I’m not sure that what’s happening these past few days is healthy for the political system of the country, such as it is.Hardly a day passes without a Tom, Dick and Harry coming up to say he wants to be president.The office that we used to look upon with awe and wonderment has been rendered ordinary via its occupation by a man who sees himself as a small god for 30 years.

With different minds, different smiles, and different voices.

But in every different creed and every different colour
Making life less duller.

I don’t see a sexual preference
Just a way of living
For a life to live that’s fulfilling.

I don’t see disabilities
Only new abilities
Making the most of life and less misery.

I don’t see evil or hatred
Just those who misunderstand the truth
With inabilities to accept or choose.

I see human beings
With different stories worth hearing
And different lives worth seeing.
