At our core, we are uncertain about our national identity
Delighted to read that you are recovering well!
So happy to know that you're making steady progress toward recovering from your bout with Covid. We need your thoughts and compassion at this critical time in our nation's history.
These words help me make sense of the uncertainty and quell the helplessness I often feel. Thank you. Thank you.
I really wish with my heart & soul that the Democrats win this election. It would mean so much to us for all the reasons we already know. Right now, it doesn`t look so good for us. It would be a pity to lose. Republicans are too old fashioned.
You’ve been a guiding light for as long as I can remember, Dan. Thank you. I’m not sure I wanna know the news from here on out, tbh. Hard to believe this is real now.
I'm so glad you've now tested negative and are doing better! Best wishes.
Came running in the door from work just now so happy to tell y’all that the parking lot at our nearest polling place was packed and the line was wrapped around the building!!! THAT’S Democracy! I’m smiling so big!!!
I thank you Enormously for your wit and Integrity and — these days, especially — for your Compassionately Reasonable voice! Stay well, my Friend! 🌱
Very good news. Glad you are AOK, Dan. We have to hold steady while people finish voting today and. All the votes are counted. Breathing
So glad to read that Dan is recovered from his covid scare.
Whatever happens today, the 2024 election cycle has already begun.
Maybe I'm naive, but hopefully a leader will appear who can end this virulent polarization and unite the majority of Americans who just want a better life for themselves and their kids and grandkids. A Biden-Trump match-up would be a circus of old egos who can't let go.
Politics should be about more than just getting elected and re-elected at any cost to the nation.
Surely there is someone that a nation of 350 million can coalesce around, someone who puts country ahead of party, who puts country ahead of himself or herself. Someone who can break the collective trance that is tearing a great nation apart.
I’m intentionally staying away from social media and the minute-by-minute updates today, but I knew this post would be different. I knew you’d provide the steady hand I need today.
Yes Dan and Elliot, we have been at this point in our nation’s past. Everything seems to on the edge. However I believe the internet has profoundly altered our lives and elections and governance. It has placed facts alongside conspiracies on the same stage and many no longer care or know the difference between the two. It has sifted us into silos.
Oh that our citizens would cry out for truth, compassion and knowledge and elect those to govern accordingly. That we would be just as interested about others as ourselves.
The answers are not to be found in silos.
We're so glad that you are recovering Dan, we need your wise words now more than ever! Peace!
Us are Baby Boomers. The idealism of youth was destroyed by killings of JFK, MLK, RFK, and Malcolm X. The race riots of the late sixties and Vietnam War Television contributed to fears and traumas, especially grating with The Depression / WW2 Generation.
