Shame on Me?
And people wonder why there is so much venom and vitriol in politics?
I know a lot of caring, supportive, and generous people. They come from all walks of life, all geographies, all religious, and all political backgrounds. One slice of America does not have a monopoly on "caring" about people like me.
Autism, palsies, seizures, scoliosis, and whatever else might constitute the characteristics of "me" are not restricted to a specific population. "We" are not a uniform group, whoever we are. If anything, members of the Dramatists Guild or university humanities departments are more uniform in beliefs and biases.
I don't want to be told what I should believe. I am not rushing to join a party. (I've joined several over the years to receive their mailings. Does that count?) I like to contemplate quietly, alone, and come to my own decisions. One aspect of my existence does not dictate who I am or to what groups I belong. I define myself... period.
Most people do care. I'm not about to judge "caring" about others based on political affiliations -- that's simply shallow and judgmental. A lot of good people exist, if you're willing to move
beyond stupid labels.
Shame on me... I like "Declines to State" as a party. Just treat me with respect and I'll try to do the same.
