Prior to the election two residents in the same suburban neighborhood had a friendly sign battle going, each one seeing who could get the most and the biggest signs for his presidential candidate. It was a good-natured competition.
Wednesday morning, when another resident of that neighborhood came outside at 6:30, the Obama supporter already had removed all of his signs. He felt it important to show respect to those who supported Romney.
Since it was a friendly competition I like to think the Romney supporter would have done the same if his candidate won.
We can indeed differ and yet do so in a civil manner.
