Did you ever think that the fearmongering tactics that went on in this election would do deep damage to individuals already troubled for many other reasons? Make the pain they were already experiencing in their normal life that much more unbearable?
The anxiety issues faced by so many individuals in this country have gotten worse since 9/11 not better. And the campaign rheotoric I heard coming out in this election --and I'm not pointing any fingers 'cause both groups did their share-- hasn't helped.
Besides his Mom picked that as the main source of his despondency is the one thing that she can put her finger on as a cause, the first thing that comes to mind or the maybe the thing he was talking about the most. I'm very sure there were a lot of other factors here that had nothing to do with the election. This was just perhaps the last straw for him.
In the grand tradition of the Southern lady I simply say to you who express the same belief that is shown in the above quote ....Well, bless your soul
And anyone that has ever lived in the South can tell you that isn't a blessing
