I'm old enough to remember a time when we worked feverishly to demand rules and regulations (such a misrepresented word these days) for clean air, clean water, voting rights and equality.
We made great strides and great mistakes and learned from them all.
We cherished the strides and eventually somewhere down the line we tried to correct the mistakes.
Most things in life can be corrected.
Then there are the things that can not be undone.
I hear people say, yes we have fallen off a proverbial cliff but the union is strong and it will survive.
I'm not so sure anymore.
I fear we have opened Pandora's Box and there is no going back.
Basic common courtesy has been replaced by a sense of me first.
Is that what Make America Great Again meant?
America first no matter what the cost?
That sounds more like America the spoiled brat to me.
"If you don't do what I want, I'll pick up my marbles and go home".
That's not being strong, that's being childish.
I get the distinct feeling that if this president had his way the G7 would be the G4 and would consist of;
Not democracies but dictatorships.
Not allies but demigods.
Everyday now we are witness to every rule in the Constitution being bastardized or broken.
Spun into something it was never meant to be.
Yet no one is held accountable.
I fear like all those little evils that escaped Pandora's Box, we didn't close the box in time...
and time has run out.
We are now faced with the consequences.
The dye is cast.
The genie is out of the bottle
and there is no putting Humpty Dumpty back together again.
But at least there is this.
Have a wonderful weekend...
