….we remain the United States of America.

This has been a long and turbulent process. We’ve been engaged in a
prolonged version of something like the Thanksgiving family debate
(sometimes argument) around the table. It is the contentious but great
engagement of ideas,  of a representative republic expressing itself
over how best to govern itself.

We’re all “Values Voters”. All issues are moral issues. The outcome
of this election will determine who’s values will prevail in directing
the nation for years to come. Citizens on both sides of the political
spectrum are very worried about what that future holds if the ‘other’
party prevails.

Be of strong heart, which is inherent in our American character. Be hopeful.

And defiantly optimistic.
