Signs Were There, by Sankar Chatterjee

America wonders. We were the beacon of democracy led by a highly-educated, progressive and hard-working President with full of empathy. And now this?

The signs were there.

The not-so-subtle racism against the first African-American President, maliciously doubting his citizenship and religion.

An obscene combination of spewed hatred and the availability of firearms, resulting in gunning down of black church-members in Charleston and homosexual patrons in Orlando.

A global financial meltdown with ground-zero, but no bankers served time.

Ever-presence involvement in international warfare, while creating millions of refugees worldwide.

Civility, humility, empathy all became words of past.

The signs were there.
