8. I was raised in a household where both parents instilled qualities

of a public servant. It is a life of self-deprivation and constant self checking with everything you do in your every day life. Most people would see it as repressive. I certainly did as I grew up. But you learned to respect it because the job was honorable and the reason you did it was because you knew that as a public servant you had a target on your back. It was easy for someone like Trump to tear down your work and purpose if they found some human frailty.

That was over forty years ago, but Trump has brought that reality to life. It is just something that public servants have to live with.
