Do We Have the Moral Fortitude to Stand Up ?

Remember, each one who stands up, reduces the power of evil, because evil cannot live in the light of day.

So, do we have the moral strength to stand for what this country was founded for, even though not perfect. Inasmuch, as all men are created equal and thus, bigotry, racism, should not tolerated. We are all the same under the skin. Donald Trump, who has no moral authority to lead, does not believe in Democracy, does not stand for what America is suppose to stand for? It is for us to stand up to people who hate others for their religion and the color of their skin.

Remember that these  White Supremacists, White Nationalists, Neo-Nazis, and racist hate God’s children, made in his image.  This is how it began in Germany. This is how it begins in America!

    1. Thank you Felicia, we have to take a stand, because when good people remain silent that is when bad things happen – like Nazis. We can have empathy for them, but the can’t bring their hate with them. Karen

    1. Thank you Professor French, you are among the writers that do believe we must stand up, but many, although they believe, don’t choose, at this time to speak out. I do understand. I am proud of the CEOs that have showed moral courage, because it is difficult for many to speak. Thank you for your moral courage! K D 🙂


  1. Thank you Jean and I wish there were more writers and bloggers that will stand up, like you, Charles, Felicia, and Kim. I see there are now 13 senators who have now stood up and they are courageous in my eyes. K. D.


  2. The beauty of it is the apparent “shock” of the alt right as it realized that while they were tucked away in their bunkers counting their entitlements, most politicians, most white Americans, the New South and law enforcement stopped being on their side a long, long time ago…
