The Greatest Black Friday Ever

by Steve Popoola on November 28, 2016 in Biblepraise

The Friday following Thanksgiving Day in the United States is labelled Black Friday.  It heralds the beginning of the Christmas shopping season and it is characterized by significant reduction in the prizes of consumer items, thus causing a spike in sales as shoppers take advantage of the low prizes.

This practice has gained popularity in other countries like the United Kingdom where it was reported that about £2M in revenue was made every minute.

Black Friday is over now and there are many who are still basking in the euphoria of being able to purchase items at a fraction of the price, while others are already planning to sell what they bought as they are no longer sure whether they really needed the items in the first place.

For several months, we have witnessed what has been regarded as one of the nastiest presidential campaigns in the United States of America. Not many people would remember all the campaign promises made by Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump but many would remember the personal insults traded by both camps and their supporters.

After all said and done, one person will win and become the next President but I wonder at what cost the election will be won?

Making a choice to elect a leader has always been an issue even from Biblical times. It is easy to make the choice but do people always elect the right person into office and what are the consequences of making a wrong choice?
