You abandoned the rust belt/suburbs to “love the city” & while gentrifying it you chastise your former communities for supporting Trump???

– Anthony Bradley on Twitter. [link]

As the Trump reaction continues, this tweet made me ponder the abandonment of community. There is an emphasis on Xians/Christians in the tweet and in some of what I mean here….

When we move away and then look back with contempt at the people we ditched. When we don’t support local businesses. When we drive miles and miles to feed off the church we prefer. When we have no loyalty to our town, it’s people, it’s future. When we think our ideas are the only ideas. When we divide, abandon and then attack.

Because the world isn’t just about you or me and, sometimes we find that out the hard way.
