Healthy and Wise?

The ruling handed down by the Supreme Court in the Affordable Care Act made me stand still for a second, wondering if I were in another universe. Our system has become so bankrupt in a caring way, that the cynic in me felt the court would throw out Obamacare for political
favor. How else could George Bush’s first term have happened?
And yet, here they were, split but thoughtful. And John Roberts leading the way to find something for this law to stand on. Perhaps a three-legged stool, but still a foundation.
Because of Chief Justice Roberts we will now be healthy or healthier due to his wisdon. He was not my hero before, but today I find a spot for him in my pantheon of those to be admired.

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
