Fear Not the Leader

My grandmother told me of the time a terrible man ran for office. There was fear that he was going to take us back to when things were bad. Fear that he’d change the way the system was run. I always thought those stories were myths until my mother told me the same story of a different man. Another person who would destroy life as we know it and take us back to when things were worse than her present. Now I’m realizing they were in fact myths. There will always be fear that the next leader isn’t right and will take us to a darker place than our current, but it’ll never happen. We the people would never allow it. The government is there to serve the people and when its services are no longer required, we’ll assure its absence.
