Not all leaders move us forward. Some use their position of power to destroy progress and global advances for their own personal gain. Some do it for spite. Others do it out of sheer ignorance. Some just do not understand the real world.
Some, like Secretary of State, Tillerson said, are just f*** ing morons. Others are just plain dotards. The guy currently in the Offal Office, the #BLOTUS, is moving our nation backward as fast he can, Sad, very sad, that our congressional leaders are not opposing his destruction of our great country.
We all have been told that the pen is mightier than the sword. And although I agree, words in and of themselves cannot change the world.
Yes. We need to express ourselves, and speak out against injustice in every form. Yes. We need to speak up for the oppressed and those unable to speak up for themselves.
But speaking up, speaking out, is not enough. We must come to the place where we distill our feelings into pure action. We need to translate our compassion and need for global justice into the pure eloquence of action. Only then will we achieve the global good we all seek.
