Liberty and Power!

Power Quote for the Week

Welcome to Sunday's regular feature. Every week you can look for a witty, wise, or profound quotation from assorted folks about power.

I choose these quotations about power as it refers to electricity, since that is what this blog is about. Sometimes though, I'll select a quotation about power, as it relates to the human condition.

William Hazlitt (10 April 1778 – 18 September 1830) was an English writer, remembered for his humanistic essays and literary criticism, and as a grammarian and philosopher. He said, "The love of liberty is the love of others; the love of power is the love of ourselves."

It is unfortunate that so many of our public servants fit the later, rather than the former. It really is time to put a stop to it!

Father's Day!

Father's Day! A day we honor our dads. I hope your dad was a wonderful man and father. My dad loved all of us and was a pretty good dad.

Dads are supposed to be head of the household leader and protector.

What is it about most dads? They are either exceptional or lousy. Very few fall in the mediocre category. There are times when I look back over my own life as a father and think I must be exceptional for the love, patience and guidance I have given to my children. Then there are times when I examine my life in detail and the reality sets in and I say to myself, "I must be a lousy father". When all is said and done only my children can vouch for my character, be it good or lacking. All I know is that I love each and every one of them and would gladly give my life to save theirs.

Leave it to say, my father and I had issues. I loved him very much, but I did not like a lot of things he did. The last few years of his life he lived in a nursing home and I rarely visited him. He died 31 days after my mother was taken by pancreatic cancer seven years ago. He and I never really cleared the air between us, it was sort of a mutual understanding not to really discuss it. I know he loved me, my brother and sister, but he marched to his own beat.

Life is pretty messy sometimes and our parents in most ways either provide a positive or negative approach that we as young adults will either emulate or rebel against.

Dad's you set the living life standards for the family. You are to heed your wife's council and be fair and just. If you don't your family will pay the consequences. BE a parent and take responsibility for yourself and your children's actions.

Being Powerless is agonizing! Most parents at one time or another do experience this.

Powerless to do something for another is heartbreaking.

When your child is in pain and there is nothing you can do to ease it or relieve it you get that horrible feeling of being powerless. My wife and I have had that sensation too many times in our lives and are going through it again. You call your family Dr. (and several others) and can't reach him, leaving a voice mail to please call you as soon as possible. You do not go to the emergency anymore, for you know nothing will be done for hours, if at all (been there and added to the frustration and expense). Somehow in the end we all survive and learn something along the way. We also learn that one can never be prepared for all situations in life.

In cases where pain, and powerless to change it occur, remain calm, use common sense and be persistent until the situation is resolved. This too shall pass.
