Rise above


To the Editor:
Is it too early to breathe? To believe that we can have hope for our country, so fragile after having been systematically broken over these past four years? We are in a civil cold war; can we see the sense of taking the long view and working toward a truly United States? The whole world is watching and hoping that we can make the right choices, big and small, that will enable us to be cordial, be civil, at the grocery store, in line at the Post Office, in the encounter with the guy in the MAGA hat, or the woman in a Biden T shirt. Help us to hold our tongues, breathe, rise above, as a phoenix, and leave the detritus of the former world in the distance.
