Here we are more than 4 years later… I’m not sure if anything has changed or this is more relevant than ever, but while we await the election results, I thought this was fitting for Throwback Thursday.
My heart feels heavy lately. Like I’m on the verge of tears one minute and angry the next. The continuous posts on Facebook and social media of Donald Trump. The fact that I have friends and family that are posting racist and hateful posts. Trying to stay open minded and let people have their opinions, but I just can’t justify the fact that people think that Trump is qualified or educated enough to run this country. I just saddens me that people I love can feel the way they feel. Can think it’s ok to judge people for the color of their skin and the way they look. This issue is bigger than Trump or any political candidate for that matter. It’s the fact that it is tearing apart this country.
I have started deleting people and taking them out of my feed because even though I can love people, I can’t agree with them or their views. To me some things are not funny but hurtful. I just can’t take any more hate. I feel like it is literally breaking my heart little by little.
I want to believe in love. I want to believe there is still good in this world. I want to believe that love can overpower fear and hate and violence. I want to believe that love wins. Love always wins.
