Happy New Year
warning: opinion ahead
“They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” Benjamin Franklin
“Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.” Abraham Lincoln.
These men were not perfect - But they had ideals and dignity and the knowledge to
protect and improve the lives of everyone.
I pray we don't have to endure the next four years,
amid the destruction an ignorant selfish dolt might unleash
upon our nation and the world.
This elected figure does not even register as a shadow of great men.
When the truth is finally understood by all who voted in hatred and fear,
I pray that it is not too late.
