Complacency

In my personal opinion America had entered into complacency prior to the election of 2016.  We were all living our lives oblivious of our neighbors.  Not only were we ignoring the dangers of our neighborhoods, we were ignoring the dangers of America.

Black men are being killed four out of five encounters with the police based on a sense of fear of the police to Black men.  School children can’t go to school without the fear of not being able to return home creating Post Traumatic Stress for thousands of children.  Individuals not being able to afford health insurance because the insurance companies wanting to make a profit on illness.  And seniors not being able to afford needed medication due to Big Pharma having a strong hold on profit and patents.

Prior to the 2016 election we had no clue that by not being involved with the process we would end up with an America that we do not recognize and one that we fear.  This current administration is led by an individual that may be suffering from dementia or governing by hate; regardless we are being thrown into a whirlwind of negative change which we will not be able to recover from.

I truly worry that not enough will get out and vote in the 2018 midterm elections and America could literally end up a bankrupt nation.  I pray that I am wrong and will wait to see what tomorrow holds.  See you in November 2018.

This is my Thought for Today.
