldier On,” a short novel, follows the lives of several German soldiers in a depleted infantry company trying to make it through the final, miserable months of World War II.

  1. I saw this. It was fantastic. These were people who were all different, and might not have even known each other, but still made beautiful noise together. I loved it.

    Sorry I vanished again… Feedly had gotten a wee bit too busy and I wasn’t reading anything for a while. I finally got rid of everything and I’m rebuilding it slowly.
