Re: Trumps theater tweet
I understand this is venting, but is this healthy for your mind and heart?
Seems energy poorly focused when this could be applied to every candidate involved, why bother singling out one... just because he won the election?
I guess I find this interesting in several ways, probably disappointing in most.
My brother has been the most compassionate person I have known in my life, gentle in many ways and things that I admired... recently accepted a faith and was brought into the Lutheran church with his wife and daughter all together and even through a social liberal had a fairness that was unwavering until this election and it's results.
As I was talking to him on the phone last Monday about Portland (he lives in the surrounding area) his projection about all things republican was shocking... I honestly wasn't sure who I was talking to while I was sure I could feel the spittle coming through the phone his words were so filled with judgement and hatred. He knew I had no dog in this fight per se, outside of the fact I could never vote for Hillary because of Benghazi, but to hear him excuse all things liberal and vilify all things conservative took me aback and filled me with such a sadness that I told him I couldn't tell the difference between the Liberal Democrats and Conservative Republicans anymore. He gave this almost mocking (I'm not sure it wasn't, but based on the conversation likely) laugh of disbelief and said "Really? You really cannot tell the difference?"
I said "No, the hate looks the same to me".
The conversation was finished politely with him sharing his respect and love for me, and I am sure he truly has and I for him, but it was troubling how quickly we sound like the people we chastise.
Judgement or love, they can't be done at the same time.
Peace be with you katiecrna...
