Just the facts…the man is a criminal, through and through. And those still supporting him can no longer claim ignorance. They choose to support a lying, racist, xenophobe, whose only aim is to enrich himself while destroying everything good about our country.
There is a growing shame to being a Trump supporter that carries a stench that will not be easily erased. History will remember.
The poor and the hungry do not need our charity. They need, and they deserve, justice. Every hungry person, every poor person we meet offers us the opportunity to reflect the love of Christ.
We live in a world that has grown much colder and much darker. Reaching our in mercy and compassion to the poor shines the light of hope for our society. The “least of these among us” offer us redemption. All we have to do is take it.
For eight years we have been blessed with a scandal-free First Family. I, for one, will miss President Obama’s quiet dignity and deep strength in the face of all the hatred and opposition he faced from the moment he took the oath of office.
History will bear record to his accomplishments. He has exemplified true servant leadership and has led our nation with intelligence, wit, humor and true humility.
We now enter a new era where the new leader of our nation thrives on lies and scandals, cannot communicate a clear thought and reeks of racism, xenophobia and bigotry. I, along with most of the world, am holding my breath as the United States begins a perilous journey led by an ego larger than the nation, itself.
Farewell, President Obama, and God bless you. You are already missed.
It’s not only the poor among us that stand in need of equality and justice. We all need equality and justice.
We live in a world where we allow thousands to die daily from hunger and malnutrition, even when we know there’s far more than enough food to feed everyone. That is more than injustice.
Until the hungry get fed, and all of our human family has a place at the table there is no equality and there is no justice. And I would add, not much humanity, either.
Farm subsidies for millionaire politicians is morally repugnant when the poor , hungry and homeless of our nation are accused of being the problem. When are we going to live up to the values we profess?
