Against All Odds

My brother in law is fighting an uphill battle. A political contest in an unfair electoral system. With backstabbing former alliances and very limited funds. All in a community where he has been working for at least 10 years.

It’s a just cause. And very likely a lost cause. But he’s there. Vocation, craziness or weird career choice. All three would be my guess.

I’m not into sports, yet Ted Lasso’s it’s the hope that kills you vs do you believe in miracles? plot line connected with my electoral history. A very long losing streak with a pendulum of both these extremes.

I believe in hope. I believe in putting in the work. I believe in Chola. This won’t likely be the year — but he’s building something important that will make a big difference someday. He’s also learning a ton.

And where his tireless intensity drives me crazy sometimes, it’s also a big part of his future triumph.
