Why We Need Donald Trump to Heal the Human Divide

Brilliance is very rarely recognized in its time. Preceding Lincoln, the US had 4 "failure" Presidents, who could not solve the slavery issue. They appeased, instead of taking a stand like Lincoln did. Lincoln was a man ahead of his time, but I think today, he would still be called a racist, even if his proposed 13th amendment did free the slaves.To Lincoln, this vote preserved the union, which was his ultimate goal. The proposed 13th amendment was a long shot to pass, and it barely did. Seems most white people didn't want to share their seat at the table with Black folk, and there is still that sentiment today.

That was over 150 years ago. Oddly, Lincoln was not even considered a great President during his time. Even most of his own party thought he was a Neanderthal, a failure in marriage, business and life. He was homely, had a "crazy" wife, and was too soft on his generals. He was constantly compared to George Washington, and couldn't possibly live up to the challenge. But Lincoln knew it was the first step; that others behind him would use as a stepping stone to propel the union forward "with malice toward none, with charity for all"

Nothing is ever perfect. Not even success in the time of "change" because progress is never ending. Equity and equality is never ending. As long as there are weak leaders, and people in power who lead from fear, not Love, to oppress others, there will always be work to do.

We have been sitting on a great volcano, and some of us have been enjoying the sunshine. Now that volcano is erupting, and those people are wondering where the divide is coming from, who is bringing it forward, and how can we can make it go away peacefully. Well, the divide has always been there, and the class systems of equality are going through the same revolutions that created our countries the way we now know them to be. It won't go away peacefully, because the ones who hold the power don't wish to share it. Therefore, this revolt is just beginning.

Trump will be the catalyst for the beginning of this awakening. It will get worse, before it gets better. History shows this pattern time and time again, and human beings Love to follow patterns. So be aware of the signs, and surround yourself with people who wish to embrace change, tear down old paradigms, and include everyone in a stand for humanity at its greatest hour.

We are all one, we are all connected, and we will all someday die. Yet that connection has a significant impact, even in death.So choose to live with a dignified purpose! Include all of those who simply want to be heard, understood, respected, accepted and Love with all their hearts.

With malice toward none, with charity toward all...
