I wouldn't be here if Trump was President when I was young. -
@realdonaldtrump - you are are destroying the geopolitical landscape and fueling a modern day civil war with your isolationist, racist, fear mongering guised as leadership and a false return of power to the people of America. -
In fact, you and your team are trying to hijack America.

We see you.

We will stop you somehow. We will get you out.

To our refugee brothers and sisters we apologize for our President. He is a reality tv star that was voted in by accident. Our Republican brothers and sisters knew not what they were doing and who they were voting for. We will do what we can to end this "reign."

life given to work that has no end. thank you, Sir.

I started 2017 with mixed feelings, but a determined spirit to frame those feelings. I went back and re-read this note my Dad gave me years ago and it reminded me of who I am and what I am capable of. I thought I would share as it applies to you too. -

I ended 2016 with a sigh of relief because last year was an eye opening experience of loss and frustration coupled with extreme growth and recognition that showed we have the endurance to overcome big hurdles. It was also a reminder that we are always under construction and we have not "arrived" and never will - it IS an infinite journey.

I am learning not to put pressure on the future, and that the path of least resistance is still the best one. -

Take note of your environment, the humans who surround you and strengthen your resolve to rise to all occasions. The greatest moments of your life are still ahead. -
-

Blessings and best of all things to you in 2017.
