LETTER: We can do better

After watching the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings yesterday, I came away with the sad conclusion that we ought to be able to do better than this.

But we make everything so very political, even someone’s pain. I share with you one of my favorite T-shirts.

It has a place to vote for Republicans and then Democrats and then dogs. The block for the dog is marked.

It’s a little faded but I think it is prophetic.

Maybe just maybe we can see the mess we are in and say America surely can do better than this. We have before and we can again.

I believe we can.
