    Well said.
    I’d rather go for justice than fairness, but like you I taught fairness as best I know (knew) when in front of a class.
    I did not vote for either, however, Trump is making Obama look like a great President.

      I think I’ll always be imagining alternative realities—had Bernie this, had Kasich or Bush that. The 2016 Republican primaries should be studied endlessly, as should the Democratic Convention.

    I agree, our sense of unity as a nation—already less than healthy—was badly wounded in 2016. Trump thrives on resentment, revenge, spite, and divisiveness. Obama, whatever one may think of his policies and decisions, constantly made efforts to be everyone’s president.

    Well said . As a Brit I can relate this to what’s happening to my country. I am dispirited at what has become of politics at the moment and hope for better times, and for the younger generation to become even more politically aware and active. As a woman especially it’s important for me to get out and make my voice heard and use my right to vote.

      At leat Britain, as far as I know, has kept to some of its environmental commitments. The greatest disaster to Trump is his rejection of the Paris Agreement and his denial of global warming. What’s worse is that I think he does think it’s real; he simply doesn’t care. The wealthy can move anywhere.
