The Voice of America

This past week has seen events that no one with goodwill in their hearts could possibly celebrate. Like many others I was overcome with anger and sadness.  There were voices I needed and yearned to hear.  And I heard them.  Voices that in the end tempered anger and sadness with humility and empathy.  Those who tut-tut America during such times and fling imperial charges from perfect perches fail to understand that the vast majority of Americans while sharing vexing human limitations and imperfections yet remain deeply committed to love and understanding as the only practical way to achieve civic and personal happiness.  Along this long bumpy road to Zion, it is impossible to limit earnest communication to the tight confines of Robert’s Rules of Order.
