I bent over, grabbed my ears, and pulled my head out of my ass. It helped me recognize how foolish I was behaving by hating Drumpf. Naturally, I got over myself. Instead, I feel sorry for him. I sympathize with the fact that his dad was less than ideal. I acknowledge it may have been a tad unwise to give a child a million dollars for nothing (50 years ago!). It’s possible this type of parenting led to a poor grasp of economics. How sad. I think every parent should tell their children what they can do to make them proud. Let’s eliminate the mystery as it’s led to so much misery.
It wasn’t hard when I set my mind to rejecting hate. It took only a few moments of mentally placing myself in Drumpf’s shoes and looking at the world through his eyes. Easy peasy. Do try this at home with every human you encounter for the rest of your life. Please, and thank you. When you are able to understand how a person sees, it makes them loveable. You then get to reasonably choose how to feel about them. I want to love Drumpf as a human and hate his actions, what he stands for, and what he’s doing to my nation. That’s what I need to maintain my honor. Your mileage may vary.
Once you’ve bothered to understand, how you choose to feel is none of my business. It’s not like I can’t guess. I know most Americans are pretty shaken up right now, and some aren’t ready to stand up yet. I wish I could embrace each of you and promise you it’s going to be okay. All I can do is pledge my support, my love, and my abilities. I did that when I was 17, so we’re good.
As for those who choose to cling to hate and violence in the storm ahead, you no longer exist in my world. I no longer consider you American citizens (more like Russian terrorists), and thus you are no longer subject to my anything. I’m a human; my heart burns like fire and can be as cold as space. I know how to suck it up and drive on through extraordinary chaos. I’ve seen and heard things I wish I could forget. My country trained me to be a soldier and a scholar. I’ll use everything within me to fight against you. I am a formidable enemy of hate. I’m not afraid, I’m livid. And I’m far from alone.
