"Trust is like a mirror: You can fix it if it’s broken, but you can still see the crack in the reflection." - Lady Gaga
Already you are amazed that I would quote someone like Lady Gaga, well, so am I.
The Wagner Group & Reader’s Digest recently did a national survey. They wanted to know "The Most Trusted People in America." Results:
#1 Most trusted person in America - Tom Hanks! Yes indeed. A person that makes a living acting like other people. A person that has put millions behind liberal democratic causes - such as same sex marriage. Why is Tom Hanks #1? According to the analysts, because he has the right "face shape." Yep.
#2 Most trusted person in America - Sandra Bullock! Yes indeed. A great contributor to good causes, but refuses to use the word "God."
#3 Most trusted person in America is Denzel Washington! Yes indeed. Seeing a pattern here? We trust people who make a living acting like other people!? Denzel claims to be a Christian & is faithful to his church. He is also a large supporter of the Democratic party & causes.
#4 Most trusted person in America is Meryl Streep! Yes indeed. She claims to be spiritual, but avoids religion & doctrines. She has financially supported quite liberal causes
Out of the top 10 trusted people, 5 are actors, one is a talk show host - Alex Trebek.
There are some decent people on the list, but the 1st person associated with any faith is Billy Graham at #67!
(In fact, he is the only religious leader in the top 100, unless you want to include Tim Tebow at #40.) Oddly, Pres. Barak Obama beats Graham by being the #65 most trusted!?
Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen." That is the only place you can really put your full trust. I think America has a distorted sense of trust.
Trust me . . .
