With the election ever approaching, I am nervous. I can't watch the news. Facebook is unbearable. I know I'm to have faith in Christ, and I'm clinging to it because humanity leaves me...mad. Cerebral Palsy has given me empathy, and sometimes I wish I had the nerve to say what I felt without feeling guilty if I've hurt your feelings. I know God will take care of me, but I worry for others. Maybe I shouldn't care. Maybe I should take care of myself, and say f*** you to the rest. It's the Trump playbook. Give me your huddled masses needn't apply. Maybe we should all pray for a silver spoon or be born normal. No need to worry about the future, or who wants to get over on you. I'm angry and hurt. We talk about praying in schools, yet we don't display Christian love there. Bullying and suicide attempts. What if we displayed decency. The most basic fundamental. Being decent displays a love that speaks volumes. Christ is decent. Christ is good. Christ is great. Bullying didn't get me because I have siblings who defend my value. Some do not. Christ implores us to defend the less fortunate. Do we? My heart hurts because I see a nation buckling to self-will rather the good of all.
My goal today is to be kind to one another. Smile or give a compliment. My friend Carrie has a great sense of self.
