For what it's worth Faith, I for one am very glad to see that you are sticking with us.
I too am saddened by the political situation in both our countries, but I strongly believe that most people are basically good. We all, for the most part, want the same things. We just disagree about how to get there. In all the turmoil, it's easy to lose hope in each other. Things can, and may, get a whole lot worse yet, but in the mean time, try not to take it too much to heart, because things can, and will, get better.
