100 Words -- Paranoia Overriding Reason

Tom Brokaw spoke out last night against Donald Trump’s call to ban Muslims from entering the country until further notice. Brokaw was blunt in his condemnation of “paranoia overriding reason,” moving in his reminder of the sacrifices Muslims have made to protect this country. We haven’t had a moment like this since Walter Cronkite came out against the Vietnam War. In that case, the country was ready to hear what Cronkite had to say. And he had a moral authority that few since could claim. I am glad that Tom Brokaw spoke out. I just wonder how many were listening.
