Why is “the bad man” winning?

Ive recently been asked to speak to the idea that our children are manifesting real fear and anxiety over the Trump presidency.   My response has been pretty short, as will this long overdue post.  Children mimic behaviors.  Its how humans learn.

For many of us, 45 is a disappointment, a failure of a system we’ve been taught to believe in. The fact that we have continued to invest in this system speaks volumes about the power ancestral influence, and the power of terrorism.

45 should not give us nightmares. 45 is the obvious continuation of American values. Foreign and domestic policy has favored the Bold over the careful, it has favored power over Justice, survival of the system over the Humanity that system metes out.

I am telling my sons that their future is in their own hands as mine is and as my grandfather’s before me was. There will be challenges, there will be obstacles, some of them will be very hard to detect. Your job is to constantly update your internal software and if you fall, to fall forward.
