Wisdom on Wednesdays—The lesser of three evils

Self Portrait, 1911, charcoal sketch

“I stood in the polling booth without an idea of which way to swing the election. In my uncertainty I said a Lord’s Prayer, wondering if there was unconscious irony in the act, and cast my vote for Coolidge!  The faces of Davis and Bryan both are repugnant to me.  Lafollette, I thought, should not fool with the Supreme Court, and although I cannot say much for Coolidge’s face, I felt that being an Eastern man he was probably the lesser of three evils.”  (Tuesday, November 3, 1924)

  1. Thanks for this beautiful reminder that we pray and talk to the Father before important events in our lives. I cannot say how much I love this reflection of granddaddy. Imagine saying the Lords prayer before you vote? In our uncertainty we seek solace and guidance as we seek His peace in our decision.
