Decency Wins!

Congratulations to Doug Jones the new US Senator from Alabama! Congratulations to the people of Alabama! Congratulations the people of the United States!

Decency won big! Democrats won big! The Senate won Big! The people of the United States won big!

And the world watched as the people of Alabama said, “ENOUGH!” The win for Doug Jones is a statement that even in the one of the deepest red states in our nation there is a growing desire to return to common sense, common decency and common values.

Thank you to all who stood up, spoke out, and most especially, all those who exercised their right to vote. Citizenship is alive and well.

Trump

I fought to protect the right of my fellow citizens to have the freedom to demonstrate their beliefs. What might be disrespectful or offensive to me might be a deeply held belief for someone else. We have become far too sensitive to “slightly offensive behavior,” while totally ignoring and turning a blind eye to truly offensive actions that we need to speak out against.

intolerance and violence

If we are ever to achieve true global community we must all stand up and make our voices heard. Silence in the face of intolerance is not acceptable. It is complicity.

Intolerance comes from fear and insecurity. Love is about openness and acceptance. I choose love. I choose openness. I choose acceptance.

What about you?
