        1. We are thinking along the same line, my friend.
          We stand at a point in history when you cannot be silent and be a good person at the same time. Silence speaks too.
          Nature has given men the gifts of words for a reason. Certainly, there is a time to be quiet and a time to talk. The sad truth about our world is that not everyone has a voice. But many good people do. Unfortunately when good people choose to be quiet, evil wins. When good men are called to take a vote to condemn evil but they choose to abstain from voting, they have sanctioned the ignoble acts by default.
          Thank you for reading. I appreciate your comments.


  1. I am always happy when you post. At the moment I am struggling to find words to combat the ugliness from my President without adding more fuel to the appalling fire. I feel like saying “I am glad you are here” to each immigrant I encounter every day. But that seems intrusive.

    1. Thank you so much, Elizabeth. We already know the president. He does not hide his feelings or his intentions however awkward or uncompassionate they may seem. What we don’t know is what lies in the mind of our neighbors and fellow citizens. What we want to know is whether they will approve of his rhetorics a second time. The next election will tell us what our neighbors really want to say without saying it loudly.
