Coming up on three months of nationwide shutdowns, and now very real civil unrest is happening with threatened violence from the President. Both big box and small retail stores are being looted and closed and yet the market is up today. How is this even possible?
I don’t care where you are from, the color of your skin or what you believe, police brutality and racism is real. There’s no place for it in society. Just like a pandemic that has no eyes for race or religion, we as a people need to come together more than ever. We need to take back our country from government control and let our voices be heard. We need guidance and leadership and not politicking. And that guidance and leadership isn’t coming from our government. It’s coming from leaders in the form of CEOs and Super Bowl Quarterbacks.
We need to bring back sports to bring back a sense of unity in our nation. Sports has a way of unifying people from all walks of life. Even if fans root for opposite teams, or players beat up on each other across the line of scrimmage, at the end of the game there’s still high fives and hugs and respect for their opponents.
We need to respect each other. And maybe then we can start to tackle the divisions we see in our country.
And then we can justify the market going up.
