The 2017 National Postal Forum continues to it's conclusion today as the world outside follows it's own agenda. The Manchester terrorism. Trump's foreign travel. Also, here, not 31 miles from Baltimore, in College Park, Maryland, a newly commissioned 2nd Lieutenant was stabbed to death in what appears to be a relatively random, violent, hate and alchohol inspired murder. The randomness, aside from one criteria, race, is most disturbing. This was a victim, pure of character, done in by ideologic hatred fueled by booze. While the brunt is born by the victim, I am hopefull a greater good is served. If you judge a man by his character, join me in this outrage by dedicating your energy in a positive way toward an inclusive future. You need not abandon your standards. Poor character and behavior are just that, regardless. But do not generalize about people, good people, on anything but their demonstrated behavior. You will find many new friends. You will also find an intolerance for bad people among your own ilk. It's hard. You can do it. It is the only way. RIP Richard Collins III.
