All the Democrats hating on Trump. All the Republican hating on Hillary and Bernie. Half the Dems hate Hillary. Half the Dems hate Bernie. Half the Republicans hate Trump.
The Republicans fear democratic socialism, Bernie and fear Hillary, too. One-half of the Dems fear Hillary, do the other half fear Bernie? Do all Democrats fear Trump?
Fear and hate – the two strongest emotions in the world. Fear and hate only breeds more fear and hate.
What about policy and integrity? Why don’t we speak of these? Are we not all Americans? Are we not all people of one world, one planet?
Change happens when the fear of staying the same is greater than the fear of change.
Which fear is greater for you now?
For me, it’s of things staying the same, as they have for thousands of years. When will we be done with hate and killing for being a different skin color, sex, nationality, or any of the other reasons?
So, I try to look to our commonalities. I seek to see the humanity in us all. I work to love everyone – even if I disagree with their viewpoint.
My vow, from this day forward, focus on our sameness, our similarities. And when our differences attempt to separate us and hinder our togetherness, I will hold up compassion, discuss to understand, and above all, show love and respect for my fellow human beings.
If we all do that – will it matter who our next President is? If we all try to understand, sympathize and empathize, then will we be able to see LOVE MATTERS. Would it change the world?
LOVE CRUSHES FEAR
LOVE SILENCES HATE
I do not fear or hate Trump. I find his policies and stance on issues to be poor choices that do not promote love, but divisiveness. I do not see by his words, past actions, and character that he is a man of integrity.
I do not fear or hate Hillary. She aligns more to my thoughts on policy and issues, but I do not believe she is trustworthy due to her past actions, and I believe she does not have integrity.
Still today, my views and positions align the most with Bernie Sanders, and I find by his actions, his speech, and his life works that he has integrity.
He was and is my only choice – not just for me – for US! Not just for democrats – but for Americans and even the world.
Because Bernie’s message isn’t just about policy and issues – his message is understanding and love.
I choose to be like Bernie – to do my best to show love, compassion, kindness and understanding to all my fellow human beings.
And, it’s not because I idolize him or see him as a hero.
It’s because I see in him more of what I’d like to see in myself.
Bernie makes me want to be a better person.
