It’s not so great for any of us.

I’m a 72 year old man. Throughout my lifetime I saw great social change. Yes, there was a lot that I wanted changed more quickly, but the graph was moving in the right direction — to the left.

And then it started to change, but it wasn’t depressing me. Upsetting, yes, but so we slipped a rung or two, we’d keep climbing. And then it felt like every rung broke from under us and we were heading for the ground!

I’ll vote for Biden. I’ll hold my nose and vote because getting rid of Trump is critical. But Biden is not going to advance us. We won’t ever celebrate his presidency, and he may even lose.

I’m disgusted. I know you have even more reasons to feel cheated and abused, but you are not alone at all.
