Let Freedom Ring

You flung the lid off of Pandora’s Box, thinking your charisma could tamp down the hate, but you underestimated the toxicity you tapped into and gave new life. You can still right the wrong by making a clean break from the despicable rhetoric, ill-advised choices and actions. Make your motivation not about yourself and your interests, but the well-being of all the people you have the duty to serve with dignity and respect.

That reality T.V. show bubble you live in has gotten real in ways you didn’t anticipate. You can’t change the lighting or leave what’s unflattering for you on the cutting room floor. You have to own it 100%. Every word that comes out of your mouth, every tweet and every action committed by you or anyone acting in or invoking your name. The buck stops with you. Be the leader of the free world, not one bound by autocracy, bigotry and misogyny.

Surround yourself with people who are wise, experienced, not seeking their own agenda, compassionate and level-headed. Your first few choices have been the antithesis of creating and contributing to the unification of our great nation, but you still have time to turn it around. People that won’t just say yes, but will challenge you with truth and to do what is right for all of the people in this great nation, not just factions.

Your only mandate is to be fair and work towards the interests of the entire nation, the people that make up this beautiful melting pot that Lady Liberty stands watch for through the darkest night and fiercest storm. This melting pot, seasoned with the diversity of its people, making it a rich, hearty stew.
