Tactfully and skillfully done, as always, Kristi,and the poem is perfect for the day. I've struggled with the same problem with my blog. I don't want to alienate readers who have different opinions, which I can respect. I tried to calmly express my thoughts a couple of weeks ago. I feel deeply the pain of those who feel this country has left them behind. But I just can't be silent in the face of OVERT racism, sexism, crudeness, misogeny, name calling, xenophbia, and all the rest. While the entire campaign proposed few solutions, this sort of behavior cannot be the answer to our problems. It goes against every value, Christian or otherwise, that I've ever held, values I thought most of our country held as well but it turns out I was wrong. It's a sad and shameful moment for our country, and I will continue to speak out strongly for decency, and for respect, and equality for ALL people, of any race, gender, color or creed.

Dear Kristin, I shed a tear over your post today. I was not aware of that Jea-Marc suffered from this terrible condition . I have friends who suffer from it, and as so many of your lovely supporters have commented,there are many things that work for some people, but sometimes nothing seems to help. My heart goes out to you and your family and there are many prayers coming your way from both Ron and Me. xxoo, Lynn
