Response to rainin (Original post)

17. Thank you for your elegant, thoughtful post encouraging closure...

For me, it's a wound that will never heal completely. But as you said, to dwell on the Franken Affair is destructive and counter-productive for our future. If Senator Franken has had the courage and grace to accept what happened, then I should too.

I also have faith he'll be back...stronger and bigger than before. He inspires me to keep my mind on the prize, that is, a democratic Congress in 2018, starting with restoring voting integrity to our elections. If we keep letting Repubs steal our elections with voter disenfranchisement, gerrymandering and bogus voter IDs, our Democracy will die.

So, my DU brethren, let's roll up our sleeves and get to work. Let's make Senator Franken proud!
