The public that are horrified by the current president seem to be a lot like me. I watch the daily news hoping to hear that the disruptions and conspiracy theories being spread are nonsense. I hope to hear from our Republican leaders as well as our Democrat leaders that President Trump’s ideas are against everything precious to our country’s safety and security. And I hope to hear from our former leaders who dedicated their lives to preserve the integrity of our democracy.
There is a huge need for us senior citizens to reclaim our power and voice our concerns. We have been taught that democracy needs educated and participating citizens. That means us. We cannot wait for others to vote or write letters or call our legislators. Right now, many youths are starting to get involved in the political process and are organizing to protect and change our future. But, these same youths need to hear from us and feel our support. I will be writing letters, contacting elected officials and voting. What will you do?
