I’ve just returned from a visit to the apartment of Danny and his wife Gloria. I enjoyed the visit, Gloria is a great hostess.
I was happy to get home to do some writing.
We have one of the most important elections in our lifetime coming up. I listened to the election speeches by Trump and Biden. Biden is a good speaker, clear and forthright. He warned us about the dangers to our democracy faced if Trump is re-elected.
He promised, if elected, to protect and fortify the socially beneficial laws we now have and are in effect solely due to the sacrifices of caring and involved people, many at the cost of their lives. He spoke of the need to keep a vigilant eye on Trump and his avowed promise to rescind and destroy many of the hard fought benefits we now have. Truly frightening.
Biden is the guy I am voting for. He has devoted his entire adult life to public service. He lost his wife and daughter in a tragic auto accident, and his son Beau to cancer.
Despite these gut and heart-wrenching losses, he carried on.
His liberal and forward looking views I truly believe will make him one of our outstanding presidents.
He speaks from his heart, clearly and convincingly. I feel sure he will be our next president, and a great one.
Trump, a womanizer, a real estate speculator, a casino owner, is not the man I want to lead our country.
