A good friend of mine shared that she wasn’t worried about the two Presidential candidates as she felt she could predict the outcome of the election. (That remains to be seen on November 8th.) However, she was very concerned about the fanatical hate-mongers that make up some of the support base for the nominees for President of United States. I shared with her that the hate mongers have always been here. We should be grateful that we now know who some of them are.
Voting is a civic duty. But there is nothing civic or civil about being hateful. We should always be able to agree to disagree in ways that aren’t disagreeable. On November 8th, we have the opportunity to cast our vote for whoever we wish. And the day after, life goes on as it always does.
