Letter: All I can do in these interesting times is watch, vote and pray

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Cars line up to drops off their ballot at the drop-off location in Lehi, on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020.

There is an ancient Chinese curse that says, “May you live in interesting times.” Well we sure do live in interesting times, don’t we ?

Let’s recap: We got Donald Trump and his circus show, Vladimir Putin and his war in Ukraine, Joe Biden and the progressives trying to spend money we don’t have, a global pandemic that is still raging and now rumors of Roe v. Wade being overturned.

Not much I can do as a normal citizen, other than cast my vote. I just sit back and eat some popcorn and watch people lose their minds.

I mutter the serenity prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

David T. Lancaster, Murray
