“Melanie, this is fabulous and sensitive, yet appropriately challenging. I posted a comment on FB last night suggesting the press and media should cool it with stone hurling and below the belt coverage, dragging past wrongs into the forefront of any front runner or celebrity. My main stand was, let the past be the past; we're all human. But after 20 minutes or so I removed the comment because I realized that God himself brings hidden facts and realities into the light...details people might need to know before making a choice for a governmental leader.
Your piece is merciful and humane acknowledging "all have sinned and fallen short" yet it confronts us with a simple reality; given the choice we feel safer with a leader who is least likely to pull the wool over our eyes in any and every circumstance. Thank you for such a great article. I look forward to reading more!”
