Why We Raindrops Are Needed for a Storm of Civility

My son Will Sharpe brought the attached story to my attention: https://www.chronicle.com/interactives/state-of-conflict.  It does feel as if our lives are under siege from the far right.  Reading this reminds me of the importance of: “nevertheless, she persisted.”  I live in hope that Republicans will put down their far right agenda and pick up a position of becoming problem solvers; meanwhile, I hope Democrats will become increasingly committed to being the party of our conscience. We can’t ignore politics. We raindrops, reminding politicians we are part of their constituencies, need to work daily to spread practices of kindness, which means respecting diversity.  This isn’t just about social justice; it’s about humankind.
