I need to get this off my chest…
…I fear what lies ahead.
In all honesty, I’m desperately hoping I’m not the only person who is afraid. I need validation for the sense of despair I have for the future of America. The unfounded hysteria spewing forth from the left is worrisome.
When I hear and see the liberal media, celebrities, and people losing their collective minds over anything and everything our President does or says…I feel disgusted and anger from the pit of my stomach. It literally makes me sick. Not so much because I disagree with what their vision is for our country…but the fact that they are so closed minded and egotistical. They truly believe that it’s their way or the highway. There is no compromise or hey let’s have on an open discussion to see what we all can agree on. Its only name-calling, ridicule, riots, protests, and violence. Because that’s what peaceful, tolerant, anti-war, inclusive and civilized individuals do, right?
I would love to believe that Americans truly have the same beautiful vision for the future of this amazing country we are so blessed to live in. However, I am beginning to wonder if it’s just wishful thinking.
The world we are now living in seems foreign to me…
…almost like a nightmare.
Children are attacked, threatened and harassed because they are brave enough to stand up for their beliefs, politicians condone harassment and violence against American citizens because of who they voted for, Police officers are demonized, and criminals are victimized, disrespect towards our military is increasing, being a patriotic American is offensive and our freedom of speech and 2nd amendment rights are in imminent danger of being stripped away.
Sometimes I wonder if we are looking at a civil war in our future.
Is this what the left is hoping comes to pass?
Are they seeing just how far they can push us until we finally snap? Then they can say, see they are the crazy, violent ones, those evil, racist, Nazi, homophobic Conservatives.
It’s happened before.
When people feel like their way of life, their rights, their freedoms are being threatened what recourse do they have but defend it? Wouldn’t you? Don’t they realize if America fails, not only will we suffer, but the rest of the world will as well? We are always there to help others in need. Americans are truly the most compassionate and giving people on the planet, but if we can’t take care of ourselves how can we help anyone else?
If something drastic doesn’t change soon, I am afraid the America I have always known and loved will forever be lost. The very ideals and principles that so many men and women have fought and died for and still defend this very day seem to be fading away before my eyes.
So, I pray.
I pray that God will open eyes and hearts before it’s too late. I pray that somewhere, someone will start a conversation…a simple conversation with people that are willing to listen to one another without judgment or arrogance.
I pray for forgiveness…because I don’t want to be angry
I want to be a part of the solution, not the problem. I will hold tight to my faith and cling to hope.
There is always hope.
