Their anger was palpable, displayed ugly and raw on homemade signs in the Women’s March on Washington.

Hatred spewed from their mouths and expressions, so potent that, at times, it seemed as if they might spontaneously combust. Many of these women lashed out from deep childhood wounds or past bad relationships, demanding to be heard.

But in the midst of their angry, heartbroken screams, it was they who failed to listen. As they allowed revenge and rage to overtake them, to define their very lives, the women actually became what they claim to abhor.

Many of them are the unwitting pawns of the elite mass media who successfully manipulated and hyped their female cries into hysteria. It was all too easy: Prey on the worst fears of the fearful, constantly attack Donald Trump as the villain, twist his words when you can and flat out lie about him when you can’t.

The mass media, who are losing readers and viewers by the millions, needed a “boogeyman” at whom they could direct collective anger, so they created one in President Donald Trump.

Mind you, some of these women believe in the hateful mantra of Gloria Steinman, Madonna and other powerful women who seek to use the hurts for their own benefit. Many others have simply allowed their past hurts to harden their hearts and clog their ears.

Listen, ladies, please stop and listen. If you just open your ears for a few moments and truly listen, your hearts will find hope. And in so doing, you may also find a way to begin to heal.

Yes, Donald Trump said hurtful things in the past. But who among us wants to be defined and remembered for past mistakes? Do you?

Listen to the president, who is dedicating his remaining years to serve you. Hear his promise to level the playing field and give power back to all of us — men and women. Your best hope is to give him a chance.

In his inaugural speech President Trump promised to fight for you. Help him fulfill the promises that you believe in, rather than spending the next four years of your life submerged in self-destructive hate and vitriol. You can watch his entire inaugural address at WhiteHouse.gov; here are just a few of his promising words of hope:

“But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system, flush with cash but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.

“This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

“We are one nation — and their pain is our pain. Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home and one glorious destiny.

“The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.”

He goes on to say:

“You will never be ignored again. Your voice, your hopes and your dreams will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.”

Be women of courage, goodness and love, and in so doing, help guide our country — and your own life — to a better place.
