In which Helen finds her voice again

FROM HELEN:

Margaret, I watched that jackass in Cleveland and lost my voice. I saw a Presidential nominee paint a picture of an America I donít know and have never known. I tried to respond but I couldnít find the words. I watched his wife lie to a reporter saying that she had written every word of her speech. When she hadnít, I watched the media say it wasnít her fault. I tried to respond but couldnít find the words. I listened to children who have known only lifeís riches praise a father who had made his riches by cheating others. I tried to respond but I couldnít find the words. I watched an audience shout down a Senator when he told them to vote their conscience. I tried to respond but I couldnít find the words. I watched amazed as Trump got more popular rather than less and truly I couldnít find the words. But last night, I watched a battle-worn President who had been unjustly treated and unfairly maligned rise above it all. I watched Barack Obama, my President, paint a different picture, a beautiful picture of hope, kindness, forgiveness and humility. And now I am going to respond because I have indeed found my words. Screw you, Mr. Trump. You better give your heart to Jesus because your butt is mine and I plan to kick your ass from the bottom floor to the top floor of Trump Tower and then down again. As I live and breathe, you will never be President. Never.


It gets better. https://margaretandhelen.com/
