This is where we are

My son hears Donald Trump name chanted almost every time he turns on the TV. When we are riding down the road he will start to chant Donald Trump. I admit that is upsets me.And I found myself so close to yelling at him to make him stop. Instead I explained to him the way I see Donald Trump. I’m sure some of you reading this will not agree and some of you will agree. Either way I said these words.

“Son the reason it upsets me to hear you chant this man’s name is because, yes a lot of jobs have been brought back to the country. Unemployment is down. Some people are getting richer.But it’s like this: if you had a job where you dug holes all day and now you are promoted to a where people kick you all day would that make you happy?” I know there probably is no job where they kick you all day, but who knows. I went on to tell him, “Money can’t fix all your problems it does help but only so much. Donald Trump has been giving everything he has ever wanted and he is still not happy. And not just him there are many rich people who are not happy.Money is not everything.”

As a country we are being torn apart. Some of us see it, and yet we can’t believe our eyes and our ears. How can so much proof of lies be verified and people still believe the lie. Then I think about it. Most people can justify anything. on Seinfeld George justified  running out of a burning building while pushing women and children down by saying he was clearing a path.

What are people telling themselves to believe Trump lies. And what is the cost of these lies to us as a society. Will it be fun to have the biggest house in the neighborhood and you can not talk to your neighbor. Will it be cool to have the nicest car and have people throw rocks at it because they hate the person driving it.

Will we look at ourselves later like  Oscar Schindler and realize almost to like what we have done. People I leave you with this.  And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Mark 8:36

Don't gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold...Quite literally the saddest, yet best movie ever. End makes me cry every time. Can't wait to watch again!!!!

This could easily be us.
