It’s a big world out there: more than 7 billion people, on 7 continents, more than 200 countries all told.
Who leads? It depends. In the United States, we have something like a democracy. And so in this political system who leads formally? Depends on who wins the election.
Who follows? Everyone else.
The thing is, at least in the United States, those who become president, he or she, has pretty close to an ultimate power while in office,
And then they become regular citizens again, once the term is completed.
Presidents, and all leaders, in the US and everywhere, they should be, and are, just people like everyone else.
Presidents in their best moments, give themselves to their office, to their people who they are elected to serve.
That ultimate power, it’s to be used to serve, to further the common good.
Let it be so. Let it be so.
