I don't write about politics here---plenty of that to go around elsewhere.
But my "sister-in-law" Jennifer Henry wrote something about common human decency on her blog today, Jenniferuns is 51. It reminded my of manners and lessons of how my mother taught me to be respectful of people, regardless of skin color. Jennifer's blog isn't about politics either.
Jennifer is one of the most upbeat, accepting, non-judgmental people I've ever known. Her thoughts on the Supreme Court decision about the so-called "Defense of Marriage Act" reminded me of my Mom's example.
I think you should read Jen's comments. Jennifer's blog
