“But, you know, there’s more at stake than our party and our political fortunes in this moment. If we lose faith in the Constitution, we won’t just lose elections. We’ll lose our country.” Mike Pence msn.com
While I don’t agree with Mike Pence on many things, I admire his courage in regard to this statement and his role on January 6. I am always drawn to stories where people struggle with good and evil, light and darkness, trying to figure out the right thing to do in complicated situations, and where someone has the courage to step outside the box or beyond party lines. It reminds me of when Darth Vader turned and saved his son from the emperor because there was still good in him.
In reality, things are rarely so clear. There are a lot of colors between black and white. There are even a lot of colors between red and blue.
