Long Live The Truth-Tellers!

The current President of the United States believes that there is nothing wrong with sexual harassment.

 

Before he was elected he proudly boasted with other laughing men, “Just grab them by the p*say.”

 

Even then many women (and men) openly praised and supported him.

 

High and intoxicated with their momentary sense of power

 

They looked the other way

 

Denying the reality of who he is, what he stands for, and who he stands against.

 

Truly I have come to realize that some people, even whole groups of people, will openly participate in violating and demeaning women, which often leads to assaulting and destroying them and their dreams

 

And they will do it proudly, often with a twisted mob mentality

 

Even as it brings harm to themselves, to their children, and to many others.

 

Because it is easier to believe in a lie and a liar

 

Than it is to own one’s power when you’ve been told that you have no power – and you believe it –

 

Than it is to face the truth with dignity and with voice.

 

Yet, long live the truth-tellers.

 

The ones who have raised their voices

 

And who have put their lives and livelihoods on the line for what is right and just

 

They have made this world a much better place for all of us to be

 

And they have empowered some of us to be much better human beings

 

More, than those around us who will, unfortunately, in the long-run, choose to self-destruct, and take those who are like them (and some who are not) deeper into their own misery and shame.

  1. It’s very hard to fell good about humans in general at this point. Regarding truthtellers, what is the process to instill in children the acceptance of always telling the truth regardless of the circumstance or repercussions? If that becomes the norm, there’s hope for us. Long live the truth tellers, the few that exist! Glad you are still blogging Annalise.

    • Hi Donald. Thanks for commenting. Definitely still blogging. Every chance I get, I teach children the meaning and value of having good ethics and good manners (I work with little children just about every day). Sounds simple, but it works. Hopefully, they will choose the better side of humanity as they grow older.
