What is ‘weakness?’ Weakness is the inability to look past one’s fears and to act for the best of us all. Trump supporters seem to be of single mind: they want to keep away things that scare them, like black and brown people. They are afraid of losing what little they already have. That is in their own words, not mine.

Strength is shown in the ability to not be afraid, to understand and foster all beliefs and positions. That is what ‘liberals’ like me believe in. We want all voices heard, so that our democracy can truly represent the best of what we can be.

Until we can all get more in touch with our ‘liberal’ side, America will continue to be just adequate, not great.
