Between a rock and a hard place

October 24, 2010

A small tree growing out of a crack in a large rock.

Wikipedia disambiguates the term “between a rock and a hard place” as a dilemma. The word “dilemma” has its roots in Greek, literally translated as “double proposition,” meaning a problem offering two solutions, neither of which is practically acceptable. Personally, I feel that way a lot when voting. Do you often dislike the dilemmas you face in voting?

When facing a dilemma, the greatest challenge can be a positive attitude. I chose the picture to the right because I felt it symbolized hope. This little sapling has taken root in the crevice between two boulders. How extraordinary that under the harshest conditions, life can still take root.

If you’re struggling to decide who to vote for in the upcoming elections, consider Jesus. Honestly, you can write in Jesus of Nazareth.
