Deplorable me! A senior citizen; married to my husband for 53 years; parents of five practicing Christians and United States citizens, giving us 16 wonderful grandchildren and two great-grandkids.

We all try very hard to abide by the Ten Commandments and the laws of our nation, state and hometown. We all try very hard to “love thy neighbor as thyself.” We see people as God’s children. We are all uniquely different in appearance, but our internal organs and our appendages are all the same.

So, I guess, as presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has suggested: I’m deplorable! And there are a lot of us! Maybe we’re more like the movie titled “The Incredibles.”
