Don your track shoes to run alongside Trump ….
Thinking back on my first run at jogging as a young mother, son Jeff, nine at the time, ran alongside me on my trial loop around the block. I was proudly huffing and puffing and in my mind jogging at great speeds. Suddenly, my son flipped around so that he was jogging backwards, smiling. He outpaced me, running backwards. I gave it my best, but my son ran circles around me. That flashback is how I see Trump, smiling and outdistancing candidates while running backwards.
Whereas our 44th President was more professorial, dipped in gold as he took office, awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in anticipation of greatness, our 45th President launched into orbit from an elevator, into the great unknown, with us onboard.
Talk about jet lag
Google tracks my phone and I can view the data tracking where I have been. It’s not that impressive. I smile to imagine the Google Map of Prez Trump’s journey of his four trips around the sun on Air Force 1, Marine 1, and the countless Presidential Motorcades.
2020, Entering the Unknown
We find ourselves in the middle of another campaign season. Feeling civic, I made my first political contribution ever in response to one of those mailers. It was Melania’s birthday contribution request. Signed a whopping $15 check for birthday wishes and to thank our amazing First Lady.
Your candidate needs your support to win the race.
Cross the Finish Line
I think back on what Trump said as he took office in 2016. He will lead us but it is we who must dream the dreams and work for what we want. Every President needs the trust and spirit of the American people.
Well, it’s running season for the 2020 election. Lace up and cheer on your candidate. Run to the finish line. Vote to realize your ideals and a better America.
