Ok. I just lost my wife, if you are a true liberal, read this [View all]

I am old, I believed in humanity all my life. Even before there was Internet and we copy and we paste and we feel good about ourselves. I met a woman 19 years ago, who had a handicapped daughter. I fell in love with her, and her daughter, and I adopted her daughter. We lost mom a month ago.
I will no longer put an R or a D Behind my name, I will put an H because I am a human being and 90% of this world are the same.
I live in Florida in the middle of Trump country, or so they think. They have helped Tess and I for the last month more than I can thank them. It’s kind of my point, and that’s what I want you all to believe.
Don’t get caught up with the letter behind your name, and it’s so easy to copy paste, and post Memes, life is not that easy.
You live your life with what you believe and you do it every day in physical life. Put an H behind your name, because we all care about human beings, animals, organisms, We all care about just life. There’s only 10% of this world trying to convince us otherwise.
