The LuLac Edition #4,118, July 31st, 2019


Our “Write On Wednesday” logo.
This week’s Write On Wednesday comes from a local religious leader who lays out a compelling case as to why Donald Trump is bad for America. She’s right.


Editor: Until these last two years, I thought the president of the United States took an oath to uphold the Constitution. It seems I was mistaken.
We all fail to live up to our profound Constitution, but we want to and we try, some more, some less, but Mr. Trump disgraces it. He has not made America great again. He has taken away our greatness, or at least he is desperately trying to take away our greatness, our goodness and our efforts to live up to our ideals.
How does he manage to fool so many good people? If one studies the sociopath, they know there are three among many characteristics that are extremely dangerous to themselves and to others. They are extreme narcissism, no conscience and the ability to fool people and leave a trail of shattered, broken lives behind them.
He needs our compassion and help to get help. He needs to be in a good hospital, not the Oval Office.
I could not help but rubberband back to my childhood at St. Nicholas in Wilkes-Barre and I was reminded of the dear, good German Sisters who taught me. They used to tell me how they once loved Hitler and thought he was great for Germany. That is of course until the killing of 6 million Jews left them aghast. They finally saw through Hitler to their painful sorrow.
I hope we Americans won’t need another example like this of man’s inhumanity to man before we wake up and see through Donald Trump. We already are seeing something akin at the border. May God have mercy on us all. We are crying down the wrath of God upon us if we allow this to happen. Our children and our children’s children deserve a better legacy.
