From the Pen of David Horowitz: November 15, 2009

November 15, 2009


Glazov: Tell us in what ways Sarah was a remarkable human being.
Horowitz: Well, she faced physical barriers that would have daunted and depressed most of us, and that eventually killed her. But she not only soldiered on, but did so with an attitude that was hopeful and generous and compassionate and truly inspiring. She could not drive and had a very poor sense of direction, but she traveled across town to feed the homeless. She was a vegetarian, but schooled herself in how to cook meat because that was what the homeless people wanted, and she felt she was there to serve them. Though she, with tremendous handicaps, without complaint, and without making herself a burden on others, she still showed compassion for people who were unable to do the same.

    One should never read motives into another’s charity, as the reading is subjective and often inadequate or wrong. That said we can and should take inspiration from another’s kind works. One of my favourite lines is the answer to a question, and I don’t know its progeny. The question: Do you believe in God? The answer: Sometimes when I listen to music. This kind of generosity in the discordant hustle and clatter of daily life is sweet music, indeed.

    Sarah Palin has been a breath of fresh air to the conservative movement in this country. The political elitists that abound in both aprties have forgotten that we are a representative republic and they have tuned out from all of the protest meeting across this country.
    The arrogance displyued by members of the congress really astounded me since I had called and written to many members from both aisles of the congress. The presumption that they know much better than the citizenry what is good for this country is astounding and they showed their true colors by ignoring every one starting with the president!
    I, for one, beleive that when Sarah feels she is ready to compete in the national arena she will show herself to be the responsible, honest and purposeful person that she is and the people from both parties as well as independents will support her. The American people are dying for true leadership that brings integrity and honesty into the political arena which has been sorely lacking for too long.

      Interesting remarks, but I believe the “Sarah” being referred to by David Horowitz was his deceased daughter, Sarah, who suffered serious disabilities. So the remarks about Sarah Palin, while interesting, are off beam in this blog.
