Good People

Donald Trump is not a good person. I know that. You know that. Hell, the entire civilized world knows that.

As a fitting conclusion to his first year in office he and his toadies shut down our government. Reprehensible is the first word that comes to mind. He is much like a terribly spoiled three-year old who still believes he’s the center of the universe.

But, this isn’t about the greedy, cheating, racist, lying, sexual predator we have as our country’s leader. This is about good people. Good people know when to stop defending those who do not deserve defending.

Donald Trump doesn’t deserve defending. If you are a good person, stop defending him.

A Prayer of St. Augustine

Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy. Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy. Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy. Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy. Amen.
