Somewhere In The Middle
In the fall semester of 2004, I found myself in an English Literature course, but not always discussing strictly literature. It being an election year, political opinions came up quite often. I'll never forget the conclusion our class came to as a whole - No matter what the parties say, no matter who winds up in the White House, and no matter how many fanatical movements pop up, the majority of people and their opinions lie somewhere in the middle. We categorize everything in our lives, from our healthcare methods to our houses to our politics. Why? Why do I have to be labeled as a republican or a democrat, upper-class or lower-class, and conventional medicine or natural health? The truth is sometimes I'm both. Most of us are closer to moderation than anything else. Why? Because that's where the reason and healthy perspective is.
