How Come We All Aren’t Furious?
Over 100,000 people have lost their lives. Billions that have been put back into the economy from the Federal Government have gone to real estate developers where the lions share should really go to small business owners and employees. We are lied to multiple times during the day. Our President has not only applauded but riled up an underbelly of racism and hate that is beyond ugly. It is how he functions, changing the rhetoric and distorting reality until you aren’t even sure what is real.
Can you imagine what a different place our country would be in if the President had immediately figured out a supply chain for hospitals, told the American public that we all need to follow the rules in order to combat this together? Bring us together in a pandemic rather than divide us even further.
We would have all been wearing masks since early February or before when our Government knew what was coming. How many lives would have been saved? How we wouldn’t have to watch idiots shoulder to shoulder with strangers parading on boardwalks without masks. Many believe this virus is just a hoax. They can be in the same box as the anti-vaccine peeps.
I am at a place right now where I am not feeling good about being an American. I am disgusted, I am furious, I am angry, I am sad, I am frustrated and am very concerned about leadership period.
Good leaders have integrity, honesty, courageousness, compassion, humility, empathy, and most important has a passion to make a difference. We need them everywhere but particularly at the top of the Federal Government. One who shows that they care about all of us instead of just riling up the ugly underbelly of America.
And just a nod to Jack Dorsey for finally doing what Twitter should have done a long time ago. Show the lies.
