The President and the Covid Virus

We Love Our Country



Carpe Diem

Oh just stay silent as to the President and the Covid Virus. Go ahead and justify yourself with your “feelings” as to the President and the Covid Virus. I am bound to respect you. It is just really hard for me concerning the President and the Covid Virus.

You on FB and all other matters of public discourse have held your tongue. Damn it that is wrong. I write hundreds and hundreds of words every week for the public. And I will bet you not one of you know my political bent. I spend hundreds and hundreds of hours a week reading and informing myself of events both current and historical. I have the time and leisure to see the world inside out and outside in. But you would not know if I am republican or democrat.

I do not cotton disdain for another no matter how gross and grotesque there seeming conduct. Oh I judge like the Dickens and I make decisions both moral and logic based. Shame on you for not openly sending well wishes to a person in sickness and in health. You are so justified in your hatred or you are so petrified of your support you stand idle. Oh you have no grief in condemning or attacking but you lack the love to support.

Good people are not like you. Good people care. And they care with the same fervent that they disdain. It is the mark of goodness. Tear down and build up in time of debate but love in the time it is called for. I have so many friends who slide in hate into their comments but to narey a one have I seen sadness by way of spreading love to an ill man and woman.

I double and triple check where I write and give publication. I have not seen one person seize the moment and offer up love and support. Shame on all of you that I call friends. We are made of free will and we will die of the same. But we must choose love for the here and now. Rancor and attacks are just fine and dandy and I would have it no other way.

But to sit idly by and not wish well with your pen which you make a living at makes me not sad but mad at you. You were given the gift of words yet you use them not in compassion and love.

Who Are WE?

God's Devine

I will not teach him divide.

I will not teach him divide.

Sit or Stand For Love

I will not be of this world. I refuse. I must rise up and be of the world of love and compassion. You and you and he and her have total free will yet I have not been given such luxury. I simply have no choice or calling different than loving. I am constantly wounded by the showing of less. The quiver of the angel sinks within my soul and causing me to grieve for those with talent that do not express it in love and support for one other who suffers.

Yes I hate my enemy but I also love her. Apathy is the opposite of love. I care enough about my enemy to lift her up when she needs my love. I will not stand by and not curse you for not wishing well to the infirmed no matter their stature. “Oh I will not pray for him for I dislike him.” That is some sick stuff. You rot in your skins. I disdain the fortune of politics and of war. But I honor and hold up my enemy in love. It is not free will to not love another. These people, fine they do not pray for the President. These people, fine they do not support him. But those of the pen who sit by and say nothing show apathy and therefor lack of love.

Hail thee oh folks of the mighty sword of the pen. Your silence crushes me and denies me my spirit. Where are you when I need you oh defenders or the jurisprudence of compassion? The gravity of the “leader of the free world” lies in the balance of his fortitude yet you spend no time in bolstering it. You lay silent in weakness in fear of harming your own self. Truly repressing your gift to raise others up. Truly fearful of your status lest you seem supportive of he that you disdain. What cost socially is there compared to your lack of humanity. You drip with lack of courage for you have trepidation so as to be accepted among those you consider peers.

Speak thee mind in times of ease and yet hold it still in times of dire circumstance and I not only bemoan you I slay that slate cold heart within you. To benefit your social media status by remaining silent as one suffers is that which repels me from your sanctimonious positions. They are not true, one against the other, they are vindictive and harm each being that lives in love.

And Mountain High Together

Don't Explain Away

I AM Not Here to Support

I do not preach here, I condemn you. I strike at your mighty silence with the full force of love. My love which is joined by all love smites you. Oh you sit so silent. What wisdom you show. Blasphemy upon you I declare. Look at me, a worthless writer of dreams and philosophy yet I also am humbled as another is in less than loved by all. One of thee suffer more than me and I am deceived by my own righteousness. When the leader of my enemy befalls harm, I am harmed for love reaches all who are in love.

So in this writing do not look for mollycoddling. Do not look for sympathy or a desire to relieve your stress. Look for my disdain at your pilfering of love silence. You must stand for something or fall for anything. You must stand proud that you love even your enemies. Oh shirk thy duty of love my friends but I cannot save you of your failure.

Why did you not raise up another with public comment. Are you afraid of thought against you? Such woe I cannot undertake. In this I have no free will. I am not the master I am the mastered. Love as my king I cannot act against it even by silence for fear of losing my base of palliative love.

Cure my soul I ask. Release me from this disdain of the silent hidden ones who are afraid. You oh Lord have made them what they are and I shall respect that. So perhaps you cure their heart but I beg that you cure mine also for I feel anger. That is yours alone and not mine to garner. Please let the mouths and pens of good people spew forth good. Let them open their own hearts and love with grace towards those afflicted though they may be enemies. God I pray thee to open up all hearts to love.

Thanks much Pamela. It sure is better.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on October 05, 2020:

I fully agree with you, Eric. We are commanded to love one another and it sure feels better to live that way. Excellent article.

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on October 04, 2020:

So well said Audrey. It would appear to me that you live that. Blessings.

Audrey Hunt from Idyllwild Ca. on October 04, 2020:

"Love one another." There are no ifs or buts.

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on October 04, 2020:

Thanks much Raymond. May love be our touchstone.

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on October 04, 2020:

A B we are called to good. Some just ignore the calling, too sad.

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on October 04, 2020:

Robert it is good of you to be so supportive, I thank you. We are bound by love to celebrate each other. Perhaps you say it more evenly than I.

Eric Dierker (author) from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on October 04, 2020:

Thank you Lori. I got up this morning to take this hub down. Perhaps I still will. I thought to myself, perhaps it will anger and make folks not like me. And then I realized it would make me complicit in apathy. We are one people and we must act like it.

Raymond Philippe from The Netherlands on October 04, 2020:

Eric, well said. I love the way you express your thoughts.

Lori Colbo from United States on October 03, 2020:

Robert, thanks for sharing.

Robert Henry Ditmore MA MEd from MORRISON on October 03, 2020:

Miss Lori, even Piers Morgan raked the evil wishers over the coals today. He almost had me in tears as I listened to his condemnation of the Trump haters.

A B Williams from Central Florida on October 03, 2020:

Amen and amen!

Robert Henry Ditmore MA MEd from MORRISON on October 03, 2020:

Eric, this is outstanding, and very obviously hearrfelt. I concur with what you have said here. I am one who has not penned anything since learning of their illness; rather, I was driven to my knees and compelled to lift them up to our Lord. I believe you may have learned of my thoughts on the matter of loving and honoring our those in authority over us in an earlier posting of mine. When I realized Vice President Biden obviously is suffering from some type of cognitive issues, I lifted him up as well. It makes no difference what we think of them as politicians, or as people, we must love and honor, and continually lift them up in prayer. Again, very thoughtful and timely offering, thank you!!

Lori Colbo from United States on October 03, 2020:

I can honestly say for those who celebrate, or somehow turn it against him, shame on you as well. I was delighted to hear Rachal Maddow, a strong opposed of Trump and not often very nice about it, whish him and the first lady well and asked people to pray for them. I must have weeded out all the nasties of FB because I have not seen anything but positive posts on this. I have many liberal friends I expected to hear from negatively, but so far not.

When Obama was in office I had a conversation with a friend. Now I was in no way a supporter of Obama, but somehow assassination came up and this person thought it would help matters. I said Obama is a creation of God, who loves him. The Bible says

"The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance." If we don't like a president we should pray for them.

We should never celebrate the sickness or death of someone, except maybe for those of such pure evil as Abu Bakr al-Baghdad, Hitler and the like. God loved them, but they proved so evil, they killed and torture thousands and millions of people.
