MegTuite2015 I’m not the only one who was blindsided by the results of the presidential election. The last few months have smudged together into an underlying plague of fatigue, horror, backpedaling, and disbelief. 

We don’t know what’s ahead. Politics have always subsisted on subterfuge. Politicians blather on through debates about what they plan to do. But Trump has already dropped bombs literally before he’s been sworn in. He is a product of ‘the unsaid’. He has boasted of racism, sexual assault, mocking the handicapped, not paying taxes, and creating a dictator’s dream of a cabinet with the CEO of Exxon, accepting money from David Duke, the head of the KKK, and hiring openly racist marionettes as part of his dream team. 

President Obama was shot down again and again by the Senate and the House whenever he worked to have a bill passed. Why? Because of an inherent racism that rakes through this country. The white male power-monger is not going out without attempting to destroy or undermine any and all groups who don’t fit his tiny package of the 1% wealthy who hold steady supporting those who will keep them from paying taxes, which is WHAT A SURPRISE! The same white male entrepreneurs who are hefting each other up like two guys in a gym spotting one another as they bolster and compound their (money-belts) of girth. Not a lot of guess work in this monopoly game.

I am thankful for all of you who are part of this video and those who are in there in spirit! What a positive fountain of love, light, and hope christens 2017 in all of your powerful messages! I end with some quotes on what ‘hero’ translates into by some of the truth-tellers! LOVE YOU ALL! xo

 

 
“In a room where
people unanimously maintain
a conspiracy of silence,
one word of truth
sounds like a pistol shot.”
Czesław Miłosz

“I am of certain convinced that the greatest heroes are those who do their duty in the daily grind of domestic affairs whilst the world whirls as a maddening dreidel.”
Florence Nightingale

“A dead man who never caused others to die seldom rates a statue.”
W.H. Auden

“So long as men worship the Caesars and Napoleons, Caesars and Napoleons will duly rise and make them miserable.”
Aldous Huxley, Ends and Means

“Yes, there are plenty of heroes and heroines everywhere you look. They are not famous people. They are generally obscure and modest people doing useful work, keeping their families together and taking an active part in the health of their communities, opposing what is evil (in one way or another) and defending what is good. Heroes do not want power over others.”
Edward Abbey, Postcards from Ed: Dispatches and Salvos from an American Iconoclast

“What makes a hero? Courage, strength, morality, withstanding adversity? Are these the traits that truly show and create a hero? Is the light truly the source of darkness or vice versa? Is the soul a source of hope or despair? Who are these so called heroes and where do they come from? Are their origins in obscurity or in plain sight?”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Notes from Underground, White Nights, The Dream of a Ridiculous Man, and Selections from The House of the Dead
