Yes, He Is Your President, Too

Fortunately, or unfortunately... it's true.

Yes, He Is Your President, Too

Disgruntled Americans,

Donald J. Trump is YOUR president.

It does not matter what political party you subscribe to.

It does not matter what amount of disdain, or favor, you hold for his policies.

It does not matter what you say, how you protest, or whatever you post.

Fact is, the moment he was sworn in- he was OUR president.

He is acting leader of us, as a nation.

Please understand the large amount of checks and balances in our government that prevent any form of totally radical action taking place.

You can disagree with what he says- but know that our government isn't one to give one man that much power.

So, everyone, please stop with the "He isn't my president".

He is.

He will be for at least the next four years.

Like it or not.

You don't like him?

Don't be him. Make a statement.

Not one with riots, or protests, or hate filled speech.

Make a statement by being unshaken.

So, this is everyone's time.

This is everyone's time to rise and support the leader of our nation.

To support your own future.

Get an education.

Rise above your circumstance.

Stand for what you believe in.

Do what justice you can- where you can.

Love those who hate.

Bring good where you see none.

But, if you desire a better nation, simply hating who is now leading it is not the answer.

Donald J. Trump is our president.

Words I never thought I'd say, and words I'm not too pleased to say either.

But, I ask you to find the strength within you to rise above disappointment and into action.

I ask you to join hands and find the greatness that our new president is hoping to bring.

Let's make America great again.

You don't need to agree with president Trumps platform to make that happen- but make your own.

Create your own greatness, wherever you can.

Be the difference you strive and yell for.

Otherwise, no change will be seen.

I believe in our ability to rise above, despite your agreements (or lack thereof) with leaders.

Most sincerely,

Someone who wants to see America great again.

Remember The True Meaning of Christmas

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
