A Small Request

In these troubled times maybe we can all agree on one thing.

I know it seems like a little problem, an item of no significance, particularly in the current climate when danger lurks at every corner and the destruction of the things we as a people hold dear seems, for the first time in so many years, a shockingly real possibility, so I make this appeal with all due humility and the full awareness that there are considerably more important issues to worry about but, please, would it be too much to ask for all of us to agree that in 2017 we will do everything in our power to prevent the phrase “And yet, and yet” from appearing in any written form, print, digital or otherwise? I really believe it would make a difference for the better in all our lives. Thank you.
