Compared to these people, I am truly blessed

Every time I read something like this, I really have to offer up a thanks to the Lord. I invite you read this stuff below and follow the link. The stuff in this little report below, makes my ADHD seem so insignificant:

I could be like these guys. Thankfully, I am not.

At trial, the insanity defense generally hinges on a person’s inability to distinguish right from wrong or understand the “nature and quality” of his act. In the context of an impending execution, insanity means you cannot rationally comprehend that you are being put to death as a consequence of the crime you committed.

This is why you will never hear me ever complain about how bad I got it or that you should feel sorry for me. Because I could be in the shape of some of the people in that story above. I am truly blessed, and I have no reason to complain about my situation. Oh, sure, things could be better; but then again, things could be worse, much worse. I am truly thankful that I turned out like I did and am not any sort of thing like in that story.

It just puts things in perspective, it does for me anyhow.

About The American Patriot

Short Bio: I started blogging about politics in 2006, as a populist, skeptical left of center type, with a blog called simply, "The Populist." I suspect, but cannot prove; that my blog might have been hacked by some evil neoconservatives. I cannot prove that at all and also too, around the same time. Hackers from China where attacking wordpress blogs. I believe either the Neocons or the Chinese got my site. I don't know honestly know which. Either way, by 2007, I began to see that I really did not fit within the Democrat Party and liberal circles and after my blog was hacked; I created a blog called "Political Byline" and I kept writing; first as a Centrist and then as a Paleoconservative. For my long bio, see the "About Me" section on this blog.
