One-Liner Wednesday: More At Stake


Unity Dove in Alcohol Ink by Joanna of the Forest

“But, you know, there’s more at stake than our party and our political fortunes in this moment. If we lose faith in the Constitution, we won’t just lose elections. We’ll lose our country.” Mike Pence

While I don’t agree with Mike Pence on many things, I admire his courage in regard to this statement and his role on January 6. I am always drawn to stories where people struggle with good and evil, light and darkness, trying to figure out the right thing to do in complicated situations, and where someone has the courage to step outside the box or beyond party lines. It reminds me of when Darth Vader turned and saved his son from the emperor because there was still good in him.

In reality, things are rarely so clear. There are a lot of colors between black and white. There are even a lot of colors between red and blue.

One Liner Wednesday is brought to you by our host, Linda G. Hill.

  1. Nice one-liner, JoAnna and that’s a beautiful drawing (I apologize if that’s the wrong term to use).

  2. Wow! Beautiful in every way!

  3. I’m not a Pence fan, but it must’ve taken a lot of courage for him to take such a stance.

  4. Now that is a surprisingly sensible statement from him. Well done for featuring it.

  5. Thank you for sharing!!… love the picture!.. unfortunately there are many in today’s world societies that are closed Ray Stevens said “there is none so blind as he who will not see”… hopefully one day wisdom will reign and everyone will accept one as who they are and believe.. 🙂

    Until we meet again..
    May flowers always line your path
    and sunshine light your way,
    May songbirds serenade your
    every step along the way,
    May a rainbow run beside you
    in a sky that’s always blue,
    And may happiness fill your heart
    each day your whole life through.
    (Irish Saying)

  6. Yes, this was one of Pence’s shining moments.
