John Paradis’s recent column, “The results came in, but we’re still searching for answers,” powerfully expressed the traumatic emotional roller coaster ride from depression to hope that I have felt since the election. His metaphor of the falling leaf, gently swaying, perfectly captured my own feelings. I appreciated his naming of his/our fear about our children’s and grandchildren’s future that may not see the humanitarian and ecological progress we pray for our world to come. I look forward to his columns every month. They are ministerial quality without preaching. This one — just a heartfelt plea for the soul of our nation. Thank you, John, for sharing the gift from your heart to your readers.
