I am an 89-year-old retired Spokane schooteacher, a Democrat loyal to everything our country represents in its past and, hopefully, eventually in its future. Rachel Maddow’s program on Wednesday night left me in tears. She showed us how money and the grasp for power seems to have corrupted many people at the top level of our national government. I am still having trouble controlling my tears. All who love America need to come together perhaps in silent prayer to help bring back our hope and trust.
