Letter: U.S. can rebound from Trump actions

Letter: U.S. can rebound from Trump actions

Bill Shapiro, Schenectady


Many Americans believe in justice for all, governmental protections such as the FDA, inclusion, fairness and giving people opportunities. 

Citizens want leaders who work for health care for all, a voice for everyone through voting, and leaders who work for us and not only for themselves. This isn’t the direction that our country is headed because our president is adhering to his smaller political base instead of the rest of Americans.

Most Americans believe that it’s ingrained that we use compassion and a conscience in governing. They think that separation of families is unthinkable in America and just plain wrong. 

It’s unfortunate that our country has come so far to meet the needs of many, and that one administration has torn down so many of the accomplishments of past administrations. The encouraging note is that our country has the framework to resist and restore what has been torn down. I pray that we do just that.

Bill Shapiro
