The once United States of America is now a terribly broken nation, in dire need of honorable leadership, enlightened representation, and thoughful introspection.
The venom with which self-centered citizens attack each other is only self-destructive. The bigotry and hatred, once hidden under a veneer of social nicety, is now plainly evident, and even celebrated.
The fear, anger, confusion, and loneliness of so many of its citizens are evident in each vituperative tweet storm that seeks to blame, rather than understand.
A heartbreaking moment in our history that cannot be erased. American Democracy left the building a while ago. What remains grows more rotten by the hour. It may be slowed by momentary acts of good sense, but a reckoning is due. I pray it is civilized, when it comes to pass.
We, The People, will either be the force behind that reckoning, or we will be subject to it. The coming months and years will be difficult ones, and will eventually reflect either our collectively inherent nobility and inclusive goodness, or a barbarity we can no longer deny.
