Our children are diminished

Posted

To the Editor:

A virtual classroom discussion in the year 2120. History does not forget.

“Virtual teacher, you mean the states certified the votes, the courts upheld the outcome, and the Electoral College confirmed the election ... but 140 U.S. representatives, 12 senators and a sitting president refused to concede? What year was this?”

“Yes, Mary that is correct. And the year was 2020. Before that time, our nation was known as a democratic republic.”

Loss be the wound that humbles, inspires, and reconciles us in our common humanity.

Those who cannot accept defeat, covet reward but reap dishonor and lose again in the pages of history. As this dreadful election farce stumbles to a painful conclusion, our Founders weep, tyrants snicker, and our children are diminished.
