BIDEN HAS HEART
BIDEN HAS HEART
Okay, I know the last administration left the current one with a hell of a mess and it’s going to take moving mountains to bring things back to even semi-normal. I know there’s massive inequality, home-grown terrorist’s threats, outrageous health care costs and criminal drug prices, immigration problems, a climate crisis, a wrecked economy for everyone but the rich, and of course, the pandemic. I get it. We live in challenging times.
But I’m getting sick of making art and writing about all that’s wrong and scary. Now that we’ve gotten rid of he-who-shall-not-be-named, and we have sane, intelligent, grown-ups in charge, like the Grinch who stole Christmas, my battered heart is growing a little stronger each day. We just might have a chance of dealing with the overwhelming challenges we face as a species. While we are admittedly mired down with bad news, there are good things happening too.
He-who-shall-not-be-named has more faults than can be listed, but one of his worst was the complete lack of empathy. Empathy is something that Biden has in spades. Biden might not be perfect. He’s not the best speaker in the world, having had the challenge of overcoming stuttering as a child. He’s pretty old, but that gives him wisdom. (Besides, thinking of Kamala Harris as POTUS in 4 years is pretty cool.) He has massive experience, which gives me a little peace of mind. But the best thing is that the guy has heart, which gives me hope. Consider how just that one thing will influence the decisions made by this administration. As you fall asleep tonight, forget all the scary stuff. Think about the fact that Biden has heart and that means everything. Yeah, we’ve work to do. But at least now our leader actually cares. @blueravenartist #blueravenartist #blueravenpolitical
