It’s your Choice!

The United States of America, has a new President, new first family, and everything else that goes along with a new administration.  We may not all agree with who won the election, but it is what it is, and like with other presidents, we just have to wait and see.

The venomous hatred spewing on social media is shocking and disappointing to say the least.  I would think as mature grown-up individuals, the temper tantrums, name calling, screaming and crying would not be as rampant as it actually is.  Unfortunately social media has become a platform for uncivil, disgusting distain sprinkled with many, many unnecessary vulgar words and comments.

I recognize that Facebook and other social media provides individuals the opportunity to communicate their views to many people at one time.  As we have seen in the recent past e.g., “Arab Spring,” such mass communication has led to important political and social changes.

One can disagree in a civilized manner without constantly adding expletives to their comments.  It doesn’t make their comments more meaningful, but instead shows their insecurities and jealousies.

Negativity only perpetuates a person’s propensity to act irrationally but a positive attitude exudes confidence and optimism.  It’s your choice!

    I totally agree. At the very least I believe we should all let the man do his job and if we have an opinion later down the road,then tactfully convey that opinion.

    Nancy, I totally agree as well. We need to get back to taking pride in America. I don’t think enough people travel enough to other parts of our world and how much we have to be grateful for, we are not perfect but we have so much to offer.
