These are situations or themes that seem to repeat themselves. Even though no two events are exactly alike, if the umbrella . . .
I suspect many of us are ready for an antidote to the unkindness we've seen in recent days: the terrible things being said by politicians, by Facebook posters, by commenters, by people.
