In case you’ve been living under a rock you are well aware of what has occurred in Connecticut today. I’ve been flipping through news channels and looking at Facebook and I’ve been getting an eye and an earful. The rhetoric flying from the right and the left is hitting a fever pitch that is really beginning to concern me. And I mean seriously concern me.
I highly recommend that everyone take a deep breath and let the dust settle for a couple of days. Because the national conversation right now is not healthy. It’s perhaps the most angry and divisive stuff I’ve ever seen. I’ve seen some nasty stuff in our political discourse since I first became politically aware thirty years ago, but I don’t know that I’ve seen anything like this and it is really beginning to worry me.
My prayers go out to the families.
