THE FIRST STEP

I wonder if our president and everyone who hates have any idea why they hate  or where their hate originates.

 

Did something happen to make them hate? Is it something they can elucidate?

 

When did this hateful point of view come to permeate all they say and do?

 

Is hate like a cold…something they once caught or was it from their parents…taught?

 

If we were born to love why did they depart…when did hate engulf their hearts?

 

Do they understand when animosity and malevolence they create it empowers other people to loathe and hate?

 

And when they think about it wouldn’t they find it odd that they’ve linked their hatred with their God?

 

For if God is love as all religions teach then wouldn’t all God’s everywhere our love beseech?

 

And those who stand behind a president who hates…who do nothing as he vituperates?

 

who cheer and encourage him…all those who applaud…I have to wonder…where is their God?

 

It sickens and saddens many of us to see this hate and we can no longer sit on our hands and wait.

 

It’s time to put our country back on track…to defeat this evil…we must fight back.

 

And the first part of the antidote is to go to the polls in November…and vote!

 

There may be no way to eliminate hate…of this I have no doubt 

No… we may not be able to eliminate it…

 

but we can can sure as hell vote it out.
