Will you join your voice to the many?

I’m taking a pause about writing tips.

Although some have accused me of changing my blog from a writing blog to a political blog, this is not the case. Writers have used their skill with words to convey emotions, and positions for centuries. So as a writer, I’m using my words to write how I feel about the climate in our country today.  Because I do not consent.

Please don’t remain silent. Silence is consent. 

I do not consent to the power grab happening in Washington DC. Do you?

I do not consent to the violation of our first amendment. Do you?

I do not consent to filling internment camps with crying babies. Do you?

I do not consent to throwing out due process laws? Do you?

I do not consent to the ransom of innocent children for a damn wall? Do you?

I do not consent to keep silent. I will contact Congress, use my voice to speak for what is right. Will you?

The proverbial saying ‘power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely’ conveys the opinion that, as a person’s power increases, their moral sense diminishes.

Is this happening in our country now?

The First Amendment in our Constitution guarantees freedom of the press, yet our government is refusing access to the press. Why? What are they hiding in these child internment camps?

Do we still live in a democracy?

We do not elect dictators, we elect leaders to serve the people. Remind Washington of that. There is no law that requires the separation of children from their parents. 

And even if the new Executive Order prevents future separations of children from their parents, no process has been put in place to reunite those torn asunder.

No matter where you stand on immigration, jailing small children by the thousands or confining families indefinitely, is wrong. There must be a better way.

Don’t know how to contact your Congressman?

Spread the word, share so others can speak out. Please do not remain silent. Tweet, write, call, yell until we get answers. Stand against tyranny.  Our country is a country of due process.

  1. I’m proud of you Jean. I’m Canadian and am having a hard time digesting the current state of what used to be the United States and their abhorrent policies. I don’t care if I never cross the border again. 😦

      1. Lordie, we’re waiting for Mueller. The world is waiting for Mueller. I hope he pulls a Comey and comes out with it just before the midterms to push the blue vote just the same way Comey killed Hilary’s hopes (even if he didn’t intend that to happen) 🙂

  2. I agree 100 percent. Check out my most recent post on this topic at views.eaglepeakpress.com and the preceding one about hope and constructive action. As you say, remaining silent is not the answer. Nor is being demoralized and stuck in frustration until things get back to normal. We must walk and chew gum at the same time–carry on with our lives (writing fiction for example) even as we strive to change what’s happening.

  3. I disagree that you are becoming political. Writers are the ones who by using their voice have liberated countries, one example is India. So Jean your writing will help those unfortunate kids who have no one else to look up to, they are separated from their parents.
