Sad day for America today.
I’m reading “In the Garden of Beasts” by Erik Larson. It’s a historical novel about Nazi Germany from late 1932 through the Nazi years.
The family of William Dodd, the US Ambassador to Germany during those years, moves to Germany, At first they thought that Germany was fine and that maybe the Jews “deserved” what Hitler was doing to them. But as the story goes on they realize how dangerous Hitler was and how his supporters just followed behind him without thought and not questioning all the terrible crimes he committed.
We never learn from history. Today Trump will be taking office and his followers refuse to see the possible dictator this man can become. They are being led by their noses. In Trump’s word, “Sad.”
I’m not saying that Trump is a Nazi or should be compared to Hitler and what he stood for … but I’m thinking it.
Horrible day The first day of some terrible times. History books will be filled with this. Comparisons will be made.
