Pray for our country, government, leaders ("I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, in order that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity." 1 Tim. 2:1-2)
I prefer to forge my own path and do what I know is right. It may not be to the liking of other people, but I think that if I don't do it then a bigger wrong is done. I learned from those who were decent and kind, and I learned from the assholes who were the real problem.
