This week's Passing Notions gives creds--where creds are due. To the Republican presidential nominee, for acts above and beyond—to a man of self-stated sacrifice--a veritable profile in courage—I write this:
Homage To Donald John Trump
You are a rarity in the ranks of presidential politicians. Having earned the respect and loyalty of supporters; you brings to politics the same ethic and pathos that has earned you your fortunes.
An individual with guts and grit--enough to face the truth about America--to lead the forgotten and down trodden of us to the promise land. Donald J. you are a man of the people—a paisan, mensch and mi hermano.
As son Eric has proudly said: "[it] took a lot of courage in so many regards" for you to do what you did at and after the first Presidential Debate. It is only just and right to share some of these courageous acts with the world—to record them for posterity—to let future generations know of your generosity, compassion and willingness to take one for the team.
You Donald J. Trump:
Flame on Ye light of liberty—Ye son of Queens.
