As an 84-year-old senior and a Korean War Veteran, it is a great honor to have been a dedicated Democrat over the years. The Democratic Party was the one that led this country out of the Great Depression to where it is today. It is very concerning what has happened to the people who were born and raised Democrat, only to change. What caused the thinking of these people to change their thinking of how Democrats fight for the benefits we all enjoy, to those who only care about a select few?

My deep concern was the 2018 election when the Democrats did not go to the polls and vote for the candidate who would have protected and fought to keep the benefits so dear to American and their daily lives.

Where were you as Democrats when America needed you most? Unknown, to say the least.

Now we reflect on where this country is today; chaos, divided, hatred and many other things, but it shouldn’t be that way. We are all Americans. We should love each other, not do what we do today.

This is why, I as a senior, am deeply concerned with where we the people are heading and that is why I am a proud Democrat.

God bless and grant every American a great, loving life.
