    Thank you for this post. It is much needed. I have never seen so much hateful speech following an election, especially on Facebook and some go to the same church as I. And the way some comments are worded; they are being spiteful and degrading to anyone who did not vote the way they chose. And I have voted nationally 50 times so I have been around the block a few times. I have lived by choice in a disadvantaged area for 38 years and I see more consideration for others than than those that should know better. Yesterday I had to console a 32 year old daughter who chose not to vote because if the comments friends and relatives had made to her in Facebook. Fortunately we can unfriendly them and that is what she did. If we are “forced emitionally” to vote the same way even though our own individual experiences and knowledge base lead us in a different direction, then we might as well be in a communist country where we have no freedoms. Being able to vote by our conscious is one of the most important freedoms we have.
