Brother’s Keeper 

How to meet the anger and apparent ignorance of my compatriots who seem so willing to sacrifice the well-being of “others” in exchange for an imagined safety. I read their comments. I see the invective dripping from every sentence and I wonder if these erstwhile Christians have never thought about the duties of love and charity placed upon them by their teacher. 

I am beginning to see that convincing and persuading the cult-like followers of the 45th president is a futile and dangerous pursuit: all it had done is engender aversion in my own heart. Better to leave then alone and carry on with life, supporting those that I feel have the interests of the many in mind.
