I love this truthfully encouraging quote from our (by which I mean Georgia’s) senator Raphael Warnock …
“A vote is a prayer about the kind of world we want to live in. And prayers are stronger when we pray together.”
As you may know, on December 6 there is an important senatorial runoff in my state of Georgia between Warnock and Herschel Walker.
I know that many who care not about facts will of course disagree, but Walker has shown himself to be a repeated liar (“I am a deputy!”), a horrendous hypocrite (“I am anti-abortion” while paying for multiple abortions for his lovers), a terrible father (his son says he was never there for him), “pro-family” (which means that he is against my being able to stay married to my husband Robert), “pro-life” which means he is against a woman’s right to have autonomy over her own body, an election denier (“Trump won” — of course Trump won, he groomed and endorsed you), etc, etc, etc.

For some reason, I have always appreciated “the view from behind.” As a child, on the first day of each school year, I was a nervous wreck waiting for the teacher to announce our seating arrangement.
