Patriotism 101

Tonight is the debate. For President. We’ve seen disagreements before. However this time is different. We have a man who would
take our country to a very different place. And people are threatening to leave the country over his possible winning.
I am older and wiser than such posturings. If all critics leave, who will be left to stand up to someone who wants to take away free speech, free press, and other rights we fought so hard to hold.
It isn’t MY COUNTRY RIGHT OR WRONG. It’s just MY COUNTRY TOO. And the country that is mine is the one I will keep living in. Whatever
levers are pulled.


About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
