I know that there are many in this county, state, and country who are extremely satisfied with the recent election results. But for every voter that rejoices, there are many, many who lament. I am one of those. We do live in a democracy, actually a republic, and I reluctantly accept the will of the people in this state and nation. However, I, and many others like me, am deeply saddened, even distressed, at the direction we are going. Where will it all end? What does it all mean? What will our children inherit? God help us!
