In The Spotlight
Now one man is at the pinnacle, as a climber might sit upon the summit of Everest. Inauguration Day will be the best day of his life, but there is no where to go but down. Whether history will vilify or revere him, only time will tell us. I DO believe that psychic transformations occur in the midst of archetypal events such as weddings, funerals and inaugurations. We will all watch for symbols and signs of that transformation with interest, but he will have to earn our Trust.
All through history people have been helping others, facing adversity, taking risks. Study history. You are not alone. This struggle needs to be awakened, refought and refined, improving it, strengthening your self, as it is needed. When have your parents helped others or faced fearsome events? When have you? When were people in the past as afraid for the future as many people are now? When were people of this nation afraid of the government or people in the government?
Like many others, I too have been thinking of this election the past month or so. A lot has been said about the repercussions a Trump presidency will have on immigrants, women, the LGBTQ community, non-Whites…the list is endless. But in this post, I would like to talk about personal matters, and what it meant for a first-time voter like me to vote in the US elections. I have been living in the United States for over seventeen years, but only recently – in April this year – did I apply for citizenship.
