Thank you for writing this, Liz. Everything is too draining and numbing, and yet what you say is exactly what I needed to hear. There are expressions of knee-jerk vengeance coming from unexpected directions... Listening to the radio seems to be an exercise in violence in itself. This hatred, it divides even more than it could ever unite. In the coming days, I pray that great wisdom will guide the actions of those who have -- and who will have -- the actual power to act.
