Moral Leadership Matters
I’m getting ready for the day thinking about the James Comey interview last night. I follow the Russia investigation really closely so there were no bombshell reveals for me. The most notable thing was him saying the president is morally unfit to serve as president. If there’s anything that I agree with Comey about, it is that. I think about this all the time. I am constantly shocked by Trump’s behavior. When I think about my own kids it becomes even more clear that he is leading us astray. Would I accept my sons calling people names on twitter? Would I want them to make blanket statements about entire groups of people like Mexicans being rapists? Do I want them to think it’s ok to lie? Do I want my sons to treat women with no respect? The answer for me is no. Trump isn’t a role model and that disturbs me. I feel sad that we’ve have gotten to a point where it doesn’t matter what someone is saying, only who is saying it. Are they on my team or theirs? Us versus them. We’re all different so it’s critical that we try to find common ground. Trump doesn’t value that at all. It’s one of the main reasons I will be voting in this year’s midterm elections. A change has to begin now and it will take everyone voting according to their values, not with their party.
