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!
No one is born hating another person because of the color of their skin, or their background or their religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart than hate. ….Nelson Mandela and President Obama
Whether we believe in God or not, we are all in this together, and only small minds of indifference, hate, intolerance of others, fear of the unknown, and a sense of scarcity drive the insecure to seek vengeance on one another. We are all the same under the skin. …K. D. Dowdall
Loving your enemies does not mean you are one with them, it only means you understand with empathy their intolerance to love others who are different. …K. D. Dowdall
Mercy deepens the innate goodness of our human nature, when we see hate, anger, loathe, and intolerance. Mercy is the greater good of the human spirit. ….K. D. Dowdall
This dystopia novel, The Starling, is a fantastically exciting foray into a world, our world, that may exist in the future. The author, Kathy Lauren Miller, uses real scientific possibilities that are on the drawing board of technological advances as we speak.
She carefully crafts two characters, like Jamie, a young girl in an emotional crisis and, by a twist of fate, is transported through time to earth’s dystopian future where humans are dominated by a malevolent AI and various degrees of terrifying humanoids. Jamie is used as bait to draw out free humans who live like Outliers on the hidden fringes of society.
Quinn is a male humanoid, whose internal program has been manipulated by a secret group inside this dystopian world, to make him a little more human. What happens between them defies logic but creates in its path a different way of thinking and hope for the future.
The Starling novel is a fantastically exciting foray into a world that may exist in the future. The writer combines great characters in a futuristic adventure with intrigue, danger, romance that is so realistic you begin to believe this will be our future. It is exceptional because the writer uses real scientific possibilities that are on the drawing board of technological advances. I highly recommend this exciting novel.
