My daughter Leah is having Vision problems, she has near perfect eyesight, but a vision problem. Dealing with this situation over the last couple of weeks has been an eye opening experience for me. I can relate what we are going through in this personal situation to the most historical Presidential election this country has seen thus far. I have stayed away from the television and radio because I know that what I see and hear can cloud my vision.
I am taking this election VERY seriously and have lost sleep over whether or not I've educated myself enough on the facts and values that I hold dear and to which candidate I can align myself with. Do you understand what I mean? Here's what I've done. I have 3-4 legislations that I've been following over the years and researched (reviewed voting records & footage of debates,forums & interviews) what direction the next President will steer them. I've taken a few hot topic values and created a chart and tallied up the positions of each candidate to see who is most like me and my perspective of not just the Headlining News topics of the day, but the issues that will have a long lasting impact on future generations. (you see this is the accountant in me)
Read the following statements from the perspective of voting for elected officials:
Behavioral optometrists differentiate between the terms “sight” and “vision”. “Sight” is the ability to see and the eye’s response to light shining into it. “Vision” is the ability to interpret and understand information that comes through the eyes.
