Hi everyone. Had I planned things out better, I wouldn’t be writing this from my bedroom. Back in November, I was looking at attending a Women’s march in Washington, D.C. or Austin, Texas. D.C. was immediately out of the question due to expensive flights and hotels. My second best option was driving or flying to Austin. I eventually decided against it too. I have bills to pay and I was laid off from my job in October. There was a march held in El Paso on Friday afternoon. There’s another one planned for this afternoon. I’ll let you know if I attend.
Some of you might be thinking Trump already won the presidency and there’s nothing we can do but move on and accept it. I vehemently disagree with that. Many Americans refuse to accept him as the 45th U.S. president. I dislike his actions as a human being for several reasons. I don’t like how he treated a disabled reporter. I don’t like how he thought it was OK to grab a woman’s private area. I don’t like how he treats women like second class citizens. I don’t like how he gets away with not paying taxes. I don’t like how he’s treated minority tenants, especially African Americans. I don’t like how he’s acted towards Jews, Mexicans and Muslims. My maternal great grandparents came from Mexico. They helped build this country and its railroad. How can I like or respect someone who shows so much hatred towards Mexicans? He says he wants to ‘make America great again’ but for who? What does this really entail? He thinks he can do or say whatever he wants just because he’s rich. Are we supposed to forget his past? Does it magically disappear now that he’s the president? Will he really change his evil ways? Nobody is perfect and everybody makes mistakes. People usually don’t change either. It isn’t a mistake if you keep showing your true colors over and over again. I’m pretty sure Trump’s presidency leaves behind a lot of doubt and questions worldwide. I keep asking myself if I’m still proud to be American. The answer is yes I still am. I’m proud of being able to exercise my First Amendment Right to protest peacefully if I’m unhappy. I’m grateful I’m able to express myself here in this blog. God bless America! God help us all!
