Trump supporters show what they want

I couldn’t help but notice the joy and the smiles when observing the Trump rally in Whitefish on Monday evening. I didn’t see any sign that painted the opposition in an angry light. All I saw, from the Trump camp, was what they wanted for the next four years.

In contrast, the opponents with their slogans that included expletives and music laden with foul language appeared to be angry. Wouldn’t it be refreshing if the Democrat camp created a vision for the next four years like “Biden2020” or “Our best days still lie ahead” rather than yelling and displaying profanities?

I read once that “tearing down, or painting so intense a picture of misery and injustice does not cause one to change the world. Instead, arousing in folks a sense of their own capacities for accomplishment and helping them to realize their own great and generous hearts with which to love others, inspires change.”

May we always choose to inspire others through kindness rather than anger.
