Please, please, please, if you haven't already done so ...
I know that those whose political views are different than mine have very strong convictions, too. Neither side is necessarily right, or wrong - although we believe our own sides to be the right one. But I truly, with all of my heart, believe that our country has been dragged down for so long by our own leaders ... and we feel that every day. It's physical, heavy and oppressive. There is weight, and stress, and anxiety, and fear. We have become a society of fear - fear of anything and anyone and anyplace and any situation that is not who and what and how we are. But if we keep on in that direction, we'll drown. We'll collapse on ourselves. We will no longer be what, honestly, every single one of us - Democrat, Republican, Independent, every single one of us - believes and wants America, and Americans, to be.
There can be fear, or there can be hope. I choose hope.
The results of this election can change the world, far past our own country. There is so much at stake in this election.
