    Editor,

    My heart is heavy seeing the division in our country. The talk of hate and its actions are so out of control. Whether one believes in the Bible and Jesus or not, His words are full of love and wisdom. Romans 3:10, “there is none righteous, no not ONE.” Those that hate President Trump should take a breath and listen to these words, “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them….” President Trump is human and he can make mistakes like all of us. However, He has kept many promises that he ran on to get elected; 1. Freedom of religion for all.

    Donald Trump

    2. Improved the lives of Veterans and stood up for those that protect us from our enemies. 3. He has helped make illegal immigration better by getting other countries to help their own people, and by continuing to stop drugs, human trafficking, and children from making that dangerous trip through the desert. 4. Boosting the economy has helped millions to have hope and to rise out of poverty and seek a better life. 5. Fighting for the lives of unborn children. For those who think Socialism is good, look at history and countries today that are struggling because of socialism. It just doesn’t work.

    Who in the USA are willing to trade their hard fought for freedoms for free stuff? Millions of people who voted for him believe it was a miracle. The Bible says this about hate, I John 2:11, “But he that hate his brother is in darkness and walketh in darkness and know not where he goes, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.” Won’t you join me in this prayer.

    Please help us to see each other as you see us, God, with love, with kindness, with forgiveness. For we are all in this world together and the enemy is just waiting to destroy us if we do not fight hate. How do we do that? It means that people have to make a choice to see truth and reject reacting in hate. I pray that we can all look for ways to unite against hate.
