I know some of you hate when I venture away from quilting but it’s my blog and I do have opinions even if I temper what I really want to say so I don’t offend people. I’m sure there are those of you that have visited me for years that I like and respect that don’t agree with me or my political views. So no, I don’t want to offend you but I feel so strongly against Trump it’s hard not to respond in a negative way to everything going on right now.
I’m NOT an activist and what I really want to do is hide in my sewing room for the next 4 years but since that doesn’t seem to be the responsible thing to do when hatred and bigotry (and ignorance) seems to be taking over our country, I’ll just try to be a little kinder in my daily life. I’ll keep making quilts and giving them to those less fortunate, I’ll keep supporting organizations that help the poor, those in need, and yes the immigrants here legally and hope for a kind and fair solution for those here illegally. We’ll try to make a difference here in our community.
I know our country needs work on many, many levels including healthcare and immigration but I don’t support Trump or his policies. Every time I see one of his ”tweets” I feel ill.
While it’s tempting to close comments to this post I won’t, write whatever you want but understand, there’s nothing you can say that will change my opinion and while I’ll read all the comments, I won’t get into a debate. Keep in mind, my opinion is not based on what people say about Trump but on what Trump himself says. I’m not close minded, I’ve just heard all I need to hear from him to form my opinion.
