I am just saying…

22 Jan

womanwriterblogDear Followers,

Let us get back to the business of art, painting beautiful scenes, writing fiction and non-fiction, creating our dreams; let us get back to what is as close to normal as possible (for me), my followers and especially those on my Face Book page. 

I have watched with interest all those running for President of the USA.  I continued to sort through the actions, policies and as they dwindled to two, I watched more closely.  I supported and voted for the individual of my choice.  It does not matter at this point who won or lost, we have a President.  In truth, I do not care about the lives of his children other than to wish them well, I do not care what Mr. Trumps wife wears, where she is from, or about her past or his.  “Bashing with vulgarity” any person in and out of official offices is wrong.  Nonetheless, My FB page has been filled with anti-Trump post for weeks; I had my own entries of course, but I hope with “taste”. 

This morning I checked my FB page and the first post had a particular vulgar word Trump had used during his campaign.  I almost deleted the entire page, I did not faint, my ears did not turn red, and I have heard in all; you do not get my age and maintain your innocence.  My finger hovered over the delete button, I thought of the wonderful people whom “had not” chosen to lay in the gutter; they were trustworthy, decent creative people.  So, I did not delete!

It is time to get on with the business of living our lives, doing what we do best, and chose not to stoop to levels of vulgarity when voicing our opinions.  We all have something to say…I am not speaking of “going” religious or pumping up of the “faith” card, I think you all know me better.  I am just saying; let us be decent in our protest and our marches, we do not have to destroy material things and bash good people.  This country was built on marches, protest and fighting for one’s belief; it is our right as an American to do so, I practice my belief in “freedom of speech” daily.  While we are voicing our dislike for a person, place or issue, let us do so with dignity.  I am just saying…

    Well said . Protesting is legal and fine, but people need to be civil and should not destroy property or create violence. They can also contact their representatives in Washington who they elected to represent their interests. (I wonder just how many of these people have a actually sent an email, or letter expressing their grievances. I believe most of them spend their time just marching in the streets with signs and yelling at whoever will listen to them.)

    As an Englishman, I am very sick of hearing about the rights and wrongs of the US Presidential elections ❤

      May I say “Amen” without it being a mistaken as a religious word; I am an American…part Native American the true Americans…and I am sick and tired of the entire lot. Thanks Jack.

    ‘It is time to get on with the business of living our lives…’

    i so agree.
    the whole ‘Trump’ experience from the beginning is about sensationalism….which the media just love…

    the less we react to the sensationalism, the less we will be affected by it.

    Cheers, Gavin.
    this was my only post i did on Mr. T.
    and it was about sending my ‘love’ to all my American friends ❤
