I Need It To Be Worth It

“Congressman, you’re going to be facing an uphill battle trying to get this environmental bill passed given the opposition to it coming from the other party. How are you planning to do it?” The reporter asked.

“I am hoping that there are a few members on the other side of the aisle who understand the long term stakes of doing nothing,” the congressman said. “I think I may be able to twist a few arms.”

“It certainly won’t be easy, Congressman, to break what up to now has been a united front,” the reporter said.

The congressman gave the reporter a happy nod. “I don’t need it to be easy,” he said. “I need it to be worth it.”

Written for Athling2001’s The JSW Prompt, where the challenge is to write a post including this sentence: “I don’t need it to be easy, I need it to be worth it.” Also for Misky’s Twiglet, where the phrase is “happy nod.”

    I agree. If only we had more politicians willing to do what is worth doing and not just what is easy. Thanks for joining in.
