Can’t We All Just Get Along? 3 Quick Observations From A Peacemaker!


If you know me, I’m a peacemaker and I really don't care for confrontation so when I hear about protests going on about Trump’s victory I’m a little troubled by it.  I thought for blogging purposes I would share 3 quick observations of what I believe is challenging for a person like me who asks the question – can’t we all just get along?  


  1. It appears that the losing team is throwing a hissy fit.
    I may be wrong but it seems to me that the protesters are simply throwing a big hissy fit about losing.  In life, when we lose we can be sore losers or graceful losers.  If we lose because we were cheated, then we have a cause to be upset but from what I observed, Trump won fair and square.  If I were the coach of this protest team, I would sit my team down and I’d tell them to wipe away the tears, lift your head up high and to go back to work.  In 4 years they can try again.  It’s how the game is played! 
  2. Have people always been this crazy? 
    Question – have people always been this crazy?  Does God simply shake his head at us sometimes and sigh?  I saw people on the news crying uncontrollably and threatening to move to another country.  Seriously?  It’s not the end of the world.  If Trump is that horrible we can fire him in 4 years or even sooner if he breaks the law.  If he ends up being a good or even ok president then all of the crying and moving will seem really silly wont it?
  3. Donald Trump’s got a big job ahead of him. 
    I know one thing, being the President of the United States has got to be the toughest job ever! Sure you get to vacation a lot but the pressure has got to be unreal.  Donald Trump has just got himself elected to the sit in the pressure cooker that is the presidency and he’s got an absolute ton of work ahead of him.  I pray that his health, his mind and his heart is prepared to lead a nation and as he says “Make America Great Again!”  

If by chance you were offended by this blog, I sincerely apologize in advance since that was not my intention.  I’m just a guy who is scratching his head and wondering why people get all worked up about stuff.  I believe God’s pretty much got all of this anyway and that we are blessed to live in a country where we get to make a choice on who leads.  How cool is that?  


Peace out!

    Excellent advice

    Yes why can't we all get along? That is the 64$ question this day and I am like you confounded by what I see or do not see. Time to work together.
