Kevin Haynes 4 years, 5 months ago on Madison Ruppel: Respect needed

Well said, Madison! Well said. I loved reading this yesterday while the election was in full swing, and even more today after reading post after political post on Facebook. It's too easy, when we don't approve of what a leader does, to not only criticize the leader, but to also demean him/her and belittle his/her supporters. That's way too prevalent in today's politics, unfortunately.

Also, I loved your quote from Ecclesiastes. It was perfect! And it's true - I will more readily listen to someone who quietly and earnestly wants to express his opinion than I will to someone who just screams insults and derogatory comments.

I can see you're going to be a leader in a new political atmosphere that I hope we begin to embrace soon. Thank you for seeking to lead the way.

I'm impressed by the editorial. I haven't researched this issue exhaustively, but I know that if I were to look online for research and facts supporting the use of marijuana I could find a lot. I could also find a ton for the other side. You can find facts (or "facts") to support any issue you want! But Connor did call this "1 Teen's Perspective," not "The Last Word," so cut him some slack. You can disagree with him without attacking him or calling him naive.

It seems like every issue - and every political race - in this country is completely polarized anymore. I won't convince you to side with me, and you won't convince me to side with you. Let's at least dialogue without calling each other names. Emotions can run high with issues like these - take a breath before replying.

Thanks, Connor, for having the guts to do what many would not do.

Thanks for being transparent with us, Kay! I have worked with your staff in a variety of capacities over the years, and they are the best. And it's because you expect the best from them, and always give it yourself. So sorry this had to happen! But I am convinced this will still be a fair and well-managed election. :)

Way to go, Tyler! We're all very proud of you. There's no doubt you're going to accomplish GREAT things in your life! Just keep being yourself, my friend. :)
