Politicians

Ask a small child what she or he wants to be when they grow up and you’re likely to hear fireman, policeman, doctor, nurse, teacher or maybe even a lawyer.  What I find interesting is that these noble choices are all professions intended to serve others.

I don’t know that I have ever heard a child say, “When I grow up, I want to be a politician.”  If I did, I would probably have serious doubts about the kid.  Why is that?  In actuality, the role of a politician should be to serve others.  In reality, all too often the opposite occurs.
