I pulled up with my kids at the local convenience store on West Nine Mile Road in Spokane, Washington and exposed my kids to this explicit anti-Trump sticker on the window of the car that pulled in next to us. There was no time nor options to prevent my kids from seeing this display. Immediately, I heard my children make comments that they would need to ignore and self-censor from their minds the inappropriate language of this message. As a parent, I’m glad they immediately recognized the difference between inappropriate and acceptable forms of expression. By comparison, none of the individuals who exited the vehicle were likely under the age of 18, yet they haven’t acquired this form of maturity.
I think of a quote from a former President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is applicable:
“Profanity is the effort of a feeble brain to express itself forcibly.”
-- Spencer W. Kimball
Generally, individuals tend to associate with those like themselves. Accordingly, the owner of the vehicle is likely to associate with others who enjoy using swearwords to interconnect. Possibly they believe that using explicit terms is the best way to attract others like themselves to join their political causes such as whining about President Donald Trump.
I invite others to drop the vulgar terms and join me in sustaining President Trump. If you don’t agree with a policy he promotes, find constructive ways to express your opinions without swear words. By doing so, I bet you will more likely find others like yourself who don’t have feeble minds. Remember, President Trump wants to “Make America Great Again.” America is stronger when its citizens learn to speak with more civility.
