So today, don’t look away. Do not look away from what the President said. Do not dismiss it as overblown or “just the way he is” or “locker-room talk.” Nothing offensive he’s ever said has been any of that. It all matters. His words and those of so many other divisive politicians matter. They all have meaning. Our words have the power to give life or to destroy it. This kind of rhetoric drags our nation further into a politically divided morass from which I fear we may not escape unless we act soon.
