17. Maybe you can wait a few weeks and write her a snal mail letter

saying exactly what you just said here. Don't put a return addy just address it to her, to avoid her tossing it out of anger before she opens it. If you can get her to open it and actually see the contents, she might have a change of heart. Who knows maybe she feels as badly about the loss as you do.

Ask her if you can still be friends and see if you can agree to not talk politics with one another. Its the only way I have maintained relationships with some of my Republican family members.

Maybe not re-friending on Facebook but only in person might be a good way to handle it as well. I kind of think that place has a highschool/gang/bullying quality to it. I think people get egged into behavior they might not otherwise have engaged in by certain other members of their "circle of friends" and their little memes.

I think sometimes we can react in the heat of the moment and then regret it later. Maybe it will turn out this way with your friend.
