Words Do Matter. That is why I am so furious over President Trump’s use of the word “Shithole” when describing certain countries in Central America and Africa.
- Why does Trump use derogatory words to describe other human beings, organizations that he doesn’t like, and now foreign countries?
- Why do Republicans and Trump supporters put up with this behavior?
I am worried about what this is saying to our children. Will they think this behavior is OK?
I am embarrassed that people around the world, including foreign leaders, see Trump’s behavior as a sign of moral and ethical decay in America.
Yet, I try to remain hopeful that once the Trump train jumps the tracks, that good people will rise up and right our ship of state. I tell myself that it is only a matter of time, but it is so hard to sit by and watch the train wreck happen.
What words are you using to describe the situation that our country is in? And are you hopeful that it won’t be too long until words matter once again?
