Let us walk the path

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

This above all, to the Demo­cratic Party be true, then as fol­lows the night the day, thou canst not then be false to what re­ally is hon­or­able, de­cent, fair and the right path to democ­racy. And hu­mil­ity. Ah yes, hum­ble­ness is next to god­li­ness in the po­lit­i­cal arena.

Has he apol­o­gized for all of the re­ported das­tardly deeds through­out his whole life? Nope. His treat­ment of women is just “locker room talk” … his treat­ment of small-busi­ness peo­ple, well, that’s the “art of the deal” … his treat­ment of mi­nori­ties, well, they’re in­fe­rior be­ings, so what’s the prob­lem here? After all, he’s a star and every­one knows that a star gets to be­have like a thug and get away with it. Oth­er­wise, where’s the fun in wear­ing the crown? What’s the point of be­ing on top if you don’t get to stomp those on bot­tom?

But is this democ­racy?

Let us all walk the path of Do Unto Oth­ers. Let us share what we have equally. Let us all take re­spon­si­bil­ity for build­ing up one an­other, for re­pair­ing our coun­try, for heal­ing the planet and the col­lec­tive hu­man soul.

We are all stars if we shine col­lec­tively for one an­other. MAR­I­ANNE BEASLEY
