Whither USA?

Whither USA?

As a grateful beneficiary of tertiary education in the USA, it’s sad to see some of the qualities that made it a great nation causing it through various controversies, conflicts and other challenges.

The country that promotes values and virtues of democracy more than any other country is now beset with pork-belly politics.

Many of its political leaders made compromises, and accepted favors and donations in cash and kind to support their political ambitions without consideration for greater good are practicing nothing more than legalized corruption.

In the name of free speech, these leaders have appealed to base instincts, and polarized the country at a time when it should close ranks to resolve structural problems and strengthen its growth to face a disruptive future.

To promote capitalism and improve bottom lines, many of its prominent business leaders have resorted to finding legal loopholes and skirted around moral conscience to fatten personal and corporate wallets.

While fulfilling its self-appointed role as a big brother, the US has become somewhat of a “bully on the block” in many places, and shaping the world to its fallen image.

The question that begs to be answered is: Will the US Government, starting from the President be brave enough to prescribe the necessary albeit bitter medicine to effect needed changes to make their country strong and great again?

While I believe there are more roadblocks ahead, I’m confident the spirit and strength that have helped the USA overcome seemingly insurmountable challenges in the past will drive it to renew itself.

I pray that it will rise up again – hopefully as a wiser and more responsible and compassionate superpower.


I hope this message will find a place in your heart.
