Souls are STUNNED

by the absence

of humanity

and

civility.

We are cheated and deceived by the fraudulent,  false FB/Twitter lives
that people create for their “audience”.

X

Showing UP with empathy
and
awareness

IS

living
an authentic and bountiful real life.

X

Yes, it is a risk to enter the realm of living – the uncertainties of the unknown!
Yet, one ONLY blooooms by loving and being loved with integrity.
Oh, the adventure of LIVING
is to BECOME/ WELCOME
ALL the things YOU are!
LIFE can breathe and RISE with the LIGHTHOPE of civility.

NOTICE HIS BODY LANGUAGE

By folding one or both arms across the chest,
a barrier is formed that is an unconscious attempt
to block out what we perceive
as a threat or undesirable circumstances.
The arms fold neatly across the heart and lungs regions
to protect these vital organs from being injured,
so it’s likely that arm-crossing is inborn.

X

Men do this when they feel insecure around another male.
In their famous 1960 presidential debate,
Richard Nixon crossed his arms
when talking to John F. Kennedy off the air,
because, as his biographer noted, Nixon
always felt insecure around “Ivy league types,”
even though he was Vice President
at the time and had international stature.

Donald Trump’s Nuclear-War Threat

http://www.newyorker.com/news/john-cassidy/donald-trumps-nuclear-war-threat
“…Whether Trump’s statement was planned or not,
As a number of observers quickly pointed out,
it echoed the warning that President Harry Truman issued
to the imperial Japanese government on August 6, 1945,
shortly after the Enola Gay,
a U.S. Air Force B-29 Superfortress bomber,
had dropped a nuclear bomb on Hiroshima,
killing about seventy thousand people.
“If they do not now accept our terms,
they may expect a rain of ruin from the air,
the like of which has never been seen on this Earth,”
Truman said, in a radio address from the White House.
Three days later,
the United States dropped another nuclear bomb,
this time on Nagasaki,
killing another thirty-five thousand people…”

Rarely mentioned in the criticisms of this speech was the aspect that I found most disturbing. It’s that he claimed the entire crowd as among his supporters. “You made it possible,” he crows about his winning the election, as though he was speaking to a hand-picked crowd of supporters. And he was rewarded by loud cheers. He certainly wouldn’t have done this in front of a crowd that wasn’t made up either of handpicked supporters or, as it was, in front of a crowd of mostly white men and boys. We know there were people out there who didn’t vote for him, voted for his opposition, but he makes it plain that’s not who he’s speaking to. People are criticized for saying “He’s not MY president.” But the fact is, he agrees with them.

The blatant divisiveness of this, where he makes it plain that he’s only the president of those who support him, is becoming accepted by an increasingly cynical population. But if this becomes our reality, this nation really won’t last all that much longer in any worthwhile way.

Please also refer to President Obama’s election night speech in 2008 when he starts out by talking to the people who didn’t vote for him and promising try his best to be their president too.
