Today is the birthday of Paul Thomas’ daughter. In his home, there were a few ironclad rules. No physical intimidation of children, no racism, no tolerance for violence against others.


Our society seems evens to be rushing backwards in its regard for other human beings. Yesterday I saw a member of the audience at a Trump rally punch a young black protestor in the face. Maybe if the guy had grown up in a home like Paul’s, he would have stopped himself.  What did his parents teach him, by word and deed?
