This is a repost of my final Magnificent 7 article at Da Tech Guy: Giving Thanks For Two Years At Da Tech Guy Blog
By A.P. Dillon
It’s been just over two years since I joined Da Tech Guy’s Magnificent 7 team and I can barely believe how fast the time went. I’ve written an article a week on topic ranging from exposing far left networks to Obamacare and Common Core to key political races.
The time has flown, indeed.
Looking back at my previous Thanksgiving articles from 2013 and 2014, both are just as relevant this year as they were when I wrote them. Perhaps even more so as we watch the Special Snowflake Olympics unfolding in campuses across the nation and an agency within our federal government has gotten into the business of dictating where students can and cannot go pee.
Back in the day and over the course of history in many places, people often sought refuge from the woes of everyday life by going to the movies. However, even that refuge has been taken away to an increasing degree with celebrities on political soap boxes and films weaving in various politically correct themes instead of actual plot lines.
Social media is littered with half-baked narratives, political leaders trash each other and the public, television has become a modern outlet for newspeak and even our schools are substituting social justice over actual academics at an alarming rate.
Where does one turn to for refuge these days?
The home. That’s where you find it. The home is the first and original refuge.
The home is more than just a refuge, though — it’s where lives are created, fostered and nurtured. The home should be defended, honored and respected. The home is the family. The home and the family are what we all should be giving Thanks for every single year.
The home and family extend beyond our own more often than not. Most of us probably don’t realize that or see it in that light.
Well, I do.
I give thanks for my own home and family, but also for the one I found here at Da Tech Guy. I give thanks to Peter Ingemi for taking a chance on me two years ago and for the collection of people he brought together as his Magnificent 7. I will always be your Bernardo – wanted for crimes against Liberalism, Peter.
It has been a privilege to be a part of this refuge and I humbly thank everyone who has read or inspired my columns here at Da Tech Guy over the years.
God Bless and be Thankful.
