Prayers for my country

Last weekend, a mosque in Minnesota was bombed. My President still has not issued a statement.

Today, in Charlottesville, a woman was killed in a rally where my fellow Americans were waving Confederate flags and swastikas. My President denounced "violence on many sides." He repeated that phrase, "on many sides."

Why do I keep expecting better things from him? After all, he began his political life as our Birther in Chief. Where did he think that dog-whistle rhetoric would lead?


My heart is sore. I do not want to believe that the 49% of the country that elected Donald Trump is racist and anti-Semitic.

I hope that in the coming days, I'll see more and more Republicans come forward. For now, I'll hold these tweets dear.

  1. In my backyard, Charlottesville. I thought I would make myself hoarse screaming at the president when he came out to make his comments. What a rat's ass he is. And that's being nice to rats.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
