I found the following posting on my Facebook feed and it really spoke to me so I thought I would pass it on:
This is a calling like none we have ever seen before in the history of our country. It is not a calling of conservatives, liberals or independents, but of all Americans. A calling for Americans of all backgrounds, ages, and races to rise in defense of one America. Throughout our history we have fought many battles and defeated external threats to our republic and democracy. For the first time in our history we are faced with an internal threat from our own president. An internal threat from a president who refuses to release his tax returns because it would expose his lies and corruption. A president whose vindictive narcissism determines his every word, action and tweet. A president and an administration that would stoke the fires of hate, anger and fear in turning us against each other to create a vacuum void of hope they would fill with authoritarianism and a dictatorship.
Let us not forget who we are. We are Americans and everything it means to be an American. We are mostly a nation of immigrants and our strength has always been in our diversity. Upon that common ground we embrace the core values of our Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Our love of freedom has always been the bond that has held us together, moved us forward and made us unique. Our power has always been our belief, faith and commitment that we are one nation where all people are created equal with liberty and justice for all.
The loss of all of this and who we are can and will happen as it has in other cultures if we do not heed the call. “United we stand, divided we fall.” has never rung more true. Rise. Rise up. Answer the call. ~ Gary Borgnis, #ChooseTruthOverTrump, #Resist, #Persist, #AnswerTheCall (Feel free to copy, paste and share my post.)
Now more than ever we need to band together and fight to keep our country . It only took Hitler 5 months after he was duly elected by the people for him to take control as a dictator.
