You’ll find this hard to believe, but yesterday I was kind of a jerk on Facebook. I wasn’t wrong, but I sure acted like a jerk. Christina SC, I am sorry I was a jerk to you.
Here’s my plan: Today, I shut up about politics. I will not post, write, or comment about the election, about Trump, about any other candidate or political entity, or about people who voted for Trump, or about why people voted for Trump.
I will try not to read anything about politics. Just for today! I want to finish up the day without feeling like this, just for one day:
Tomorrow, we’ll see. Are you with me? Want to take the pledge, just for today?

Yes Simcha I’ll use today and others for taking care of my family and neighbors.
Is one day really going to do it? I’ve been signed off from all social/news media since last week (excepting what I must endure for work) and I’m still not ready to go back. As long as I keep getting a tight chest at the thought of other people, their thoughts and their opinions, then Ima gonna stick with listening to the saint cast and reading classics. Probably straight on through to Epiphany. It’s quite peaceful. I recommend.
I planned to give up social for Advent to help me more peacefully prepare for Christmas…you’ve inspired me to start now!!
With the death of our niece’s newborn last evening and the imminent death of my ward who has gone to Hospice, I realize that there are bigger things to think about than politics. God bless you, Simcha.
So very sorry for you loss and impending loss. Am keeping you and your family in my prayers.
