INSTEAD OF WORRYING ABOUT CREATING MORE WEALTH IN THE USA, WE NEED TO COUNT OUR BLESSINGS FROM GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER FOR THE PROVISIONS THAT WE DO ABUNDANTLY HAVE, BY HIS GRACE AND FAVOR
THE DRAMATIC DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GOD OUR ALMIGHTY HEAVENLY FATHER'S PLANS FOR AMERICA AND THE PRESIDENT ELECT'S PLANS

WE NEED A PRESIDENT WITH COMPASSION AND UNDERSTANDING AND RESPECT FOR WOMEN OF ALL ETHNICITIES IN THIS COUNTRY

YESTERDAY I WAS READING AN ARTICLE ABOUT HOW SINCE TRUMP'S ELECTION, MUSLIM GIRLS AND WOMEN IN THE USA HAVE BEEN BEING ATTACKED FOR WEARING THE BURKA/VEIL AROUND THEIR FACE AND HOW THERE IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM WITH HOW THERE HAS BEEN NO JUSTICE FOR THESE WOMEN BECAUSE IN THEIR NATIVE COUNTRIES THEY ARE JUST AS LIKELY TO BE ATTACKED AND JUDGED FOR NOT WEARING THE BURKA/VEIL, SO THIS IS A NO-WIN, EXTREMELY UNJUST AND UNFAIR SITUATION FOR MUSLIM WOMEN IN OUR WORLD. AS A NATION, WE DESERVE A PRESIDENT THAT RESPECTS ALL WOMEN AND UPHOLDS ALL WOMEN OF ALL ETHNICITIES AND RACES. I REMEMBER VERY WELL HOW DURING THE CAMPAIGN, TRUMP DISRESPECTFULLY CALLED CONDOLEEZA RICE, A FORMER, HIGHLY-REGARDED SECRETARY OF STATE AND A CHRISTIAN, A VERY DEROGATIVE NAME THAT I REFUSE TO REPEAT EVER. AND WE LIVE IN A CULTURE THAT SO WRONGLY TRIES TO TURN WOMEN AGAINST OTHER WOMEN, INCLUDING AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON DURING THE ELECTION. I HONESTLY DO NOT SEE HOW ANY WOMAN WHO VOTED FOR TRUMP IS SELF-RESPECTING AND SUPPORTIVE OF WOMEN'S RIGHTS IN THIS COUNTRY. THIS IS NOT HOW A CIVIL SOCIETY SUCH AS AMERICA SHOULD BE TREATING WOMEN, ESPECIALLY MUSLIM WOMEN WHO ARE ALREADY TREATED SO POORLY IN THEIR NATIVE COUNTRIES. AND I APPLAUD THE EFFORTS TO RECOUNT THE VOTES IN STATES LIKE WISCONSIN, MICHIGAN AND PENNSYLVANIA BECAUSE WHAT WE HAVE SEEN AND HEARD THUS FAR FROM THIS PRESIDENT-ELECT IS NOT WHAT OUR NATION NEEDS IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY. AND IF YOU ARE A MALE WITH A FAMILY , IS THIS HOW YOU WOULD WANT YOUR DAUGHTER(S) OR WIFE TO BE TREATED AND SPOKEN TO BY A PRESIDENT OR IN THEIR SCHOOLS BY CHILDREN EMULATING THE PRESIDENT-ELECT'S UNCIVIL SPEECH? I HAVE READ SO MANY ARTICLES IN THE PAST WEEK ABOUT THE PROBLEMS HAPPENING AND ESCALATING IN OUR NATION'S SCHOOLS OVER STUDENTS THINKING THAT TRUMP'S BEHAVIOR AND SPEECH IS OKAY AS A MODEL FOR THEIR BEHAVIORS TO ONE ANOTHER. THERE IS SIMPLY NO JUSTIFICATION FOR THIS AT ALL AND WE NEED OTHER LEADERS, WITH INTEGRITY, CIVILITY AND COMPASSION, TO STEP FORWARD AND ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM. SINCERELY, DIANE
