USA heartbeat the pulse of freedom
as we think about what’s going on in America, in the world today all these shootings, all these mass instances of shooting, the vitriolic rhetoric, the hatred and the Guile that’s being spewed out by our politicians, and by everybody with a microphone.
it’s amping up this hatred and this vitriolic rhetoric aimed at one another. And that’s feeding this violence,
Let’s dial it down. Let’s, cool our jets here. And I’m not taking anything away from the shooting in Highland Park, Illinois. It’s terrible. We mourn with the community, we mourn with the families. But we have to do something as a nation to say, Okay, what do we need to do to get a handle on this hatred and violence that’s eating up our country?
There’s a number of things we can do. I think one of the things is hold people accountable.
Number two, spend more money on mental health.
Number three, give the police the freedom and the support they need to do their jobs.
Number four people who commit crimes need to be held accountable.
In New York City, they did something called broken windows policing. If somebody did a minor crime, they put them in jail. As you put people in jail, they’re not committing more serious crimes. Violence. negative actions need to have bad consequences. And if they don’t, the bad actions continue.
But one of the things we need to do as a nation is to endeavor to treat one another kinder. We get on that on the news and the politicians are just targeting each other and and the President of the United States, every chance he get even goes overseas to criticize the Supreme Court, another branch of our federal government.
There’s no teamwork, there’s no unification, there’s no leadership, there’s no let’s come together together as Americans. We’re not seeing that in Washington, DC.
That’s one of the things that needs to happen. But we as Americans need to step up the kindness and treat one another better.
Our hope is that as we dial down this hatred and rhetoric, I think we’ll see this violence started to decrease. And our politicians, instead of being more concerned about the political posturing they’re doing, as they’re lobbying volleys at one another.
They need to dial it down. And they the country needs to see our leaders come together for the good of America.
As President John F. Kennedy once said, and he was a Democrat, and he said, let us endeavor not to do what is right for the Republicans…… let us endeavor not to do what is right for the Democrats. Let us endeavor to do what is right for America.
And that’s what we need to do. This is USA heartbeat, the pulse of freedom. We mourn with the people in Highland Park, Illinois, and we beseech Americans to treat one another Kinder
