We the people

We, as a nation are still divided. We have a president who refuses to concede the election. He has every right to challenge some states but he has no proof of election fraud. We, as a nation should not be surprised. The man is a narcissistic who only cares about himself. We, as a nation, have lived through his chaos for four years. He won’t go away quietly and he won’t be gracious. I have watched other presidents who conceded to the winner with grace and class. Maybe DJT should put on his big-boy pants. We, as a nation should be ashamed of what’s going on.

We, the people of Spokane, should also be ashamed of the SRHD. The board needs to be replaced. All of them. We need medical professionals not politicians. If people are so naive they believe that Mayor Woodward didn’t have a say in all of this? I have a bridge to sell going to Hawaii. Her comment about his firing being ‘the best thing she’s ever heard’ made me cringe. Now we have someone the public hasn’t met, who hasn’t spoken publicly. And we now have surges of COVID. I don’t know about anyone else? But my family is tired. What happened to leadership? What happened to class in the way people act? I wear a mask but I don’t go out. My 92-year-old Mom hasn’t been to the store since March but she does play bridge once a month.

We, as a nation and a community need to pull together. We all deserve better than what we’re getting.
