So very true. When do we feel threatened enough to react? When do we see others suffering as our own? When are we willing to sacrifice our luxuries? Our comforts? Our necessities? Our safety? Our family’s safety? Our lives? I know people who believe in an exceptional America, in the values of the Constitution, yet scorn the reality of those beliefs. These are friends, relatives… no different than swearing an Oath of Office, then behaving immorally, bigotedly, criminally. I fear for our country; for people exhausted by a toddlers with nuclear footballs and racists with AR-15s. My line in the sand is here, now… so we don’t find ourselves careening down a slippery Hungarian style slope on a toboggan piloted by Tucker Carlson.
