Human Decency and Civil Discourse

I have a very dear friend who voted for Trump. I was appalled, but never questioned her choice just as she never questioned my support of Hillary--we coexisted in our friendship because we both respect the freedom of the ballot. But I do not respect the ugly posters, the gloating, the jeering, and the personal attacks that have been posted since the election by some of Trump's supporters. Their behavior has not made me question my choice or retreat into a cave to lick my wounds. If anything, it has strengthened my resolve to use every talent and skill I have to promote human decency and civil discourse. For what is right, I will fight.
