A Thought

I love my country, but I love the ideals upon which this great nation was founded much more than any approximation of how those ideals are being expressed at any one point in time. 

Political dissent and a healthy reverberative respectful dialogue is mandatory for the functioning of any democracy.

To the extent that we can all have open discussions about our different takes on the myriad of political, economic and environmental issues that now so perilously inundate us, we are ok.

To the extent we cannot, we are not.
