Love Comes Easier Then Hate…


Make America Breathe Again.

This country is suffocating.

You just cannot wipe it away with words.

We are drowning in a novel virus, suffocated by hatred and racial injustice, smothered by unemployment, overwhelmed by the destruction of our environment, handicapped by unfair and inadequate healthcare, restrained by an inferior education system and we have the worst, most corrupt, hate filled president in American history.

trump did not singlehandedly bring all this destruction upon America, but he has exacerbated matters, promoted racism and brought all the polarizing inadequacies front and center.

After the violent death of Rayshard Brooks on Friday night concerned Americans have to step back and wonder if all the peaceful demonstrations are making a difference.

How can police officers, under such intense scrutiny, still be so blatantly violent?

Today, there is no comfort zone.

We are all tired, lonely, frustrated, fearful and mad as hell.

We cannot rationalize ourselves out of this emotional and physical pandemic and the passing forward of generational hate and fear.

We are all holding our collective breathes waiting for the next disaster which seems to be a daily occurrence since trump became dictator.

Enough is enough.

But, we are resilient, smart, compassionate people.

You gotta have faith.

The mood for change is palpable.

This is not a moment, but a real movement and the time to move protest into policy.

And, remember to VOTE like we have collectively never voted before so we can all start to breathe again, releasing the country from the poisonous, gaseous Agent Orange contamination and the stench of racism.

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”…Nelson Mandela
