I know how it feels. I lost a best friend to Republicanism, too. She was always that Conservative Republican — but I ignored it. Because I wanted my friend, the friend who let me sit on the floor with my head in her lap while I cried.

Thanks for sharing this. It’s so good that it hurt to read it — the pain is palpable.

I hope you’ll find another bestie…I know it won’t be the same kind of good, but it will be ok.
