My Fellow Americans,
It’s Inauguration Day. It’s the day we as a country welcome our 45th President. We as a country should be welcoming President Trump with open and hopeful arms but for some reason we aren’t. I am seeing CHILDREN cursing the President on TV. I am seeing hate spewed towards the man who will spend the next four years running our country. I am seeing members of our government refusing to attend the Inauguration for their new boss; which is beyond disrespectful. That would never be accepted in the “civilian world” so why is it okay for the government?
President Trump will make big decisions that will affect not only our futures but our children’s futures. I can understand the fear. I myself felt that way just eight years ago. I was fearful of where President Obama would lead this country. I didn’t vote for him yet he became my President and MY Commander-in-Chief. I didn’t vote for him and I was fearful but I never burned flags over it. I never claimed he wasn’t my President. I never wanted him to fail!
It’s time for each of you to realize, Trump voter or not, that if President Trump fails then we fail as a country! There is no other option. You need to get on board with our new President. You can hold on to that fear because I can understand it. I am fearful as well. We have a horrible track record as a country of voting in Presidents that promise a lot and end up doing little to nothing they promised. I am fearful that President Trump won’t follow through on some of the issues that are important to me. However, I have to set that fear aside and you should too! Instead, you need to pray for God to help guide President Trump so that he may have the ability to lead this country in the right direction.
I am not saying you can’t disagree with things that are happening. I’m not saying you can’t express those thoughts and feelings. It’s a FREE country and I love that we can each have our own opinions. There is a difference with expressing your opinion and being hateful. When you fill your opinion with hate then your message gets lost. People focus on the hate and not on the important part of the message. Be open to a discussion and seeing both sides of the issue. I’m so tired of the hate, anger and arguing. Start being grown-ups! Be knowledgeable in the issues important to you and have an adult conversation with someone. Quit spewing hate and blame. What will correct the problem? Start putting that message out there and for the love, quit blaming President Trump. The man is just now taking office today. Whether you like him or not, it’s hard to argue that even before he took office he has helped bring jobs back to America and he has helped get our budget problems on track. I’d say that is one darn good start. If you were in his position, you would want people to give you a chance. How about you extend the same courtesy to him!
Life is hard, it’s messy and there are NO PARTICIPATION TROPHIES for it! Be adults, show love, show compassion and quit looking for others to provide you a “safe space”. God is where you need to look for your safe space. Be kind to one another and pray for our government as a whole to have the guidance from God so that we can find the future we are hopeful for.
A Hopeful & Faithful American
