We have all seen them. The large crowds gathered around the world displaying their dissatisfaction with our duly elected 45th president. Some called them women’s marches, some just marches to show that they do not like our choice. I believe they said there were demonstrate in over 60 countries. Plus the hundreds of thousands that marched on Washington DC here, saying they represented women. It has been quite a spectacle since the election. The news media concentrated on the fact that these groups in foreign countries disliked our choice. Of course, those people could only base their decision on what they had seen of Trump in the news media, and we all know that the media, for the most part, did everything the could to make him look as horrible as possible. No wonder they hate him.
But here’s what I see. I see how much everyone looks to the United States as a beacon of hope in the world. Have you ever – EVER – seen a demonstration in any other country over a leader chosen in some foreign country? Have you ever seen them even care who got elected in any country but their own? One step further – have you even ever seen demonstrations like this in a country when their own leader was chosen? I, for one, have not. Maybe it’s because the media chose not to report it here, but I would say it’s because it rarely happens.
What this says to me is that the whole world is watching the USA. The whole world wants to see us succeed. The whole world looks to us to be the moral guide – the standard bearer for democracy and freedom. The whole world depends on us to show the right stuff. We are their beacon of hope.
And I like that! I love that! America is a singularly unique country, and is a light setting on a hill for all to see. Maybe Mr Trump isn’t the best choice we could have made. He obviously has some character flaws that need attention, but who doesn’t? Any one of you? Maybe he speaks his mind a little too much instead of being politically correct all the time. How many of you are sick of politically correct? I am. And perhaps he is not the perfect person to lead the free world. His election has shown us that the whole world is looking to us, the United States for answers. And I for one, am delighted to see that reaction.
So the next time you tell yourself he is not your president, I have some bad news for you. if you’re living in this country, he is. I see him working on fulfilling campaign promises at a faster clip than any president I can ever remember. The world is watching. They have long admired the peaceful transition of power that takes place here. Who is really hurting our image now?
In all of this, I have a mandate. My duty, as a Christian, is to pray for my leaders and those in authority,and that’s what I am going to do. Got Bless the USA!
