Letter to America

Dear America,

This is my formal and cheeky resignation being written in x amount of times notice.

First and foremost I want to thank the military and those who serve and have served. I also want to thank the first responders and police who have saved lives and did what they could to protect.

I am now approaching my mid 30’s and I have come to the conclusion that we may not be such a great fit. I would like to say it’s not you, it’s me, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

I try to abide by the philosophy that people do not have to agree to be kind or able to get along, but I am finding this more and more difficult.

The President in Office doesn’t respect the position he holds, the position of others in government, nor the people of this country and I’d like to say he is to blame for the messes that have been pouring out since his inauguration, but I deem government and the electoral college in which the government of the people depends on to elect such officials and the fact, run on sentence, that no one has deemed to do anything to go in the direction of correcting all of this. It is like this Presidency is a form of trash reality entertainment.

That got salty really quick and for that, my apologies. I just feel that my happiness could be better met in a country that gave a damn. Gave a damn about its ideals and people and worked to make progress rather than regression. Holding children in cages, separating children from their parents, not being open to other people whose countries are having catastrophic conflicts, sticking our noses in other countries who don’t care to have us interfering while ignoring other countries pleas for help that are going through mass genocide.

I don’t have all the answers and no one person does, we need many perspectives, but we need it from people who want to move forward. People who want to progress and have the genuine interest of the country as well as the world and its environment at heart.

Nothing has shown me recently that America is getting there. We are a young country, but I feel we are making more mistakes and even repeating things that happened in the past.

This is just how I am feeling. I am disappointed and disgusted. I only hope the people who can do something eventually do something.

Until then I will be practicing my French and plotting my escape to Paris.

Au revoir,

Cheri
