I don't know what to say - the words are just not coming.
I am saddened
I am stunned but not surprised, I am disappointed but I sort of expected it.
Often on this blog I refer to this country as "This Great Republic" because in spite of all it's imperfections I believe(d) that this nation is still the place where justice lived.
At this moment after this verdict I am not sure I can or will ever say that again.
Bill Clinton used to say "I still believe in a place called hope." I cannot at this moment.
