Clin­ton has right qual­i­ties to lead USA

Jamaica Gleaner - - OPINION&COMMENTARY - DON­ALD J. MCKOY don­aldm­ckoy2010@hot­mail.com

THE EDI­TOR, Sir:

TIME AND again, we hear peo­ple say these words: “No­body is per­fect, and we all make mis­takes.” That is true, in­deed, but there are cer­tain things that ought to be seen in our per­son­al­i­ties that will help us to get ahead in life. For ex­am­ple, tol­er­ance, tem­per­ance, pa­tience and hu­mil­ity. We all need them, and they should be part of our daily lives. And with­out them, we will be in for some trou­ble.

I have lis­tened to all the US pres­i­den­tial de­bates be­tween Hillary Clin­ton and Don­ald Trump, and I pre­fer the at­ti­tude of Hillary to Don­ald’s. Hillary seems to be a woman of tol­er­ance and hu­mil­ity, while Don­ald, on the other hand, seems to be lack­ing a great deal in these ar­eas.

I would vote a thou­sand times for a per­son whose life is sealed and stamped with tol­er­ance, tem­per­ance, pa­tience and hu­mil­ity, to lead me, and to be a friend of mine, than one who has such deficits. The world is in dire need of more peo­ple of hu­mil­ity, tol­er­ance, pa­tience and tem­per­ance.

Let’s hope and pray that Hillary Clin­ton will be­come the first fe­male pres­i­dent of the United States. I love her at­ti­tude. She has a pleas­ant coun­te­nance. Trump very sel­dom smiles. Looks are de­ceiv­ing, though.
