ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov. 11

A year ago, give or take a few days, I woke up in Israel, heard the news and had a terrible stomach ache. I am still reading the news and I still have a stomach ache. My heart aches, too, for the brave women who come forward with accusations of sexual misconduct by our elected  officials and in the entertainment industry and in the sports sector and they are not believed. To have an elected official say that they, the woman,,  should be prosecuted. Did I read that correctly. Maybe it is false news. Maybe the elected official didn't mean what I read. Maybe he meant to say that an immoral person has no place in elected office, in entertainment, in sports and they should be prosecuted for their actions. I am deeply concerned about my generation and their thought process. I have more faith in the 20 somethings . We should just hurry up and let them take over. I think we will then get people in elected office who grew up with people of every gender choice, they grew up with practical knowledge of protecting our environment,they grew up with terrorist blowing up buildings, they grew up with guns killing innocent people while they partied or prayed. They have seen it all. Maybe they can do a better job.I  think I will vote for one of them . Seems us oldsters haven't done such a good job. Just saying.
