Control 8/11/13

up north is an amazing friend of mine who had become a widow some years ago. To speak with her, it doesn’t sound as if she is still in mourning (although I’m sure there are times), but she speaks of him with such high regard and affection that it’s simply charming.

Racist 1/6/20

We should all be willing to listen to opinions to debate with respect. Naturally, people who are stubborn and disrespectful are not worth the effort. Too many people are hard-headed, not because they’ve thought through the issues but because they refuse to be “wrong”. I don’t mind ignoring people like this (they are the “toxic” people), but I love hearing opinions of those who disagree and are willing to actually have the discussion.
