This blog has been on hiatus so that your friendly blogger could prepare and write a novel in November. After achieving that feat getting back into blogging was harder than expected. For one Donald J Trump was elected by the system despite losing the popular vote. His election to the highest office in the land has put many people in fear that the country will not survive as it has for centuries. He is against everything that this blog stands for; this blog was never meant to be political but 2016 made it a necessity.
The president elect is not interested in helping you and me. That is made most clear by his choices for the cabinet. Every member thus far chosen for his cabinet is someone who would tear down those agencies that were built to help our fellow Americans. An education secretary who doesn’t believe in public education and an EPA head who denies that climate change is man made despite years of research. This is just the tip of the ice berg. 2016 has been an awful year, this blog was made political out of necessity because the acts of kindness it hopes to inspire have become political acts.
Helping each other out an charity may well be labeled Communism by the type of people who I once wrote about. This blog is about spreading hope and inspiring others. That will never change as long as this blog exists. Yes, this blog was never meant to be political but, 2016 changed all that. Helping others has become a political act, so this blog will be political. More will be posted later on the subject of helping out each other and being kind; this short post is just about the changing times. Remember, be kind to one another.
