Close to 50% of citizens refused to participate in the last election for the President of the United States. That is their right. But the cost, ever more apparent to the entire world, is not only painful, it is far more damaging than we can imagine.
Our right as citizens is one of the greatest gifts we have been given. To choose not to exercise our right to vote is the ultimate disrespect all of those whose sacrifices have given it to us. Choosing to not participate, even at the most basic level, in politics is what guarantees that we have the government we deserve.
I have never met Graham Holloway, and I do not know anything about him. What I do know, however, is that he has a keen grasp of reality and isn’t afraid to tell the truth.
Mr. Holloway has expressed the unbelievable hypocrisy in our nation and called it what it is. The United States has given up on doing what is right and is moving both backward and downward.
I want a leader that exhibits basic morality and human decency, one who understands and embraces the concept of servant leadership.
This is a critical understanding for the world in which we find ourselves. Our society is sinking ever lower into a culture of anger, bitterness, hate-speech, disrespect, fear-mongering and deceit.
We may not be able to control the actions of those around us, But, we can always choose how we respond. We always have a choice.
Basic morality, basic decency, and mutual respect should be the norms that provide the framework for our society. I, for one, choose to live by those norms.
I am saddened to see those that speak and act in an intentionally divisive manner, purposely working to weaken and even break our bonds of community. But, I have a choice. And I choose to live and act in the knowledge that all of us are one global family.
I choose to live in love. What about you?
