Pray For President Trump

Dear Editor,

This letter is difficult to write – very difficult.  Difficult because at of this time of anxiety created by political division and an unwillingness on the part of many to even consider the possibility that our views might be flawed or incorrect.  Difficult because we have lost the art of truly listening to those who think differently than we do and showing them and their ideas the respect they deserve.  Difficult because of self-centeredness and the hardening of our hearts to the struggles of others.  Difficult because the America we once were no longer exists.

With that being said, we all need to practice hope that that our leaders successfully serve others with caring, intelligence, love and compassion.  My ardent wish is that all elected presidents be servant leaders, because that’s when we are successful as a country with no one left behind.

At present, Donald Trump isn’t the type of leader described above, but he is the president.  If you’re a person of faith, pray that he will recognize his shortcomings and limitations (we all have them) and listen to and step back and let the experts in various fields act on their knowledge without interference.  Our future depends upon it.

Bob Kollar
