The US Vote

gray skiesI thought the gray skies this morning was apropos.  I keep hearing the lyrics to Aerosmith’s Livin’ On A Prayer: “There’s something wrong with the world today /  I don’t know what it is / Something’s wrong with our eyes…”

It comes in threes: Brexit, the Marcos burial (in case you missed it, the Philippine Supreme Court have decided that Ferdinand Marcos, known Philippine dictator and thief will be buried in the Heroes’ Cemetery – how can a man who stole from the country, plunging the country into debt, and exiled dictator be buried in a place reserved for people who served the country with HONOUR?!?), and now a reality TV show based in the White House is a real possibility.  I’ve spent the last few months reeling from the results in vote casting in the Philippines and in the UK.

I hope the global community is ready to ride this political tidal wave!  Buckle up everyone because today marks the start of the most challenging few years in human political history.
