Writing. It clarifies. It calms. It calls. 

I continue my journey to understand the coup that has happened in America, destroying to the Western World’s amazement: democracy. Yes, we are a democratic republic, but the President of the United States is gathering his powers -against “others” by spreading fear and -against democracy by organizing all power within the White House, a model after the President’s hero: Putin [and guided by Bannon, Miller]. That is how I see it, and I am caught in a sense of disbelief. 

I know I join many, many of my educated friends in this sad call of thoughts we share through writing.

While reading poetry under the #WorldPoetryDay hashtag, many were of the same mind, but angry. I saw many others sharing hope and humor. One included spine poetry– taking the spine of book titles in an order for a poem. That inspired me to do the same as another way to express my hope that the tales of our founding fathers, of whom we seem to have forgotten in this show of American politics, will be a circle unbroken: that our people, our elected officials, and our Constitution will prevail, unbroken since the 1776 dream in America began.

What do you think? How do you cope with the ongoing crisis?

Update: I’ve already received an answer from my PLN, Scott Glass, and it’s prefect: Develop Good Heart, Active Voice.

Thanks Scott!   Absolutely “made my day!”
