>However--sometimes it will be YOU who will pay the heaviest price in the end. I won't/ can't rush to judgement. I'm not choosing sides. I'm just really sorry it happened and am eager to see this come to it's fruition. It may take many generations for the wounds to heal----but people are resilient and it is my sincere hope that we are moving foward as a species. Already--in this last election---we have seen the start of a major healing. It's been a ghost that has haunted America since it's conception---and the rest of the world even before. Peace and tolerance are so much easier---I have yet to figure that one out--but I'm doomed to spend my existence pondering the complexities of it all. Maybe that's what medication is really for after all.

There's quite a lot in this, and I am in no condition to do it justice.

Whenever people say they are feeling 'inappropriate sadness', I think 'Oh yeah' and prefer Bruce Cockburn's
'You carry the weight of inherited sorrow
From your first day till you die'
but then I have spent my life looking for things to grieve over.

But what is the ghost you have in mind that has haunted America since its conception?

It is only that you once said you had some native-American ancestry that makes me wonder if you are thinking back to then.

I can only give a view from outside, and because that view is different I am always interested in the view from inside.
So when you say
>Already--in this last election---we have seen the start of a major healing
of course I agree.

The world has been badly frightened (or maybe I am) and is greatly relieved to have a president who seems to have such intelligence and integrity.
Even calling a spade a spade and being reasonably transparent is a good start.

How I liked it when he was asked if he inhaled and he answered
'That was the point.'
