“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.” — John Lennon
When the world is led by people who lack empathy, it will never live as one, except maybe in death by nuclear annihilation or by starvation from global warming.
President Donald Trump continues to demonstrate his total lack of empathy. Most of our Republican congressmen support Trump so they demonstrate the same. When words and actions disagree, actions are always the truth.
Trump’s recent action rescinding DACA, which could lead to the deportation of 800,000 people, demonstrates his lack of empathy. He says he has “great love” for Dreamers, but his actions say differently.
Never miss a local story.
These Dreamers may be our best residents or model citizens. Dreamers have risked their lives in Houston and some are fighting for our country in the military.
So why do the elected leaders of our country not care about people, about our planet, about solving problems for all, about caring?
Oh, you say they do care?
They care about getting re-elected at any cost. That cost may be the ultimate price for all of us who dream of a world where we could live as one.
