What a crazy, crazy time to be alive…

When the history books are written about the early 21st Century, the Trump years will probably go down as some of the biggest chapters in those books.

Those of us that voted for Trump know that he was the exact right candidate at the exact right time…

And he was chosen not to be some stoic and refined president, but to be an effective president—and that’s something he’s pulled off time and time again.

We can sit here and go down the list of all that he’s accomplished…

But ultimately, it doesn’t matter. Right now, as a nation, we’re facing one of the biggest threats existential threats we’ve ever encountered: the Wuhan virus.

The potential for its devastating effects on the country is staggering…

We could lose tens of thousands of American lives before all is said and done.

However…

That doesn’t mean there isn’t an opportunity here—an opportunity that nothing short of a disaster like this could ever give us as a country.

It’s Time To HEAL

What are we talking about?

We’re talking about the ability to heal and come together as a nation like we’ve done before under immense pressure and devastation.

There is one thing that we can say without a shadow of a doubt…

A united America is UNSTOPPABLE! It can (and often does) change the world for the better.

We got a tasted of this on September 12th, 2001, after terrorists attacked us and changed our way of life forever.

On the day after the saddest day in American history, everyone put their differences aside and chose to get to work for the betterment of America…

But this uniting of the nation pales in comparison to what happened after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941.

When the Japanese said that they feared they woke the sleeping giant, they were correct.

We’ve seen what a united America with a singular focus can accomplish – and maybe we can get a piece of that united spirit now.

Our president is trying to ignite some of that same sentiment. The other day, he tweeted, “The world is at war with a hidden enemy.  WE WILL WIN!”

Reigniting The American Spirit

Trump has taken a sort of military approach to the coronavirus…

He’s seeing this a war…

And it is, which is why he doubled down at a press conference and followed up the tweet with, “We’re going to win, we’re going to come back.”

He wants America to see this a war – and it is! It’s a war for the future of our country.

It’s all very reminiscent of FDR’s speech after the Japanese attacked.

During that famous oration, FDR said, “No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the American people in their righteous might will win through to absolute victory.”

This is what we need…

We need to unite to defeat a common enemy!

If we can recapture that same spirit of unity, set aside politics, and work together for the common goal and common good of America…

We could come out of this stronger than ever.

The question is, will the Dems let him do what he needs to do for us to come out of the other end of this?

Can they let go of their blind hate?

Only time will tell…
