The Choice Constantly Before Us

Justice For Humanity

In the tumultuous world of Resident Rump, I respectfully offer the following thoughts and observations for your consideration.
Hostility comes easy. Trust entails risk. In a world gone mad and a nation divided, free-floating hostility is a predictable response.Hostility nourishes suspicion, justifies intolerance, and inflates egos. Trust requires one to set a lower guard, risk disappointment, and demonstrate one’s character.

Hostility creates drama, complications, and audaciousness. It can make one appear impressive to others. It can camouflage cowardice and pass for courage. It drapes cravenness in the cloak of valor. It drowns out the whimpers of a quaking soul with the roar of rage.

Trust, on the other hand, is an expression of sincerity, humanity, and composure. Others may suspect our intentions, resent our efforts or envy of our composure.

Hostile people expend a great deal of energy and time to maintain their state of rage. Trusting people, in contrast, gain vigor and resilience from the additional positive options and this perspective illuminates.

We must make a choice between hostility and trust moment after moment, day after day. It is not a one and done. Choosing hostility rips the social fabric rends, the bond of affection, stills the mystic chords of memory; choosing trust strengthens and amplifies them.

The far, far better course for our children, our nation, and ourselves is to run the risk of deception and disappointment and endure the burden of errors and betrayals, which are the lot of humankind, after all, than to promote and practice aggression, resentment, and wariness. The first course summons hope, revival, and encouragement. The second, far too commonly conjures cruelty, contempt, and conflict. The choice we make between hostility and trust is entirely and recurrently up to each of us.
We, the people, the rightful sovereigns in the Republic, must not let any who strive to rule us, dissolve the political bands which connect us and degrade or derail the formation of a more perfect union. Despite their relentless efforts of those who would divide us, we can and must strum the mystic chords of memory and summon the better angels of our nature.

In years to come, will we look into the eyes of children we love about and tell them “We had the opportunity to make a difference, but lacked the courage to try?” For the sake of the Republic, the land we love, our children, and ourselves let us rise and restore “Power to the People.”
