When I lived in St Petersburg, Fl the Gulf War (if you want to call it that was happening. I worked in downtown Tampa which is very near MacDill AFB. Because the war was being directed from that location George W often came to the area. One time when he came I went to the street with a chalkboard and wrote the ABC's on it and pointed to the letters as Bush Jr drove by in a long stream of Burgundy Limos. I say him turn as they passed and saw the realization dawn on his face and another person in the Limo.
A few days ago people protested the lack of pussy power in opposition to Donald Trump. I saw a woman with a sign that said something like look at all the signs with the correct spelling. I laughed. Being superior by being smarter has always been my caveat. But this time I felt guilty. I had seen Donald Trumps son Barron and thought, "I wonder what is wrong with him?" I realized how difficult it must be to be thrust into a a role like the one he is in when he hasn't mastered the world he was in yet. A child being ridiculed by so many. I am not a Donald Trump fan but I am a human and I have paused to look at my role in what is happening.
When we belittle others they usually act in defense. It is a rare person who is able to show grace in situations where they feel threatened and despite the fact that these people are unable to view others with respect does not mean we should do the same. I do believe that there is a time for everything and sometimes mimicking another s behavior can be a catalyst for dawning realization. However, it works both ways. If I don't like elitism and I act like an elitist by belittling another person am I paving a way to awareness and understanding or building a wall to it?
I hope that I will learn to not be what I don't want others to be. I will still speak up but hope to not give up my humanity to be right, to show myself better than another being. We are all here to learn and to evolve. And yes we feel victimized by behaviors of others who we believe have power over and when we witness, there is sometimes a dawning of awareness. I don't judge myself for what I have done in the past. I don't judge others for what they do now. I do hope to grow and move deeper into myself everyday.
I have to say that we grow through the moments in our lives and that moment back in St Pete was perfect as is this moment in our story as a nation. I was called to do what I did just as all of you are called. And I have grown since then. We can all choose something different than what it is we don't want. We can stand in our power, in who we are, without becoming an enemy to ourselves or others.
