At the end of this election, I have one request: Be kind to each other.
Be kind to those who are different from you. Be kind to those with whom you disagree.
And be kind to the journalists, too. Please.
I say this as someone who works as a copy editor in a newsroom.
People don’t always like what we publish, and that’s OK. We don’t always like the things we’re covering, but we cover them anyway.
But there’s no reason for any of us to be unkind just because we don’t like something.
