As another election cycle barrels through our landscape the question remains the same
What will change for we the people after the powers that be crown a new winner?
Stagnation rules in DC while main street crumbles
Communities once raised up are now dust bowl towns; suffocated by those who promised to be agents of change
From rural America to the big apple; no city is immune from the disease of government apathy
Every election cycle we the people hear the same slogans and promises from the same characters of elites
The names and faces may change but the outcome is inevitable fixed
And even though nothing changes on the ground, the politicians kept getting paid even when they fail
As if those in charge purposely withhold progress to keep everyone in their place
Their continued failures become the back drop to our lives
How long does it take for “the smartest people in the room” to get the job done?
Politicians railing that they have spent a lifetime in office often have little substance to show for decades of begging for votes and donations
How long does progress take?
What do we the people have to show for our votes?
what has DC done for us?
While their wealth and political ambitions grow we the people sit fixed in their rear view mirror
The future of our democracy appears grim as those in power are exclusively motivated by the all mighty dollar
But fear not
there is hope and it doesn’t/can’t rest in the hands of self obsessed politicians
it rest in all of us
Everyday in every community our fellow citizens are changing the world by making their communities a better place to call home
because change starts at home & on main street first
so before you loose all hope that things can’t get better remember your neighbors; the great citizens who wake up everyday to selflessly commit the greatest act of political change
making communities healthier & safer one act of kindness at a time
my thanks to all of my fellow citizens who are changing the world by changing our streets
Be well all m.m.
