POLITICAL NOTE: The ravages to our beloved country are like a terminal cancer and this one runs deep. Sadly, it has been building for decades. It's not just the current POTUS and his evil cabinet; but all the others who cater to the 1%, corporations, military etc. There really is hope, stop blaming others and lets get things done. "We The People" need to come together and not be divided. "They" hate a united, educated, questioning people and will continue the "smoke and mirrors" BS to divide us. Don't let them divert you. Stay focused and strong! {{P.S. There are those who will disagree with me or spew hate. Don't give in to hate or to "them". Unite with us in love, peace, compassion, empathy, helping humanity and our beloved country ... our beloved planet. Rise and be one!!}}
