Without Words

The world is not respectable;
it is mortal, tormented, confused, deluded forever;
but it is shot through with beauty, with love,
with glints of courage and laughter;
and in these, the spirit blooms ...
and struggles to the light
amid the thorns.
—George Santayana

I have learned that fighting inside oneself 
and bullying others to adhere to group-think
are the single easiest ways to alienate people
and lead them to quit. 
I refuse to quit, now or ever. 
I will fight for change in my way and will
support those who fight in their way.

From his latest column for the Falls Church News-Press, 
in which he eloquently answers his critics 
with clear-eyed self-awareness, honesty, and heart. 
And far more grace than most could manage.
Please, please read and share.
