Maya this is an well articulated and persuasive post. My political discussion train ran out of steam during the long drawn out 2016 election then the follow on battles that have waged since. It was mentally exhausting not to mention watching friendships destroyed. I had to step away to refuel.
I think that there is a time to step back to evaluate what is truly one’s core values and beliefs but not to be silenced. I have evolved-depending on who you ask, devolved-over the years in my political views.
This is one of our freedoms to voice our political opinions and concerns. Let us not forfeit it by our silence.
Thank you for this challenge.
