At the crossroads

imageAt the crossroads

…“Two roads diverged and I took the one less traveled, and that has made all the difference.” … Robert Frost

…“We” meet at this time at this cross roads as a result of the outcome of our 8 November 2016 election…

…”WE” approach hoping that someone has walked each path long before we arrived … and leaving us some sign which resonates for us to follow …

Or maybe not …no matter … just know believe, acknowledge, accept you are at a “choice-point” and make no mistake a choice you shall make…!!!

… Thinking you can somehow, by sleight of hand perhaps, transfer this responsibility to another… just won’t fly…

…As a decision, choice you did make…!!!

…Why “WE” made the decision to elect -“The Donald” – our President – continues to confound political, psychological, philosophical and sociological experts and likely will keep them busy for quite some time…

…Moreover in the end it is doubtful they achieve a consensus conclusion…

… Most, if not all, long held assumptions, testimonies, declarations, verdicts, about how and why “WE” vote appear as a result of the 8 November election to be in total chaos defying all our time honored & best perfected beliefs…

…Many, though certainly no all, are bewildered, and I need confess, I, too, am one…

…As I wonder how any woman could vote for any man who repeatedly belittles, demeans, whose remarks about females are laced with loathsome misogynistic despicable words…???

… In the next breath I wonder how could any person of “color” – non-white ethnicity vote for Trump…???

…I find I want to criticize, condemn and blame education or lack thereof and while I do feel Americans have and continue to short-change our students especially in the areas of history – – American and World History …

…Coupled with not providing an atmosphere developing critical thinking and questioning … wherein it is safe and encouraged to challenge authority and never, never, never accept “stump speech” answers from anyone … as meeting the requirement for thorough response…

…In the face of what is – today – presented to us as information wherein “WE” are asked to independently determine what is TRUE … what is FAKE … what is now authorized by President Trump as “alternative fact”… such assessments are daunting and increasingly so…

 

…Upon reflection and in retrospect I need acknowledge I have been living in “la-la-land” as I keep forgetting “WE” … elected … “THE DONALD”… celebrity extraordinaire’ … and marketing wizard of the Trump “brand” world empire…

…For Trump … “we” are no more than pons in his financial chess game where $$$$ is score keeper…

…The “moves” he will make as President are from all early observation designed to protect at all cost, under all conditions, his incredibly fragile, thin skin, easily bruised “ego”…

…His “condition” calls upon Americans to be ever vigilant as “The Donald” surrounds himself with those with EGOS as fragile as his, placing the direction of our nation and the agencies controlling us in the hands of bunch of irascible children…

…”WE” … that’s you and me … whether we signed upon for it or not … whether we agreed to it or not … “WE” stand at that cross roads facing a decision as to the direction “WE” individually take and “WE” take for our nation, our county, our family, our very lives…

…Overly dramatic … I only hope so … though … the first hours and days of the Trump regime has gotten off to a most ominous start…

…At the cross-roads which path are you choosing to take…?

 

…Gods speed and my best to you in all your endeavors…
