Not only did he win so many states, he won the popular vote. I don’t believe that equates to most people being piles of dog do though. I think during the primaries the DNC should have taken the people seriously that as a country we are tired of the corruption in Washington. So tired that most of the country, and across party lines, we would have came together to support Bernie Sanders and moved America forward to a more real prosperity. This outcome is a lesson in when we let our pride propel us into situations that we are either not ready for or God (or whatever you believe in) has not blessed us or opened that door for us. Not only do we have to wait on his timing but trust his discipline through our failures. I’m a patriot and I love this country. It’s time for us as Americans to unite and work together for not only today, but for the future we are leaving for our children. We the people are what make this country great. 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
I know this time of year we are busy wrapping up the school year, trying our best to get our lawns in shape, and working hard to clean out all the old junk in our homes. We are used to giving away old clothes, and out dated electronics in some cases too for all new upgrades. What about in our pantry? American’s over-consume a lot of things, but our waste of food seems to be the worst. I invite you to look through your pantry especially and donate anything that has not yet expired that you know you or your family will not consume before its expiration date. There are many food banks that desperately need items to help in your community. There are many families that can not afford to put not only a health meal on the table, but enough that everyone gets enough to eat. Many children go to bed starving, even in some middle class neighborhoods.
If it isn’t evident by now, so many communities have been fragmented, family units have been all about destroyed, and frankly, no one cares outside of their own back yard anymore. This goes beyond color, economic class, beyond nationalism. It’s only Tuesday, and this week has erupted with events that have been simmering a long time, both literally in Nepal, and figuratively now in Baltimore. It’s heart breaking that the bigger issues are being ignored in favor of TV ratings and sparking division especially in the US. There are systems at work deceiving you, encouraging this in an effort to control you, and we all lap it up willingly and say, “Oh, they deserved,” almost in vain. Even if you aren’t religious, the message of treating each other as you would yourself, or simply taking a step back to try and understand where the other person is coming from should be understood – if not a universal truth. You don’t have to step foot into a Holy building to understand that. I encourage everyone to not only continue to pray for peace, but work together more to take back our freedom, and take back our futures from what they want to consider a “reality.”
My son was telling me how at school they refer to September 11th as “America Day.” I then asked him if he knew why, and if they talked about what happened that day at school. He said they didn’t, so I had to find an honest, yet non scary way to explain what happened. I told him how we honor that day for the Americans that died, and the Americans that risked and gave their lives to help others – that’s the heart of what makes America strong. We have come a long way from our previous troubles to this point of unity, even though we have an even longer way to go in a lot of our issues. This day always weighs on me because I remember so vividly when it happened, and the panic that surrounded the major event. I always hope for my peers, and the next generation we move to a more peaceful and tolerant time. We are all in this together.
Remember to keep those directly affected, and those still suffering in your thoughts and prayers. Also keep our brave service men and women fighting on a daily basis to protect us.
