Faith. It's the only thing that gets me out of bed in the morning and it has taken quite a beating lately. Seems there are a huge contingent that don't like us to keep it. Faith in God, faith in our fellow man, faith in those strange foreigners that seem to hate us. Faith has been down on the ground getting the shit kicked out of it for quite some time now. But it's still there. Sure, I'm one of those mutt people you describe that will probably never get a leg up. I'll never have to worry about managing a trust fund. Never have that McMansion on the hill. I've lived all of my 42 years working every day knowing that it will only bring enough to get me to the next day of more of the same.
