It seems like something ugly is rising its head in America. Americans can not see that because they do not have that experience. I do. I grew up in the Soviet Union, I lived through its end, and I lived through what came after. After came the struggle for democracy. As it turns out, it is not easy to be free. You need to work hard for freedom, you need to earn it. And then there is more work to keep it. Americans had all that. They had freedom. Not any more. Donald Trump is taking it away. You will not know it now, or one month later. You might not realize it even after one year, but the day will come when you wake up and you will feel restricted, restrained, suffocating ….
This President soon will join the list of dictators who he admires so much. He is not only very pro-Russian, he mimics Putin, he behaves like Putin, he speaks like Putin. And probably he admires Hitler too, thanks God he does not say that out loud. Yet.
People come out to the streets when their voice could not be heard otherwise. President Trump does not hear the voice of people. Maybe he wants to make America great again, but at the expense of Americans.
By the way “again” means what? Make America great again like during cold war? I thought America was great now!
What I loved most about the United States, that while travelling from one state to another, it felt like going to a new country. Diversity is the strength of this nation. Do not loose it.
And do not give up. Love you America.
