Letter: Resilient country

Talking to my kids this morning about the importance of kindness, decency, love and inclusivity, the democratic process, branches of government, checks and balances of power, free speech and the vital role of the free press in a functioning democracy, etc. There are a lot of shocked, hurt and scared people this morning (myself included), but I take heart in the tried and true democratic process and the many freedoms we enjoy that allow us to exercise our responsibility to hold our elected figures accountable. And we should remember that, despite our many flaws, we are an incredibly resilient country.
