Dear Shannon,

An excellently written, scary-because-it’s-true article. I love it!

I would love to challenge & end that kind of invidious poison. I just don’t know how. It doesn’t lend itself to education. I haven’t met anyone on the fence. They’re either against the desiccated pumpkin full of wasps, or they’re full on Trumpists, & look how fantastically he’s draining the swamp! There is no discourse, no discussion, no meeting in the middle because the president of this country didn’t give anyone a middle ground.

So I’m lost. I just don’t know what to do short of moving away, but my husband is loath to do so quite yet. However, if the orange thing is elected for the second term, then he promised me he will definitely look into moving seriously. And this from me, am immigrant. Sigh. I’m going to go & try not to eat my feelings now.
