These are dark days in the United States.
I am reminded of it on a daily basis as I read the latest news or watch it on TV.
I wish I had some magic wand. One that I could wave and wash away what has become of our country over the past three years, since Donald Trump ascended to what he certainly perceives to be his throne.
I travel down memory lane to saner times, where political norms weren’t obliterated every day, and where partisanship trumps and patriotism.
I think of that portrait of Barack Obama, the one that says “Yes, We Can” and it’s makes me sad.I wonder how we so quickly became the “No, We Won’t” nation under the “leadership” of Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell.
No matter how things turn out, I will never feel forgiveness for those who have stood idly by, pretending that nothing abnormal or out-of-the-ordinary is happening in America, and who have enabled Trump to do whatever he wants to do.
Okay. Rant over.
