Appreciate Joan Walsh's take... strange that Clinton supporters have to defend themselves against the #FeelTheBern  crown who've turned this election in a trolling session! 
I’ve come to feel passion for Clinton herself, and for the movement that supports her.

After stepping away from book promotion for a while, I’d almost forgotten the process of getting reader feedback to my work: that anticipation of knowing a review has been written and wondering, “How did it hit them? Did they get my story? Did it move them, strike a chord?” So, to open my Facebook page this morning and find the link to this lyrical, poetic review of a book that meant so much to me to write is… well, it reminds me of WHY we write.

No one candidate has the franchise on that word; there are many different kinds of revolutions, many other essential issues that need attention, require change, and demand the intervention of compassionate people. And since it's always the quality of leadership that sets the tone, and since we've never availed ourselves of the quantifiable advantages of female leadership in the highest office of the land, how exciting that we have that opportunity now!

It's a tough time to be courageous. Fear is all the rage, the currency of politics and pontification. For a country built on ideals of intrepidity and dauntlessness, how strange that we've become a culture hiding behind walls of artillery, clinging to the coattails of our most xenophobic and narrow-minded.

Which got me to thinking about the people in my own life. My friends. My circle. Those with whom I share this world. In doing so, I couldn't help but recognize what a courageous bunch they are, which, in the quaking of our current Zeitgeist, seemed worth noting...

I love this take from Jasmine M. El-Gamal, a Truman National Security Fellow and civil servant; first-generation American and former translator for U.S. troops. Wisdom to take to heart.
