Prior to the 5th Game of the World Series, I wondered if a time would come when crowds yelled “Lock Him Up.” My deep hope has been that people opposed to this President would not lower themselves to his standards. Yes, it’s true that Hillary Clinton has not ever been found guilty of a crime and yet many people in this country consider her to be crooked. It seems only just to yell the same to the President even though he has not ever been found guilty of a crime at this point in his life. And yet there are many in the country who consider him to be crooked. We’ll see what’s proven in a court of law if that should indeed come to pass.
I – like you – have watched and re-watched the President’s experience from a luxury box at Nationals Stadium last weekend. I admit before God and you that I felt a tinge of appreciation for those who booed him. And yet I want to embody something different from those who “go low.”
This opinion piece struck a nerve for me. I don’t want people to boo. I don’t want them to yell “lock him up.” I want us to “go high.”
And yet, as a person who has experienced my own assaults and betrayals, I never want the rapist or the betrayer to win. I want love to win.
What do we do with this?
