Letters to the Editor

de Weerd letter: Moving forward

My letter to our girls, and really, to all of us who looked on in disbelief and great distress as the election results unfolded on Election Day:

“The votes are in my girls: we need to move forward and face reality. The world is still a beautiful place and it is more than ever up to us to find the beauty and the good in people. There is good in Donald Trump. He has to grow it and show it. And we are there to lead the way.

It means that we all have to work harder to make sure that we are good people — compassionate with a strong conscience. So look for and believe in the good and be the light spreading it.”
