The way forward
Donald Trump is an out-of-control dumpster fire. No one with any sense at all would dispute that. But so what?
We can’t solve America’s problems with clever posts on Facebook or twitter. Buttons and bumper stickers won’t make America safe for Democracy again.
We must lead the way by living our values, no matter the personal risk in doing so. Our founders pledged their lives, their fortune and their sacred honor to make this nation possible. They risked everything.
The least we can do is open our eyes fully, see what needs to be done, and accept the challenge of being citizens. Risk being a leader. Often, that means doing things that are hard. It may mean doing things that make us uncomfortable. It may even mean opening our wallets to support the people and causes we believe in.
