How, in a state that espouses morals and values steeped in decency can our “leaders” continue to tolerate a president who instead prizes bullying, demeaning and fear tactics. He is teaching by example, and acceptance that there is no value in truth, knowledge, patience or compromise to reach a common goal.

By staying silent, or worse, standing with and behind him, our representatives are telling us that they are also okay leading our children down this path of intolerance, ignorance and destruction of all this country has stood for for over 200 years. And for what: ”I want ... I need more ... now ... later can wait.”

I am so sad.
