As I listened to Barack Obama give the eulogy for John Lewis, I realized many things that I miss by not having him around. #1 of course is his ability to give a cohesive and pointed speech. The man is probably the most eloquent speaker I have heard in my lifetime, mostly because he doesn't waste his words on trivial points that make no difference. In his eulogy, he recognized John Lewis for who he was and how he dedicated his life to the cause of liberty and justice for all.
It is time that we all recognize the fact that People of Color contribute a great deal to our well-being and have for generations. Some of our best scientists. and inventors were black. To simply say that you, by way of the color of your skin are superior to anyone, is totally ridiculous.
How would you judge someone if you didn't know their skin color? By the words that come out of their mouth? By their actions toward others? Or do you simply feel you are superior because you are white? I simply don't understand the thinking behind this.
To hear the words that came out of Barack's mouth was beauty in itself and he pointedly brought out where we are in relation to how badly this country has been damaged by the Republicans presently in office. This must be stopped and I mean stopped cold in it's tracks.
Herman Cain, a black man, dead in his tracks because he denied Corona.
Louie Gohmert, Mr. Dumbass personified, "I know more than the scientists and won't wear a mask"! Corona positive!
I am waiting for DJT to come down with it and when he does, I hope every one of the 150,000 dead from his negligence and stupidity come back to haunt him in his sleep.
But I digress.
Barack Obama was the most eloquent President that we have had in modern times. He boosted our stature in the eyes of the world. He was widely accepted among world leaders and citizens. To see and hear what followed him is truly sickening. I believe we must elect his partner for the 8 years of his presidency, Joseph Biden, and get this train back on tracks.
As always, may you find peace in your world.
