America Has Been Put Through Enough, Mr. President - I'm Weary and Worn Out

It has been a long while since I posted here. I have been rather distraught and disjointed and semi-dysfunctional over the events of 2020 in America. From the pandemic and the dreadful response to it by the government; the tragic race-baiting and rioting; the racist profiling and murdering of people of color by some police officers; our President's litany of lies, distortions, misinformation and deceit spread throughout the country by social media almost daily; and, finally, the election. I'm just bone-tired of it all. It has been - by far - the most dreadful year of my life. And nothing bad happened to me personally! Even though I take the attempt to destroy democracy in my nation somewhat personally.

As always, John Pavlovitz (who I now refer to as my best friend - with my tongue firmly in my cheek, as I've never met the man), has written a short essay which expresses exactly how I feel, but in words that are succinct, comprehensible - and not worthy of censoring!

President Trump, Haven’t You Put America Through Enough?

Wow, that was an excellent piece. Thanks for capturing the essence of turmoil in our country. I hope we can all move forward and forget this sorry excuse of a man who cheapened our country and tried to be a dictator in everything he did. May we all be comforted in the fact that he will be gone in 2 months. It may be a long period of time punctuated by his hatred and spewed untruths, but we will get past it and grow stronger with a respectful new president.

John Pavlovitz is my best friend, too. His words have been a comfort for the last very long four years. Glad to meet you, too.
