I grew up in a neighborhood that a had youth sports league. There was a massive city park three blocks from my house with football and baseball fields we used in the Spring, Summer and Fall and we played basketball in the elementary school gym next door. As you can imagine these activities kept my family, and the neighborhood very busy most Saturday’s throughout the year.
When I was in my early teens a prominent neighborhood families son was killed in a car accident. This family was a big supporter of our youth league and my Dad decided to honor them by raising money to build a small baseball stadium and name it after their son.
As part of the construction, a place for a time capsule was created next to the flagpole base. Items that represented the sports league; a football jersey, programs, balls and things that provided details about what was going on in the world in the 1970’s; newspapers, magazines were placed in the time capsule and sealed with concrete and a metal plaque.
After reading the article, The Trump Administration’s Legacy of Orphans, in The Washington Post I thought about Trump’s own trash capsule and what it would be filled with, metaphorically and figuratively speaking, to mark his short time as President. Here are a few things, thoughts, actions that I believe will be in Trump’s trash capsule and what he will be remembered for;
- The inability to tell the truth
- Russia, being Vladimir Putin’s bitch
- 528 orphaned Latin American children
- 3,000 deaths in Puerto Rico
- A total disregard for the environment
- Religious bigotry
These were just a few of the countless things that I think Trump will be remembered for that came to my mind. What would you add to Trump’s trash capsule?
