Weekend in Atlanta

I spent the weekend in Atlanta with a very diverse group of adults from ages 20- 65. My son.was visiting a university for a potential soccer scholarship. I spent the weekend with Hispanics, African Americans and whites of all economic varieties. We ate meals together, talked sports, and just really enjoyed each other's company. Not one time did Trump, impeachment or related topics come up. I was very surprised because of this weekend being in the middle of impeachment hearings. I sometimes think people are going about their lives and paying far less attention than we think. I was waiting for it to come up, even as it was on tv at some of the places we gathered. It never did.

when in company they don't know. I surely am.

2. No one wanted to ruin the gathering

Sometimes itís good to do things and just leave Trump out of it. Especially if itís a culturally and racially diverse group. Just you guys together, doing something that benefits everyone is the best way to show Trump is not going to destroy us.

Why ruin a good thing by bringing trash into it.

Unfortunately its sad this is no longer normal.

Judging by your company they were most likely not republicans, so at least you chose well.
