Out here in back soaking up some Vitamin D and fresh air.

With eyes closed and contemplating circumstances. Speaking with God, asking still for His resolutions.

* is damaged. Some by no fault of his own, but by his harmful formative years. However, he is damaging our country and its inhabitants. I don't forecast/see any change toward the positive.

I will not give any answers here. Only admit the unspoken content of my day and night petitioning to the Lord of Hosts.

1. Actually my view is that there comes a point in everyone's life

when you are accountable for your actions. Blaming your parents or your upbringing becomes a self indulgent one person pity party. We all make deliberate and conscious choices about our actions. No one else does it for us. We are accountable for everything we do, or donít do. Itís a choice we make.

2. I'm not giving him a pass. Only reasoning why he is the way he is

and has been his adult life.

He has choices, but his mechanism won't bring him to anything of worth, just destruction of other people and things.

3. + 1000

I agree. Any of us could find a reason to behave badly if we look hard enough. There's a point in life where we should decide that we're not going to let our past define our future.

Put a period and move on.

5. I believe there is something actually amiss in the chemistry or structure of his

brain, and that it has been so most of his life.

If anyone looks within their family structure, consisting of at least several people whom one has known most of their lives, one realizes that much of the personality is inborn, and life - parents, siblings, circumstances- can influence for good or bad.

The real fault lies within the voters who elevated the inexperienced, incompetent person to the office he holds, and, I'm sorry to say, to the flaw in our system of government, the Electoral College.

6. I had a bit of a discussion with my 96-year-old mom the other day.

We were talking about COVID-19 in the White House, and about the possibility that Trump and Pence might come down with it. We both want to see them come down with it, but we both feel very uncomfortable with the thought of wanting someone to become ill, to suffer. It's tough having religious training and a functioning conscience these days.

We never came to a conclusion. We feel bad about it, but it's hard to stop wishing misery on two such miserable people. All I can do is ask for forgiveness.

7. I understand. My initial emotion of him was simply irritating, then turned to

contempt and loathing.

I have never repented this much ever in such frequency.

* has given place to the Enemy of our Souls, the Evil One..
