Words of Inspiration in a Time of Darkness

The growing rates of depression, substance abuse, cynicism, lack of faith – in our leaders, in our courts, in our elections, in God Himself – tell a chilling story of our times.
But as we enter the Season of Hope, Joy and Love, let us remember that, as the Burt Bacharach song reminds us,

“The world is a circle without a beginning and nobody knows where it really ends. Everything depends on where you are in the circle that’s spinning around; half of the time we are upside down.”

Where we are as a nation may currently be upside down on the circle. But the good news is the circle keeps spinning.


As author G. Michael Hopf penned,

“Hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men, and weak men create hard times.”

If we are now living through hard times, we can rejoice as we see strong men ‘and women’ emerging in larger and larger numbers every day.

With that in mind, we offer the inspiration of these words:

“O, do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men!

Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks!

Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle. But you shall be a miracle.

Every day you shall wonder at yourself, at the richness of life which has come to you by the grace of God.”

~ Phillips Brooks


Over the last 13 years, EIPCa has been blessed with miracle volunteers who have shown themselves to be strong and equal to accomplishing miracles.

Tomorrow is Giving Tuesday.

EIPCa humbly asks you to feed the miracle by donating to the great work before us as we move forward with our ground-breaking lawsuits.

Hang on tightly as the circle spins us upward to our goal of Constitutionally protected elections that are fair, honest, transparent, and provably valid.

The greatest miracles are yet to come, with your support.
