Trump Marks a Turning Point

Trump's evident lack of empathy, humanity, and care for most Americans calls all of us to action. What can we do in the face of a President who is so cruel and inhumane?

First, we have to make sure that in our own lives we live with as much empathy and humanity as we can muster. What we do in our day to day lives to lift our family members, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and others is critical. It's often a lot easier to stand up and speak out for what is right than to actually do the good work possible.

Next, we have to make sure that the way we use money and do our own work is ethical and forward moving. We can't cheat, and need to be mindful of needs close to home and far away.

After that we have to support good government. Good government helps all to have fair and equitable lives. Good government ensures that wealthy companies and individuals don't cheat the common person. Good government uses money to help out when there are disasters. Good government works with global partners to protect and forward the global community with as much peace as possible. Good government looks for creative ways to better lives for all. Good government is not greedy and singularly directed to only a few, but works with collaboration and good effort to make life better for all.

And we can't accept leadership that is troubled, insane, unstable, disrespectful, and unfit for office. It's my opinion that President Trump is unfit to lead our country. He is a disgrace to all that I value in our country. I can't wait until the day that he steps down, and I hope on that day he moves to another country.

I continue to honor the good leaders and American citizens that work tirelessly day in and day out to do what is right. I hope to follow their leadership.
