Too many want to bash her and say she’s not perfect.
I want to reply and ask them to show me someone here who is.
Too many want to scald her because her mistakes are great.
I want to reply and request the list of those who have none.
I have lived here a long time, and she’s been good to me.
I’ve studied Truth, and the truth I’ve found proclaims light.
It isn’t that I’m blinded to imperfections
Nor am I ignorant to wrongs that need to be righted.
What I will not be is a hater.
What I will not demand is an ideology of impeccable flawlessness.
Rather, I will choose to be grateful for the abundant blessings given.
I will choose to be thankful for freedom and free will.
I will honor, respect, forgive and love.
I will remember the good and try to rectify those things that are feasible.
I will choose to grieve when the loss is imminent and tragic.
I will rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn.
And I will choose to, above all else, speak truth and thank the One who created it all.
Praise the Lord, call upon His name;Isaiah 12:4-6
Declare His deeds among the peoples,
Make mention that His name is exalted.
Sing to the Lord, for He has done excellent things;
This is known in all the earth.
Cry out and shout, O inhabitant of Zion,
For great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst!
