I am afraid. Each day brings news anew that our nation has lost its moral bearings. Whether it’s the president embracing a dictator while scorning cherished allies, border patrol agents ripping families apart or the rising attacks on minorities, I worry that cruelty, insularity and bullying are becoming the hallmarks of our great nation.
Recently, I was struck by Virginia voters’ selection of Corey Stewart as the Republican candidate to challenge Democratic incumbent Tim Kaine for the U.S. Senate. Supported by President Donald Trump, who tweeted out his support in his characteristically cutting manner, Stewart immediately promised he would run a “vicious” campaign.
