SoCS: Our Country

I  journal and do morning stream of consciousness exercises, and
I’m again participating in Linda Hill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday
I write to a timer, 15-20 minutes, no editing except spelling, and of course I add my art!
You can do it too!
The Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “adverb.”
Any adverb will do!  GO!

Note: I always hated adverb discussions… I find them so confusing.
Adverbs versus adjectives.  I had to look it up!
And still for some reason, find the whole damn thing confusing.
I bolded what I THINK are adverbs…. Toughy!

These days I ponder our brilliant Constitution and how it is being trampled on daily by people who stupidly follow this leader and his cronies to a place I fear may end us.

I fervently pray that people wake up.
This is not partisan, as I come from a divided family, yet they are a family that is truly patriotic and loves our country and our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Frighteningly, it seems most people do not know the laws of our land, and why they’ve worked to keep peace between disparate peoples… and we are a mixed bag, we Americans.  We do not agree on so many things, but we used to come together over
the big things, and certainly our laws helped us because
we believed in due process, in the Balance of Power.

We’ve lost our Balance of Power because we’ve lost out Fourth Estate to corporatism…
and we may end up losing our country to stupidity.

I fear this isn’t going to end well.

For the rules, go to Linda’s blog;  feel free to join the fun!
