just another brick in the wall…

Jim Morin, Miami Herald’s Pulitzer Prize winning political cartoonist, proves a picture is worth a thousandĀ liesĀ  words.

a step backwards for humanity

 :

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.

mirror, mirror, not the wall

It is difficult for me to comprehend how the values of our nation have apparently changed. We seem to have thrown away our moral compass and are intentionally fleeing from the responsibilities that have long demonstrated our greatness.

I totally agree that we need to make our nation great again. But endorsing the bullying, selfish, xenophobic, and racist values of the president elect moves us further from that goal. The values of BLOTUS are not the values that will make America (or any other nation) great again.

Have we really come to the place where we have decided hate is better than love? Do we really want to live in fear rather than caring for those most in need? What has happened to our sense of justice for all and compassion for those in trouble?

We definitely need to look into a mirror. We need a rude awaking to see what we are becoming. The United States doesn’t need a wall. We need a heart.
