This morning, very early this morning, we were given a new President. His name is Donald J. Trump. He’s an ordinary, but extraordinary man all at once.
Politics is funny to me. . . It seems at times “up” is “down” and “left” is “right”. I guess the battle for power has always been this way.
Power is a concept that can be used for good or evil. My sense is; despite what some say and write, this Donald J. Trump is, at his core, a good man. Today, at least, I can say I’m glad to give him a chance.
As a child, I always thought people were pretty much the same. They laughed, they cried, they loved, and at times they hated. That’s just the way people are. . . all of them. Seems to me, the overwhelming majority of us are good. That’s right, good.
There have significant changes in my lifetime; some good, some not. As a “baby boomer”, I’ve seen the grit and the good we’re made of as well as some mistakes we’ve made along the way. From time to time, I may share my perspective on those things in the hope you’ll find them historically interesting and maybe even enlightening.
