Let’s pitch in to help stamp out hate

The election is over. The results are well known. Let’s move on.
You may feel like you “won” or “lost,” depending on whether the people you voted for were elected. Try to get over that.
Handling defeat has always been problematic. Probably more now than at any time in recent history.
We are bombarded every time we open a newspaper or turn on electronic media. Innocent parishioners slaughtered during worship in a synagogue. Bombs mailed to former high profile politicians. Random shootings and stabbings in schools and at concerts and elsewhere.
Social media has become unmanageable. Far too many disrespectful memes and jokes and rants have blown up Facebook. Politicians and Hollywood “celebrities” have made a disgrace out of Twitter. Those who use hate speech and exhibit hateful attitudes claim the First Amendment allows it.
