President Trump has clearly put a lot of time and effort into laying out his plans ahead of changing Israel’s capital to Jerusalem. He rationalizes his reasons for these changes by demanding change. 70 years with no change can push anyone’s button. However, the ramifications to innocent civilians all over the world, starting with those in Jerusalem are unsurmountable. This action will also place targets on the backs of every American.
It is implied that President Trumps travel ban restrictions are meant to protect our country from those who may want to do America harm. While there may be some underlying truth within this plan, it’s unfair to assume that all travelers included in the ban would mean to do America harm.
It’s no easy task being burdened with the safety of a country while maintaining relationships with the heads of other countries. Priorities and loyalties are difficult to determine. Citizens throughout the world are on edge not knowing who and what to trust. We need however, to keep it together. Don’t submerge yourself in anger or resentment for the decisions being made by those in power.
Find a way to be a part of the solution for the greater good. Share ideas for resolve. Become a intellectual hero who knows the value of everyone understanding that we all matter.
Change is a necessary evil but knowing when and how to make change can be a problem. Unfortunately, we don’t always get to be a part of the process but are victims of the aftermath.
