Donald Trump has an insatiable hunger for others’ fear. POTUS feeds on the destruction he wrecks as he rips apart America’s precious history and institutions. He enjoys conning the country’s families into believing there is a fearsome other rather than humans beings whose blood is all red and whose tears are all salty drops of pain.
The largest organism in the world is a 2,400-year-old 3.4 square mile fungi. There is one train of thought that says we are all connected. By trying to divide the country, this president inflicts real pain on all of us. When he. destroys the lives of 109,000 Americans through his callous inaction, each of us suffers a small death as we sit in our isolated homes waiting and wondering: Will the next death be ours or someone we love?
By the same token, people coming together in support of one another in protests makes us stronger and more compassionate. That is far more rewarding than the gerbil wheel of earning ever more money. That is not something 45 can stop, even when he tries to politicize the nation’s military.
Reverend Al Sharpton gave George Floyd’s eulogy Thursday. He referred to a quote about a time for all seasons. Then he said: “The time is now.” This time is a confluence of the pandemic and a shattered economy when people can be their best. This is a time when people have the rare opportunity in these moments of quiet to reconsider what kind of country we want, to make it better than before.
One man, even the president cannot stop that which is best about America — its people. Trump knows that when we stand alone, it is easier to break us than when we stand united in these United States. In his attempts to destroy our nation, he has failed. Instead, this is the best time to decide what we want for the next 200 years. Americans will be the ones to fix what is wrong. The old systems are tired and broken. Now is the time for change.
Today, as the nation watched the funeral of George Floyd, a gentle giant who was slow-motion murdered by corrupt police, POTUS limped in on another weak tweet:
‘The Radical Left Democrats new theme is “Defund the Police”. Remember that when you don’t want Crime, especially against you and your family. This is where Sleepy Joe is being dragged by the socialists. I am the complete opposite, more money for Law Enforcement! #LAWANDORDER’
Twitter world went took courage when Trump feverously worked trying to further divide the country so that he could slide down the crevice. Take a look at some of our favorite responses below:
