First, my sympathies concerning your mother. Mine has had MS for seven years now. I know the struggle. I wish you the best of luck.

I'm afraid the rest of my comment will be critical. I understand that you don't like the course of things in our country. I don't either. But do you not see how divisive you are being by blaming "old white men" for the problems. No matter what country, no matter what time, no matter where, led by what color person fo what gender, every country engages in war. It is not an activity peculiar to the old white men who founded this nation. It is worth noting, however, that those old white men did have the peculair notion to start a country where people can speak whatver they wish, wherever they wish, to whomever they wish. This blog, and my comments, were secured by the blood of countless white men, and black men, and women. Blaming problems on white men is just as racist and sexist.

Men are not the problem (I say this as a lesbian woman). If women ran this country to the degree men do now, there would be no difference. We are all animals in the end. We live only by desire, no matter how noble. Those desires will always find resistance from other people and other lands. We need to find a way to tolerate each others' desires and accept everyone's (even men's) humanity. I honestly don't know if that goal is, even in theory, possible while maintaining the sovereignty of each individual. How much humanity are you willing to pay for the quiet?

Finally, my mother did bear me, but she was not the only one who gave me life. My father did as well, and I am bothered by those who would discount his role in my being. So I offer credit to my mother, but also to my father, who happens to be the best person I have ever known.

Once again, best wishes to your mother.
