What I pray for — I woke up this morning in a semi-dream state, not being able to awake; stuck praying that things will get better.
But then realized this is not going to happen in 2020.
Maybe because of knowing the trend lines, ineffective senate and national government, and knowing we have one of the worst set of disasters ever in our republic.
So I pivoted, and started praying that no more blacks get killed on our streets.
But then realized this prayer is not going to happen either.
I was still stuck in a semi-dream state.
How did we get here?
Was it just the Russians? Just false conspiracy theory leaders? Just abuse of power? Just miss information? Was it misinformed and slack voters? Changing laws? What was it?
Then I realized that maybe there was something I could pray for. In watching Comedy shows like:
John Oliver – https://www.hbo.com/last-week-tonight-with-john-oliver
Trevor Noah – http://www.cc.com/shows/the-daily-show-with-trevor-noah
CNN, MSNBC, and having to turn off the volume when I hear so many of the purposeful disingenuous statements by other channels and some people in power (you know who)….
If I want fantasy and distortions of facts I know what tabloid to read – but not everyone knows.
Some CORE power ONLY exist because the uniform and weaker are and get manipulated
Maybe, just maybe there is something I can pray for……
I pray for the propaganda machine of FOX news to be reduced in influence
That we get out of this mess – not just temporarily, but permanently – Which is ONLY going to happen in a US where there is a united, informed, and educated voting population.
Maybe that is just a dream……..
But at least this prayer is attainable. And baby steps can happen NOW! And not wait until 2021…..
Then I woke up, and back to work.
Peace be with you.
