Is there anything we need more at this moment than courageous leaders? The upcoming election is our opportunity to choose the direction of our nation will go. My prayer continues to be that we choose courageous leadership over greed, lies, racism, hatred and evil.
For the past several months we have watched Presidential candidates tell lie after lie. Within hours we have seen these same candidates deny the lies, even when the lies have been recorded. I cannot be the only one that finds this frightening.
In a world of deceit and lies, telling the truth is an act of rebellion. We are approaching the time when we need such a revolution, a revolution where those of us who care band together to speak the truth, even if it means we have to pay a steep price.
The first steep is paying attention. We do not have to accept lies. We have the power to say no to leadership based on deceit. Wrong is wrong no matter how often we are told differently.
Pay attention. Refuse to be silent. Speak out for the truth. Facts are far more powerful than opinions. And evil cannot survive if we stand for the good.
