Thoughts and Prayers for the US

I’ve got nothing today to say about work, marketing, leadership or the like. Today I want to share my thoughts and prayers for the US.

We were told, this new commandment I give you. Love your God with all your heart and love others as you would yourself. To that end, I’m only going to do positive things today. I’m only going to share happy things.

To all my friends who voted for Hillary and feel a sense of disillusionment, if I haven’t told you lately, I love you.

To all my friends who voted for Trump who feel they’re perceived as hateful, racist idiots, if I haven’t told you lately, I love you.

To all my friends who declined to vote for president because they felt in their hearts there wasn’t anyone worthy, if I haven’t told you lately, I love you.

To all my LGBT friends, my Hispanic, my African American, my any other race, religion or lifestyle friends who feel disenfranchised and that America has just given them the finger, if I haven’t told you lately, I love you. I’m here for you.

To all my friends who voted for recreational marijuana to be legal in California and other states, if I haven’t told you lately, I love you. And I’ll get you Oreos and Taco Bell if you have the munchies. Unless it’s really late or, let’s be honest, inconvenient to me, then you’re on your own. But I love you anyway.

To everyone else out there I don’t know, even those who are destroying the flag (seriously?) and each other from anger and hurt, I love you. But can you please just stop?

I pray that people go out today and do something nice for someone to help heal our country and our hearts. And that we all try to see each other how God sees us–with love and grace.

Love you all!
