I have been trying since last Wednesday, the day after the election, to hear what redeeming qualities might be found in our president elect. I have been able to see a tiny bit of what may have attracted the electorate to vote for him, since he is backing down from some of his extreme rhetoric. I am alarmed at the hate speech and actions of many towards women, Muslims, gays, and minority races in the past week and feel fearful at seeing this evil rise up and be tolerated by some. I do not believe Clinton's rhetoric has modeled this behavior for our Nation. I can't help but wonder, how does Trump's behavior get overlooked for his proposed policies? Does the means ever justify the end? I continue to pray daily that my fear of this man can be calmed and for our Nation's sense of decency toward each other.
