This morning I woke up to news announcement that the 21st major democratic candidate is jumping into the 2020 U.S. presidential race.  I wondered, how many people are actually running for office? A quick lookup on Ballotpedia revealed that there are over 700 people who have registered to run for president!    

This cycle’s presidential race goes to show that the cries of the masses are getting louder and louder for radical, bold leadership.  The dangers of this thirst for leadership is that people are willing to follow a leader with dangerous values if that person gives them hope that they too, have not been forgotten.

People are thirsty for empowerment.

People are thirsty to be heard and understood.

People are thirsty for a vision for a better tomorrow.

People are thirsty for leadership.
