Thank you all. [View all]

When I hit post my thread on my latest OP, I did so expecting that it might be my last. And I was prepared to accept that outcome.

I knew there would be some here who supported my views, but never expected there would be so many who did so.

I was in a 'state' when I posted - a state of anger, a state of frustration, but mostly a state of despair that many of my fellow Democrats find it necessary to disparage those of us who believe that fighting for justice is a means to ensuring that it finally will prevail.

Many responders perceived my OP as a call for censorship, or a mandate that opposing views should be quashed - and I blame myself for that perception. Apparently I did not express myself with as much clarity as was warranted.

The fact is that there is a difference, IMHO, between stating one's belief that justice will inevitably not be served and the need to mock the opinions of those who believe otherwise.

Replies to "good news" revelations about Trump & Co's corruption and illegal activities that consist of they're going to get away with it anyway serve no purpose other than to dampen the enthusiasm of those who see those revelations as yet another step towards exposing what needs to be exposed.

I am truly grateful to all of you who renewed my faith in my fellow DUers, and recognized that expressing my dismay at those who encourage us to give up the fight is being recognized for what it is.

In addition, thank you for all the hearts - dozens of which were donated after I posted what I thought would be my last OP here.

I thought I was alone in my views - apparently I wasn't. And I appreciate every one of you who let me know, in no uncertain terms, that the fight goes on.
