...ONE. SOLID. YEAR...
Of keeping my mouth firmly and quite painfully shut. Quietly sitting by and watching the events unfold. Only sharing my thoughts with two or three friends who I was sure was not going to hold my opinions against me. Who would be happy to discuss rather than debate or at least debate sensibly. Making a couple of attempts at just clearing up a misconception only to get a finger wagging, looks of fury, or questions I that I know the answers will lead to anger.
So I say nothing.
I did the same thing eight years ago. And then four years ago.
After tomorrow, who knows?
Years ago, on Facebook, I asked my friends and family that they be kind to one another, whether their guy wins or not. Please. Be kind. I'm not even bothering this time because given what I have silently seen and heard, no one is going to see or hear me.
They don't want to. And they have made that abundantly clear.
