Shall we settle for disagreeing… for this is what incites
and stirs up controversy… instead of taking the high road
to: equality, respect and seeking a moral and honorable
status for the next generation is established by the in-road
of inclusion, this will not be seen if people like Rep. Lewis
continue to maintain Trump is not a ‘legitimate president,’
this view does not give the US its strength to see ahead or
to face obstacles, a step back on the bridge in Selma lent,
what happened to lose sight of the greater goal,”The Dream”
to equality by a Civil Rights Leader to desire segregation
over accepting loss by Party failure, thinking any of us as
Americans first are any more deplorable than discrimination.
Words of the POTUS before Jan. 20th, 2017, regarding tweets… but can also be applied to the naivety of disregarding our own history before engaging in biased thoughts of our own time (today)- our own legacy slighted and forgotten.
“We are moving into an era where a lot of people get their information through tweets and soundbites and some headline that comes over their phone,” the president said. “There’s a power in that. There’s also a danger — what generates a headline or stirs up a controversy and gets attention isn’t the same as the process required to actually solve the problem.”
He warned people not to “underestimate the guy” and urged congressional Republicans and Trump supporters around the country to be sure “that as we go forward, certain norms, certain institutional traditions don’t get eroded, because there’s a reason they’re in place.”
[Please keep in mind one thing about Rep. John Lewis, this is a man that stood up for ‘Civil Rights’, a man of character and strength to face adversaries against equality (in the past). PLEASE NOTE: Nothing was said when a POTUS violated the US Constitution… when POTUS Obama co-hosted a summit meeting at the UN… there was silence! Nothing was said when POTUS Obama misled America and ignored Congress either!
To see a man, a Black man… a Representative of the people, wonder if this country is facing an uncertainty of an ‘ill-legitimate president’ and would base this as his personal reason for not attending a Presidential Inauguration? Is this not the equivalent to taking a knee during the National Anthem? Just a thought, and it is little wonder as to ‘why’ the Democratic Party [my own Party… I did not vote for Hillary] lost the election.
