Secretariat and the USA

Wow! What a movie! What a horse!

Yesterday Stan (my husband) and I saw the movie Secretariat. I couldn’t wait to see the movie, and It occurred to me that the USA is a lot like Secretariat. Now I know it is rather odd to compare a country to a horse--but it works, and here’s how.

In 1776, right off the dime (thanks to our forefathers) we stood above the rest. After all, we had a strong constitution and we were track smart, knowing how to navigate those pesky turns and cagey jockeys, and royal know-it-alls. Yes, we kept on moving out of the starting gate, knowing that with a little maneuvering, and conserving our reserve we were going to be in the winner’s circle again and again-- a triple crown champion, envied by the world, instead of being ruled by the crown.

Like Secretariat, the USA is still moving in greatness, so let’s keep it that way and as citizens of our wonderful county vote our hearts and minds on November 2. Remember, throughout our land many races will be wire-to-wire and we would rather win by a nose than finish second.

The US is definitely moving forward in great progress - and sometimes it takes a movie to show us that. Great one.
