I am utterly convinced that logic and reason left Washington D.C. with the departure of President Obama.
Last week, delegates from various countries met in Geneva for a meeting of the World Health Assembly. One of the topics that was to be discussed was the initiative to encourage mothers to breast-feed their children until the children no longer need breast milk.
It appeared to be a quick vote. Then the American delegation (no surprise there) shut down the vote and threatened sanctions if the topic was brought to the floor to be vote on again. Only when the Russian delegation stepped into to re-introduce the resolution did the threats from the American delegation stop.
I’m not a parent, nor am I a medical professional. But I know enough to know that breast-feeding one’s child not only provides the necessary nutrients, but creates the bond between mother and child.
When did America become the bully of the world? We are supposed to the be the leaders of the free world, but that was before you know who took over the position.
To the rest of the world on behalf of every logical, thinking American, I apologize. This is not who we are as a nation. Whatever you know who says or does, please do not abandon us. We still need you.
