So, I’m not surprised by the words that Mr. Trump spoke. Because, for seventy years, he has held his head high and looked down on anyone who wasn’t him. And this is why he can’t understand that people are the same. Every last one of us. We have our own basic needs. We love our families, we care about our friends, we want to live in peace, with a fair wage, and dreams to succeed.
We don’t have that now. Instead, we have a President ready to take from our children to build more weapons, ready to cast those in most need aside to earn another dollar for the wealthiest in our country. We have a Congress ready to follow blindly, to place party over people and profit over patriotism.
I know in my heart that every time our country strikes in vengeance, rather than reaches out in friendship, that our goals of safety slide farther out of reach.
