President Trump, Chairman Kim Jong-un, and Fatherhood! | Happy Father’s Day Everyone!

Is it possible that North Korea’s leader,who is the same age as President Trump’s 34-year old son Eric, has thirsted for freedom and liberty all his life but until now, never knew he actually had the power to embrace it for himself and for his people?

Will President Trump’s historic meeting with North Korean dictator, Chairman Kim Jong-un really result in a nuclear-free Korea? All reasonable people in the world pray this negotiation’s outcome becomes a reality!

My husband and I watched the historic arrival of each nation-leader in his respective vehicle. We were mesmerized by their first meeting “in the breezeway” and the exchange of what seemed pleasantries and yes, tentative and earnest expressions.

Then there was our President Trump’s and North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un’s handshake in front of their nations’ flags. Breathtaking!

I continued watching the live feeds until there were no more live feeds to see. I frequently avoid the talking heads. I could care less about their opinions regardless of their monograms… CNN, CNBC, FOX, ABC, NBC, CBS, etc. Instead, I went to my Twitter account. An account I established expressly to follow @RealDonaldTrump!

President Trump’s Tweets are inspired, refreshing, hopeful, and a beacon for people who love liberty and cherish freedom from oppressive regimes. I read and watched all of them… and I thought of my father. I remembered how he shaped my life and how grateful I am to have known him as Dad.

It made me wonder about President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong-un.

Kim Jong-un was born in 1984. He was heir to a brutal dictatorship. I began thinking about the age-old argument underpinning a person’s actions, nature versus nurture! 

According to OUR Founding Fathers of these great United States of America, the nature of mankind and governments is clear: it resides in “the people…for the people…” and all that is needed is the “…will of the people” to act to ensure proper governance.  

What is the “nurture” of the upbringing Leader Jong-un had? It was absolute power, no dissent, and harsh,swift, and deadly penalties for contrary views.

If we accept our nation’s founding principals as that in which the human spirit desires and cherishes freedom above all else, then what chance did, Kim Jong-un, the boy-man at 5,6,7,8,9-20 years-old actually have to embrace mankind’s nature?

Is it possible that North Korea’s leader,who is the same age as President Trump’s 34-year old son Eric, has thirsted for freedom and liberty all his life but until now, never knew he actually had the power to embrace it for himself and for his people? 

Is it possible that 34-year-old Kim Jong-un can find more in common with President Trump’s brood, DJT, Jr.-41, Ivanka-37, Eric-34, Brittany-25, and Barron-12 than he can with his ancestors who bequeathed to him an oppressive regime that is built on the enslavement of his fellow Korean kinfolk?

The world awaits how a 21st Century US President and the Dad, Donald J. Trump-father might ultimately influence the course of World History!
