I’m sure many of you like me could not wait for this election to be over. Nothing like kicking you while you’re already down. Here we are, trying not to die from Covid, and a vicious election year gets in the way. Daily, I here people say, “I can’t wait for this election to be over.” And I couldn’t have agreed more. I was tired of the adds, the lies, the broken promises, the witch hunts, scandals, and FOX vs CNN, But is this really over? Can we move on already?
I’m not a political person, I really have no buisness commenting on anything remotely close to politics. But I do know when things aren’t right. May I ask: Are we finally done with Russia? Can we agree we will work harder to end and rectify social injustices? Is any one going to care about Trump’s taxes anymore? Has the moment come when we can finally agree to disagree? Is Hunter Biden the new “Hilary’s emails?” Any way we can put all the convoluted stories to rest? Can the American people please get some better shows and movies on Netflx? We’re in a pandemic over here!
If not, and if we still can’t shake the grudges, can we at least get down to buisness during the recovery? Somewhere in the midst of this chaos, the people who need our leaders the most have been forgotten. The homeless are still homeless, schools are failing, roads are crumbling, there are people who can’t afford medicine, the unemployed are suffering, the poor can’t catch a break, the abused may not be here tomorrow, and mother nature is really pissed at us. Perhaps we can get this Covid thing under control now? Do we have permission to move forward and overcome?
“You are a light. You are a light. Never let anyone, any person or any force – dampen, dim, or diminish your light. Release the need to hate, to harbor division, and the enticement of revenge. Release all bitterness. Hold only love, only peace in your heart, knmowing that the battle of good to overcome evil is already won.” – John Lewis
P.S. Let’s get this right this time America.
