Duly noted, Gail. Again I apologize if my comments made you uncomfortable or if reading them caused you distress. My intent was only to engage in a meaningful conversation.
You certainly have the right to choose what topics interest you and have made it clear politics or issues involving the future of our country are not on that list.
I look forward to your future posts about hikes with your dog and your daily observations in nature. If one of your future posts triggers a political or social response from me, I will express myself in a separate piece not connected to your post so you won’t feel the need to read or respond to it.
There is room on Medium for all sorts of interests.
