Today we are celebrating Dr. Martin Luther King’s Birthday and as I scrolled my news feed I read shared posts from Facebook friends; mostly about Dr. King messages expressing love, respect, unity, nonviolence, fairness, etc., I couldn’t help thinking about fairness.
Talking about being treated fairly ~ Are we treating our Incoming President Donald Trump fairly?
After all, whether we voted for him or not, Donald Trump won the election as our Commander In Chief, not one time like all the former presidents before him but he was tested 3 times:
1. Traditional election votes.
2. Popular votes, and
3. Electoral votes.
No President, including Bush, was treated with so much disrespect.
January 19, and January 20, 2017, Incoming President Donald Trump is planning to celebrate his winning leadership with American Citizens, his family, and his friends, and what do we do?
Instead of uniting to show the world how powerful America is, we behave like spoiled brats, protesting against someone has won fairly and squarely.
Being a former Viet refugee. I was here in 1975 and I had witnessed upstanding American citizens with intelligence, good hearts, and common sense that have inspired the world, or inspired me, a teenage Viet refugee. Are we conforming to the third world country from which I fled from?
America is a Democratic Republic country, where anyone can be anything that they set their hearts and their minds to be, however, they must do that by the rules, and law and order.
We Viet refugees, the first group that settled here in America in 1975 with only clothes on our back, followed the law and order, and 99.99% of us have succeeded by good work ethics, perseverance, unselfishness and respect for authority.
Most of us didn’t go to America’s College, however, I proudly must say that we have more class, more guts, more courage than some of our 2nd, 3rd and 4th generations. Today our younger generations are book smart but lack common sense.
I am a small business owner, advised by good meaning friends not to voice my opinions because they felt my business would suffer. But you know what? If I do that, I may as well return to where I fled from. There is one thing I value more than anything in the world; FREEDOM. Without freedom, we have nothing. And when we have to hide our feelings and be a “closet supporters” that is the beginning of the end of our FREEDOM.
President Donald Trump is not a perfect man, and NONE of our presidents before him were perfect men. None of us men and women are perfect. Raise your hand if you are and I will recede.
If Dr. Martin Luther King were alive today, he would be crying out of shame because it has been 49 years since he was assassinated, and Americans still have not learned our lessons.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY Dr. MARTIN and I proud to call DONALD TRUMP my President, am I am sure you would too.
My family will be in DC to celebrate our incoming President’s Inauguration. If you, President Donald Trump can give up your billionaire lifestyle and sacrifice so much to serve American people, the least we, the Coronado family could do is to be there and show our support.
GOD BLESS AMERICA.
LAND OF THE FREE.
HOME OF THE BRAVE!
