OK, I'll admit what I did was stupid. I shared a photo of Obama at my Facebook page. Then, I had the audacity to ask people to please not reply if they disagreed with me. I said "just for today." I'm feeling sad about how vitriolic the arguments are these days. I did not want even one negative word, and that's all I asked for. One day with no negativity about one happy picture that I posted. If you disagree, go ahead and disagree, but do it elsewhere. Just today.
Like I said, I guess that was just plain stupid. Some people can't keep their yaps shut, even for a day. To be honest, I am practically in tears because one person couldn't shut up. For one day. He waited a whole 37 minutes.
I am so tired of the polarized, dysfunctional place we have turned the USA into. We can no longer even disagree, or ask for one day of respect, without getting lambasted.
What hurts more is that the person who responded negatively (twice, I might add) is the husband of one of my very good friends. Wish he could have respected me long enough to just keep quiet. For a day.
I guess that is asking too much in this horrible climate we have created. And.. it is Facebook, after all. I guess I was asking way too much.
