Thankful for a resilient democracy
For years, I have been a frequent contributor to the Denton Record-Chronicle op-ed page, having written dozens of commentaries and letters. Most of these contributions have focused on our country’s political environment and the fragile state of democracy. Following the November election, I have been reassured that American institutions are resilient and that our nation contains more decent and rational citizens than what I once thought. As a result, I made a promise that I would refrain, at least for a while, from penning political op-eds.
