Dear President Trump

Loving My Enemy

Dear President Trump.  Impressive words from you.  “We pay solemn tribute to our heroes of the past & dedicate ourselves to building a future of freedom, equality, justice & peace.”  Wonderful words.  I really do pray you mean them.  I pray you will act in all ways to fulfill them in your administration.  But… But… As our Lord says, “The Truth will make you free…”  And after reading some of your writings, listening to you flip flop in your speeches, and denigrate, abuse and insult vulnerable people I come to the conclusion, the truth is, you lie.  I believe loving my enemy is never losing hope that my enemy, you, can change.  Love means never giving up on that hope.  Love, in essence, is the triumph of hope over wisdom and experience.  My suspicious nature makes me wonder if “freedom, equality, justice and peace” are only for certain ‘Americans’ you approve of.  And definitely not for people you call “foreign.” I pray your view of people who deserve your compassion, respect and aid, expands to include those you have previously treated with disdain and cruelty.  I do have hope
