Virtues Trump Vices

If you choose to use your status and influence to raise your
voice on behalf of those who have no voice; if you choose to
identify not only with the powerful but with the powerless; if
you retain the ability to imagine yourself into the lives of those
you not have your advantages, then it will not only be your
proud families who celebrate your existence but thousands
and millions of people whose reality you have help changed.
We don't need magic to transform our world; we carry all the
power we need inside ourselves already; we have the power
to imagine better.  - JK Rowling

Vices today trump the values this country is
blessed with.  Our President has been
broadcasting unprecedented dangerous vices
and failing to be the great deal maker.  

Greater division in income reveals that 1% of
the people are getting 82% of today’s wealth.   
We have gone from being a world leader to a one
of an unhinged bully.  True leaders embody
values not vices. Corporate welfare is at a
all time high as the powerful pillage our
prosperity.  Such widespread inequality and
injustice brings terror to our very American
spirit. 

How long can ignorance trump wisdom while
criminals profit and we penalize the unfortunate?  
Progress happens with cooperation not coercion,
fairness not extortion, humanity not
insanity.

This unethical administration only understands
the price not the value of things. Unfortunately
the few will not share with those in need.  
Freedom dies once the few hoard the
opportunities of many.

Let’s "make" not "fake news" demonstrating our
courage to do what is right. Counter these horrors
with kind acts and hope. Otherwise we will
encounter our darkest nightmare.

A green awakening is on the horizon showing our
appreciation for people, and our blessed country. 
A reborn American wisdom and morality is gaining
momentum. A sunrise of virtues is illuminating new
purpose, potential and, possibilities. Please help
restore justice, civility and decency so we Americans
may celebrate that values trump vices.
