There are exceptions, powerful exceptions, but for the most part I have to agree.
I’ve spent the majority of my life working to end hunger. I know from personal experience that by working together we can change the world. It starts with speaking up for those who cannot be heard and standing up for those who cannot be seen.
Faulkner says it far better than I can. Read his quote again. But, achieving a world of peace and justice, a world where honesty, truth and compassion holds sway, is possible. We can achieve a world where caring trumps greed, lying, and hatred.
I want that world. Let’s stand up and speak out, and let us not be afraid to continue speaking out until we transform our world into a place where love truly trumps fear and hatred.
Being the leader of the free world is a hard job. We all know that. No one can deny that a day or two off occasionally is both good and necessary.
But, most of us would also agree that there are limits. Spending half your time at one of your own resorts, especially on taxpayer dollars, seems a bit excessive. Personally, I do not like paying the salary of an incompetent, racist liar, especially when he spends over half his time vacationing at my expense.
Maybe the #BLOTUS should just retire before justice catches up to him. I do not know of any federal prisons with golf courses…or tanning beds.
As Mueller’s investigation draws ever closer to the #BLOTUS, these powerful words from our Declaration of Independence ring more true than ever before. The majority of the thinking world understands that the man is unfit for any role in civil society, much less being the ruler of the United States.
The sooner #BLOTUS is legally removed from office, the sooner we can begin rebuilding our nation’s reputation again. I know what I would like for Christmas, and since I am not picky, I have two options. Impeachment proceedings is my first choice. My second is a letter of resignation.
The criminal trial and conviction for treason would just be a big bonus, as well as a salute to justice.
God of peace, we pray for those who have served our nation
We pray for those who have fought, whose spirits and bodies are scarred by war,
We pray for those who serve us now, especially for those in harm’s way.
Turn the hearts and minds of our leaders and our enemies
May the peace you left us, the peace you gave us,
Christ Jesus, hear us! Lord Jesus, hear our prayer!
God our deliverer,
defender of the poor and needy;
when the foundations of the earth are shaking,
give strength to your people to uphold justice and fight all wrong,
in the name of your son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
David Stancliffe (1942-)
