I believe everything in life happens for a reason. It’s up to us to give it a meaning that serves us to grow stronger.
Let’s take Donald Trump for example: a man that seeks conflict, promotes separation and vilifies people on a regular basis. A man who wants to militarize streets, build walls and keep people apart. A man spreading fear all over the world.
When such a man becomes the President of the United States of America, I ask myself: “How can this make us grow stronger?”
I see his presidency as an opportunity, not just for Americans but for everyone around the world.
An opportunity to reaffirm our values, stand up for our rights and what we believe in. But also an opportunity to see our own misbehaviour, when we are the ones building walls between each other. Every time we judge others for their way of living, physical appearance or cultural background. Every time we put people in boxes just because they are different and we don’t understand them. Everytime we belittle others just to feel superior.
Let’s take this opportunity to make these walls fall.
Let’s take this opportunity to come together, more and more.
There is no politics that could threathen that.
Maybe, eventually, he’s going to make US great again.
