I feel the need to apologize to all you folks from around the globe who’ve looked up to us Americans because of our system of governing ourselves, caring for those in need and trying to protect the entire free world from the horrors of inhumane communities. I’ve been proud to be an American since I began to realize how wonderful we could be for ourselves and the entire world. We vote tomorrow for a new president and the shameful campaign leading up to this day will be over. I’m not sure the pain will go away and I know we’ll be forever scarred. You guys and gals who have admired us from afar deserved better than what we demonstrated. We’ve set some standards to be envied, in a good way, by some less fortunate folks. We fought for and attained a social status for all to be proud of, to be enjoyed and protected by us and revered by others. I thought we we were excellent examples or respect for all people of all races, colors and creeds. The word “together” has always meant a great deal to me. Together we’ve attained a stature we could never get to alone; not in our relationships, our families, our communities and, of course, our government. Hey, look what we’ve accomplished here at MAO together.
I’m apologizing because this is a government OF the people FOR the people. So I’m part of it. I promise to do whatever I can to never again experience such a sad, shameful expression of what Democracy should never be.
Please forgive me and all those who unwittingly allowed this to happen.
