Puzzled, Troubled and Questioning

I’d like to hear from you about the dichotomy between what we say about empathy, especially for mentally confused individuals and how much glee most everyone takes in belittling and personal name-calling back the president. Sure, he hurts people. It’s like what we do at war: dehumanize the enemy so they become a non-human being.  I’m really talking about myself. I do it too, but every now and then I flip and experience what he and his family must feel about being insulted back by everyone.  Don’t get me wrong; I’m a Democrat, but I just wonder how our two different behaviors and belief systems can occur together.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
