To paraphrase Edmund Burke, "Evil triumphs when good men do nothing". Ever since the last U.S. Presidential Election result that quote has been recirculating in my mind on an almost daily basis as the atrocities of this administration mount up, be it collusion with Russia, trying to repeal Obamacare with no viable replacement, stripping protection from the environment, ripping families apart via deportation, removing anyone that opposes or is investigating Trump, the endless lies and spin, it's just exhausting.
What ties does Trump have with foreign governments and companies? Who to and how much does he owe? Just release your taxes is there's nothing to hide. Ae you scared we'll learn the truth?
After all that sign making (I'd forgotten how toxic those Sharpies can be), I thought it was time for a dog beach visit to clear my head and vent all that Labrador energy.
I'm not planning on having kids anytime soon (Cooper is my boy), but I believe in making sure there's a planet in the future where there's equality, justice, safety, peace, clean water, healthcare, opportunity and the chance to love who you want without prejudice.
If you believe in something, if you feel like this country is going in the wrong direction, it's time to take a stand. Otherwise when you have no rights left then you have no one else to blame but yourself...
