JANUARY UPDATE: PERSONAL + SOCIAL


The year has started with a lot of changes. 

Personally I'm so happy that I started the new year building my house on a solid foundation like my Lord. I've been doing devotions and that is helping me be more closer to my Lord, but I can improve and do more devotional journalling. I hope what God has for me to do is slowly building up. I need to encourage people to be more faithful and to really recognize that our Lord is love and patience. That He is the one who protect us and will never let us fall. That all the evil that is happening is man's own doing. Man wanting to be God and decide for humans.


Socially the Women's March on the inauguration of Donald Trump, as the unpopular president of USA, was successful. That was one of a kind, everyone from different culture unity to walk against bigotry on the highest seat in office. A week after the inauguration I decided to watch the ceremony because as an historian I had to document this moment and I'm sure speech will go down into history as the moment died against after the end of Second World War and the great powers painstakingly designed a law that will prevent another genocide. Trump's speech called for separation. 

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it's going to be only America first, America first.
(APPLAUSE)
Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.
(APPLAUSE)
Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. I will fight for you with every breath in my body and I will never ever let you down.
(APPLAUSE)
America will start winning again, winning like never before.
(APPLAUSE)
We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth. And we will bring back our dreams.
(APPLAUSE)
We will build new roads and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our wonderful nation. We will get our people off of welfare and back to work, rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.
(APPLAUSE)
We will follow two simple rules; buy American and hire American.
(APPLAUSE)
We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first. We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example. We will shine for everyone to follow.
(APPLAUSE)
We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate from the face of the Earth. [this sounds like prelude to another genocide, horrible, horrible, it makes me sick]
(APPLAUSE)
At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other. When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.
His speech and the whole set up reminded me of the nazi period in Europe. Trump's speech ecos Hitler's speech when he came to power to claim that he was going to bring Germany to its glorious days. That was when democracy died in 1930s.

In the carrying out of the Four Years Plan lies our first task. It will call for gigantic efforts but eventually it will turn out a great blessing for our people. Its purpose is to strengthen our national economic system in all its branches. The execution of it is guaranteed. All those great works which have been started apart from this plan will be continued. Their purpose is to promote the health of the nation and make life more pleasant. Building extensions will be systematically carried out in some of our large cities, as an externalization of the spirit that actuates this great epoch of our national revival. In the forefront of these plans stands that of remodeling and enlarging Berlin and thus making it the real and true metropolis of the German Reich. Therefore I have today appointed, just as I did for the great scheme of national road construction, a general architectural supervisor for Berlin, who is responsible for the reconstruction and extension of the metropolis. Out of the chaos which resulted from the former building schemes in Berlin he will bring order. And that order will be based on such spacious plans as will be worthy of the National Socialist Movement and also of the German metropolis. We have allotted a period of twenty years for the carrying out of this plan.
.......

 And, finally, it will be one of our future tasks to give the German people a Constitution which will be in harmony with the real life of our people, as that life has developed politically. This Constitution will place its seal on this life for all time to come and will be an imperishable and fundamental law for all Germans.

Trump in power signalled the dead of good values once again. Both men mention God's name but God said

19 We love because he first loved us. 

20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. 

21 And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.


Few days after Trump's inauguration, he signed an executive order temporarily banning immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries (Somalia, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya and Sudan) and halting refugees from entering the country, the political whirlwind he unleashed showed no sign of letting up. 

He's executive orders were similar to a dictator. His decisions, easing the constructions of the North Dakota Pipeline to cross Lake Oake, people demonstrated in the thousands.

His actions signals, to many people, the dead of democracy once again. He is in office for his own gain.

One thing significant point is people are fighting back with the good fight against this bigotry. Marches and demonstrations are non-stop. At airports where immigrants are detained. Humanity is uniting more than ever. Every social background is standing together against Trump and it's beautiful to witness a prophecy, because it's unprecedented.

THIS TIME THE WORLD IS AWAKE AND WON'T STAY SILENT AGAINST BIGOTRY, INJUSTICE AND RACISM.
