Relationship Author Questions President’s Sensitivity in Making America Great Again Slogan
Dallas, Texas, February 3, 2020 – In his newest self-help book, The Valentine Year, Charles Rivers encourages individuals and couples to risk their hearts by showing them how to trust in their human spirits again. He seeks to take us on a higher mental journey by losing what we once believed to be ourselves in an attempt at finding ourselves anew. He insists that feelings of self-loathing or misgiving for our partners, our environment, and others are nothing more than a positive call of consciousness for healing our love, life, and spirits through a process of renewal and forgiveness through gratitude.
Having grown weary of the discourse of the two-party system affecting levels of compassion all the way down to the family unit, Rivers says it is not enough for world leaders to solely focus all of their energies on the financial wellness of an impoverished love of a nation. He insists that political parties of various factions globally have focused for far too long on the physical soundness of their countries rather than the emotional soundness of the people they have been challenged to lead. For this reason, the author has set out on a campaign to get the leaders of the free world to proclaim the entire upcoming year as “The Valentine Year”—a year of love.
A boost in the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of any country’s wealth does not equate to a boost of spirit in those tasked to drive that market’s economy. Although the U.S. worker faces a surplus of employment and high economic activity, they simultaneously face a deficit of real satisfaction on a personal level. For well over five decades, the leaders of most political parties have focused on what divides us as a means to grow their own personal power. Humankind’s greatest challenge in embracing compassion over division, for many, falls squarely in the hands of its national leaders.
“For too long we have been trained to focus on what divides us from love instead of what binds us to it. Far too long leaders have effected change to the wallet but left the soul of countries devoid of humanness.” —Charles Rivers
It troubles him, Rivers says, when he hears the president tout his record of economic success while overlooking the human connectedness that crosses party lines driving that growth. If anything, history teaches us that all great booms in any country’s growth are usually followed by decline in a cyclical fashion. These business economists usually attribute it to either inflation or workers’ wanting more pieces of the pie they help to produce. But why does that worker demand more during peak financial periods in history? The reason is that they feel less happy doing the hard labor that brings them the most wealth. An income in and of itself will not make anyone happy, Rivers says. Prosperity does not equate to happiness. A country can have a vast number of citizens who are materially rich, yet spiritually poor.
Rivers gives examples of what happens to the human spirit once we have a surplus of economic growth coupled with a deficit of love in any country:
In his attempt to secure a more humane global community, the author set out on a quest to ask all major Western leaders to forge a proclamation in their nation-states that from January to December of the next year be designated as The Valentine Year, in which we as a global community move away from strengthening hate and weakening love through the divisions of racial, sexual, and political strife. This request was sent in a formal letter to U.S. President, Donald J. Trump, Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau; German Federal Chancellor, Angela Merkel; The United Nations General, Mr. António Guterres, The Vatican Rome, His holiness, Pope Francis; British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson; French President, Emmanuel Macron; and many others.
