119. Thank you, all of you, for this inspiring thread.
It's inspiring to be able to see 2 people reach out to each other, Will and Forkboy, and try to reach an understanding. It's great to see the different perspectivies of people, of "interesting times" being a burden or a challenge.

I have only been here since the election. Before that, I griped and tried to do the right things in my own little world. I thought the election would rid us of the evil cabal, and once the unthinkable happened, I had to begin to act. Thanks to DU, I have found a way to channel my actions in productive ways.

I do think that some of us need scolding at times: the hysterical chickens of the last few days would have been funny, if it weren't so destructive. I would like more tolerance for different points of view around here. At core, we share the same principles, but disagree on how to get there.

To Forkboy, I suffered from depression for years. It almost destroyed my marriage (we went through lots of counselors), and my depression hurt our son as he was growing up. Evenutally, I did find the help I needed, though the right therapist and the right drugs. The struggle to overcome depression is worth it, but it is a struggle. :hug:

On one last note, if my homophobic, conservative brother in Dallas can vote for a Hispanic Democratic lesbian for sheriff, the Democratic party can rise again. (You know who he voted for for president).
