Choose wisely

. I have come to the conclusion that you will win the next Presidential election.  Not because of any ability  on your part.  Most likely due to God’s warped sense of  humor.

You, like me, have become a cypher, a hollow dupe for very rich, very powerful and insanely greedy people. You are the cypher of the rich greedy monarch. I stand for the dumb peasant waiting for Jesus to miraculously save me or just take me to heaven when I die at your hands.

Either way you and I are the latest stand ins for a human ‘game of thrones’ as old as time.  We will strut our time upon the stage and then return to dust.

Sometimes, we hope to build a better world. Too often we just want to take what pleasure we can as we stumble through life. We pretend we are in control, masters of our own faith, making a difference.

But then, we are white American males.  We do not know first hand the brutality of skin color, the horror of being raped, the abject fear of being homeless, starving, or dying at the border. We set the rules. We beak those same rules with impunity.

Donald, Jesus didn’t come for us.  He came for our victims. We basically have one choice in life. Do we help Jesus feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, welcome the stranger, heal the sick,  care for those in prison…. or not.

The choice, each day, is up to us. We need to choose wisely. 092119.
