The United States has issued a travel warning for all of Europe. I totally understand that. If there aren’t more terrorist attacks in Europe in the next few weeks or months, I will be shocked. It seems like the breeding ground for this nonsense was carefully tended. It will be hard to stop them now. This is madness.
We have active terrorism in Europe. We had a madman running for President of the United States. I certainly hope decency will prevail at some point and all of this will get under control.
Who am I kidding?
The only thing I can do is go about my business and be the best person I can be. That means being gracious to all people, sharing what I have to the best of my ability, being patient, and respecting our differences. I refuse to be afraid of my Muslim pals who run the liquor store down the street. I refuse to let the rhetoric of Donald Trump invade my psyche. I just refuse.
