Why not Love?

To the Editor:

The answer to Jacob Jaggy’s question of Oct. 30: “Why not Love?” I believe it is because Abraham’s Lincoln’s Better Angels of our nature are nowhere in sight. They are buried under the avalanche of hateful and fearful rhetoric that overwhelms us every day.

Fortunately, those angels are still accessible to us. They are safely hidden away within each of us. You will recognize them as our innate knowledge of right and wrong. No one has to tell us that, but our Better Angels can remind us in times like this. By calling upon our Better Angels, we can rediscover the meaning of love and make a better life for ourselves and the world we live in.
