sweet home alabama

State seal of Alabama
except for a twist of fate
my wife she and i would have moved to alabama
specifically near fair hope and gulf shores alabama
when i finished my resdiency

i owed the federal government three years in an undeserved area
since they helped finance my medical education

one of the approved sites was near gulf shores
a place we had been going to for several years for our vacations

our friends greg and susan first introduced us to the area
we fell in love with it

the person who was working at the federal site decided
that they wanted to stay another tour there
if they hadnt made that decision
we likely would be living there today
we would have voted in the alabama senatorial election yesterday

there is a time in politics
when folks have to do whats right
throw their politics aside

thats what happened yesterday
when moore lost the election

these two groups stepped up to do what was right
for our country

the people of color especially black alabamians
republicans like senator richard shelby who refused to vote for the nominee
but instead like 20,000+ decided to write in another candidate
which was really a vote against moore

how embarrassing it would have been to have him moore
as your senator

alabama should be proud
like they are for their football teams
that they did what was right

it was time for alabama to make that next step
to rid some of the shackles of their past

history will always look down on them with praise
for standing up to do what was right

its almost as if there has been some clearing of the air
so that most in politics will reach a civil point
where maybe there will be some working together to get
done what needs to be done
tax reform
less national debt
less racial discord
more civility
immigration reform
things that matter to all of us
no matter what are political beliefs are
granted its all being forced on the politicians

thank you alabama
sweet home alabama
