And yet your bio reads “worked in our nations space program.” Do you mean “our nation’s” (one) or “our nations’” (plural)? Not a grammar nitpick at all; I’m just trying to get a better sense of the way you and maybe others see the country. I get the impression that there’s a bigger sense of unity when it comes to some issues compared to others.

I agree the complexities are overwhelming and I do understand them better after your explanation; thanks for commenting. Though as I said, while reading your bio I couldn’t help but think of how odd it is that a country can unite behind a goal as complex and ambitious as sending a man into space, but fractures itself into inaction when it comes to stopping a deranged man from buying lethal weapons. That’s something I don’t think I'll ever understand.
