I had stepped away from posting for these past few weeks for a variety of reasons. These included family responsibilities as well as other factors.
But one big reason – and the thing that had me finally take to the keyboard again – is seeing so much divisiveness and negativity continuing long after the election. We’re only days away from the new President from taking office and still there are polls calling for a special election, celebrities saying how they’re flaunting the inauguration, racial incidents occurring across the country and a pervasive atmosphere of fear and uncertainty that spills out in practically every conversation, article and news item you see, read or hear.
Although I risk being lambasted (at best) by readers and critics alike for what I’m about to offer, still I feel it’s important that it be said.
